6 WAYS TO GET BACK INTO BALANCE

Do you know the feeling of feeling out of balance? I know for sure. It usually happens when I have too much going on and when I haven’t been sticking to the usual things that makes my life go smooth. So here is a list of 6 things that might help to bring you back into balance again 🌿🙏

Drink Water

This is such a simple, yet so important tip. Water and staying hydrated is absolutely essential for our bodies to function properly, and for your skin to feel hydrated as well! So ask yourself; have you been drinking enough water recently? Otherwise, try to have focus on drinking more water

Daily Smoothies with Good Quality Oils

I love to make either a good green smoothie or a delicious berry smoothie! It’s such an easy way to get extra vitamins and antioxidants, which is so good for your body and your skin! + add some good quality oil to your smoothie, this is so good for dry skin!

Move Your Body

Again, a simple, yet so important thing for our health and well-being – moving your body. When you don’t move, things get stagnant in your body, so move and breathe and make things flow!

Relax & Recharge

When did you last stop to pause, rest, relax and recharge? If you’re like me, you’re very good at finishing one thing and then going straight to the next! I constantly have to remind myself to take time to just be, rest and relax. Because it’s vital for our well-being, to remember to rest and just be and not always do. Take a nap, watch a good movie, go for a lovely walk in nature or read a good book!

Eat Whole Foods

Finding ways to get back into balance, can also be because you’ve gotten out of balance in terms of what you eat – perhaps you’ve been eating out too much recently? Going to many birthdays and eaten a lot of delicious, but not as healthy, whole foods? Perhaps it’s time to get back to more whole foods – vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds.

Clean up, Tidy & Organise your Place

One of the things that can make me feel out of balance, is if I’ve been letting things pile up in my apartment and it has gotten too messy. A messy apartment for me also equals a more “messy mind”, which makes me feel incredibly uninspired and out of balance. Cleaning up, tidying and organising my place can also give me renewed energy and inspiration!

What are your favourite ways to get back into balance again? 🙏

BALANCING FEMININE AND MASCULINE ENERGY

If you want to live a balanced life, it’s so important to balance your feminine and your masculine energy. Or, what is also known as “yin and yang” 🙏✨

Everything in life is about balance.

We need both. We need both the light and the dark. We need the individual and the collective. We need the warm and the cold.

To find balance in life, we should look at balancing the Yin (feminine) and Yang (masculine)energies in our life.

It’s good to dream and envision how we would like our life to be like (yin), but we also need to take action towards achieving those dreams (yang).

It’s good to go out and socialise with others (yang), but we also need time to be still and tune in to ourselves (yin).

It’s good to move your body and be active (yang), but you also need to take time to rest, relax and let your body recover (yin).

It’s good to work, especially on projects you are excited about (yang), but you also need time to just relax & recharge (yin).

It’s good to give generously (yang), but you should also allow yourself to receive as well (yin).

Remember, life is all about finding the balance, and it will never be perfect – and it shouldn’t be the goal to strive for “the perfect balance”. But learn to use the Yin and Yang energies in your life – if you have been working hard, remember to take some time off to relax. If you’ve been too inactive for a longer period of time, take time to come up and move your body. Always remember that we need both feminine and masculine energy in our life to find balance 🙏✨

BALANCING MASCULINE AND FEMININE ENERGY

Everything in life is about balance. Which is why balancing masculine and feminine energy is vital for your health and well-being ✨

We might be classified as ‘female’ or ‘male’ based on our gender, but all individuals have both masculine and feminine energies inside of them, and these needs to be balanced if we want to live a life in harmony and health.

If we are too much in our masculine (yang) energy, we’ll eventually burn out – as this is very much “go go go” energy, with focus on taking action and getting results.

Whereas if we are too much in our feminine (yin) energy, we’ll never get anything done as this is very much about resting, relaxing and nurturing.

Both energies are important in our lives, but we need them both. It’s all about balance. We need both the light and the dark. We need the individual and the collective. We need the warm and the cold.

Just think about this:

It’s all wonderful to dream and envision how we would like our life to be like (yin), but we also need to step up and take action towards achieving those dreams (yang).

It’s good to go out and socialize with others (yang), but we also need time to be still and tune in with ourselves (yin).

It’s good to move your body and be active (yang), but you also need to take time to rest, relax and let your body recover (yin).

Life is all about finding balance – and it will never be 100% perfect – and it shouldn’t be a goal to strive for the perfect balance. But you can learn to use the Yin and Yang energies in your life. If you have been working hard, then remember to take some time off to relax. If you have been too inactive for a longer period of time, take time to come up and move your body.

Always remember that we need both in our life to find balance ✨
