1. Let go of perfectionism
As a recovering perfectionist, let me share with you that it’s overrated!
It can handicap you from achieving your goals, it makes you vulnerable to stress and can often lead to indecisiveness and procrastination.
Don’t get me wrong, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with setting high standards, but it’s more than that for the perfectionist – they strive for the impossible: PERFECTION – which is unachievable!
I wouldn’t keep mentioning it if it wasn’t important!
Exercise gets your body physically moving!
Okay, let me explain the importance of it using basic physics.
Omg, 😲 I can feel the eyes rolling 🙄 and the finger getting ready to swipe to move on!
Just follow me for a second…read on! 🙃
Do you agree that all molecules are in constant motion? (You’re supposed to say yes.)
Do you also agree that molecules make up the cells of the body (atoms)? (Again, you should agree agree here.)
If so, it’s correct to say that the body is made of cells – right? (Work with me…)
Therefore, since molecules are in constant motion and our cells are made up molecules – do you “see” how we are in constant motion??
We were meant to move.
That wasn’t too bad was it?
Anyway, the explanation is way more technical than that but I want you to understand that exercise plays an important role in your life – particularly if you’re trying to achieve balance.
Meditation calms the mind, balances emotions and gives you perspective.
In my FB LIVE broadcast earlier this morning, I explained in detail how thoughts play an important role in life and why we should spend time in meditation to quiet our mind which will help you achieve balance.
If you missed it, I invite To to check it out. You can watch the replays on my YouTube channel (YouTube.com/piamcadams)
Shameless plug…I know but it’s good information there!
So these are three tips to help you achieve balance but the list is endless.
Now, I’d like to hear from you.
What do you do to stay balanced?
