That’s the goal – create a balanced routine. The schedule includes work, play, and rest. My calendar includes swim and yoga times, networking events, career search activities, and some socializing.
Then I do add in some “must haves” such as paying bills and medical appointments. These are not so much fun, however, they very necessary. Fortunately, I balance these “must haves” with the socializing. My reward for “taking care of business!”
Strive for balance!
