Ways to Balance Your Life
BACK TO THE BASICS
by Bret Nicholaus and Paul Lowrie
How balanced is your life? Here are seven suggestions designed to bring a little more balance into your life.
Seek out and thank a war veteran. Rather than on Veteran’s or Memorial
Day, do it on an average day so it comes as a pleasant surprise.
For one full day, try to smile more than usual. Make it bigger and better
than ever before. Since smiles are often contagious, you probably won’t
be the only one showing those pearly whites.
Enjoy a candlelight dinner in your home with someone special
Call someone you haven’t talked to in at least five years and rekindle
an old friendship. If you’re asking yourself why they never call you
anymore, chances are they’re wondering why you never call them!
Buy a roll of film and take pictures of things you would normally never
think of photographing. After the pictures are developed, choose the most
unusual one and have it framed.
Go an entire day without saying one negative comment about anything or
anyone! To really test your resolve, pick a day when you’re going to be
talking to a lot of people — at a party, for example.
Allow yourself to cry about something you’ve been wanting to cry about
for a long time.
