In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “On the Edge.”
I try to live with as much balance in my life as possible, but I do find it very difficult. I have noticed that times when I am non-stop – working, studying, learning, socialising, etc – I end up burning out and having a meltdown.
So, in order to keep myself on a calm and collected level, I sleep a lot and try to incorporate as much yoga into my schedule as possible. Also, I like to journal as much as possible and reflect back on my day and my life in general. Having time for deep meaningful thought really refreshes me both physically and emotionally. And, as an introvert, having time to myself where I can relax and be alone is extremely important. If I end up spending too much time in social situations (even ones I enjoy with friends or family) I become extremely exhausted and worn out.
I really have been struggling lately with trying to find the right balance in my life – so that I don’t end up overworking myself and burning out or isolating myself in a corner and becoming depressed. It really is a fine line between the two for me and I need to constantly be on top of myself to make sure I stay in the okay zone. I do know it will be a lifetime struggle and hopefully one day things will make more sense for me.
Life is constantly changing and so are we humans.
