Balance; These Suggestions Work for Me
To balance our life is a great topic as the world becomes more complex with each new traumatic event around the world. Especially on social media, we are exposed to so much negativity on a daily basis. So, how do we find balance? Good question, isn’t it?
I believe the answer is different for each individual, but I also suggest that there are common threads of activities in which we can all participate and benefit. Keep in mind that less is more and don’t overwhelm yourself with a sudden change in your daily routine. Instead, make little changes over a period of time that are specifically tuned into you and your circumstances.

As someone who burned out three times on the J.O.B. over the last 40 years and subsequently, while working from home, I am living proof that balance is crucial to a healthy life. While I didn’t know I suffered from burn out until I went into therapy for PTSD, I know now and I take it very seriously.

What I Do Now
Yes, I work on the weekends because I work through social media. But, I work less and do more things to relax and enjoy myself. And, I don’t worry about taking days off when I feel a need.
I’m not perfect but I am work in progress! How do you strive for balance? This is a brief outline of how I manage my days.
- Meditation every morning and afternoon followed by easy yoga stretches.
- Get my dose of sunshine whenever possible.
- Balanced diet of low carbs and high proteins.
- Go walking each morning before anything else.
- Form a daily routine but be flexible.
- Work at the computer no more than 8 hours per day.
- Most importantly, I listen to my body and watch my behaviors to know when enough is enough, then I stop and relax.
