Twins: Balance & Boundaries

Some have referred to balance as the ultimate goal. That may be pretty close. But balance has a twin: boundaries. Siamese twins. In her book A Life in Balance Dr. Kathleen A. Hall wrote: “We have overstretched our personal boundaries and forgotten that true happiness comes from living an authentic life fueled with a sense of purpose and balance.” Evaluate your mental, emotional, physical, sexual, social, financial, educational, spiritual, and romantic boundaries, to name just a few. Are they too tight, too loose, nonexistent, or just right for you and a high-level healthiness lifestyle? Developing and implementing bona fide boundaries can help you keep your life in bona fide balance. Your boundaries are as individual as your brain and your thumbprint, and your daily choices impact everything. Even not making a decision is a decision. This is especially true when it comes to understanding how to age-proof your brain. You can only do what you know. Evaluate what needs to be tweaked and begin making desirable lifestyle changes a little at a time. That way your improvements will be more likely to last!
