Oftentimes, we value the tools we use for work and attempt to tuck away all signs of the things we do for play. A balanced lifestyle includes work and leisure time. Your living space can and should reflect this concept. Instead of cramming rackets, balls, bats, skates, skis, and other equipment into the far corner of a dark closet, create a designated area that will enable and encourage you to store the clothing and equipment you use for your hobbies in a more orderly, more accessible manner. Keeping your playtime items organized, attractive, and physically accessible may also have the secondary effect of encouraging you to work less and live more.
