I also find that it is hard for me to focus on and be good at too many things at one time. When I’m being really good in one area, that usually means another area gets a bit neglected. I have a couple of large areas of focus, high nutrition foods, healthy relationships, exercise and stress management, reducing my toxic load, employment and household responsibilities. I have yet to create a balance in my life where all get an adequate amount of attention. Instead I tend to cycle through them, I focus on a few areas more so than others, try to find routines and hope that some of the good habits stick when I put that area on the back burner. I can tell you that household responsibilities usually get the lowest priority and work and relationships tend to stay near the top.
What works for me is to set intentions at the beginning of each month. I find if I write down what I want to accomplish both in my work and personal life I am far more likely to get it done. In January I was very focused on food with the detox, but I didn’t set any exercise goals, and I found I rarely made it to the yoga classes or gym. This month I set self-care as a higher priority, so I’ve made it to the chiropractor, and I’m taking time for meditation and rest. I forgot to set my exercise goals so I haven’t accomplished them yet. So tonight I set some realistic goals and put them on my cork board above my desk. They are modest, but they can be built upon. The next step is to figure out how and when I will take the action, put them on my calendar and do it.
