So, right now I am trying to balance the workload of the week, my family, and various other responsibilities that I have. I am thinking through what I need to accomplish and what can wait. This got me thinking about sharing some RANDOM thoughts on keeping life in balance.
Here are a few things that can get out of balance pretty quick and it's a good idea to keep an eye on them before they get too far gone.
Work/Life: This is a big one for me. I love to build things and I love to work. It's almost a bad thing for me that I love my job so much. Because, I know my tendency to go all-in on a project, I need to make more conscious efforts to spend time with family and keep that work/life balance. I do this by planning ahead and setting boundaries.
Diet: I am not talking about doing a specific diet like keto, vegan, or paleo. I am referring to general intake. Here is what I mean. When I learn about the latest bio-hack or healthy trend. I always remind myself to find the balance. I do my research to see if it's a good option for me and instead of rushing in I plan out what I want to do. This curbs my excitement and helps me keep a balanced intake.
Pressure: Pressure makes diamonds but it also makes rubble. Finding the balance between putting ourselves in challenging situations to grow and causing unneeded stress is important. It is good to push yourself but not so far that it causes more problems than benefits. Remember to take a break if needed. Getting some quality downtime to reset is good too.
Perspective: We are living in some serious times. It seems that the world is more polar than ever before and no matter what you do you are going to offend someone. Be sure to find the good though. Keeping our perspective in balance is MAJOR. Surround yourself with positivity and take the time to dance in your living room if you need to. Remember to have fun and if you just don't think you can... fake it. ;) Even a fake laugh is better than a grumpy heart.
You may have heard the phrase "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" well this goes for keeping things in balance as well. It is much easier to plan ahead and keep things in balance, rather than trying to get things back in balance.
So, as you go about your day, week, or month. Looks for ways to keep life in balance.
Until next time! Make good choices and stay healthy! 😀
