Balance…. Do You Have it?

By: Savina Brown

 

Balance:  a state in which different things occur in equal or proper amounts or have an equal or proper amount of importance

Source: Merriam-Webster’s Learner’s Dictionary

 

These days the obsession with finding balance in our lives is greater than ever. With our crazy schedules of running kids here and there, making work deadlines, getting a daily workout in, meal prepping, paying bills, oh and don’t forget to RSVP to that birthday party next weekend, it almost seems like a constant state of imbalance, chaos, and stress. How can one find balance when they are running from point A to point B to C and back to A?

A wise individual once advised me, “How would you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.” Balance can be found in a very similar fashion. Don’t try to change everything all at once; make those minor tweaks and adjustments to find that new equilibrium.

We tend to view balance as this constant state of being. When in all actuality it is forever evolving, it changes month-to-month, week-to-week, day-to-day, and sometimes hour-to-hour. So, become aware of the mental and physical sensation of imbalance in your body. Recognize when you need to reset your scale, make tweaks to your schedule, and get things of the most importance done. Let the little, not-so-important things get done at a later time, and rest assured that you will find that balance once again. Each experience is a learning opportunity and before you know it you’ll have a whole new set of skills to help you gain and re-find your balance.
