The key to feeling balanced is not trying to balance at all. If you're feeling overwhelmed, take a few minutes and soak up some relaxation, encouragement and lens changing words that will shift you from feeling overwhelmed to feeling energized and focused on your priorities.

Redefine Balance
Balance is something I once thought was something we should focus on and achieve; for example, 50% personal life and 50% work. I learned that there is a better way to view “balance”, which doesn’t necessarily have to be equal in terms of “spreading the load”. A helpful way to look at it is to define our priorities and focus on them. Some priorities may take more load than others, but that’s okay. Sometimes we have a long to-do list that may never get completed, and that’s also okay, as long as we focus on priorities and get the important things done day by day.
