It’s difficult to be self-empowered if your life is out of balance. You need to adopt a fitness routine, eat more alkaline food, clean the junk out of your life (physical, mental, and emotional), set goals and act on them, and become more aware of your life path.
Part of the reason why people feel apathetic and afraid is because they have no personal stake and control in their own life. They have given away too much of their autonomy and power to outside forces, believing these people and energies to be in charge or dominant. This is not the case.
In order to live happily and find internal peace, you must take conscious responsibility for everything around you. You need to restore balance to your life by staying present, disciplining the mind and body, releasing attachments, and building a connection with the deeper parts of life, including nature, dreams, and your inner Self.
Life balance is self-care. It is acknowledging the importance of physical wellness, mental focus, and emotional clarity, and taking the necessary steps to actively cultivate these states.
