Finding Balance in Life

May I strive for balance

Balance is my key word for 2020. This year, and this decade, I really want to work on living a balanced life: balancing my career with my personal life, balancing being non stop with taking time to rest, balancing being surrounded by others with finding peace in solitude… the list for balance is endless.

I tried to think about areas in my life where I currently find balance. I realized I do a really good job with a balanced diet. For the most part I eat fairly healthy. But I allow myself to indulge now and then in nachos, an entire cheese plate or a serving of pasta that is meant for a family of four. And you know what? I don’t feel bad about it.

So maybe I need to treat the year more like what I feed my body. Some days you eat a salad and hit the gym and some days you order a pizza and Netflix and chill. It’s really all about finding balance in life.

Life is about balance.
Be kind, but don’t let people abuse you.
Trust, but don’t be deceived.
Be content, but never stop improving yourself.
—Zig Ziglar

I hope you enjoyed coming along with me on my journey to setting my 2020 intentions. And I hope it was helpful for you as well! Thank you for all your support over the past decade and I can’t wait to celebrate this new chapter with you! And congrats to all the winners of the #ssNewYearNewYou giveaways! I loved getting to treat my #ssInstaFam while giving back to charity (because it’s all about balance, right?!). If you’re curious to learn more about the charities, I put them all on my 2020 Giveaways Highlights Reel over on Instagram, along with behind the scenes of all the fashion shoots. Happy 2020 my loves!

    Balance is what I aspire to in all spheres of my life. But the most important thing for me is to balance my diet – now I eat too many carbs (and too many sugars).
    I think that balance is the key word for life, not only for 2020. Thank you for your inspiration!

    There are some pretty simple guidelines that will help you keep your heart healthy. First of all, pay attention to your lifestyle, the doctor will be able to tell you more. A person needs 150 minutes of physical activity per week, preferably aerobic (swimming, brisk walking, training on simulators).

    Of course this is important to balance your life. Maybe the willing to improve my balance and in order not to be torn apart between study and my personal life i have chosen to study less. Well i mean that i have started to use nursing case study services. At least this is how i can economize my time and to do something else, something important. Something which relates to other study things as well as something which touches my personal life

    I need a really good job to balance my life. I tried for a long time to find a job in a good company, because I consider myself an excellent specialist. I was recommended a site with ReactJS jobs with relocation assistance. To be honest, I did not consider moving to another country, but given the relocation support from the company, this option no longer seems impossible to me.
