Life is not all or nothing, black or white, yes or no, good or evil. It is about maintaining an equilibrium or balance within life that achieves one’s physical and emotional health in the best way possible. There are many sites on the web that promote balance only as a matter or how your exercise or how you eat. So many leave out the most important qualifier; how mental health affects physical health – and likewise. The intention of this blog is to help the reader achieve true balance that is holistically derived. By holistic, I mean the gestalt belief that the “whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” Specifically this means that by only focusing on a part of what makes up balance one is not addressing the whole that provides a true, viable balance. The road that lies ahead through this blog is the journey to positive, effective balance!
