balance, life

What is Balance?

Balance is defined as “a condition in which different elements are equal or in the correct proportions.” So what does this mean? Well, it represents having the right amount of everything you need in life to be happy. And I’m not talking materialistic things, I’m talking the roles you play in your life.

For me, my major roles have always been employee, student, and friend. My dad constantly told me to make sure to balance work, school, and social interaction. I’ve realized over the past couple of years that my roles have changed, and thus my ideal balance changed with it. And that’s totally okay. Everyone has different categories to balance, and each category may hold a different weight in your life. The concept of balance is so individualized and adaptable, which is why it’s important to find yours. So, let’s talk about how to do just that.

How to Find Your Balance

First, you need to think about the things that are the most important to you. What are your priorities? Sports? Family? School? Remember, your priorities can (and most likely will) be different from the other people in your life. Don’t choose these based on what you think you’re “supposed” to prioritize – really listen to what YOU want and what’s important to YOU. This should include things that make you happy now as well as things you believe will lead you to happiness in the future (i.e. school).

You can use the resources below to access a Priorities spreadsheet template to help get you started on your list.

Basically, find out what your priorities are and make time for them.

Once you have your list of priorities in order, it’s time to translate these into roles. While this isn’t necessary, it is super helpful. Turning your priorities into roles helps you better connect with these concepts and truly perform them to the best of your ability. They are no longer just things you need to get done, they become who you are and who you want to be. If you prioritize sports, then one of your roles is an athlete. If you make social interaction a priority, then your role is a friend. And so on.

Congrats! You figured out what your roles are. Now it’s time to execute them in a way that is balanced for you. Try to dedicate a chunk of time every day to each of your roles if you can. Being able to experience all the things that make you happy each day makes such a difference. Of course, life can’t be scheduled. Things happen. Sometimes you have to sacrifice a hang-out with your friends to get an assignment done. You know what’s important, but really try to make time to partake in your other roles. You did list them as priorities, after all.

Here are some small ways to make time for yourself even when it seems impossible.

I cannot stress enough how crucial it is to make time to do everything that it is important to you every single day. That’s balance. You don’t necessarily have to play each role equally – you can be a student most of the time and split the rest of your time between being a friend and being an employee. You can spend as much time in each role as you need to make you feel happy and complete. Finding your balance and maintaining it, and adjusting as needed, can be life-changing… trust me. You got this.
