Living a Balanced Life

Balancing rocks on each other at the beach.

What does it mean to you to live a balanced life?

I hear this term used all the time, and have used it myself, but what exactly does it mean?

Yes, we should all have a desire for equilibrium in our lives. Equilibrium brings us a sense of peace and wellness when we achieve it. But do most of us actually know how to bring it about?

Work and pleasure should not interfere with each other. We might feel like a night out on the town having drinks with friends each week will bring us balance.

And we certainly have to balance our nutrition of healthy and not so healthy foods to truly enjoy the abundance of life before us, right? Many people believe that by enjoying their vices, their lives are balancing out, because they feel good in the moment.

Achieving equilibrium is a very exciting concept about maximizing the quality of our lives. We only live once, therefore we should not get bogged down in one aspect of our lives, to the detriment of the others. We should not want to find ourselves at the end of our lives filled with regrets. Sadly, what many people believe has brought balance to their lives was only an illusion. An illusion that has brought about more misery than it did in quality living. Bringing about equilibrium does not occur by giving into our vices. You might want to argue the point, but you would be living in the moment and not looking to your future by doing so.

The importance of a balanced life. 

Maintaining a balanced life is important for your personal health and well-being in this fast-paced, modern world. Sustaining a balanced diet, alongside personal fitness, can help improve and stabilize overall health and wellbeing. Nights of drinking, days of eating junk foods, and a sedentary life will never bring you health or well being. However, this would be what many consider as having a balanced life.

A balanced life will provide the following:

Take care and look after yourself.

In order to achieve a balanced lifestyle, you must make sure you are healthy. Your body needs plenty of rest, exercise and healthy food. It’s important to take some time out from a busy day to enjoy activities and unwind by reading or meditating.

Everything in moderation is a phrase we hear and use often. Everything in moderation means that there’s a healthy balance to your life, so laugh, love, live, and be healthy. Balanced living means having a positive outlook, focusing on good habits, and lowering stress.
