Finding Balance – Creating Happiness

Finding Balance – Creating Happiness Do you find that life is moving so fast you barely have time to stop and really enjoy yourself?  Life is moving fast, but we don’t have to let it take control how we manage ourselves.  This is where learning to find balance comes in!  It is first about being self-aware of when we are out of alignment.  Second we understand the result can lead to stress, fatigue, depression and anxiety.  All then have a negative impact on our lives and those around us.

The good news is we can take immediate action to bring ourselves back to a state of natural balance where we can feel peace regardless of external circumstances.  Here are a couple of easy things you can begin to incorporate daily to bring balance within yourself to create long term happiness.

1.       Take time out every day for prayer or meditation. Wake up a little earlier in the morning and sit with a quiet mind for at least 10-15 minutes before you start your day.

2.       Go outside and walk in nature. We aren’t meant to live our lives sitting indoors.  Carve out time in your day to move your body.

3.       Be able to receive as well as give.   Have awareness of how much you are willing to receive as well as give.  Seek to find balance between giving and receiving.

Finding balance between life’s hectic demands and finding the quiet within ourselves will lead us to happiness and joy.
