The Relentless Pursuit of Balance

Walking_A_Tight_Rope

One of the hardest struggles while steering the wheel throughout life is keeping and maintaining a strong consistent balance. Walking a tightrope or slackline can teach you lessons on life and the importance of being focused on a steady balance.

I came to the conclusion lately that I haven’t fulfilled living life truly and deeply. Living a lifestyle that is fun, balanced, and social are key ingredients for a life well lived. There are many days where people across the landscape fail to take action on movement or do activities on the go.

What I’ve grown to learn, is that the more you incorporate experiences that require movement, the more engaging the experience becomes. Essentially, by being more engaged in experiences the more excitement you add to your life as a result. Having balance and reaching for a state of balance in life is not something that simply takes place overnight. It takes daily discipline and strong implementation of positive habits to truly engage in strong emotional experiences that every human beings ultimately craves.

Our body, mind, and spirit all deeply seek to be in balance.

For me personally, I’ve always struggled to find a true balance in my life. I’ve always had a tendency to dig too deep into things for a period of time or overwork myself through certain activities which can hinder growth. When it comes to expanding one’s options in life you’ve gotta make smart moves and have the right motives. When you dig too deeply into things for too long, you throw your life out of balance and sometimes cut certain people off by not allowing them access to your time.

The course of balancing work, school, family life, and all other personal daily priorities can truly take its toll on you if you allow it. The important factor in balancing comes down to the body and mind reconnecting especially in order for fun activities to take form. Participating in things such as exploration, leisure, and trying new activities should not be eliminated for long periods of time. The lack of new activities being implemented on a consistent basis will lead to complacency and a feeling of a rigid mindset. This lack of exploration and trying new things on a consistent basis makes a person too conformed to the norm, which leads to a lack of growth.

In order to grow as a human being and create wonderful things for the world such as a sufficient business or steady programs that improve the lives of others through valuable work which aligns with your purpose; one must learn to re-conquer them-self from technology and all the abstract distractions of the world.

A combination of stillness through meditation or yoga and daily movements should be a requirement for creating a stronger mindset and approach in life towards emotional experiences. Our ultimate motive as human beings is to form strong engaging experiences with other like-minded people. Stillness is great, but movement and physical activities are just as essential, if not more essential.

Whether it’s biking, dancing, riding horses, hiking, running, or walking through nature; it doesn’t really matter. What really matters is being active, still, and engaged in activities that you find the most fun for your personal lifestyle.

The time is ALWAYS now to participate and create new fun experiences that incorporate something new and engaging whenever life feels a little unbalanced.

The world is now more mobile than ever before. Whether you want to improve your learning through apps like Udemy or discipline yourself through adding meditation through Headspace or learn cooking skills through Yummly, anything is possible if you pursue it.

Rebuild your pillars and the foundation upon which you stand, and you will begin to notice a life of fuller meaning and purpose.

Personal power belongs in the heart, body, soul, and minds of all people. Balance is a focus on habitual behaviors and how they’re shaping your life.

To live and lead a happy life one needs to expand and encounter fears. To live a life of balance one needs to allow love inwards and negotiate with anger, sadness, emptiness, loneliness, resentment, and self-centeredness.

By bringing in more balancing activities into your lifestyle it can help you see the fuller picture in a greater light. By pointing your nose in a forward direction and imagining your heart as the center of your balance in the universe, you begin to take more positive and effective action towards your goals.

Redirect your mindset towards what brings you the greatest joy in your life and learn the truth behind your thoughts. There are certain thoughts that do not lead to balance such as thinking overly negative, judging, worrying, overthinking, and dwelling on bad experiences. By redirecting yourself towards joy, you begin to accept things such as positive thoughts, clearer thinking, savoring good experiences, and trusting other people who deeply care.

To maintain balance you cannot always believe all of your thoughts. Your negative thoughts that float around your head aren’t always the truth. Finding balance can be like walking a tightrope across water.

Fortunately, there are many ways to improve your life and begin to find peace within yourself and peace within your outer life. You control your own destiny, so if can manage to grab life by the horns and steady your mind and body, you may begin to reconnect to one of life’s greatest gifts.

Satisfaction and good health comes from healthy experiences as well as an inner knowing of stress balance and peace. No matter what branch of psychology you study you will find that being positive through the good times and the bad is the only way to take on life’s drastic measures.

Finding balance starts from within, but it’s a constant stride forward along with tugs from the sides and a little tug from behind.
