When we talk of life, there are different aspects that wan can actually relate to it? One of those many aspects is the relationships. Did you know that relationships and life are connected to each other? One of the most important aspects of life is our relationships to other people. Like our relationship to our family, relatives, friends, girlfriend/boyfriend, wife/husband, workmates or colleagues, and other types of relationships that we have in this life. These relationships affects and could change our lives. Like for example our relationship with our parents. Our relationship with our parents either they are bad or good, they can still influence our future. We are what we are because of our parent’s love and care. Because of their love, we were able to go to a good school and get a degree. Our relationship with our friends is another aspect of our life that can also affect our future. If we hang-out with what they call “bad people” who will influence you to do something bad, this could affect who you will become in the future. Like what they say, tell me who your friends are and I will tell you who you are.
Our friends can either influence us to become a getter person or a person who don’t have any future anymore. On the other hand, there is one relationship that really affects the lives of many people in a very unique way. This is a relationship that set apart from other types of relationships. This relationship is called a relationship of boyfriend/girlfriend and husband/wife. This is different types of relationship because it actually affects all aspects of life from emotional, physical, mental, and even spiritual. A person can easily change for the person he or she is in love with. HE or she will even change faith for the sake of love. The love that is involved in this kind of relationship is an intimate kind of love. It defies all life’s definitions.
But of course, not all relationship can be good. Relationships can be very crucial because once a person break a trust, it ruins a relationships. It can even ruin a life. That’s why relationship should be taken seriously because it affects our lives. Nobody can survive this life without relationships. Relationships make two individuals connect to each other. Relationship could make two persons become one. One in purpose, one in goals, and one in everything.

In the world that we live in, there are different types of people and each of them live according to what they believe in. There are people who believe in God and there people who don’t. People who believe in God are called Christian or believers and people who don’t believe in God are called atheist or non-believers. But in this world we have the rights on how to live our lives. But they say that everything happens for a reason and someone who created us. In this article we will learn about how religion and life are connected. We all know that there are hundreds of religions exist in this world and each of them live according to their beliefs. Religious groups are led by their leaders. And whatever their lead says, they believe it and they live according to those beliefs. This is how they show their faith and they believe that they will be blessed by their God if they follow their church leaders.
But, how can we actually connect religion and life? It’s a fact that since ancient times, religion and life are already connected. If you read the bible and if you know the history, ancient people are very dependent and submissive to what their church is teaching them. How they live their lives before has been greatly affected by their religious beliefs. And that tradition has been passed on to generation to generation up to these days. Many people believe no matter what sect they belong to, that there is someone above who created them and whom they are indebted to with their life, and in return, they need to live according to the laws that were written in the Holy Scripture that they call ‘Bible.’ Religious experts would say that if you believe in the Bible, and you live according to its teachings, your life will become better, you will be happier, and you will achieve the fulfillment of life. The Bible is teaching that “man cannot live by bread alone, but by every world that proceeded out of the mouth of God.”
This means that in life, we don’t live only with the food that we eat, with the clothes that wear, and the properties that we own, without the word of God, it’s impossible to survive this live. We need Hid grace and mercy to overcome life’s challenges. We need His blessings to become successful in life.

Having a fulfilled life is one thing that you cannot put a price on. This is something that is very hard to comprehend and achieve because there is no exact recipe for it. Every person has his or her own definition of it and there are different roads destined for each one as well. But one thing is for sure, in achieving a fulfilled life, balance is a main ingredient. When there is balance, everything is in order and all aspects of your life is in harmony with each other. Unlike fulfillment, balancing life is somehow easy to achieve just as long as you get to meet the physical, mental, spiritual, social/emotional, and temporal aspects of life.
Achieving the physical part is very easy and all you need to do is to exercise, eat healthy, get enough rest, and find something to do which could be a stress reliever. Basically, what you need to do is to just take care of your body and give it its basic needs. With regards to the mental aspect, you can set goals and plan your day so that you will be organized. You can also keep a journal and write about your day because later on, you can use some of these experiences to solve your future problems. Reading is also a good thing because it can teach you a lot which can help you increase your knowledge. The spiritual aspect is something that you should not take for granted and this must be given emphasis. Regardless of what your religion might be, always take time to pray and meditate so that you will become enlightened on the things that bother you. Improving your social part can be done by going and hanging out with friends. There is a saying that “no man is an island” so take time to enjoy the things that life can offer us and spend it with the ones that are close to you. Lastly, although temporal things are not that valuable but it is also good to reward yourself with material things from time to time. This is not a bad thing just as long as you get to control yourself because there are some people who are addicted in buying stuff.
So for those people out there who are still having a hard time achieving their dream life, why not start off first by having a balanced life. This is not that hard to achieve if you are only patient enough. Just wait and see and in no time, you will get what you want.

Life always seems to get busier. When you are young, school seems to take up all of your time. As you age, you begin to have to balance work, family commitments and your own desires. For many, it can become difficult to find a balance that allows room for religion. Unfortunately, far too many individuals tend to feel lost when it comes to their own spiritual faith, feeling that their busy lifestyles simply do not jibe with a faith that requires time and effort. Learning to actually incorporate religion into one’s life is one of the hardest, and ultimately most rewarding, experiences of all.
It is often difficult to find a balance between religion and life. The difficulty often occurs due to how some view their own faith. Rather than incorporating it as a part of life, it becomes a separate issue. Many attempt to fit religion into a small slot in life, perhaps the same sort of space that is occupied by watching television or shopping. When this is attempted, individuals tend to feel unfulfilled spiritually and tend to have rather unfortunate attitudes towards their own faith. As such, it is important to take a different point of view when it comes to finding this sort of balance.
In many ways, religion should be life. Every aspect of one’s life should be informed by his or her religious beliefs. After all, religion extends far beyond attending a weekly service. It takes time to cultivate the attitudes necessary to integrate your lifestyle with your religion, and you may find that you have to give certain things up to fell fulfilled. Doing so is the secret to a stronger faith, though, and you might soon find that you sleep a bit easier when you actually start to live by the principles that you claim to believe.

Most people find that there is not enough time in the day to balance their work, personal and familial responsibilities. This problem is especially relevant to those who are trying to maintain a new relationships in the midst of it all. While it is not easy, it is possible to balance relationships and life.
A lot of people believe that it is possible to maintain work/life balance with time management. This is not true. As everybody gets 24 hours a day, it is not possible to fit in everything a person would like to achieve into one day. Due to this, people who want to maintain their relationship will have to make it a priority.
The first step of the process is sitting down and assessing which areas of the relationship are being neglected. Each couple will have a different answer to this question. Some will want more alone time with their partner while others are looking for more effective communication between the two parties.
Once a couple had determining what is lacking in their relationship, they can go about changing it. For example, a couple who do not get much quality time together could opt to go away for the weekend. Making small changes such as this one will improve the overall quality of the relationship.
Sometimes the relationship will be too damaged from years of neglect for this method to work. In this case, it is worthwhile seeking out the services of a relationship counselor. The counselor will help couples work through any feelings of resentment and neglect. In an ideal situation, the couple will rebuild trust and start seeing happier times again. However, it is important to note that some people do not invest in their relationships because they are not 100% committed to them. In this case, it may be time for the couple to part ways.

Although there is always room for the unexpected, the quality of our health and life is mostly in our hands. The actions we undertake directly affect us and sometimes we do not realize it because the results are not immediate.
The quality of our health directly influences how much we enjoy life so this is where we should start improving by getting better nutrients into our body. A better health can be achieved by doing sports, but not all of us have time to go to the gym or even the motivation. The good news is that you don`t have to. Studies showed that the people that live the longest are not athletes but regular people who do just enough physical effort every day, but not so much that would drain out the energy from their body. This means that taking a twenty-minute walk every single day whenever you have the time can tremendously improve your health. It may not seem much, but on the long-term the effects will be visible. Also try taking health supplements and maintaining the nutrients within your body, we suggest raspberry ketone.
Another simple thing you can do to have better results in your life, thus a better health and life, is to divide huge tasks in more and simpler tasks and do them incrementally. Huge tasks seem unbearable so we tend to avoid them, but if we divide them in smaller tasks that we can finish in fifteen minutes it will be much more likely to do them and finish them. By taking small steps and doing a small thing every day, you will reach your goals faster because you will be taking action.
Last but not least, remember to surround yourself with people. Loneliness is lethal. We are social beings and being lonely will affect your health and your general well-being, not to mention the fact that when you need help it is nice to have someone to call. Take walk, do everything in small increments and surround yourself with people and you will probably live longer and be happier.

Many people become so obsessed with work that they forget about the other aspects of their life. This is especially true when there are layoffs, since employees are afraid the same thing will happen to them unless they work harder. However, developing a balance in your work and life is necessary for your health. Listed below are some tips for you to maintain a good work ethic having time for enjoying yourself.
Put Free-time In Your Schedule
When making your week plan, make sure to allocate time for having. This can be going out with your spouse/kids, seeing friends, or even dropping by at the local bar. With this date on your calendar, you will have something to look forward to for the rest of the week. Even if you don’t have time for a full day off, a few hours of downtime can work wonders.
Avoid Activities that Waste Energy or Time
People often waste their time on activities that have absolutely no value, such as computer games or gossiping with co-workers. You should make an effort to avoid spending too much time on social media sites and instead go out with your friends in real-life.
Exercise is one of the most ignored aspects by busy people. Not only does exercise help you feel better about yourself, it also helps you perform better at the workplace. Regular exercise makes your body stronger, allowing you to work longer and lessens the chance of getting sick.
A Little Leisure Goes a Long Way
Set realistic goals that you can easily keep. For example, leave the office one hour earlier every night to spend time with your family or a hobby. Even during an especially busy day, you can still allocate 15 minutes of free time just to take a deep breath and relax.
