A Balanced Life

Be encouraged by these poems about keeping a balance in your life. Let the verses remind you that living a balanced life is one we must all strive to do.

The first thing we think of in life balance is our balance between work and play. We can sometimes let our work take over our life and that just leads to burn out as without some downtime to recharge your batteries life will catch up to you.

A balance with your family and friends is also important. If you never spend time with them you will find it has an impact on your relationships. And if you spend to much time with them you will find it may affect how you feel towards them.

And what about a balance for where you want to be in 5 years. If you set no goals you will end up in exactly the same place you are now. And if your only focus is on your goals you will miss out on living life today.

So as you can see there is a balance needed in every aspect of our lives. Let the poems, quotes, and thoughts about living a balanced life be ones that encourage you to do that!

A Balanced Life

Poet: Julie Hebert, 2011

Every life needs some balance,
As there are always ups and downs.
Remember what they always say,
What goes up, must come down.

But if you live with that in mind,
And balance is the key.
You will find that doors unlock,
A little more easily.

And then there are times you may feel,
That downs are much more great.
Don't let this get you down,
Just change your mental state.

Think of what to do,
That could change the way you feel.
And balance will come back,
Balance will help you heal.

Too Much Of Anything
Poet: Sam Fickinsen, 2020

Too much of anything is never good
Remember when your Mother said, you should
Take all things in life in moderation
It is good advice and some inspiration.

If life was all play
Perhaps it would be fun days
But nothing would get done
And that would be no fun.

If life was all work
You would say with a smirk
Life is no fun
Look at all I have to get done.

But having a balance each day is the way
Get your work done but make time for play
You will feel more rested and happy each day
If you have a balance and make moderation your way.
