My method is threefold: BALANCE – CONNECT – ACT
I keep using the word Balance, because this is the key! Balance harmoniously allows all elements in nature to coexist and, in the same way, a balanced life readjusts all the forces in our body and soul allowing us to live happily. More precisely, the main sectors of our life we should focus on improving are:
✔️Personal Health and Selfcare
Routinely, our career and family drain us of time and energy, leaving but crumbs for all other sides of us. But how can we be creative, productive and in the long run happy, if we don’t dedicate equal time and energy to other parts of ourselves? Time and energy for our social life, our long-lasting education, for exercising our body and nourishing our spirit; Balance in finance, responsibilities, needs. And of course proportionately! That is, without weighing the scales on one side or the other. Only if all areas are in Balance can we be led to a healthier, happier, more creative life. Balance allows us to enjoy things in life. Vital things. Truly happy moments, peace of mind, with creativity and imagination. Imagine a life without imagination… that would never work. We need magic in our lives, as much as we need food and water. Always bear that in mind.
SO, HOW CAN I ACHIEVE THE MUCH-DESIRED BALANCE IN MY LIFE?
Of course through the self-awareness process. And Connection with your true self. The inner and genuine version of yourself. Through the process of self-awareness, you learn to love and embrace yourself exactly as you are, keeping it intact! You learn your physical and mental bio-individuality. Knowing our strengths and de-escalating our weaknesses is a key element along the way. Following true self awareness, I start communicating first with myself and then with those around me, may they be beloved ones or just acquaintances. I build my relationships with other people. After all, man is a social being only when in close connection with other people. Loneliness is not a human characteristic even if solitude may often be a necessity for many of us!
ACT & Re- ACT
Time to take some ACTION!
So, once we get to know ourselves, in full love and acceptance, we need to take a step further. Go to plan B. We must Act. WE must take some Action involving moves, changes, thoughts, and reorientations. We should change things we don’t like. We should better add in people, foods, hobbies, activities that make us feel happy and fulfilled. In turn, avoid toxic people, relationships, situations or environments. We should closely Connect with and listen to our body, our inner self, our needs (not others’) and take a step further towards our aspirations. Then, set goals. Clear, realistic goals, not utopian ones that will only stress and distract you from your target objective and the big picture. Hence, we need to take baby steps, no need for leaps! As long as they are in the right direction. There is no need for leaps! Baby steps will serve equally well!. And clearly have a time frame to achieve and accomplish them. Those that you have no intention of implementing there is no reason to set them. There should be a solid Action plan and a realistic time frame. Time management is the key to true Balance. Everybody and everything may be distracting. You must stick to the plan and commit to yourself. Eyes on your goals! Commit to yourself about what you are going to make! Commit to yourself about taking ACTION! We are going to make it!
