Ebb and Flow

Living aboard a 36 foot sailboat teaches you many things about life. Your days are dictated by the ebb and flow of tides; the action of the sun and moon on the planet’s bodies of water. It is a foolhardy sailor who doesn’t respect the tides.

So too, the yin and yang of your health depends on finding the path of least resistance to a place of balance. It is pretty obvious that the way we have been living does not bring us closer to health. Too much work; too little sleep. Too much worrying; too little laughter. Too many preservatives and God knows what else in our food.

The crazy thing is that when you think about the moments in your life when you were at your healthiest, it is usually at a time when you were living in tune with the ebb and flow of your life, not against it. Simple – it is that simple. Take this moment to reflect on how you are living your life. Are you going with the flow or swimming against it?

  1. This post is wonderful & so true! Living life in balance sounds so simple but is often times elusive! Always striving for the goal, & with chosen lifestyle it does lend itself to attaining!

  2. It is truly a simple concept. Perhaps we need tragedy in our lives to awaken us to what is good and right for us. Simplicity is living aboard but we can still do better. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
