5 ways to reach balance in life and reduce stress

5 ways to reach balance in life and reduce stress

Balance in life is simple yet complicated for everyone. You feel stretched from many directions such as work, family, financial liabilities, personal goals, and more. Which makes you feel overwhelmed, stressed, exhausted and lose hope. If you feel so, you need to relook in your life and dive deep into finding your balance in life.

Living with a balance in life means you are living in harmony and going with the life ups and downs. It comes in emotional and physical forms. Balance in life can be in the form of finding time to achieve what you want, finding time to spend with family or finding time for your hobby. It is the balance in all aspects of life.

Follow those 7 Dynamic Strategies for Creating a Life that Works to start the balance in a life journey.

The following 5 ways will make you reach a balance in life and reduce stress. Every step will be followed by a question that I ask my clients in such situations during life coaching or career coaching sessions to bring insights to you.

1- Life assessment as it is now

Before you take any step toward finding the balance in life you will need to assess your current situation. The first step is to take a self-assessment for your life. List down your life aspects such as family, work, health, etc. on a scale of 1-10 (where 1 is not satisfied at all and 10 is absolutely satisfied) rate your level of satisfaction in every aspect of your life. That will give you a clear overview of how your life stands now and reflects areas where you least satisfied.

Which areas in life are you overwhelmed with right now?


2- Eliminate, Eliminate, Eliminate

It is self-explanatory, simply let go and eliminate are the non-important aspects in your life. Those that take lots of space in your mind and affect your emotions which at the end affect your balance in life negatively. Take some time with yourself and practice self-reflection to define things in your life which is not important and eliminate them wither to get rid of them or delegate someone to do it for you.

What is really important in your life right now?

3- Avoid multi-tasking

 Imagine your life as a backpack, now start to fill it with work, spouse, kids, friends, toxic people, people who you care about, loans, lifestyle needs, hobbies, and more. How would you feel? How heavy the backpack is becoming? That happens when you can’t say NO

Balance in life is about regulating it, setting boundaries and avoiding the illusion of multi-tasking which you are getting fooled with. Time is the only unchanged factor in life, work on organizing it after eliminating what is not important you will find a space to make your life backpack less heave and slowly gain the balance in life.

If you have all the time you need in life, what will be the first thing you do?

4- Recharge your self-battery

Balance in life won’t be achieved if you’re constantly stretched out and stressed that will makes you overwhelmed and burnout. Take time to recharge yourself through a quiet relaxing time with yourself, family, friends, practice meditation, have a good sleep, exercise and anything else that makes you feel good.

What makes you happy and fulfilled?


5- Define your priorities


It may sound simple and over spoken but one major aspect of finding balance in life is defining your priorities through setting your life and work goals, making them SMART goals and achieve them. When you define your priorities in life inaccurate way you will take care of what is important for you and won’t suffer or run out of resources. Warren Buffett has a great strategy you can use which is called 5/25 strategy for setting your goals for success.

If you have all the resources, how do you picture yourself in the next three years?

      Values and beliefs differ from one to another, hence, to find balance in life, you should define yours to understand how you perceive the world.

      5- Avoid assuming

      This is one of the most difficult tactics, due to you and all of us never stop assuming what the others think or perceive things. This happens in a meeting, discussion with your spouse, family, friends, etc. we even jump into the others’ heads to assume what they will say next and quickly we jump to answers while we did not even listen to what they say. You should stop assuming right now, instead, start to actively listen and ask questions that will enable you to manage things effectively and reach the balance in life you are looking for.

              A Good Leader Knows the Team’s Colors

              A Good Leader Knows the Team’s Colors

              A Good Leader Knows the Team’s Colors


              Leadership can be a very challenging task. As leaders, we don’t always get to choose who is on our team. In fact, very often a leader inherits a team, of which most of the members have been there far longer than the leader, and may even know more about the work than the leader. Whatever the situation, one of the responsibilities of a leader is to motivate the team to all work together towards the common goal. This can be a daunting challenge. So often the team is comprised of very diverse members, each with their own strengths, weaknesses, and work styles. The team dynamics are also often complicated by internal disagreements and personal conflicts. The leader, not only has worked with this group of people but also needs to achieve the results expected by their superiors.

              Leaders can greatly benefit from being able to identify the types of personality characteristics of team members. By understanding the basic personality types, the leader can use the individual strengths of members for the good of the team, as well as assign tasks that individual team members naturally excel in. A leader can also learn to communicate in a way that is motivating, by taking into account the needs, values and working preferences of different team members.

              A good leadership quality is to give the greatest results by working and utilizing the strengths and working style characteristics of the personalities on the team. By correctly positioning the individual members strengths and compensating for weaknesses, the leader can bring the team into a productive balance and harmony.


              Four main personality types:

              A brief overview of the different values and working styles of the four main personality types demonstrates the importance of this knowledge being part of the successful leadership toolbox. The four types of personality will be described using the colors Gold, Blue, Green, and Orange.

              Good leader

              The Gold:
              The strong Gold employee takes work and responsibility very seriously. Gold personalities want to contribute, be part of the team, and to be successful and productive. They respond well to recognition, rewards, and incentives. However, Gold team members need well-definedresponsibilities and structure, firm expectations and timelines as well as being reassured from the authority that they are on the right track.

              The Blue:
              The strong Blue personality needs an open, social atmosphere to be able to work well. Relationships are very important for them, and they need the freedom to be able to nurture relationships with coworkers, customers, and employers. Conflict and intense competition are painful for a strong Blue, but they will thrive in a positive, creative, service orientated atmosphere.

              The Green:
              A strong Green personality is more noted for expertise rather than people skills. They are excellent working with facts, data, research, and analytical projects. Greens shine in their ability for designing, understanding complex systems and strategy. Facts are of utmost importance for the Green, but they have a weakness for routine follow through and are somewhat insensitive in social interactions.

              The Orange:
              Orange team members are noticeable by their energy, skill, and creativity. A key factor for an Orange is the freedom to be able to use their skills and abilities. If there is too much structure, or their boss is very authoritarian, the orange personality feels blocked and does not function well. Orange personalities like people and work well in a spirit of teamwork, competition, and camaraderie. They are action-orientated, though and become impatient with prolonged talking and detailed administrative tasks.

              Final Thoughts:
              During my leadership coaching sessions, I focus with my client on the importance of understanding his team personalities and how to deal with the team differences in order to reach a high level of transformational leadership that he/she aim to reach. A leader, by knowing the colors of his team, can use this knowledge to blend the team members into a unified, well coordinated picture poised for success. By facilitating each team member to function in their areas of natural strength and motivating them by communicating in a way that inspires harmony and teamwork, the leader is well on the way to achieving extraordinary results.
