In our day and age things move at a fast pace. Between emails, texts, TV, radio, and social media there is so much information out there vying for our attention. We have many commitments and in order to accomplish goals we have to work hard. So how do we balance our work/academic lives with our personal and family lives? This will depend on our values and beliefs, our personal goals, and which parts of our lives make us the happiest. Learning strategies and skills can help us identify what areas of our lives are off balance and enable us to slowly make changes.
