Finding Balance in Life

Finding Balance in Life

You've heard people mention it. You see many experts touting their various ways to achieve it. But does the true balance in life exist? The thing is I am not exactly sure that you can ever have true balance. However, I do believe that there are things you can do to find more balance plus to live a happier life. We hope that this Finding Balance in Life post inspires you. 

Finding Balance in Life

For years, I had such a hard time figuring out what I was supposed to be doing and when I should be doing it. This has always been a tough thing for me because I balance so much as a mother, wife, daughter, sister, Scout leader, volunteer, writer, and more. I cannot even think of all of the things that I do sometimes because it's a lot. One day, I kind of had this epiphany and discovered that really self-care, the act of taking care of and doing things for yourself, is truly one of the best ways to feel more balanced in life. Here are five things that I do for myself every single day.

Finding Balance in Life

Check out these ways that we use to find a little more balance in our own lives.

Finding Balance in LifeEmbrace a healthier lifestyle

Embracing a healthier lifestyle comprises so many things like taking care of myself by drinking water, eating right, exercising, and more. A part of my daily regimen is taking AZO Complete Feminine BalanceTM Daily Probiotic for women, which is specifically formulated to keep that natural balance in check. AZO Complete Feminine Balance Daily Probiotic for Women has been proven to maintain and protect vaginal health because it contains the power of INTELLIFLORA. Who doesn't want that, right?

pH is important and AZO helps you maintain a healthy pH; plus it's clinically been shown to work in just 7 days. INTELLIFLORA is the only clinically proven blend with the 4 vaginal lactobacilli species most commonly found in healthy women. This helps you create the ideal environment for those healthy microflora to flourish. Maintaining the balance of good bacteria and yeast is important for women. AZO is a supportive and natural defense that allows you to maintain your feminine health. Plus pregnant women will find AZO both safe and beneficial.

Take time for yourself

Read a book. Find a great hobby and embrace it. Head to the gym. Walk around your neighborhood. Even if it's just 30 minutes, I carve out some time for myself every day. I carry a book or my e-reader with me at all times so when I have a few minutes, I can take some time to do something that is just for me.

Avoid negativity

Setting personal boundaries is extremely important to avoiding negativity. I have a friend who constantly complains and those conversations are so emotionally draining that I try to limit them now. I have so much to deal with in my own life that handling someone else's problems is a tough one because I am someone who loves to help others so I tend to take on others' problems as my own. By setting boundaries and cutting extremely negative people out of my life, I have been able to avoid a lot of the negativity that I found myself drawn into earlier in life.

Health and Wellness Goals

Prioritize what's important, plan it out, and be specific.

​It's time to get real about your schedule. Do you spend an hour or two on Facebook every day? ​Some of these time wasters can derail an entire day. Every week I make a list of what I need to get done that week and then I create a to-do list for each day. I have very specific goals that I want to accomplish each week. Writing them down makes me more accountable and prioritizing each item means I get everything done in the time that I need to do it.

Make Healthy Choices and Get Balance Rewards

Have fun, find joy & enjoy yourself

​I think that this happens to many of us. Life, am I right? We get so busy doing everything we need to be doing that we often forget to have fun. We​ don't laugh enough and find joy in everyday things. Every day I wake up and tell myself what I am thankful for. I do more of the things that make me happy and I never forget the things that bring me joy in life. Make a list if you need to and keep it with you at all times.

​Balance, at least complete balance, might very well be a myth. However, if we look at balance as an ongoing process, another one of our goals to be achieved, we can find a sort of balance that works for us and our lifestyle. Balance means finding what is truly important to you, setting achievable goals, and then working towards those goals. We hope that this 5 Ways to Find More Balance in Life post inspires you.

    2017 was a rough one…not because good things weren’t happening, but I was working myself way too hard. I can definitely feel the effects still. But I committed myself to to taking better care of myself this year. Sleeping a reasonable number of hours, eating food from my fridge and not a drive-thru, those types of easy changes that make a huge difference. Sounds like I found another easy change that will make my health so much better.

Seems like I never have time for anything but work, but I’m still trying to get back on track with blogging and sewing/quilting. I definitely need a better work/life balance!
