How do you balance your life and writing? (multiple choice)
Get a good nights rest
Excercise often
Laugh a lot
Do a good deed for someone
Play with kids
Set aside time to read for pleasure
Keep a nearby supply of chocolate!
Prioritize writing schedule
Get calendar-organized
Think positive
Budget money for mental peace
Look at time as being plentiful, not short
Let dusting “go” in your home
Ask family to honor writing time
Cat Nap often
Spend regular time on a hobby
Love yourself; no nit picks here
Play with pets, walk your dog
Just Do It, like Nike!
What's balance? Is that a yoga move?
