Practice Balance

We know it is important to have balance between different parts of our lives and Plimsoll Gear®, a local brand led by our friend Dee Jaye Femia, is here to remind us how do to just that. Plimsoll Gear® believes that when we are in balance, we feel safe and equipped to weather life's storms. Their clothing and products are designed with this philosophy in mind – to remind us that feeling good begins with finding balance. 

The First Step of Finding Balance Begins with Recognizing the Imbalance.

The hustle and bustle of daily life can sometimes blind us to the subtle signs of imbalance. Take a moment to reflect on your current state. Are you constantly stressed, neglecting self-care, or feeling overwhelmed by obligations? Consider journaling your thoughts and emotions, or simply taking a few moments of quiet reflection each day. Awareness is the first step toward regaining balance in your life.

Do the Things, No Matter How Small, That Will Help You Get Centered.

Once you've identified the areas of imbalance, it's time to take action. Start with small, manageable steps that align with your personal well-being. Whether it's setting aside time for a daily walk, practicing mindfulness, or reconnecting with a hobby you enjoy, these actions can gradually shift the balance back in your favor. Refuse to sink by actively participating in activities that bring you joy and a sense of fulfillment.

Most Importantly, Be Kind to Yourself.

In the journey to regain balance, it's crucial to be gentle with yourself. Acknowledge that everyone experiences periods of imbalance, and it's okay to seek help or make adjustments. Self-compassion is not a sign of weakness but a powerful tool for personal growth.

In addition to long walks and time on the yoga mat, I often find balance in solitude. I love being surrounded by people and hearing the stories and laughter of friendship around me, but when I need to refill my cup and find my balance, I know that I have to do it alone.
