# Evaluate. Get a weekly schedule and fill out exactly how you are spending your time for the whole week, hour by hour. Then, at the end of the week, categorize each of your activities and your time into one of the six categories. Add up the hours for each category and see how they stack up. Not every section requires the same amount of time, but make sure that you are spending at least some time in each. Sometimes it’s surprising to see how you’ve been spending (or wasting) your time, so it’s helpful to do this every few months or so.

# Meditate. Set aside part of each day (even if it is only a few minutes) to have some quiet time to think and meditate. Think about how you are spending your time. Take notes on what is going well in your life, and also take notes on what categories you haven’t been spending enough time in.

# Learn to say no. You aren’t magic—you won’t be able to take advantage of every opportunity and say yes to every request. Learn to say no, and realize that you don’t need to do everything—you just need to do your best.

Remember that having a balanced life is a continual process and has no quick fix. Be patient, continue setting goals, and don’t give up!
