I’m constantly reading books and articles on the web telling me what I should or shouldn’t be doing to make myself a better and more fulfilled person.

It gets quite overwhelming at times.

‘Don’t waste time, spend it more wisely’
‘Read facts. Make up your own mind’
‘Stay off social media. Do something more worthwhile with your time’
‘Stop chasing happiness – it only comes as a by-product’

Don’t get me wrong. A lot of advice is probably spot on. It’s just that you can’t do everything.

Ultimately what we all need is ‘balance’.
– The ability to go on social media AND spend real time with friends.
– Time to read an excellent nonfiction work, AS WELL AS the new Lee Child
– Energy to play squash AND watch the England game
– Eat a healthy salad AND an indulgent chocolate fondant

So by all means, I’ll keep reading all the great advice but offset with my own little vices.
