Balance isn't about how much you can juggle it's about saying no to what's not true for you & knowing you will bounce back no matter what ~Bo Bradley

Bo Bradley, author of Achieving the Balance Dream, recommends the following simple tips to begin immediately reducing stress and achieve balance:
1. Stop. When you start to feel anxious and overwhelmed, stop what you are doing and pinpoint your area of anxiety. Focus on deep breathes and if you cannot quickly resolve the area of anxiety (like financial pressure), focus on something positive.
2. Slow Down. Take some “me” time out for yourself and focus on being calm. Try a relaxing bath, walk in the park, a nice hot tea or a sunset. Pick something that you enjoy and rejuvenates you.
3. Do something Healthy. Try a cleanse and look at your diet overall. Eating healthy will make you feel healthy. Exercise is a great way to reduce stress as well.
4. Say "No". Don't over commit yourself to imagined obligations. Say no to things/events that are not true for you. This clears the path for the things that you do want to come in to your life.
