Day in and day out, we need to stay active and at the very least, an easy rule of thumb is to break a light sweat at least once a day. It does not have to be intense, but on a non-working out day, it's a good rule to follow. This can be achieved by doing things like taking the stairs or carrying your groceries home from the supermarket.

Part of love is service. It feels good to help out, and what that does for your spirit can often make up for a deficiency of physical energy. But (for me, at least) those delicious feelings dry up under the harshness of overextending out of obligation.

Wake up and ask yourself: how can I serve today? How can I embody love? How can I bring joy? How can I leave this world a better place? Have a spirit of service as you go about your day. Be a blessing, good company, an inspiration to others. You get more of what you give, so if you lack love, joy or abundance, find a way to help others find it. It will return to you a hundredfold.

The Illusory Quest for Balance

Linda L. Addison

My message to millennials is this: if you seek both a rewarding career and a fulfilling personal life, you will have to make choices, but choosing between career and family is not one of them. Don't believe it has to be all or nothing. Stop beating yourself up with the elusive quest for "balance."
