When striving to achieve happiness, you need to be able to find a balance in yourself.

While finding this balance includes external factors, it is how events impact you and your perception that can throw your center of well-being off balance. Some of the most fundamental centers are family, love, self, and lastly financial.

When each of these aspects is in balance, you feel more positive, more motivated, and overall healthier. How are you able to bring all of these into balance to achieve happiness? By following these simple tips.


Sometimes family is thicker than blood, I am sure we have all heard that saying before, and it’s true. Family is not defined by simply blood anymore. Family can include your trusted friends, people who have had a profound impact on your life or anyone of importance to you.

In order to keep this in balance, you should always look at your relationships and what they mean to you. Are they toxic, to where when you are around them you think less of yourself? Or does this person encourage you to become a better person each and every time you are around them?


Love is a center that focus on your love life. Relationships always require compromise and work. No relationship is perfect, but that does not mean it should lower your personal standards, or make you question your morals.

In order to keep your love center in balance, find a partner who complements your strengths and makes up for your weaknesses. While that is not always important, be sure you feel as though you are still able to reach your dreams and accomplishments; fulfillment in a relationship is essential, especially when it comes to long term.


While keeping your “self” center in balance may sound easy, many people stray from it quite often. Unfortunately, in this day and age, it is very easy to stray from your “self”. Your “self” includes your morals, confidence, dignity, and self-respect.

When any of those building blocks is chipped away for long enough, there is a breakdown of the “self” center. When that happens, you start to act out of character, you begin to lose trust, or you may even become depressed. Keeping this particular center in balance is one of the most crucial to finding happiness.


They say that money is the root of all evil, and for some it is. That is a horrible way to look at a potentially fantastic tool for advancement. This center includes your job stability, how comfortable you are in your position, as well as how well balanced your finances are.

If you are constantly in debt, this center is off and needs to be brought back into line. Sometimes that means budgeting more or looking for a new job. Either way, this is one center that has a great impact on the rest of your core centers, so be sure not to underplay it!

Keeping your centers in line is critical to achieving happiness. These centers often go by different names, yet they all convey a similar meaning. If something is off balance in your life, try to find a way to center it. When things are amiss, it tends to set negative consequences into action. Since you know about this now, how are you looking to promote a more centered you?
