TRANSCRIPT:  Hi, I’m carol with Clarity Coaching services and I’m here to share some tips on how to build your best life.  This is going to be just a short segment on life balance.  Here we have the life balance chart.  Some coaches will use a life wheel that is segmented into different pie pieces for each of these areas.  Basically, you look at these different areas of your life and you rank how satisfied you are in each area.  So we have the area of Health and Wellness — How do you feel about your life as far as your Health and Wellness?  Career and Education, Fun and Recreation, Relationships — How about the relationships in your life? How fulfilling are they? Finances, Creativity a Self-Fulfillment.

So after you’ve filled out and ranked each of these areas, you decide what you might like to change.  For instance — Yeah, um, my career is great, but I never have any fun and I don’t feel fulfilled.  So those are two areas you might want to work on in your life to bring your life into balance.  Or maybe your relationships are great, but your career is not.  You just don’t know what you’re doing in your job, or maybe just lost your job.  So you would want to work on that particular area of your life to bring your life into balance.

One of the things you can do is look at your chart and talk about the different levels in each of the areas and just talk about anything that you can think of that would have to do with why that area was low or why other ones were high.  And then you could talk about what makes change in those areas that are low difficult.  Or it maybe you have made changes — How did that work out?  Then you could ask yourself — how does this issue or this low area affect your life? What support or resources could help you achieve that higher level in those areas? So you can ask yourself those questions and that is something that you can do on your own or if you want someone to bounce ideas off of and help you be accountable for setting goals and making change, you can talk to a life coach.  There’s a lot more detail you can go into in each of those areas to improve yourself.  I hope this helps.  This is also available on my website as a download.  For more information you can contact me at my website: claritycoachingservices.com
