How often we hear from other people, Hey! You need to balance your life!
And whenever we hear it.. a vacation, shopping spree or date nights pops up! Well, to me, a balanced Life means i can work, and i can also do things that are actually considered productive, and just simply rest or having time for a Night Skin Care Routine. Or Like, finishing my Spanish Course to get an accredited certification. Or, taking online course, or working out and trying out different exercise. Although it is not wrong in taking a vacation or right now, staycation.
Doing something useful can possibly benefit me in the future, talking about when i reach 60 eh! But really, is it just me, or does any of you feel the same?
But making the commitment to do all of it is the real deal to me. To commit on saying NO to extra projects or Job (so i can rest, or enjoy some workout), to commit not to easily say yes to my son’s plea (so i can save more for what I want!) , to commit to 8 hours sleeping (no alarm set) and not checking on whatsapps or Instagram before bed . Its challenging. To chill and leave the stress when something doesn’t live up to your expectations, it’s challenging to stay “relax”
Being Grateful everyday and believe that tomorrow has its own way to deliver your blessings is one of a practise we want to continue doing.
But what if the day feels so hard to live? We keep going. We take a walk, we unplugged, we pray, anything positive and possibly doing. Some people find friends to confide in, some people choose to be all by them self doing the things they love doing to help them release the stress.
Building a balanced life is a learning process too. Cause no matter how tidy our Daily Plan or schedule is, there might be some unpredictable obstacles, temptations included!
I found this nice quotes yesterday that worked well to me….
. . . having a healthy balance is what I strive for, and I can say with confidence that I have been successfully working toward it. It’s been a bit of a rocky road, but without those challenging times, I wouldn’t have been able to learn from it and improve. Apryl Zarate Schlueter, Finding Success in Balance
