When we lose our balance in life, finding our center again isn’t easy. This week, let’s finding your center after losing your balance!
When you hear the word balance, you probably think physical balance. Life is so much more than that. Different types of balance are essential for a more holistic, mindful life. Let’s talk about the top 3.
Top 3 Types of Balance (besides physical)
- Spiritual Balance-The sense that your spirit is in harmony with other parts of your life. For some people, this means going to a church, mosque, or synagogue each week. For others, it may mean a daily meditation practice. Again, it’s different for everyone. Finding what works for you isn’t just essential, it’s something I believe we all strive for.
- Emotional Balance-Like spiritual balance, this kind of balance is essential. If our emotions are unbalanced, it can bleed into other parts of our lives. It can even effect our physical wellbeing.
- Professional Balance-This one might surprise you. I mention this because we all have some kind of job. It’s important that we feel a good balance between work and life. We’ve all heard the phrase “work/life balance” and there’s something to that idea.
So out of these three, which one do you think is the most important for you? For me, it’s a combination of all three. That’s because, for many of us, these all intersect. This week, take time to think about that question, for yourself. Write it down in a journal and see what comes up for you.

Three Ways to Find Your Center After Losing Your Balance
- Meditation-A simple meditation practice can be a great place to start. It can be done for free, using many different apps. I recommend the Calm app. See my review here.
- Journaling-This is another great way to get back to center. Writing down your thoughts, feelings, and emotions can open up more ways to practice our next way.
- Self-Care-This is something we all need to find time to practice. Check out my Self-Care is Healthcare article here!
To wrap it up for this week, I want to encourage you all to take time this week to find your center, if you feel like you’ve lost it. Maybe take one of the examples in this article and run with it! I know I have to get back to a few of these things. Letting life throw you off is natural but it’s how we get back on track that matters most.
I want to leave you with another article from the Chopra Center. It’s a great one about balance. Until next week, be well and namaste!
