Finding Balance and Health in an Unbalanced World
by Kimberly Rose Johnson
It is easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life. If you are anything like I am, you judge how good your day went by how much you accomplished. I still do this, but I try to set realistic goals that won’t have a negative impact on my health. I discovered the hard way that too much work isn’t healthy.
In 2018, I made it a priority to find balance in my life both professionally and personally. Basically, I worked too much and neglected good health practices such as eating right and exercising. I realized that I needed to make changes and guess what? They worked. I am now far more relaxed, I’ve lost a good deal of weight, and I feel better all around.
I focused on eating whole foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables. I cut out processed foods as much as possible, and I reduced my sugar and caffeine intake. I made it a priority to exercise daily, and during this time I would either listen to a podcast, read for pleasure, or watch some kind of home improvement show. Taking the time to do this at noon gave me the boost I needed to get through the remainder of my workday.
If balance is something you struggle with, I encourage you to set realistic goals that will help you achieve balance. Don’t strive for perfection, simply do the best you can and let that be good enough.
