Tons of people swear balance is key, but really what are some real practices to apply?
- Just do it. Quit talking yourself out of the things you need the most of. Stop the excuses, the long list of other things you could do instead and most importantly stop spending time in front of the TV wasting precious hours on sitcoms when you can be sharing moments with others.
- Meditate always. Meditation will keep you grounded and happy. How do you meditate you might ask? It took me awhile to figure this out. For me it was a matter of focusing on affirmations that I repeated out loud. This made me remember where to keep my focus on the most important goals of my life. It also taught me to treat circumstances with love and also to disregard time.
- Self care. By self care, for me and many women, I mean the rituals that make you feel like a woman. Whether it’s a body scrub or a massage or getting your nails done or having a facial or a long bath. Take a dance class or do something that feels utterly feminene. These are the ways you stay in touch with your feminene energy and dispel all the masculine energy we can’t seem but to absorb in today’s world. These are all ways to self care and love yourself that every woman needs to adopt and practice daily, weekly, monthly. Loving yourself is that important because as we all know to love others, you must love yourself first.
- Gratitude. Every morning I am in the habit of stating 3 things I am grateful for. Within those three things would range my pilates class, my abundance, my puppy’s health, my boyfriend’s smile.
Being in balance isn’t always a 100% game. Sometimes you can only do this 60/40% of the time or 80/20 or 20/80. Just remember that you can always return to this space to attain your balance.
Personally, today I’m developing all these habits again. It hasn’t been easy to remember that these rituals require maintenance so that I feel completely balanced and in love with myself. After all, the most important relationship is the one you have with you.
Stay in balance! Wishing you much health and happiness.
