Life balance is about making time in your life for both essential and recreational activities. It is generally held that an individual who permits one kind of activity to dominate their lifestyle is more likely to suffer from  stress and personal frustration than someone who has a balanced range of life activities. Thus, a mother who spends most of her time caring for the family and household and does not permit herself to claim time for relaxation and her own interests may - in the longer run - end up feeling used and disadvantaged. Likewise, the parent who spends long hours and weekends on career work projects and doesn’t find time to be with the family can easily become uptight and unfulfilled. In both examples, communication and relationships with others are likely to be adversely effected.

In general, it seems a worthwhile goal to check out whether your present lifestyle has a desirable life balance. If you find it doesn’t, you probably need to do something about it. The Lifestyle Evaluation Questionnaire contained in the Phoenix Self-Help Plan will be of some assistance in determining whether this is so or not. The Questionnaire is used to help the participant work out the areas of life where change is needed or would be profitable. This makes it easier to work out the goals and targets employed in working through the Phoenix Plan.

To help you think carefully about life balance in your lifestyle, I have included a table which sets out a number of life areas, most of which are considered important for living a full and enjoyable life. No one can tell you precisely what balance there ought to be in your life - this has to be your decision. Each of the life areas set down has some general questions which might help you to establish whether or not there is a need for a redistribution of activities and time in order to arrive at a pattern of life balance which leaves you - and those close to you - satisfied.

Hopefully, this will assist you further in working out future goals and targets if you decide to proceed with the Phoenix Plan.
