Balance is a tricky thing: too much of this or too little of that, and OOPS! you are off balance.
In addition, human beings are complicated: We all have physical needs, intellectual needs, emotional needs, spiritual needs, and social needs. With all these aspects to our lives, it can be difficult to attain and maintain balance. Here are 5 ways to bring balance into your life:
- Exercise Daily. Your body was designed to move. Exercise builds strength, improves circulation, endurance, flexibility, and overall health. If you exercise too little, you tend to get sick more often. If you exercise too much, you may injure yourself. The right amount of exercise keeps you healthy.
- Focus. Your mind is like a muscle, in that it can be exercised to become stronger and trained to perform better. Learn to control your thoughts by practicing focus. Focus on whatever you are doing – whether it’s work or play – to train your mind to perform better. You can handle stress better by intentionally focusing on solutions instead of problems.
- Calm down. Riding a roller coaster of emotions wreaks havoc on your life. You can control your emotions, or they can control you. Bystaying calm and centered, you can focus your energy in a positive direction.
- Count your blessings. When you compare yourself to others, it’s easy to see someone who has more. It’s also just as easy to see someone who has less. Be grateful for what you have. The secret to happiness is not getting what you want, but wanting what you get.
- Associate with positive people. As much as 80%of our happiness comes from others. If your friends are negative, angry, or unhealthy, you will tend to be negative, angry, and unhealthy. Why not choose positive friends who will encourage you to be healthy, focused, calm, and happy?
Most people are good in one area or another, but balance – by definition – means that one or two areas aren’t enough. You need to balance all areas of your life.
The easiest way to achieve all these goals in one shot is to practice the martial arts. You will get great, healthy exercise, learn to focus your mind, calm your emotions, and appreciate what you have. Possibly the best part is that you will make positive new friends and role models, who will help you maintain healthy balance in your life.
