In order to grow as adults, we need to slow down and embrace the children we once were. Our inner child has answers to questions that nobody can answer and, sometimes, we need to let our hair down and behave like a child.
Children tend to live life to the fullest without a care in the world. They laugh often, use their never-ending imagination, chase their dreams, and let go of the weight of the world. As adults, we tend to lose sight of the small wonders and we worry too much about life; our finances, jobs, kids, families, etc. We need to take a step back and listen to our inner child’s voice, encourage it to come out and play even for a couple of hours.
Try and talk to your inner child once in awhile. I know it sounds kind of out there for some of us, but who better to listen to you, than you? Partner up with your inner child when making a big decision. Ask her what he or she thinks about a situation you might be unsure of. When faced with a problem, ask your inner child to come up with solutions. Make your inner child your counselor. No one knows you better than you do. He/she can help you focus on the bigger picture

Rather, a new term, “work-life fit” lets you know that it’s ok to make a personal call at work or go to the gym during lunch time, but you need to be available for that 8pm teleconference with your colleagues on the other side of the world.
So, how do you fit everything, all the work, into one day? One option is to wake up early. Many studies have shown that more often than not, successful people get up early in the morning (and by early we aren’t talking 7am… Think more along the lines of 5am…) Experts also say that earlier risers sleep better, are happier and more productive.
According to the Guardian, Anna Wintour, the Editor of Vogue, gets up at 5:30am to play a game of tennis before getting her daily blow dry.
