      Firstly, I don’t Totally Agree with the writer’s assessment that total mindfulness and Balance are lies. I Imagine Balance Is A Major Key Factor in 99.9% of the discussion HERE.

      Interestingly enough, Balance is the “PeeWee Herman Word of the Day” which Illuminated this a.m.

      I Vibe with the rest of the article, though; that sentence rubbed me wrong for some reason.

      “if it’s not, talk to yourself like you’re your own supportive friend. Or put a hand over your heart or give yourself a hug. "Be there for yourself. Physical soothing touch releases oxytocin and other opiates in your bloodstream to counteract stress. So this is really powerful neuroscience,” says Bell.

          Yes, I find that by focusing on one task at a time, my energy is not scattered. My pace is slower yet I still get a lot accomplished by the end of the day. And, most importantly, I’m not exhausted. I have a deep feeling of my day being balanced and purposeful.
