Find the balance

From my little experiences so far, I have noted that too much of any particular thing is bad for you, just as too little of it is detrimental. When does a thing become too much or too little? This question can only be answered in relation to how that thing is meant to be used.

Too much salt can lead to high blood pressure and heart disease, whereas too little can lead to a condition known as Hyponatremia, which could result in seizures. In the same vein, believe it or not, too much water can kill you with over hydration and too little leads to dehydration. The amount of salt recommended per day is about 6 grams or one teaspoon full, while the amount of water recommended per day is a weight of 2kg (2 litres – 9 tea cups full). 

In view of this, getting the right balance seems key in our ability to thrive. The more one masters how to get the balance right, the more they are able to benefit from their experiences. One of the secrets to good cooking is to get the right proportions of the ingredients into the meal. 

With everything that we do in life, we have to find the balance on every activity we perform, some require more time than others, but only you determine what that is to live your most effective life.
