The Right Life Balance Assessment

 

Find out how well you have achieved the balance between life’s many activities that is perfect for you right now

How good are you at balancing various aspects of your life? Since everything is not equally important in life, it is crucial to have the right balance for you at this point in time. Part of achieving the right balance is knowing your values and priorities so you can allocate more time to those areas when time is limited.

People often looking at work/life balance as having an equal balance between the two. They view it as a balanced scale. This conception of balance is not the best because it does not take into account an individual’s current goals and priorities which can change over time. This assessment provides a comprehensive look at finding a balance between work, family, friends, activities, exercise, and time alone. It takes into account what is the right balance for you at this point in time. The results will give you an indication of how well you have currently achieved the balance that is right for you right now.

Please complete all items. Rate each item on a scale of 1-5. Please choose one number and do not write a decimal, such as 3.5. Select the answer that best represents your feelings, thoughts, and behaviors regarding your desirable balance. Choose how true each statement is for you.
