Living A Life Of Balance
Here are three simple ways to help
start us in our journey to finding inner peace, harmony
and life balance:
Living a life of balance is essential to good mental and
physical health. Here we share 3 simply ways to live a more balanced life.
It can be overwhelming and frustrating when life
seems un-controllable. When we lose control of daily situations, it can feel
like we are being pulled in different directions. Life simply becomes
No matter how stressed out we can get, know though that
keeping our life balanced is not that difficult. Living a life of balance is
important and there is no need to leave
our job and our family or even run away and hide in a far away place just to
feel at peace and in control. The truth is, life balance begins within us
first and foremost - regardless of what is happening around us.
1) Find some quiet time. Personal
time is one of the things that get sacrificed when
people get busy. We tend to focus all our energy to
helping others, trying to accomplish more than one thing
at one time, meeting goals, crossing off to-do lists and
just trying to accomplish everything we possibly can.
To enjoy a balanced life, we need
to remember that quiet time for ourselves is extremely
necessary. It is easy to say that we do not have enough
time for ourselves. It's funny though that when a
situation comes up where we need to allocate some time,
we are able to make time for that project. Situations
like this actually make us more focused, more energetic
and more productive which in turn makes us happier. It
is not impossible to find some quiet time for ourselves.
When we do, we should enjoy and appreciate the silence;
certain activities like meditation or reading can surely
turn stress into peace and ultimately happiness..
2) Take time for self-care. We must
take some time to do the things we enjoy so we can love
ourselves everyday. Some things we can do to nurture
ourselves are: making sure we get a full 8 hours of
sleep, eating a balanced diet, getting a good amount of
exercise and also positive self-talk.
When we are tired or stressed out,
even the littlest problem can become a nightmare. But,
when we are rested and relaxed, we are able to see
things in a different light - we tend to see the
positive in most situations. When we take the time to
take care of ourselves, we are able to replace our burnt
out energy quickly. It is easier for us to handle
difficult situations and easier for us to find joy and
peace in our everyday lives.
3) Learn to be flexible. The
biggest cause of stress in most people is high
expectations. We are all guilty of this at one point of
time. We have a certain expectation on how our lives
must be and we get irritated when things do not fall
into place. Relax! Let's take a deep breath and try our
best to have a flexible state of mind.
We must try to remove ourselves
from the stressful situation and look at it from a
different angle. Why not try to go with the flow? When
we allow ourselves to do this, we may find that our
creativity in solving problems may come out. Imagine
being like a tree bending with the breeze. We can move
through challenging situations with no drama or
These three simple steps can
dramatically change our state of well-being. However, we
may also want to examine our outer life circumstances.
Pay attention to other menial changes we can make to
help support our inner work.
One example that comes to mind is
letting go of obligations that may no longer be
enjoyable and meaningful to us. Agreeing to perform
weekly tasks does not mean we need to do it forever
especially if it starts to drain our time and energy. It
is all right to let go of activities that no longer
complement the lifestyle we want so we can have the time
to commit to other things. By doing this, we can start
to create a peaceful, joyful and a more balanced life.
Finding balance in life is rewarding, but itís
challenging. Get the help you need at
