Finding balance

Sometimes we feel "off" in our lives. We may be doing too much of one activity and lacking in others. We need to find a balance. We found a great article https://psychcentral.com/blog/7-keys-to-finding-balance-in-complex-times/ that explores this balance.

Here are the tips the author recommends:

-Find a way to move and be active. This can be through various forms of exercise or going for a walk with a friend.

-Be aware of energy. This is both consumption and expenditure of energy. Find a balance between exercise, nutrition, and use of technology.

-Allow for downtime and reflection at some point in your day.

-Practice gratitude for others and your surroundings.

-Notice if you are moving forward or feeling stuck. Are you setting goals for yourself?

-Take note of your roles in your life. How is the balance between work, family, and personal life?

-Find inspiration in every day. Read quotes, watch inspirational films, and explore nature.
