Hey guys, as promised I’m posting today.
Now, I didn’t really have a topic planned (when do I ever), but I wanted to discuss something called equilibrium.
Now, when I say equilibrium, I’m not just talking about neurologically. I’m referring to your life as a human being.
The saying goes “all things in moderation” and that saying is true as too much of anything effects you in a negative way. Too much working burns you out and too much relaxing makes you a lazy bastard that doesn’t want to do anything with their life.
Now, equilibrium looks different for everyone but everyone needs to be able to achieve it. So, I’m going to offer some principles for achieving this equilibrium (well, pillars rather than principles).
- Knowing yourself– when you know yourself well enough, you know what you like and dislike. You know what you want to spend the majority of your time doing and what you don’t want to be doing. when this is the case, you can organize your life in such a way that anything you don’t want to do (or don’t want to spend all day doing) can be put on the back burner or completely eliminated.
- Relaxing– This is for keeping your environment stress free as being stress free creates and cultivates a sense of equanimity (mental calmness). When your environment is stress free or relatively low in terms of stressful circumstances, you can prevent from burning out and being overwhelmed.
- Having an active hobby– working out, walking, running, hiking. At least one active hobby to get the juices flowing and make you feel great during the day.
- Reflecting on your existence– this is so you don’t get comfortable and complacent and become a lazy bastard. Visualize what success looks like for you and determine what you are willing to do to achieve it.
- Be yourself– stop socializing with worthless people and people you know aren’t right for you. You are a specific type of person and require specific types of people for your life to have meaning. Be authentically yourself and you will come across these people.
There you go, a couple ways to achieve equilibrium. Hope this helps!
