How do you guys do it?  How do you find your balance?

I find that I am struggling HARD with finding some balance in my life…  It may just be that time of year when I’m essentially working two jobs (my 9-5 and shooting weddings on the weekends) that has me all grumpy.  Adding social engagements on top of that (not that I’m complaining, I love my friends and family dearly), when does one find the time to do those things that nurture mind, body, and soul?

It seems that when I do have free time, I’m too worn out to make good use of those couple extra hours.

I need to make the time to walk around with my camera.  I need to make the time to try out a new recipe.  And I need to adhere to my goal of waking up with enough time before work to get a walk or run in.

How do you all get and stay motivated?


Nik - A few years ago, I found something out about myself: I couldn’t work a 9-5, a side job, volunteer work, writing or anything social if I wasn’t self-balanced. That made attaining self-balance a priority for me. I realized that the balance came naturally to all the other stuff when I was at my own best. It made getting up early to walk or hike easier. It made it easier to turn down plans when I knew I needed some solo time. I’m not sure I’ve answered how I stay motivated as much as I’ve answered how I stay balanced. I hope this was useful :)
