Sometimes life gets away from you. Situations happen where all your focus is gathered on certain area in your life. Unfortunately, if the focus stays too long, the other areas in your life can suffer. It’s all one big holistic Venn diagram.
The varied areas of our life are all linked in some way. What affects our physical body can affect our mental body much like a person that is in chronic pain, developing anxiety or depression, or an individual with emotional trauma, feeling sick to their stomach. The extended attention to one variable affects our relationships, personal life and job, as well.

So how do we keep the scales of self-care balanced?
Over the last few months I have been working hard to edit, design and publish four books that will be coming out this fall. It has been many years in the process and the final moments of completion are near but require a lot of my attention and commitment. I have a couple of guest-speaking and teaching events soon on Mindfulness for Students and Corporate Mindfulness. My wellness centre has been on summer laze but this week we restart all our regular classes requiring much organization. My organic Eatery has three catering events this month. And while this is all fantastic and exciting, it has created an imbalance in many areas of my life.
