AYD - April 23, 2014 - Out of Balance- Out of Mind

“I think the most significant work we’ll do in our whole life, in our whole world is done within the four walls of our home.”
- Stephen Covey

Word for the day - Balance.

We do not often sit down when things feel off.  Our mood, our day, our job.  Things don't feel right and we cannot put our finger on it.  Often, we stop there and just continue to feel off.

When our child is off, we should be analyzing his HALT while we search for understanding to his behaviour in a particular moment.  Is he  Hungry, Angry, Lonely, or Tired ?  HALT.
My wife and I learned to apply the same concept to ourselves and we discovered it worked well.  It helped us recognize the cause of our feeling "out of balance" and gave us the tools to realign our mood, and thus our control on our responses.

Work can slowly pull you out of balance.  Our focus can easily go to the To Do list and the tug of war can creep to the exhausting side before we recognize the warnings. 

Remember your Balance.

Get your feet back under you by taking a breath in the mornings.  Look around at your Home and all the elements that make it.  Gaze upon the pictures on the wall; the faces, the stories.  Enjoy the quiet for a moment.  Home, is the creation of your balance.  Our feet fit well here in the Wall of Fame molds.

This is where all your success is built on and from.  Let it relieve that wobbly feeling ( in whatever form it brings to you).  Regain your Balance ... and then Begin your day.

Good Morning,
Greater Day.

Greater you, is a an example of Balance to remind others.
