'BALANCELIFE' is inspired by the idea that maintenance of an optimal state of health and well-being can only be achieved through daily balance in every aspect of life.
From the beginning of its existence the human being, like all parts of living nature, has built-in mechanisms to continually create and heal itself. Our lifestyles, habits, substances we consume, air we breathe, quality of sleep, emotions and mindset etc. all determine where we stand on the spectrum between good health (life) and poor health (death) from one moment to the next.
Maintaining good health is inseparable from living life to the fullest. Health = Life !
“Fill your bowl to the brim and it will spill. Keep sharpening your knife and it will blunt.”
