What is balance?
Balance is a word that is often used, but how does it apply to wellness? Having a balanced life decreases stress, improves self esteem, and increases functioning. But how is balance achieved?
First, look at all the following areas in your life and determine if they currently feel balanced:
Next, write down what you are currently doing to achieve balance in these areas, and what you would like to do. Add the items you feel would help you achieve more balance to your daily routine. Try it for a week and evaluate how it is working for you. How did you feel? What worked? What didn’t? How did you feel? Make any needed adjustments and try it for another week. Once you determine the activities that help you achieve the most balance, continue them and celebrate the balanced lifestyle and wellness you are experiencing!
