By actively focusing on your mental, spiritual, physical, and social health, along with your life's purpose and environment, you can begin to find balance and harmony in your life. Below, we offer some tips to help you get started. Begin by focusing in on one at a time, making an effort alternate between different areas. 02 of 07 Focus on Mental Health Consider meditation as a way to improve focus, reduce stress, and sharpen your awareness. Stop collecting hurtful words. Just as clearing your home of your unnecessary clutter can help us find focus and intention, letting go of the negative thoughts you've been holding on to can help free your emotional body of hurt.Remember that bad things happen to good people. The next time you feel that the universe has unjustly targeted you, take a deep breath and be grateful you are paying back karma rather than asking yourself "Why me?" 03 of 07 Focus on Spiritual Health Start paying more attention to your dreams. There's a lot we can find out about ourselves by delving into our subconscious minds. A recurring dream could hold a deeper meaning. Review your dreams each morning and consider their possible meanings. You might also consider keeping a dream journal. Become aware of karmic consequences and emphasize behaviors that promote harmony and balance. Consider a spiritual name change. Sometimes, a name change can help individuals better identify with who they are or serve as a milestone to honor how far they've come.Improve your understanding of the four basic elements to help you identify your individual strengths and weaknesses. Many healing traditions and religions incorporate the elements in their practices. 04 of 07 Focus on Physical Health Use natural remedies for symptoms like headaches, sore throats, and minor digestive issues. You can start by creating your own holistic healing kit. Find out if your health insurance policy covers options like energy medicine, acupuncture, and massage therapy. Consider drum therapy as a way to connect with your body's natural rhythms. 05 of 07 Focus on Social Health Assess which relationships in your life are most beneficial to you and which are most harmful. The principle of spiritual mirroring can help you do this. Consider tantric yoga or tantric sex to improve your sexual health and strengthen intimacy with your partner. Try strengthening your relationship with your partner using the soul-mediation process. Asking your soul to talk to the other person's soul on your behalf may be able to help you improve direct communications in the future. 06 of 07 Focus on Finding Your Purpose Improve your focus. Use these strategies to train your mind to stay on track and become more productive. Learn to connect with your higher self. Your higher self is not an entity separate from you, it is very much a part of you. Connecting with this higher self is an essential step in finding your personal truth. Learn to accept uncertainty. As important as it is to align ourselves with our intentions and stay focused, it's also important to learn how to accept occasional shifts in focus with ease. 07 of 07 Focus on Your Home and Environment Chakra blockages are often mirrored by the state of disarray in the various rooms in your home. Achieve a greater balance in your life by decluttering and cleaning your home environment according to these principles.Try to eliminate as many toxic scents, like perfumes and other scented products, from your day-to-day life. Consider dowsing as a way of finding blocked chi areas in your home or even locating lost objects.
