Research from the U.S. shows that 90% of all sick leave is caused by stress. The following 11 tips will help you create your “perfect” balance in life. Start small and build it up until they are a part of your every day routine.

  1. Give yourself time to rest and recover every day.
  2. Work on your self-esteem as it is the foundation to perform and feel good.
  3. Spend time with the right people; people who support you and who inspires you.
  4. Stop comparing yourself with others as it has a tendency to make us unhappy, and drain our energy. Instead you should only compare your results with yourself.
  5. Dare to say no both at work and privately, it is ok to not always be available.
  6. Switch off your mobile for a while every day.
  7. Get enough sleep every night.
  8. Exercise every day.
  9. Be grateful for what you have.
  10. Set goals.
  11. Enjoy your life.

  1. Be grateful for what you have – when money is slow in arriving i remind myself that i am not homeless or without warmth or food and although i need money i don’t need right in this moment.

    • Food and a bed is something I am grateful for every single day. I have never been without but walk past homeless people every day.

      • I have been homeless 3 times but thankfully never had to sleep on the streets

      • I can’t even imagine what it would be like to be homeless. I live near a shelter for homeless people, and I thank my lucky star every day that I’ve a home.

      • it’s frightening. Since i developed Fibro people are urging me to sell my big house and rent a flat. I do need some place without stairs but selling my house is a very big thing for lots of reasons.

      • Selling your house is a big thing, don’t let anyone push you into it. It has to be your own decision.

  2. Seems like common sense, but I often forget at least some of these. Thanks for the reminder!

  3. 3 and 4… I had really felt bad when I realized the importance of 3 in my life but I am slowly accepting it, not everyone feeds my soul and I’m not everyone’s cup of tea and that’s OK…and #4, whew! That’s a toughy but you are right it is a real energy drainer and I can’t afford that!
