So I have just been introduced to the world of twitter and facebook. Man has it shifted me OUT OF BALANCE!
Instead of getting up every morning, going for a nice walk or jog to get the morning energy flowing. To then come home to a nice warm shower, clean cloths and a home cooked breakfast. Full, yet skinny belly because work out #1 is already crossed off my list and I’m moving stress free (ie: no stress hormone production in my body that would increases belly fat). I then drive 7 miles to my beach front office where I get to smell the crisp salty ocean air and look at palm trees out my treatment room window. Patient #1…then #2. Three and four. A break for lunch. PS- whole foods is 2 blocks from my office or I can dine at the organic Mexican food place downstairs or take my packed lunch to the beach! Patient #5, then 6…maybe a #7. Some office work and patient calls/emails. Then off to yoga I go at 4:30 or 5:45! Sweat out some toxins, maybe get an after yoga surf or beach volleyball game in. Then home! To a healthy cooked meal, drinks with friends, some patient research or personal time to study my Spanish, meditate or do some painting. I crawl into bed about 10:30pm and then get to do it all over again! Just another beautiful day in sunny San Diego, California!
Facebook. Twitter. My balanced life NO MORE!!!
And this isn’t for personal reasons or I’d enroll in FBAnonymous or TWITAnonymous and get some serious recovery under my belt. Which I may have to buy a bigger belt soon since exercise hasn’t happened in 2weeks! All I do is computer, computer, computer. I just wanted to look for more up to date and alternative ways to continue educating people about Natural Medicine! I absolutely LOVE what I do! The healing modalities and experience I can offer people like YOU!
So, how do you stay balanced in life when your other passions (like work) are consuming you? This is an epidemic problem altering our society! Wouldn’t you agree?
My patients complain of no sleep, less exercise, getting caught late at work and eating poorly because they are tired, bored, emotional, stressed, on the run 24-7. And now I find myself so immersed in social media that I want to share EVERY THOUGHT because I see value in every thought and I want to get it down NOW, but I’m sacrificing myself and my beliefs to play the social media game.
How do you stay balanced in a world that is moving and communicating faster every day, every minute, every second?
