  • The interior/exterior balance wellness tip #2: Go with what you are good at

    Work/life balance was a concept developed in an era in which work and life really could be balanced because they could actually be separated. In the past, it was much harder for work to follow you home or home life to follow you to work. But then technology came along and blurred the boundaries. Now, with our phones, tablets, laptops and other devices, many of us carry our whole life around with us 24/7. The result of being constantly reachable in this way from all fronts is a heightened sense of agitation and stimulation stemming from life never turning off, which leads to feeling overloaded and overwhelmed. But while technology has made balancing work and life in the old sense outmoded, that is not to say that we shouldn’t be striving for balance. It’s just not between work and life, per se. Rather, what needs to be balanced in this day and age, according to sociology thinkers of today, is our interior/exterior world – a shift in concept rooted in the growing understanding that our major tools for balancing all that comes at us from the outside relate to the tinkering we need to do on the inside in order to feel calm, balanced and together. The next several monthly wellness tips will be a progression of specific actions we can take to help create the inner environment and inner reserve that better enables us to meet what is coming at us from the outside with greater sense of equanimity and ease.
