I believe nature has sustained itself for so long due to one key factor. A delicate balance that makes everything perfectly in tune. There is a natural synchronisation of practically every thing, making them work together. Natural phenomenon such as the water cycle, and oxygen cycle are all workings or balance and continuity. Even food chains and food webs in ecological system serve to create a balance in nature by controlling the population of one species by another species. The exponential growth of human have increased human activities drastically, thereby causing a significant change in the balance that has been maintained all this while. Humans are a key part of nature, and the effect we have on the ecosystem is quite great.
I believe that our failure to maintain balance in all we do is a major cause of a lot of problems for us. If we look closely, we’d see that even the human body is designed to strike a balance. For instance, when digestion happens, the body absorbs some of it and excretes what is left in form of feaces. Although, the extra work the body does during this process is to save some of the energy it has absorbed for when it will need to break it down. Personally, I think the human body is the epitome of perfection. Maybe some other time, I will write what makes me think so about it.
You would agree with me that it is possible to strike a balance in our body weight just by eating the right quantity of food we need depending on the kind of activities we indulge in daily. You see, the reason we gain weight is basically because we eat more than our body needs. When the body absorbs more energy (this can be in form of fat or carbohydrate) than it needs, it starts storing the excess in different parts of the body. The human body does a lot of regulating daily, and there are a lot of things to regulate, it is continuously working to maintain a balance.
As a student, and I believe a good number of us are or have been one at some point. My major problem has been striking a balance between studying, my social life and my personal life among other things. Looking closely at the 168 hours in a week, an average of 35 hours is spent receiving lectures while I am expected to sleep for about 49–56hours on average. That is about half of the time I have in a week spent on just sleep and lectures. The other half I am to divide between many other things such as studying. Perhaps when you look at 80 hours which is over 3 days in a week, it looks long enough to do all the other things you have to do. But you would agree with me that when you start using time, time seems to move faster.
We must learn to balance every thing we do: be it on a daily or weekly or monthly or yearly every this is synchronised to work in a balanced system, and a deficiency in one will affect other things in the system. We might find that using this method can make us live a happier, and more fulfilled life.
In essence, finding balance is the keynote for today’s article, I am merely using analogy in nature and citing some of the workings of the human body as a way of explaining why it is pertinent to maintain balance in life. As it is nature’s way of ensuring longevity and sustainability.
