Making Healthy Choices & Balancing Life Realistically

by Elizabeth

Having the power of choice is freedom. Using that freedom empowers you. Choosing how to maneuver from here for any moment of your day brings balance, and you choose what is healthy for you. That is all part of the life balance. Healthy means something different to everyone; everyone will make choices at various levels at any time. And just like hunger drives you to choose to eat, the care of putting some effort into planning and preparing what your meals will be and at what time you’ll take these meals will be pivotal to solving the realistic balance of healthy choices in this aspect. From exercise to mental health, many facets exist to making healthy choices in daily tasks. The balance you bring to the table, literally and figuratively, will create your own kind of healthy in your daily tasks, appointments, relationships (including the one with yourself), and plans.

There was a time when I knew a personal development coach who wrote an article stating that work-life balance is bullshit. My take on the subject is that it depends on how you view it. If balance to you is very rigidly symmetrical, then it is impossible to have that balance in life. However! If you think of work-life balance as a ball on the nose of a sea lion, then you’ll know that balance requires your keen eye, flexibility, and the grounding of your usual foundational matters. The key here is flexibility! You can’t do it all and especially not all at once. The sea lion can’t juggle and balance the ball simultaneously, nor can it eat while doing it. Understanding that there is never one moment where absolutely everything in your life is in perfect balance or that it is possible for anyone else, you begin to forgive yourself when expectations aren’t met. You know that you have optimally succeeded in realistically balancing when you’ve tried your best and included self-care in your day. I highly recommend reading “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz. There is a chapter about always doing your best (amongst so much valuable advice that will also create stronger mental health).

With every waking moment evolving into the next moment, you can only expect to evolve within your own strength. To make healthier choices, stay flexible and forgiving, balanced life realistically by planning ahead and preparing, give yourself credit for your healthy choices and always be aware of your own reality.
