Be forgiving of yourself and others occasionally
Ease up, on yourself and people around you. It’s all about working smartly and keeping a dynamic mindset and going with the flow. Sometimes scheduled things might not happen the way you planned. But as long as it is done don’t fret and complain.
Too many choices or options in life don’t necessarily make us happy. When you get to do what you want thank the higher reality and when you sometimes don’t get your choice be grateful that higher force is in action.
Smile and laugh more. Learn every day. For example- watch the pressure cooker on the heat stove yet whistles!
Time is always ticking so it’s important to adopt discipline in your everyday lives. Learn to manage your time and the balance will come automatically. The only way to know your work-life balance 100% is to try out a few things. Trial and error is part and parcel of life. Creating this balance is a continuous process.
Be a little mindful throughout the day and observe the activities that take most of your time and manage your time accordingly.
