Balancing the elements of your life is about finding the right mix of time to spend on yourself, family and friends and work without becoming distressed. When you’re balanced, you don’t regularly sacrifice one of those elements for another. A little stress is not only inevitable, of course, it’s okay; but the flow of your life shouldn’t weigh you down or make you feel overwhelmed.
Here are some ways to put back balance in your life: Walk in nature, sleep well, practice gratitude, indulge in play, eliminate unnecessary projects, go out for a meal if you can, take time to be silent and make time for worship.
