How To Maintain A Balanced Lifestyle

By Tanvi Rastogi @tanviidotcom

We come into this world head first and go out feet first; in between, it is all a matter of balance. Paul Boese

If you know me, or have been reading this blog for a while, you know 'balance' has been a contact aspiration of mine. "Excess of anything is unnatural" has been my motto for the past five years or so. Not to say, that I have achieved that balance, but at least I am aware and constantly striving to achieve it. Although I am active and have been working out consistently for over a decade, I have come to realize than a balanced lifestyle is more than just working out. It involves being healthy from head to toe, quite literally.


1. Take care of yourself. Like REALLY!
Make time everyday for things that bring you joy. Take up activities that you would like to do just for the joy of it, be it working out, reading or pampering yourself. Allow yourself to unwind after a hectic day by reading, meditating or taking a nice hot bath. I ensure at least thirty minutes of reading time before hitting the bed.

I started taking supplements for Hair-Nail-Skin' from my early twenties. I have always been a believer of prevention is better than he cure. Also being a vegetarian, I often rely on 2. Nourish from within
The quality of health is mostly from within. When you eat a balanced meal and ensure that you are taking supplements for what might be lacking in your meals, it is only then that you truly support your over all well being. Nature Made® Vitamins to make every day just a little healthier.
3. Get moving
I cannot emphasize enough on the benefits of working out. It is not JUST about the weight looks and physical appearance. It is about strength, agility and endurance. The good endorphins, glowing skin, better mental healthy are only a few of the side effects of a good strenuous workout.

4. Maintain a positive mental attitude

Start your day with meditation if possible. I begin by day with the intention of making the most of it. It often does not go as planned, but I am able to better deal with it, since my perspective is positive. Part of living a well-balanced life is learning how to deal with adversity, unforeseen events and uncertainty.

Let's be honest. It is all well and good, but at the end of the day you do need to get the work done. Instead of getting overwhelmed by the list, set goals. Make a plan and stick to it. Prioritize on the basis of what is important to you. In the end be happy with all you are able to achieve. #SmallVictories Do not compare. Do not complain. Tomorrow you will get up and repeat it all over again!
