Life is a balancing act- from work, to play, to how much milk we put on our cereal. This is not some new revelation but it’s worth revisiting. I love the old adage that “it’s not strong enough until it’s too strong.”
Every second of every day, your body is tirelessly performing a balancing act. I suggest we help it out as much as we can. Just like tires or the clutch in your car wear out, things can wear out in your body. The difference is that your body is the only vehicle you will have for life so it needs to be serviced on a daily basis.
