Written by Cherie Rickard

If achieving goals and pursuing your passions were easy and simple, everybody would do it quickly and without any trouble or difficulty. Regardless of whether your vision is clear and if you can articulate a clear destiny there are always obstacles along any life journey.

It’s the happiness on the journey when clearing these difficulties that makes life fun, and benefits people feel truly accomplished when they finally reach their true pinnacle of success. So why is it some of us have it a little easier than others in balancing family, daily routines, work, hobbies and pursuing other passions and interest? These individuals have conquered battle fatigue! When your facing battle fatigue you’ve become lost in the balance of life.

Battle fatigue sets in when 1 of your 3 beings are off balance. We are created Emotionally, Physically and Spiritually and serving each being of ourselves is imperative to a balanced life full of success. You can’t run on empty in any of these areas. Sometimes with battle fatigue, it’s not a business problem your facing, it’s a physical problem.

Too often we are fighting battles because of how we take care of ourselves or lack of. You can work out 5 days a week, but if you’re drained emotionally or spiritually, you won’t be your best self. You can pray or meditate 3 times a day, but you won’t feel well physically or emotionally in battle fatigue. Living balanced is the key.

You can’t stay up all night and not get your rest and expect to feel good the next day. You won’t have the passion you need, the creativity and you won’t make good decisions. If you’re waiting for a miracle to become successful or accomplish your goals, try living a balanced lifestyle instead.

One of the main causes of non-clinical depression is simply a lack of sleep and poor diet. Pay attention to the house you live in, I am referring to your body. It’s easy to work all the time, thinking about what to do next and becoming a workaholic has never served anyone for good.

You will be your most productive when your 3 beings are balanced Emotionally, Physically and Spiritually. When you neglect one area, it will limit what you can accomplish and your subject to battle fatigue. Your life will be more rewarding when you can feel connected in balance.

If you’re going to reach your highest potential, you may just start your day in gratitude, making an adjustment in your emotional being and changing your attitude. The simple adjustment might be a daily morning routine to get your day going in an emotionally positive direction.

Some more drastic changes but often necessary could be reevaluating who you select to surround yourself with. That being said, you can often define your own mindset by the 5 people you choose to spend the most time with. Make those adjustments as you see fit to remain balanced and mentally healthy.

Changes in how your brain functions also can have a big effect on your body. Is it any wonder, that sadness, negative attitudes, depression and grief contributes to a wide array of physical problems that affect everything from your heart to your immune system? Your emotional being affects much more than your moods.

It can contribute to physically increased aches and pains, chronic fatigue, weight gain, weight loss, insomnia or oversleeping. Creating a physical being doesn’t mean you need to start going to the gym daily.

An adjustment could be to stop, regroup unplug from social media and take time for recreation. A walk, finding a league game of a particular sport you enjoy or taking up yoga at home. Committing to a physical change will make all the difference to a better-balanced lifestyle.

Last but not least let’s discuss Spiritual balance. Emotional and physical imbalances often carry spiritual side effects that make it difficult to feel peace, love, or joy. The hustle and bustle of life make it easy to get distracted with other things that seem to take on greater importance than our spirituality.
