You may be familiar with the concept of using a pie chart as a way to assess your life for stress, balance or wellness. A circle or pie shape is drawn and divided into sections. The sections are labeled with various aspects of your life. You then rank each of these labeled areas of your life by shading in a portion of each pie segment. The center of the circle = 0, meaning you're less satisfied with that area of your life. The outer edge = 10, indicating that you are extremely satisfied.
Some say the wheel should be balanced so that you're not experiencing a "bumpy ride" as you navigate life. But is it unrealistic to strive for a balanced wheel? What feels like imbalance for one individual may feel like balance for another. I suggest using the wheel to increase your awareness of your level of satisfaction in various aspects of your life. Once aware, you can begin to identify what action or inaction is needed to move you toward increased contentment with life.
