Lifestyle Balance Chart

The Lifestyle Balance chart is powerful because it gives you a vivid visual representation of the way your life is currently, compared with the way you'd ideally like it to be. It is sometimes called the "Wheel of Life" because each area of your life is mapped on a circle, like the spoke of a wheel(click on link below and print)

Instructions: Evaluate each area of your life starting with “Sleep” and working your way around the circle. Make a DOT on the sheet rating how WELL you are doing in each area. If you are struggling make a DOT at 0 (struggling) if you feel you are excelling make a DOT at 5 (excelling). Once you have rated each category, go back and connect the dots in the center. Is the circle balanced or not ? This will give you a clearer indication of what areas you are most balanced in and which areas need attention.
Once you’ve completed the chart:
  • Look at the first category that is out of balance – example “Exercise”
  • If you have a low number in this area.. ..what do you think about this?
  • How much exercise are you getting?
  • Why is that a concern for you in terms of what your goals are?
  • What do you think exercising will do for you?
  • Have you had consequences on your health?
  • Do you consider yourself proactive or reactive regarding your health?
  • How would your exercise habits look to you if you rated them a 5?
Researchers found if you try to do too much too soon, you are usually not successful. You have to take small (baby) steps – to help build momentum before starting. Baby steps have been shown to dramatically increase your odds of changing.
  • If you were going to take baby steps to improve your number a half a point – what would you do?
  • Would you be willing to do a 45 minute exercise session on your treadmill once this week?
