8 Areas That Make A Difference
Moving home to a new area, place and environment maybe an easy choice and decision making for many of us, but for others it can be a little more complicated or come with a risk factor. Perhaps being undecided with a
“ YES ” / “ NO ” / “ DON’T KNOW. “
Considering Moving – Things To Do
Ask yourself some important questions to clear your mind – have clarity.
- Why do I want to move?
- What are the benefits?
- Are there any disadvantages – if so what?
- Can I overcome any disadvantages – how?
- Can you satisfactorily move forward?
- What support if any do you need and from whom?
- Can I call on this support?
Write down the positives about this proposed move. Write down any identified negatives about this move. Ask yourself does the positives easily out way the negatives.
- Consider what you want within the next 2 years and in the next 5 years?
- Has anything changed that may alter your thoughts on moving?
- When considering your options is there anyone else likely to be affected by this move?
- If so, who are they, a partner, family or relative – does their views count?
- Will their choice be supportive and assist with your decision?
Visit your new proposed home a few times and bring along a family member for further input and for support with your final decision making. Ask yourself will it benefit and improve my job prospects – career, my family, is it an improved environment, will it support my health, well-being and will it improve my overall quality of life or for retirement purposes if applicable.
Consider some areas that may impact on your final decision. Place a tick in the boxes that clarifies a positive on a move, or a cross in the box that will not benefit a move. Consider all the people connected to this move in this assessment.
Either way, your decision can be life changing. Consider carefully what you want, be positive and decisive and go with your head as well as your heart feelings for what is the right thing to do.
Importantly don’t rush your decision and take the time you need to weigh up all options and choices available to you.
My 8 Life Balance Assessment chart
How do you rate your scores?
This can be very difficult to achieve, through work demands, home commitments and other areas of our lives that take up much of our daily and weekly time.
There never seems to be enough time in a day or week for us to spend the time in areas that we may enjoy or need to do.
We all need from time to time to relax, recharge and to focus on things that help us through perhaps difficult or demanding times.
Your health and well-being is very important so you can take on the important demanding or committed tasks. Therefore efforts are required to help us get a life balance.
There are of course some things we may not have total control over, but we can endeavor to seek the help we may need in these areas and to provide a better balance.
To focus and find ways to increase the time to do things that we enjoy or missing out on, [activities, family, friends, studies, etc].
To assess where you are at and how you can make the changes to a daily or weekly routine that allows for more time for you and what you enjoy doing. Take a look at the chart below and checkout where you may make a change.
Ask yourself how satisfied you are with your current life balance. Below is a chart of many areas that will have a major influence and impact on your daily life. Rate each section on a scale of 1 to 10. 1 = low, completely out of balance, 10 = high, totally balanced. Which section/s need attention and require ACTION NOW !
- In general a score of 6 or less needs attention and some action plan to improve that area.
- What control do you feel you have over such areas/s to make that difference or to better the situation or difficulty in place?
- What other support do you need to make that difference?
- Can you call on this support?
- What else do you need in place to begin the improvement process, give you that better quality of life?
Keep a diary or logbook to update any changes with a few brief comments. Then update your life balance score as applicable – between 3 to 6 months. Keep old copies to enable you to make comparisons and to view your progress.
