An unbalanced mind goes on holidays and is an unbalanced mind on holidays. An unbalanced mind is confused at work and at home. A balanced person has a balanced mind. So, instead of confusing life balance with home and work time, consider a balanced person as balanced in all seven areas of life. Hence, balanced thinking makes for a balanced person. And a balanced person can be relied upon, deals with decisions wisely, makes good choices and heals emotions and broken heart faster. It's an advantage in all aspects of life to learn to live with a balanced mind.

The first natural law, and the first step on the loop of Back on Track is Balance.
All emotions are imbalanced thoughts. So, we must start by learning how to balance an emotion so you can become the master guru of your own story in life. If you have a story about the past that is out of balance (more pleasure than pain or more pain than pleasure) then you are definitely stuck in the past and will relive that story over and over, rather than create a new one.
This is the essence of mental health. A Healthy Headspace.
Depression is caused by the habit of lopsided (one sided) thinking to seek pleasure without pain, right without wrong, good without bad, self better than other. All are imbalanced thoughts and deny the universal truth: nature seeks balance in everything - so imbalance can only be a human thought, a perception, or more realistically, a misperception.
We begin with "Gratitude for the Past"
You can't go one step into the future, holding anything other than appreciation for the past.
What you appreciate grows, what you don't appreciate depreciates.
What you judge in the past you breed (in your children), attract (in your next partner or boss) or become. So, to change the future, change your perceptions of the past.
Finally remember, people become as you treat them... The past is your greatest determinant as to how you treat people because it creates expectations, fears and triggers. People become as you treat them, and if we deal with the past, people will become great because we'll treat them as new, rather than with memories and fears from the past.
When you come home from work worried or elated from a great day, you are not turning up at home. If you think you had a great day you are back in the day. If you think you had a bad day, you are back in the day. If you say "I had a balanced day" it may not sound exciting, but it is because you have actually arrived home.
