Like a wheel, if there is an area in our life that is not balanced, everything is off.
I am realistic that not every area may be a 10 but I also feel that to have a balanced life we need to have each area as balanced as possible.
Take some time to review the areas of your life. Are you satisfied in your relationship? Do financial worries continue to cause you stress? Is your professional path taking you in the direction that you would like to go? Have you been ignoring physical issues and pains in your body?
This exercise requires that you take some quiet time to reevaluate the components of your life. It’s a check in with yourself to evaluate what you may need to focus upon. Many years ago I brought a copy of this wheel home and placed it in my journal to complete. It continued to sit there folded up for several weeks and I found myself even journaling about the fact that I was not completing my balance wheel.
I knew that my life wasn’t balanced and writing it down meant facing it. I wanted to stay in denial but my denial wasn’t comfortable.
I am in the process of doing a new balance wheel for myself. As often happens, events in our life cause us to become off balance. However, the importance is knowing we can rebalance ourselves.
