It's that day of the week where we encourage you to take some time to journal so grab your laptop or notebook and start a fresh page.
This week we're thinking about balance: On the mat we're looking at physical balance and the balance between effort and ease. In our journaling, we'll be looking at balance in the way we spend our days.
If we can find more balance in life we feel more fulfilled, content and happier. These inner feelings affect our interactions both with ourselves and with others, helping us to lead lives in a more peaceful way and practice the yogic principle of ahimsa (non-harm).
Do you feel like your life is currently in balance (work - play -activity - rest - time with family & friends - time for self)?
If you do not feel like life is in balance, what is most unbalanced? What do you spend the most time & energy on, and what gets neglected the most?
(If you feel like you have a healthy balance of rest/work/time with family/time for reflection, consider if there are any other areas of your life where finding balance could be beneficial.)
What would balance look like to you at the moment? Describe how finding balance in work/life/play/rest etc would look and feel.
What small steps can you take to begin to bring more balance into your life?
