48: Is Balance a Myth? How to Live a More Mindful and Balanced Life

Is Balance a Myth? How to Live a More Mindful and Balanced Life

Each and every one of us seems to be striving for more balance. But what does the term “balance” really mean? Is it something we can actually achieve?

I have my own thoughts about what work-life balance means and for the most part, I don’t subscribe to it. It ebbs and flows. It’s ever-changing. The goal should be getting to a place where you can tap into where you fall on the spectrum.

Being mindful and finding ways to rest is not beyond reach! There are a few strategies and exercises you can do every day to help you achieve a more balanced life.

You have to get clear on your core values and what lights you up and brings you joy. This is what will help you balance with more intention and ease.
