Life balance and personal happiness

Does balance bring you happiness?

The idea of life balance, happiness and the promise of the freedom they provide is a universal desire but most people just don’t know where to find it.

Life balance and happiness is not necessarily dependant on earning more money, having an expensive car, or being successful in business. Other less obvious factors can have a much greater impact on our well-being.

Our age and stage-of-life can affect what makes us happy, along with our personality, personal history and life experiences. Life balance is changing and different for each of us; there’s no single model or ‘out-of-the-box solution’ that’s right for our entire life.

The search for balance is further complicated because personal well-being is given a very low priority at work, in schools and even in the social environment. Particularly for men it can be a taboo topic, so balance and happiness can be largely ignored or relegated to ‘I really need a holiday’ comments.

Consequently we don’t find it easy to identify or understand the issues which underpin our life balance and happiness. With effort and personal reflection it can be understood, planned and achieved like any other important goal in life.

The answer is not in a book or in a blog. It’s different for each one of us. As I’ve said, there’s no ‘cookie-cutter’ solution that can be applied to find the answer, so you must be prepared to look within.

However, there are clues that can assist on your journey of making changes towards a happier, more balanced life. We will explore this over the next series of posts, so stay tuned!
