Learning to find balance is something that I’ve had to work really hard on, but it’s also something that has allowed me to get through my hardest days living with pain, illness and disease. Today, I wanted to share some of my key pointers which have taught me to be more balanced with health, life but simply being me.
Living with multiple chronic illnesses has meant finding balance in a unstable journey of life, but one I am truly grateful for walking . I believe, I needed to experience the extreme highs and lows of life, in order to try out different things and find what worked for me as a individual. It was crucial to find what makes me sad, happy, infact it was crucial for me to find my whole true inner self. I now know that if I don’t feel like doing or saying something, I don’t and instead I will do something like sit in silence through meditation or just simply chilling out with some TV or music. I know that one bad day or night isn’t going to have a negative impact on my lifestyle and journey. Learning to stay balanced helps me to stay content and more able to concentrate on daily goals, future plans and visions.
If you find yourself struggling to find balance, perhaps try the key pointers that have helped me ;
- Switching Off The Phone can be one of the best ways to begin to find balance, because simply stepping away from the craziness of social media is great for the mind, body & soul. Not being in the social media busyness for even one day lets us concentrate on ourselves and what truly is important in our lives.
- Step Outside on to the green grass with bare feet if you can, simply stand there in silence feeling the fresh air blowing through your hair and against your skin. The simple force of Mother Nature is another key pointer for allowing our bodies to feel more calm and balanced.
- Stop, Reflect & Refreshing ourselves by taking time to think and write down what’s most important to us. To do this daily is a fantastic way to bring balance into a busy of hectic life. Practice writing your list of goals or perhaps start journalling to release feelings whether they are happy, sad or indifferent. Simply by stopping for ourselves we are equaling the scales of the journey that we are walking and when we do this , things start to fall into place.
So, that’s my three important key pointers that help me stay more calm and balanced. Of course, not everyday is smooth but when I concentrate on practicing these features life is calm, making me calm so that the path I move forward in remains calm and balanced.
