How to define what balance looks like for you and the session of life you are in:
The best way to define what balance looks like for you, is to start to describe what it feels like when things are out of balance. Then think if things were the opposite. Now you have your definition of life balance and can start to apply the three princples to them.
The 3 principles of balance:
- Faith first- Above everything. Just like Matthew 6:33 says, seek first the kingdom of God and all these things will be given to you. We need to move away from keeping faith in a box and as just part of our life. If you want balance, it needs to be the filter in which the rest of your life works from.
- Community-Serve others and allow them to serve you. It might be a prayer, or an act of kindess or just a listening ear. When you open yourself up to others, your problems seem smaller and your burdens are lessend.
- Systems- Often we are overwhelmed and exhausted because we lack systems in our life and we have decision fatigue. The more you can opperate in auto-pilot with healthy habits that contribute to your goals, the more you will have energy to do the things that matter. This is where Life Balance Membership really shines. We teach you the systems to keep things moving forward in each area of your life.
