Bringing Wellness Full Circle

The Alphabet of Health–B

B is for Balance

Some of us can’t get off the couch, and others can’t get enough tough workouts. Some of us work 16 hours a day 7 days a week, and others…well, they just stay on the couch. Some eat like pigs and others don’t let anything not “diet” cross their lip, even refusing to go out with friends because of the extra calories. And some of us never take time out for ourselves because we always let other people go first even if it kills us on the inside. You get the picture. But the bottom line is this: there is no true health when we are out of balance.

So here’s a little bit of wisdom for all of us:

” Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some 5 balls in the air. You name them – work, family, health, friends and spirit. And you are keeping all of these in the air. You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four balls – family, friends, health and spirit are made of glass. If you drop one of these, they will be irrevocably scuffed or damaged or even shattered. They will be never the same. You must understand that and strive for balance in your life.”

Simple and to the point, don’t you think? What do YOU do to keep balance in your life? Let’s give each other tips!
