Maintaining balance in your life requires keeping your soul healthy. What is your soul? It’s that part of you that you know is there, but you just can’t quite describe. It’s what makes you you -your essence, if you will. If you’re neglecting this aspect of yourself, just as with the mind & body, you will become out of balance. You may say, “I’m not religious” or “I don’t believe in that kind of stuff,” but even if you’re agnostic or atheist (which by the way, I’m a Christian & I truly do not judge those who don’t have my same beliefs), you still have a spiritual component to your “self,” & if you’re not nurturing it, you’re neglecting a third of your being. As a Christian, I nurture my soul through many different outlets, including daily devotions, prayer, meditation, yoga, & maintaining healthy relationships with others. If you don’t have the same spiritual beliefs as I do, rest assured you can still nurture your soul. You can do this through meditation, yoga, & maintaining healthy relationships to feel connected to something larger than yourself. These activities don’t have to be religious-focused. No matter your spiritual beliefs, or lack thereof, you still have a soul that needs to be nurtured and maintained. Future articles will assist you in your journey to a healthier soul.
