To create a balanced life, one needs to find a point of equilibrium. Find balance between the spiritual, physical, mental, and emotional state of being. To have balance is to look into all areas of life such as work, relationships, health, and most definitely your mental state of being. It is important to sit with each area, giving it time and harmony.
It is imperative to maintain a balance. Or it could result in exhaustion and burnout. And, this will affect all areas of your life leaving you devastated. Yet, it is easy to fall back in line by creating a balanced lifestyle.
5 Dimensional of Wellness
Here are a few areas you can work on to live a balanced lifestyle.
1. The Internal/Spiritual
While putting the eight dimensions of wellness together, we often tend to forget the importance of spiritual wellness. Exploring one’s spiritual core is as important as exploring one’s talents or goals. You can ask yourself questions that will lead you to a road of purpose and discovery. The art of the internal is to sit with oneself and interrogate aspects such as values, and life’s purpose.
2. The External/Physical
We can categorize the external as work life, social life, family life, and entertainment. Notice the direction of the pull. Work on those areas, until we have found balance without sabotaging ourselves. Be open welcoming to the unexpected and maintain a positive attitude. Follow the next subject, to get an idea of how to find balance.
3. Maintain a schedule
Create a schedule engaging you. Do meaningful work. Focus on your health by finding a stress buster to cope with daily stress. Allow enough time for all areas and go according to the plan. Too much of anything turns out to be nothing. So to avoid something that would turn into nothing, it is important to create a sense of balance in all that you do.
4. Avoid Burnouts
To avoid burnout it is important to work with purpose and learn to manage stress. Exercising can be good to avoid burnouts, eating healthy with a diet that includes omega- 3 fatty acids work as a good natural antidepressant. Keep yourself organized, reach out for help if needed yoga and meditation can help, unplugging during non-working hours can avoid burnouts.
Detox is to cleanse your body, the internal and external giving it rest and nourishment, letting go of the bad so there is room for the good. By detoxifying, you energize your life. Detox can mean cleaning out your closet, your digital devices, your habits, and most importantly your mind. Believe it or not, our life is made up of everything that we attract our habits, rituals, and routines.
The tactic is to do everything in life with purpose and balance, giving the right amount of time to the five dimensions of wellness.
Appreciate yourself and celebrate the little accomplishments, listen to your inner voice, be kind, set goals, acknowledge and examine the internal, follow a routine, move your body and connect with nature. Never punish or sabotage yourself. Do whatever makes you happy even if it doesn’t make sense to anyone around as long as you don’t cause harm.
