6 Ways To Bring Balance, Harmony And Happiness Into Your Life Fast

"How can I bring some balance into my life?"

"I want to be a Jedi Master. How do I do it?"

"I'm so stressed, tired and burned out. I need a change fast!"

"What do I need to do to be happier and more balanced every day?"

Cultivating balance and harmony into your life can bring you true happiness. It may be difficult at times to keep an on-the-go hectic life in order, but when you do, it makes an incredible difference.

Here's the trick: spread your focus fairly equally among the different areas of your life (work, family, relationships, spirituality and recreational time).

A good analogy is beautiful music performed by a skilled orchestra. Every instrument performs in perfect harmony with the others. Sometimes one instrument will come forward into the spotlight, while the other instruments pause or continue playing quietly, fulfilling their part of the total beauty.

Follow these six techniques to bring the beauty of balance and harmony to your life:

Avoid total focus on only one issue.

If you spend all of your energy on one aspect of your life, the others fall by the wayside. If you must spend a great deal of time on one area temporarily, make an extra effort to include other important things as much as possible.

  • For example, if you must stay late at work, call home to talk with your spouse on one of your breaks. After work, use your free time wisely to concentrate on other areas of your life.

What issue do you find yourself focusing the most on?

 

Reflect on your goals and dreams.

Take time to consider your goals and dreams. Come up with a plan to follow through and start taking action toward them. Even if you feel that you aren't in the position to take great action, some action is better than nothing.

What are your goals and dreams? What's your plan?

 

Reduce your stress.

Stress arises in your life as a sign that things aren't in balance. It's a natural indicator that tells you it's time to take action. If you ignore it, the situation only gets worse.

  • When you determine the root cause of the stress and reduce it as much as possible, you'll find that things naturally tend to move back towards harmony.

What's causing you stress?

 

Get the proper rest you need.

An important part of finding balance and harmony is getting enough sleep. If you feel the need to continually squeeze in one more thing and deprive yourself of sleep because of it, set a bedtime and follow it religiously.

Are you getting enough sleep? If not, what can you do to fix this?

 

Explore spirituality.

Another way to find balance and harmony is to explore your spiritual side. Many religions and non-religious spiritual groups specifically address the issue of finding balance in your life.

  • Focus can begin to creep when projects drag on for an extended period of time. Return to your mission statement frequently to keep your focus fresh.

How spiritual are you? What would help you to be more spiritual?

 

Try Yoga or Tai-Chi.

Both go beyond simple stretches in order to keep fit. These are ancient arts that address your mind, body and spirit. It's a great way to bring your whole day into balance, and you'll no doubt leave your session refreshed and relaxed. Yoga or tai-chi can help!

Have you given yoga or tai-chi a chance?

 

When your life is in harmony, everything appears easier.

You're less stressed, more energized, and you have the time to enjoy the things that are most important to you.

Take action to bring this balance into your life and enjoy all it has to offer you.

Start now.
