A Well-Prioritized Life

What is often referred to as a “balanced life” by mass media is something of a misnomer. The idea we have in mind when we say “balanced” is not that all parts are given equal time: spending 8 hours at work, 8 hours asleep, and the other 8 hours evenly distributed between our familial, household, and personal demands. Not only is this not realistic, but it also does not allow for the flexibility required to attend to what is happening in our lives in a moment-to-moment or season-by-season way.


Making Every Day a (Piece of your) Dream Day

Imagine the next 24 hours were yours to fill with whatever your heart desires. No logistical constraints (travel, money, scheduling, etc.) need be taken into account. Where would you be? Who would be there with you? What would you be doing? How would you feel?

Now, consider what it is that you love about those particular places, people, and activities––what makes this your dream day? Is it spending time with your family? Perhaps it is solitude? Is it finally getting time to work on your favorite side project? Is it good food, good friends, and good energy? Is it feeling rested and relaxed?
