A popular quote says that balance is not something you find, it’s something you create. While I was homeschooling my seven year old this week one of the health assignments was to go outside and practice balancing, hop on one foot etc. It got me thinking that just as if we wanted to have better physical balance we would practice different balancing exercises we also need to practice if we want to create balance in our life. How do we do this? First step is becoming aware of where our imbalances are in our life. It sometimes takes courage and/or an ego check to admit where we are imbalanced. Once we know what’s not balanced we can start making small changes. Finding an accountability friend always helps too. It all starts with pausing, breathing deeply into our bodies and opening our heart to what/who/where could use more of our loving attention and then making a plan to slowly create space in our day to find balance.
