7 Principles of Living a Balanced Life

NAMI Southwestern Pennsylvania and Allegheny Family Network recently presented a workshop called "Self Care for Families and Caregivers" at the Regional Recovery Conference.

During the workshop, they discussed the 7 Principles of Leading a Balanced Life.

1.) Do as much financially and physically to improve the situation

2.) Strive for good physical health

3.) Watch your stress level

4.) Maintain social contacts

5.) Seek out and join a support group

6.) Continue pursuing your own interests

7.) Do something for someone else; give back

We will highlight one of these principles each week for the next seven weeks. Stay tuned.
