When we are out of balance, we are out of creativity.

Last night at the gym, I tweeted about balance. The topic of balance has been in my thoughts lately especially now that I have ended the drought of going to gym. The gym has been apart of my routine for the last several years but I allowed it to become non-existent over the last several months and of course there is a price to pay.

Years ago, I read the book The Rhythm of Life by Matthew Kelly and his points stuck. The book is based on finding the rhythm in your life by balancing 4 components.

  1. Spiritual

  2. Emotional

  3. Physical

  4. Intellectual

So, if any one of these key areas in your life is depleted it will cause you to be out of balance and not be in the rhythm you need to be the best version of yourself. Now, we know that we will not be perfect and with each bucket filled exactly the same but there is something very important to be said here.

I encourage you to think about your life and if you are putting focus into each one of these important aspects because your creativity depends on it. When we are out of balance we are out of creativity.

Are you balanced?
