Now, I’m not referring to your ability to hold the Namaste Tree pose, or the Virabhadrasana III (pronounced veer-uhb-huh-DRAAH-suh-nuh) position, or any other yoga moves really. I am speaking of your skill at juggling life’s everyday demands. Although, if you take a closer look, you might notice that the two shares similar essential elements; Focus, keep grounded, and breathe.
Often times, we focus too much on one thing and not pay enough attention to other important matters, and we find ourselves off balance. It is important to identify and recognize your priorities and concentrate accordingly. Finding out what your focal point is will greatly higher your chance at achieving that goal. For me, it’s being at the gym; A good workout almost always gets me back on track.
With any balancing positions, keeping your foot (feet) grounded and maintaining a firm stand is key. In life, having a good support system, hope and a strong belief often does the trick. A steady balance requires a lot of practice. So, if you do wobble, simply re-establish your focusing direction. Continue and you will soon discover that your skill and confidence will slowly increase.
A perfect balance can be achieved with patience, time, strength, discipline, and persistence. But most importantly, we must first learn to breathe. Aside from the obvious fact that we cannot live without breathing, it also helps to revitalize and connect the mind to body.
I think I’ve successfully achieve the physics of balance, but I constantly find myself struggling with life’s balance. If you are also unable to maintain that state of equilibrium, have no fear because we’re all in this rickety boat together, called humanity. We may be flawed but we’re also fixable, so find your balance.
