Happiness lies in striking a balance. As millennials, we are entering the phase of life where we end up focusing on work, hoping and believing that work is the only thing that is going to make us happy. What we tend to ignore is the inevitable burnout. Your body is going to give up at some point! That is the classic definition of neglect of the self, as described in Ayurveda.

It’s the well-proportioned state between the opposites of rest and activity, work and play, day and night, hot and cold. In physiological terms, balance is reflected in the homeostatic stability that helps to ensure the optimal functioning of our body.
