BALANCE LIFE FOR A HAPPIER, HEALTHIER YOU!
Life is meant to be enjoyed and embraced. How often do you find yourself working all day doing the same routines day in and day out? Do you feel uplifted and full of energy by living behind a computer or working endless hours? Do you often find that you come home from work, your children are needing your attention as well as your spouse but yet you're too tired to really sit and listen to what they have to say, need or want?
Most often than not, when you fall into stagnant water it's because you do not have balance in all areas of your life. When we become overwhelmed or discouraged it's because we're not taking time out of our busy schedule to sit back and smell the roses, or to listen to our children play or talk to a dear friend that you haven't spoken to in awhile. Life is about flowing with the stream, enjoying the brook along the way.
What are your hobbies, what brings pleasure? What do you like to do? Often times people really don't know what their hobbies are - if you don't have a hobbies then I suggest you take time to sit down and discover your truth and desires that are in your heart. By embracing the fun, childhood side of spirit life becomes more alive and vibrant. I love horses!!! They bring such peace and joy into my life. Each day I spend time with my horses, weather I'm giving them a hug or going for a ride. They enlighten my spirit in a powerful, spiritual way; they're always there for me as my best friends and love me unconditionally. I make it a point to be with them daily to refresh and renew my energy level. Doing what you love brings happiness into your life, it raises your endorphins which will also increase your immune system.
Surround yourself with people that bring you up and support you in your goals and dreams. Focus on the good in life. Pray often. Exercise daily. Eat clean, wholesome, nutritious food to nurture your beautiful gift, your body. Take time each day to do what you love. Laugh with your family and friends, eat dinner together at least 3 times a week and embrace life in all that it has to offer. By doing so you'll create a world of joy, a world of love and a world of peace. And after all isn't that what we strive for each new day?
