I personally need my exercise time in the morning to clear my head.  I have to do it in the morning because that is before I get pulled into things at work and out of my schedule.  It’s important to block some time for yourself even when you know you have deadlines and  could be working.  I know I am more effective if I get a little exercise in, so I make it a priority.

It may better to think of balance over the long haul – not on a day to day basis.  At any given time in our lives, we will be unbalanced in one direction or another – for those who get a lot of satisfaction out of work, that may be work more often than not, but that is not necessarily bad.  If someone is truly one-dimensional, then that would be lack of balance.
