Living in balance doesn’t erase all stress, but some stressors are avoided, some are managed, and the energetic positiveness of a life well-lived would make most days pleasant.
I’m not entirely sure of this, mind you, but a more balanced life makes a fine goal.

I’ll work out more of the particulars along the way, and I’ll carefully weigh the advice and example of people who seem to live in balance or have that positive energy. If you’re feeling stressed out, I encourage you to at least explore some tiny steps towards living life more in balance.
