Balance is tricky, as it doesn’t take into account our forever shifting psychology, neurology and physiology. What might seem like balance one day, won’t continue on others, and trust me, I think the person that created the idea of ‘work/life balance’ did so in order to drive everyone to insanity. Layer in the current obsession with hacking ones life/body/brain and optimising everything to within an inch of itself, and it’s the opposite of harmony.
Harmony involves intuition. It doesn’t involve an agenda and tight time line. It’s undemanding. It’s relenting, softer. Kinder. If instead of balance, you try create harmony, which works with flow, and the heart, the whole process of living will be less like chasing your own tail, and far more peaceful. Inner harmony needs to be the focus. And then outer harmony is the way in which you bring that inner harmony to your interactions with the world.
I would also recommend taking a read of this which I think addresses this well.
