I go through times in my life where I am very balanced...spiritually, physically and emotionally. This is always my goal, however, there are times it is necessary to be out of balance in order to accomplish a major task. The key is getting that balance back and staying balanced the majority of the time.
Why do we have such a hard time doing this? Do we not recognize the value? Do we not have the energy? Do we not know how to achieve it? Is it harder for women? Do we feel more spiritual when we are giving sacrificially?
If we don't recognize the value, we will never strive for balance...what is the value? You are in a much better place to serve if you are in a healthy place yourself. You can only give what you have.
How can we achieve balance?
Meditate on the Word-the Lord gave us an incredible set of instructions, it is up to us to read and apply them
Exercise-our bodies waste away if we don't use our muscles. We release wonderful endorphins when we work our muscles. We have a sense of accomplishment when we move.
Eat Well- this means different things to different people. You get direct result based on the "fuel" you put in your body. Step your diet up one step...if you are eating out, make better choices, if you are eating canned and processed foods, eat frozen. If you are eating fresh, step up to organic. You probably will not stick with a plan that changes everything at one time...take baby steps and stick with it.
Get enough sleep- your body heals as it sleeps. Your body needs 6-8 hours of quality sleep every night. If you are not getting that at night, take naps. You handle issues better if you are well rested. Life goes smoother.
Be Thankful-Life will throw you curve balls...be thankful, look for the growth, the benefits and the good that will come out of it.
