After a rock has been thrown into a pool of water the waves are immediately big to compensate for the object breaking the stillness of the surface.
Slowly the waves become smaller from the impact and soon settle back to its new normal. The water will alway find its balance.
Work & Life relationship, Nutrition & Exercise, Relationships & Socialization may be a little wavy right now but you can start to control what you can to find your new balance.
How do you find that balance?
Start with what you know.
You know what you have to do.
You know how much time you have.
You know your priorities.
You know you need proper fuel.
You know you need to move.
You know keeping proper communication is important.
Write down all that you know in a list.
Find consistency and stick to that schedule as best as you can.
Even if that means not fully finishing a task – just come back to it later.
Take a shower and change out of the clothes you slept in.
Remember to eat and drink plenty of water. Keeping properly fueled and hydrated will help you deal with everything thing else, help keep you going and on task.
Take a few minutes to at least stretch each day, go for a walk, get a workout in. Or at least stand up from your desk once an hour.

You and your partner, spouse, children, family, co-workers, friends, and neighbors are all on the same team. Help your team to all find balance together.

- Get fresh air. Stand in front of an open window for a few moments or minutes with your eyes closed, concentrating only on the air filling your lunges and reviving your cells.
- Eat right. Make sure you get plenty of nutrients throughout the day and eat sugars only as a treat.
- Make a schedule and stick to it as best you can.
- Move your body. Make sure to keep moving throughout the day. Walk around your house for a few minutes. Add some push ups, sit ups, squats, and lunges. Do this multiple times a day, and add it to your schedule.
It may be hard to find a new balance today, but keep working at it. Stay resilient, focus on what you can control and what is actually important in each moment.
