Don't skimp on sleep by trying to add more events to the days. It's a stressor & gets everying out of balance. and Don't repeatedly hit the snooze button, either go to sleep earlier or take a nap. Don't let the snooze button become a habit that needs broken.
I learned about balance by balancing my time.
When I start exercising I hit the sleep button on my alarm clock. The music starts playing and I exercise until it stops (59 minutes) I can then hit it again or stop but that way I know I have to keep going until that hour is up. I can spend time on the treadmill or doing other exerciese.
To make sure I don't change my mind about working out in the morning, I don't allow myself to hit the snooze button when the alarm sounds...if I don't get up then, I'll not only miss my workout I'll also be late for work (or other activity). To make sure I don't miss my PM workouts, I change my clothes as soon as I get in the house from work...no exceptions and no excuses.
