Make yourself busy and happy - Control your tasks.

Make yourself busy and happy - Control your tasks.

 People these days lead increasingly busy lives, accomplishing more and more with each passing month - more work commitments, relationship commitments, family commitments, social commitments, the list goes on.

Can't stay balanced and happy when you have a workload? Not. Don't get me wrong, it's a tough exercise to master, but don't worry, most people have their way of accomplishing everything they need to do and still have time for whatever they want. Do in life. It is the art of life balance. Here are just seven tips that I wholeheartedly recommend if you're looking for ways to stay balanced and be happy at the same time.

1. Check your needs.

Let's get down to business - if you want to be balanced and happy, you must ensure all your basic needs are met. Anyone who has stayed up all night to complete a task or project can tell you that as long as the sense of accomplishment remains, you feel physically destroyed and can barely keep your eyes open unless you have a drop of caffeine. 

You need to ensure that you get enough sleep each night, that your diet includes a healthy, balanced diet, and that your job doesn't completely dominate your life to the point of physically and mentally draining you. Keep your balance even when you're busy by ensuring your basic human needs are met.

2.Plan  far in advance as possible.

One way to ensure everything is under control is to plan as much as possible to minimize the chance of missing something and relax during your busy day. People can plan things any way they want - there are plenty of to-do lists and organization apps on every possible smartphone platform, or good old pens and papers work just as well (I use all of them).

I mean, it's impossible to keep track of everything, but at the end of the day, making sure you have a list of all the things you need to do, get and achieve by the end of the day ensures you get through your day, no matter how busy you are. , not only will you complete it, but it will also remind you of what you have already accomplished.

3. Stay nourished and hydrated.

It all sounds simple, but one way to ensure you stay happy and balanced at all busy times is to stick to a strict eating routine. That doesn't mean you have to stick to the same thing every day (in fact: go for it but in moderation); Instead, I suggest you eat three good meals daily.

It's for the generation of people, myself included, who see something hot from Starbucks as a nutritious breakfast; Coffee will lift your spirits for a while, but then you'll fall too hard.  be sure to drink plenty of water; Dehydration is the last thing you need on a busy day, and water also has kidney-cleansing and skin-improving benefits. So if an important meeting with a client is on your plan, you're bound to look your best.

4. Watch your emotions.

Sometimes we are late or just having a bad day in general, and our emotions start to spiral out of control. Anger explodes, tension mounts, and anxiety mounts. Our control over our emotional experiences can slip and cause us to act out of character, often to the detriment of those closest to us. When we are under great pressure, we break down, scream and lose our true selves.

So what can be done to change this? After all, clashes with friends and family don't happen. So how about looking at your emotions throughout the day, say every half hour? Stop, see how you feel, and see if anything needs to be done. Sometimes create a mental visual image of traffic lights; If things are going well, see the green light; Otherwise, use amber or red to understand what is happening and regulate these emotions. Take a deep breath, focus, and get on with your day.

5. Take time for yourself.

No matter what you do in your day-to-day life, one of the best ways to stay balanced and maintain a sense of happiness is to schedule enough "me time" in your pocket. It's better to set aside time throughout your working day than to rush out and try to find some kind of peace at the end of the day.

Make sure you have time for lunch and are not on the go or at your desk. Dedicate five minutes at the beginning of your day to breathing exercises. Make sure you get through your bath or shower without a cell phone, email, or anything more exhausting than relaxing music or a good book. Take care of yourself and make sure you have downtime throughout the day at regular intervals - they give you space to breathe, clear your head, and reassess the circumstances you found yourself in. work and your mind. To look your best.

6. Don't assume more than you can handle.

In this modern age, we expect more and more – never mind that we are already faced with impossible expectations and pressures from work, family, friends, and social media. We always seem to find more and more of them piled up on our proverbial plates. My advice to keep your sanity is to keep your weight to a minimum.

You'll have unavoidable commitments — work, family, friends — but don't sign up for extra projects and events that take longer than you're secretly comfortable with. Sacrifice: Saying no doesn't mean you give up; it just means you choose and share boundaries, which isn't bad and will be beneficial for keeping your balance in check.

7. Learn your human limits.

This last tip works especially well around New Year when everyone makes big resolutions that usually fall by the end of the first month – but let's be real. You are happier and more balanced when you have a big day ahead of you, full of mistakes, possibilities, and compromises.

You are not superhuman. You can't spend more hours in the day, and if you follow all the tips I'm suggesting, you'll get plenty of sleep and personal time anyway. You're a wonderful, flawed human being, so trying to get everything done in a few hours isn't just unrealistic; it also suggests you must sit down and reevaluate what's important in your life. Staying balanced and happy isn't impossible when you lead a busy life. Of course, they require some planning and thinking about your life and what's important, but implementing these tips can help you focus your life.
