Dealing With Life Struggles

This post contains affiliate links.

I find myself in a variety of struggles every day in life like most people. These struggles include everything from meeting my deadlines at work, making time for my family, making ends meet, carving out time for my wife and working on our relationship to keep things healthy and happy and keeping up with my blogging and poetry. I sometimes reflect on how much simpler my life was 10 years ago, but at the time I was just as stressed and felt pretty much the same way.

So my ability to absorb and adapt to increased responsibility, roles and duties in my various functions in life keeps growing every year. I am one of those people who really wants to try and accomplish as much as possible in this short life time I have on the planet, and would prefer to end life with a list of accomplishments and a completed bucket list a mile long. One thing I try not to do is get to hung up or stressed over an individual struggle, because this can impact your ability on all other focus areas.

If you are stressed about money or work, you will see your time with the family suffer and so forth and if you are stressed out at home, it will impact your job as well. Finding balance to all of life’s struggles is probably the most important thing to keeping ones sanity and healthy state of mind. Some people use relaxation, yoga, or even exercise, dancing or another activity to help channel their energy and set their emotional compass right again.
