Beginners Guide to Finding Balance

Have you been feeling overwhelmed lately? With so much going on in the world, it’s easy to get bogged down. Whether it’s love, money or the war of politics, they can all leave you feeling a bit unbalanced.

There are a lot of things you can do to clear your head and catch your second wind. Here are a few things I do when life leaves me feeling frazzled:

  1. I pray. When the going gets tough, I know it’s time to pray. When things are going well, I know it’s still time to pray. Prayer has been a tool I’ve utilized throughout my life. Growing up around a family that prays, the power of prayer became one of many building blocks my foundation of faith in God was and is still built on.
  2. I write. Writing is one of the ways I release the matters of my heart. Whether it be through journaling or writing poetry, blogs or books, I am able to find the release I need in order to move on. If you don’t have anyone to talk it out with, paper and pen is your friend. IMG_1512
  3. I meditate. I’m not an expert at meditating. To be honest, I’ve only completed two sessions using an app called Headspace. In those 10-minute sessions, I’ve noticed that it’s so much easier to fall asleep because my head seems to be much clearer. So, Headspace actually helps you to free up head space. Lol!
  4. I find water.  Whenever I get the chance, I love to visit the beach. If the beach isn’t on my itinerary, I enjoy a healing detox bath. I add 1 lb of Epsom salt and 1 box of baking soda to my bath water. Then, I soak for 20 minutes. Note: Because I have dysautonomia, I’m not allowed to use extremely hot water.
  5. I surround myself with positive energy. Positive energy cancels out negative energy. Right? I have the most awesome circle of friends! I truly believe God has placed them in my life to help me be a more positive person. If you have someone in your life that makes you want to be a better person, appreciate them!
