I resolved to address my work-life balance some years ago. I achieve this by dropping the the word 'work' and it suddenly took on a whole new perspective. 'life balance' allowed me to look at it without the emphasis on work.
But what about 'Christian-life balance'? obviously the solution is not the same in this case
How do you balance the necessary worldy aspects of your life (work, socialising with non-christian friends, possibly family if their not Christian) with your Christian life?
I often find myself sacrificing one for the other, any suggestions?

Yes, this may sound like a strange thing to say to someone who is seemingly on the outside (I was myself until very recently) "Christian's' are human too".
It is easy to dismiss a view or belief without really considering the individuals. To the surprise of a number of my friends and relatives I have become a Christian. To some this is a good as turning into an alien, and in some respects it could be argued that this is not far off the mark! lol
To take a more rational view;
It is just as easy for someone young to be disrespectful about older people, without considering the fact they themselves will one day become 'old'. Similarly older people can forget what it is like to be young and judge just as harshly.
Well, for Christians it can be similar (except not all humans become Christian), we are all human, just looking at life from a different prespective.
I hope, in my own imperfect way, to help clear the muddied waters for those with a non christian view. Yes I'll be truthful, in the hope they come to see the beauty in life I now see. It is often said by 'born again' Christians 'I wish I had become a Christian earlier in my life'. The important thing is not when, just that you do.
To temper that slightly, I would never try and press or cajole someone into being a Christian. It doesn't work that way, one of the beauties about it is that you only become a Christian by your own free will. This means you can relax and decide for yourself if you want to be. With that said my only recommendation is that you give some thought with an open mind and an open heart.
