Balance. The necessity of balance is evident in virtually every aspect of our lives. We are encouraged to eat healthy by adopting a balanced diet. We are coached to strive for an optimal work-life balance, to reduce stress, improve productivity and ensure a healthy home life. Balance is crucial in our ecology, to help protect the planet.
