Finding Balance?

I've really been struggling with balance in my life lately. I find that I can totally fritter an entire day away being absolutely lazy - games on the computer, TV shows, etc. I've been feeling really convicted about that for quite a while. I know that leisure time is an idol for me and I can let my games petty entertainments totally eclipse God right out of the picture.

But the last two days have been the opposite. I've had two extremely busy days, running between errands with hardly any time to breathe. Well, I can breathe, but I quite literally have not eaten well the last two days because I had no time. This is certainly not laziness, but my attitude on these days has not been great. I get to feeling really put out that I can't catch a break between the phone calls and demands on my time. I forget in those days that God is orchestrating my life, that He never promised me comfort all the time and that my attitude is just as important as my actions.

How do I find a balance? How do I fit in harmless entertainment and avoid slothfulness? How do I fulfill my responsibilities with a good attitude? I seem to feel guilty for something that I'm doing or not doing much of the time...

I don't necessarily need answers or suggestions for these questions. I know they are just the perpetual struggles of life. I know that one of the key factors is prioritized time spent reading God's word and praying. But this is how I've been feeling lately.
