Top 15 Balanced Life Quotes

An active, balanced lifestyle is important to anyone who desires to live a longer, successful, and healthy life. It’s not a worrisome perfectionism that might first come to mind, but rather a life that provides a continuing awareness of where the extremes lie, and living in the middle.

The result is healthy activity in all areas that aren’t in the extremes. Also, healthy balance doesn’t produce the guilt and worry of striving for perfectionism nor the unhealthy sloth of ignoring what will improve your life.
