How do you balance work, family, friends and leisure?

By taking time to breathe, one step at the time,  and by closing some doors,  just enjoying the moment, I'm trying to give time to every ''field'', have fun in everything I do, sometimes is hard, but I don't take everything too seriously. I love my life so it helps.
