Break Down Your Life Into Categories

Break Down Your Life Into Categories

Life is more manageable when things are broken down. On a daily basis, it is helpful to break life into four categories:

  • Health. Without proper health, other categories are harder to maintain. Prepare healthy meals and make time to exercise.
  • Wealth. Wealth can mean things such as a career, business, or investing. Create a budget or design an investing strategy.
  • Love. Set time each day to enjoy your significant other, calling a loved one or journaling.
  • Happiness. Set time aside to do something that makes you happy. Some people enjoy a walk in nature. Others would rather paint or do another hobby.

  • Does my routine seem to be working or does it need to change? How can I make it better?
