Anything too much, for too long a time, is tiring, this is what I discovered today. It is so easy to have too much of the same thing for too long a time.

Too much work and no vacation. Too much study and no play. Too much play with no serious goal seeking activity. Too much stress with no relaxation. Too much silence with no meaningful conversations. Too much email with no meaningful work done. Too much of stimilui and no quiet time. The list can go on and on.

We take these excesses for granted, but life is about balance. The ill effects of such imbalances soon begin to take toll on our health, our wealth, our relationships,---.

For most of us, the danger is, we are not even aware, before it is too late.

The solution that comes to my mind is to take stock of these imbalances in one's life and begin to correct them. One imbalance at a time.

I will report back after a few posts on this important aspect of life.

How about you? Are you ready to take a similar stock of the imbalances in your life?

we find balance in moderation. moderation brings contentment. unless we realize that in our lives, we will never find any balance in everything that we do.
