Positive vs. Negative: The Balance

Good morning ♡

Monday has arrived and it’s the beginning of another work week. How  do you utilize your time? Today, pay close attention to how you invlove yourself in each area of your life. Is your mind running on what to make for dinner while you are busy in a work meeting? Are thinking about your favorite TV show while preparing your children for bed?  Multitasking is a great skill, but burn out is real and can begin in the mind as most life outcomes do. Use your positive space, the time in your day in which you are engaged in lively  activities  (i.e. work, school,taking care if the kids, etc), to be present in that moment. Pay attention to what matters in each area and embrace it. When all is said and done for the day and you have your “down”time,” your negative space, & make a point to spend this time taking care of you. Delve into your core and Spirit. Prepare yourself for the day ahead and give to yourself what you have given out: Love, tenderness, care. Live in the moment and embrace each area of your life for what it is. This can help acheieve that balance that we all require to live to the fullest of our potentials. Love yourself & be yourself. Peace & Love ♡ ☆ -visit peacefulprojectblog.wordpress.com

Action :

Try the Box method! I have done this and even though it is easy to fall back into old habita, this really works when you are trying to organize and balance your life. Someone once told me that they put each area of their life into boxes: at work,they are working, at home they are the spouse & the parent, with friends, they are the friend, & alone they are with themself. In each box,their time and energy is dedicated to that role. In the positive space, they engage in each role, giving their energy towards the tasks at hand and being present in the moment. Specifically in the alone role, they are utilizing the negative space (not negative in the sense of doing something harmful or non-productive or hurtful, but rather a space in which they pay attention to their own needs and self, paying attention to their core and Spirit, sometimes engainge with others that assist in that process). How do you use you positive and negative spaces? How do you make use of your upful and active time and your quiet and alone time? To make this activity more visual, draw the boxes on paper and label them as the areas of your life and in each box list the activities of each role. If you run out of space in each one, it’s time to prioritize.

Quote: ” No person, no place, and no thing has any power over us, for ‘we’ are the only thinkers in our mind. When we create peace and harmony and balance in our minds, we will find it in our lives.”-Louise L. Hay
