Finding Balance

Balance: A state of equilibrium.
The ongoing process of maintaining beneficial practices and eliminating harmful ones.

Balancing the body can minimize physical and emotional challenges. Easing a current pain and preventing a future one can be the same process.

ALL of these play a role in maintaining balance.

Hydration: we are, conservatively, 60% water and must continually replace the water we release
Nutrition: fuel for brain and body function
Sleep: where the body does it’s healing and repair work
Exercise: builds stamina, increases circulation and releases stress
Relaxation: allows the nervous system to relax and recharge helping prevent overload/overwhelm
Recreation: brings joy, engages our passion for life and chemically fueling us with endorphins
