“Work, love, and play are the great balance wheels in a man's being.”
―Orison Swett Maden
Hustle, rise and shine, and repeat. This is our everyday cycle: to live the daily grind. Work is an integral part of our lifestyle, a continuous gear that moves for us to sustain our living. Most of us, however, experience a slump in our careers; or perhaps a period of burnout and exhaustion. Some, unfortunately, get the point of being finally tired of what they have been doing. We get to watch or read stories of successful people featured in televisions, interviews and magazines and wonder how they did it and got to where they are now. You then question yourself: Why can’t I do that? Why can’t I be happy while doing what I need to do? It seems that most of these highly-effective people have one thing in common: they find balance in their lives.
To work productively and lead happier lives, we need to establish balance in all aspects of our lives. This way, we will never feel permanently exhausted, allowing us to repeat the daily cycle of hustle. Enjoy moments of love with your family and friends, get that day off that you know you deserve, and enjoy even the littlest things you have in life.
We at Out and About Magazine will continuously encourage you to seek knowledge and inspiration to keep you in the lane of positivity and happiness.
