What would a balanced life feel like?

Let talk about Emotional Balance.
Life is so busy, and we have so many tasks each day with work, Emails marked as urgent, deadlines on bills, kids, and all the needs that come with relationships with partners.
You may even have friends in crisis relying on you for support. Often when friends or family share their needs in a crisis, we are Johnny on the spot to rescue them. Meanwhile, our own emotions are screaming, “WHAT ABOUT ME? STOP TAKE CARE OF ME! YOU FORGOT SOMETHING!! Often we are in such a rush in our mind we forget to take a breath and check-in with ourselves, and before we know it, we are feeling overwhelmed, sad may be angry, or even just outright exhausted and riddled with anxiety.
I will be the first to admit I have spent a great deal of my life taking care of others and their emotional and physical needs before my own. I owned and operated a daycare for 22 years. Those kids and their parents were always in a crisis of one sort or another, and I was happy to run to the rescue placing my own emotional balance at great risk. Then again, when it was for my loved ones. I regularly found myself completely exhausted, riddled with anxiety.
Through the coaching academy, I attended I learned skills to take care of myself even when outside influences are very intense. How can you help others if you are not in some emotional balance? If you are not taking care of #1…That is you.
3 Tips to help you stay balanced
I will give you 3 tips to use throughout each day to help keep you emotionally balanced.
First, let us try a breathing exercise. Your breath can tell a lot about your stress level. Check-in and see if you are holding your breath. Or are you breathing erratically, Maybe even sighing often. If you find any of these things, take a couple of minutes and do a simple breathing exercise.
It looks like Consciously take 10 deep breaths, counting backward with each inhalation and exhalation. Label each breath to keep your mind focused on a single point of attention and Say to yourself, “Ten in, 10 out. Nine in, nine out.” If possible, lie down and close your eyes, or find a quiet space. If no quiet space exists for you, then find a quiet space inside your mind. This will help center you emotionally.
Another great tool is to stop and pause at regular integrals throughout the day while consciously finding something that you are profoundly grateful for. This must be genuine for the best results. In every stressful situation, search for one thing that you can honestly be grateful for.
Pleasant thoughts through your five senses’ organs orient your field of awareness toward the present moment, through what you see, what you touch, what you smell and taste. Direct your awareness to what you like about your current experience. Find gratitude in the experience.
Another great tool is going out and getting fresh air and see the sunlight as much as possible. Notice and appreciate your surroundings. These simple actions are great tools to help with emotional balance. Being in nature is very grounding. You may even take a minute and remove your shoes and place your bare feet onto mother earth. This will allow her calm energies to come up through your feet. These are great tips to share with those loved ones you are helping.
The final tip, as well as my personal favorite, is meditation. There are many forms of meditation. Why meditate? Let us explore the benefits of meditation and look at some practical ways it will help spiritual development and enhance your quality of life.
“Your mind is at work all day, every day. Every decision you make, every challenge that you face, every moment you go through in life, your mind is your constant companion, and it can be your best friend or your worst enemy.” Christopher Lloyd Clarke
When you practice meditation, your heart rate and you’re breathing gradually slow down. Your blood pressure normalizes, and the function of your immune system improves. Meditation also causes your adrenal glands to produce less cortisol, one of the main hormones responsible for aging. As you meditate, your mind becomes clearer and clearer. You feel less burdened by mental chatter, and troubling emotions gradually melt away. Feelings of stress and anxiety are greatly reduced during meditation.
