How to Have a Balanced Lifestyle

Physical

  • Get sufficient exercise. Regular push ups, sit-ups, crunches, jogging or walking are examples. Unless you are disabled in which case you can learn a modified exercise regimen.    
  • Get sufficient rest.  About eight hours of sleep helps the body repair itself. You may personally need more or less, as sleep requirements vary between people.  
  •   Eat healthier. There are several competing food pyramids, so pick one or two because following all of them would be too hard.   
  • Find time to relax. Just lie down and think about what you did before you started relaxing. Think positive thoughts or take up a relaxing hobby like sitting or sleeping.
  • Pick a hobby that you enjoy. Hobbies can counter daily stress. Unless the hobby is stressful, like base-jumping or self-mutilation. You could try collecting model trains or postage stamps.

Mental

  • Plan out your day, and set goals. Remember, sometimes life happens, and you may not have time for everything. Just be productive in the time you have.   
  • Write but keep it positive. No negative thoughts. If you have negative thoughts, do not write them down.
  • Find out and develop your talents. Go out and do activities to find what you like and then pursue the one or two that strike your fancy.
  • Keep a diary or journal. his would be a good place to write things. But remember, no negative thoughts.
  • Read.  Try classics such as Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Montaigne, Proust, or Tolstoy. If you are not fond of those, try the newspaper, a fantasy novel, bibliography, or mystery.
  • Try to set goals that are reasonable to achieve. Unreasonable goals are harder and will probably just lead to disappointment.

Spiritual

  • Pray effectively or meditate and learn different types of asana, such as: the lotus, the corpse, the tree, downward dog, the snake, etc.
  • Communicate with nature. Go outside, hike, go camping, or have fishing trip. You may find yourself doing most of the talking.     
  • If you are religious, study the Bible, Qu'ran, Gita, Ramayana, Guru Grant Sahib any Psalms, etc. Learn about Heaven and Jesus Christ, Muhammad, Buddha, etc.

Social/Emotional

  • Do a good deed for other people.
  • Cooperate with other people that you meet.         
  • Listen to other people. There is difference between just hearing the words and actually paying attention and listening to them.
  • Synergize mutually advantageous compatibility of elements, resources or efforts.

Material

  • Get a good education. To get a good self-supporting job, master the skills necessary for your advancement. That way you will not be dependent upon anyone else.  
  • The job has to be the one you love. "Love it or leave it."      
  • Money is not that important. Happiness is the most important thing. Remember, people on Forbes 100 are generally no happier than the average person.
