What is balance and how do you find balance in your life. Finding balance in life is easier said than done. Life is filled with many twists and turns and hurdles to overcome.Follow us on instagram@simplicityseeu We look at living life in its simplicity
As I stated earlier how does one find balance in life. Better yet the question is what really is balance anyway ? Having balance in your life is where you are able to manage and divide your time effectively, thereby having control over different elements in your everyday life and not getting burnt out in any one area.
Striking a balance life is no easy task and it takes a lot of self control as well as skillfully managing your time to carve out time for different aspects of your life. To have a balanced life is very important for both your mental and physical health.
Life has its ups and downs and it will never be a smooth road. Finding balance has to be a purpose because if you do not have balance in your life you will be drained out. Therefore how do you find balance in your life. We live in a fast pace life and without realizing it the stresses of life can creep up on you and before you know it you are overwhelmed with life and this results in exhaustion, ill health and frustration.
In order to find a balance in your life you must seek it out. In other words you must be vigilant about it. The first thing to finding a balance in your life is to have a strong sense of who you are. Know that you are important, therefore you will need time for yourself. Do not feel guilty to take time out of your schedule to focus on you
it is important to recharge and fuel your energy by getting away form your routine. Always find time to meditate or escape for moments and focus on you. This doesn't mean that you have to travel or even leave your house. It just means take moments to just be in the moment and be by yourself
In finding balance take an assessment of your overall life. Is there one thing that is taking up too much of your time. Yes in our lives at times we will have to work long hours, or if we are working towards a goal we may be involved with a particular project. But this should not be ongoing to the point where it is causing you stress and an imbalance
This would mean then you should find a solution to create the balance that you need by correcting what ever is causing the pain. You need to find a way to correct the situation to bring about the balance that you need. This may not be able to happen over time but you should continue to work towards the outcome that you need to see
Too often as humans we take on more than we need to. Know when to say no. You cannot sit on every committee or volunteer for several groups. Stop trying to be a super hero. We are only given 24 hours. I spoke of managing your time wisely in another video. Do not let any one let you feel guilty of saying no to be involved in something that is going to take away time from your life to create an imbalance
Try to avoid negative people and toxicity. Your energy will be sapped and you will feel stressed if you surround yourself with this energy. Even if it is family or good friends do not give in. This ties in back with saying no also
understand that in life you cannot help everyone, therefore do not take on people's issues or think you must solve their problems. Be polite and learn to walk away. I am not saying that you should not respond to friends or families emergencies or listen if someone is in pain. But there are some persons who are toxic and they are always negative. I am saying know when to walk away, especially if it is a pattern of behaviour
Life is short and perfection does not exist. Stop trying to impress everyone or think that you must have things all together or you must achieve certain things by a certain time. Compete with yourself and not anyone else
Do not put pressure on yourself to live up to society's expectation of what we should have , or where we should be in our careers. Let go of perfection and simply be you, and anyone who does not like it that is their problem.
Do not compare yourself to others. Know your strengths and weaknesses. Know that you cannot control another person just as how you cannot control the weather, therefore do not get caught up with what others think of you. Fix the things about you that you want to improve and use your strengths to help you
Every day we are given a clean slate, so each day start over , therefore when you make a mistake own up to it and keep it moving instead of beating up on yourself
Last thing I will say in finding balance is to love yourself unconditionally. Love all your flaws, be kind to yourself and each day tell yourself that you are a unique person who is fabulous. Find your balance in 2022

I believe in living life in a simple yet fulfilling stratosphere. Simple doesn't mean denying yourself of all the great things that life has to offer. Life was meant to be lived on your own terms and not on someone else's. It is about you.
