Journal: 

Reflect on the balance between different areas of your life including self care, sleep, work, friends, family, nutrition, fitness, relaxation, and anything else that is important to you.  How does the balance between these elements feel in your life right now? Is there anything that could use a little more or less attention? 

What helps you feel balanced? Keep in mind, balance is ever changing. We do not achieve balance as a fixed point, it shifts and changes much like the seasons!
