BALANCE PLAY AND WORK – You have an admirable drive to bring meaning to your own life and those of the people around you. You’re exceptionally responsible in caring for others, and you do a good job of nurturing yourself as well.
Today we’d like to focus on the question of balance. Instead of looking upon this topic as one more addition to your “to-do” list, think of it as an equation for squeezing more joy, productivity and energy out of each moment.
When your day is solely devoted to work, your expenditure of energy is unbalanced, which is what leaves you drained and hungry for food or drinks to boost your spirits. Electrical currents work in a loop of output and input – giving and receiving – and your own body operates in essentially the same way.
Playfulness completes your physical circuits, reenergizing you so that you have the fuel to give and create. When you enjoy yourself, your energy is naturally elevated, which is why play is just as productive and essential as work. Together, the two activities are the negative and positive poles that keep powerful currents moving. Spend time today playing as well as working, and enjoy the rewards that come from this balance.
I make time to play every day, for this is just as important as working. I now choose to have a balanced life and allow myself to receive and give equally.
