I don’t know about you, but I feel so off balanced. it seems when I have one area all balanced another area of my life is off balanced. its time to come up with a plan and figure out how to become balanced. but How?
I have been reading a few blog posts about areas of having a balance life. what I have learned from these various blog posts about being balanced is that there are Five Areas that need to been balanced and in harmony with each other. these five areas are: Mind, body, spirit, social and finance. if these areas are not in harmony with each other things just don’t line up. it might feel like life does, but soon down the road things will start becoming off balance. So how does one maintain and keep in balance in all these areas with out becoming overwhelmed and exhausted.
If you think you can attack all these areas overnight, your crazy and will overwhelm and burn out quickly. First, you must write a list of the different things that you want to work on in each area and then come up with a plan to achieve each item that you would like to have balanced.
Mind: I’m going to work on how I talk to myself. I have always struggled with saying positive things to myself. its easier to praise and raise someone else up then it is myself. its so easy to look in the mirror and point out all the things that are wrong. So, I am going to start telling myself “I am beautiful” and Praise my self with Positive affirmations. not only will in look at myself in the mirror but I will also post positive notes around my room with encouragement. I also, do a lot of reading. mostly romance novels. this month I am putting the romance novels down and going to start reading self help books in becoming happy and healthy and will blog about the books I read and what I learn.
Body: I am very obese and unhealthy. I need to change my focus and get back on track. I am actually getting my meds tomorrow once I get paid. super excited. because I will have my weight loss meds and my thyroid meds. I am also going to put together a weekly activity to do thought out the week. either dancing, going on walks, or working on my exercise bike. I am going to set a timer every day to work out and sit to it. I am also, going to go off soda and start watching what I am eating. going to write down my calories.
Spirit: I think I do okay in this area, for the most part. but I do need to set time aside to study my come follow me and read my scriptures and praying more.
Social: this area, is pretty covered. with going dancing every other weekend and spending time with friends. I do need to work on doing better on spending time with my family.
Finance: this area, I need major help. I am so in debt. I am putting together a plan and I will work really hard on sticking to it. I get paid tomorrow. so this will be a big test for me tomorrow when I sit down to pay bills and figure out my budget.
now, its time to put together a plan to become balanced.
what are you going to work on this week?
