Creating Balance in Your Life

Balance Your Life! Reduce Stress! Enjoy Life!

Are you interested in creating a healthy, balance for life?

If your answer is “yes” then congratulations! You are in good company! 

One of the top 5 reasons that people choose to work with a life coach is to help them create more balance in their lives.  A balanced life is your foundation for success.  It enables you to understand and deal with excess stress and helps you achieve the things you want in your life.

Canadian Living’s Linda Barnard writes:

Life coaches work much like personal trainers.

They help you pinpoint where you are in your life and help you set goals for your future by giving you “life-fitness” tests.

Then they tailor a program that will help you succeed with the understanding that, like an athlete, you have to be willing to work hard to achieve what you want.

As your coach I will ask you to begin building your foundation by exploring your life from 8 different perspectives.  You’ll use a tool called the Wheel of Life. This is just one of many tools that coaches use to assist people to discover and achieve balance.

Wheel of Life

See If Your Life Is Balance. Try this yourself!

  • Make a circle on a piece of 8 1/2” x 11” paper.
  • Use the whole page. 
  • Divide the circle into eight equal pieces like wedges of a pie.
  • On each wedge write one of the following:  career or work, finances, family and friends, physical environment, learning, spirituality, health and fitness, relationships.
  • Now, rate each category in terms of how satisfied you are now.
  • Rate yourself from 0 to 10 with 0 being closest to the middle and 10 being along the outside of the wheel. 
    (0 being not satisfied and 10- very satisfied)
  • Connect the dots to form a circle.

Most people find that their wheels are slightly crooked. The idea is not to keep all 8 areas of your life in perfect balance. The idea is to become aware of were you might want to set some goals and begin to make changes in you life.
