Successful people often list “having it all” as one of their key motivators. We think this is great and want everyone in our network to aspire towards this kind of life.
But when you dedicate every waking minute to “having it all” certain areas of your life tend to slip away. You may stop prioritising self-care. You may struggle to attend family events. You may even find yourself wishing for more hours in the day.
This is when burn out often enters the equation.
Thankfully, there are strategies available to ensure you’re living your best life possible while remaining balanced.

Figure out what is important to you
Take some time to figure out what is most important to you in life. These things should become your “no excuses” activities. They can include things such as your career but should also include activities that help balance your life, such as family time, friends, and hobbies.
Prioritising your life – slow down
Once you know what’s important to you, it’s time to slow down. Stop responding “yes” to every invite you receive. Use your time wisely and for those who add value to your life. You don’t need to do everything single thing possible to “have it all”.
Practice gratitude for what you have
In order to truly succeed, you need to change the view you have of the world. By focusing on what you have instead of what you don’t have – you are conditioning your brain to look for and attract more of the good things in life.
Couldn’t we all use a bit of that?
Schedule time to recharge
Along with a fresh perspective – you should also schedule time to rest and recharge.
One of the easiest ways to do this is to ensure you schedule breaks into your day. Don’t push through your workload without pausing. Instead, take ten minutes to stand, stretch, walk, or even call a friend.
This is also proven to lower stress or anxiety that can keep you from being fully engaged with your work.
When combined these preventative measures have the power to starve off burn out, giving you the perfect opportunity to really “have it all”.
