8 Keys of Excellence: Balance

November 27, 2017


BALANCE - Live your best life.

Be mindful of self and others while focusing on what’s meaningful and important in your life.  Inner happiness and fulfillment come when your mind, body, and emotions are nurtured by the choices you make.

When we’re in balance we make time for the things that are important to us.  Staying in balance is an ongoing process about choices.  We’re constantly making choices about what we do, what we say, how we feel, and what we think.

When questions arise about how we spend our time, we make choices depending on what’s important in the moment.  We may choose to give up time with friends to finish a project for work or school, or we may choose to put aside something we’re doing to help a friend.  Many of the choices we make every day - choices about school, work, hobbies, sports, family, friends, and health - are about balance.

Balance is not about rigidly devoting equal time to everything that matters to us, and it’s not about totally immersing ourselves in one area of our lives to the exclusion of all others.  Balance is about considering everything that’s meaningful and important to us when we make choices about how we spend our time and energy.  When we find the right balance, we are happy, healthy, productive, and fulfilled.  

Affirmation:  My choices lead to a fulfilling life.
