Let’s get Balance
Can we talk for a sec about balance?
bal·ance [ bal-uhns ] noun.
1. an instrument for determining weight.
2. in a stereophonic sound system, the comparative loudness of two speakers.
3. accounting : equality between the totals of the two sides of an account.
4. a state of equilibrium or equipoise; equal distribution of weight, amount, etc.
Whether we’re referencing a checkbook, a sound system, a meal, or a mental state… Balance is way of measuring distribution.
So, what does it mean to be “living in balance”? Does achieving personal balance mean spending an equal amount of time focusing on physical health, mental health, spirituality, professional success, good relationships, leisure…?
Is it safe to assume that most people contemplate these things at one point or another? I certainly do... The implication being that finding the right balance could mean achieving happiness.
Wouldn’t that be grand?
Sorry to get all philosophical... but I’ve had several people ask me why I chose the name “Balance Blend” for our latest coffee, so I’ve been thinking on it and here’s what it boils down to:
So it’s really a matter of focus. Where the focus goes, energy flows.
Perhaps we have too strong a tendency to focus on pleasing others above pleasing ourself, which is draining. In many cases, the luxury of self-focus is not available because of time constraints and life demands. Conundrum?
I guess the Balance Blend was born from my desire to add some luxury and mindfulness to an already cherished morning ritual. Coffee is the second most consumed beverage in the world. So, maybe if there’s one time of day when people are the most consistently focused on themselves, it’s in the morning, refreshed from sleep, perhaps in the only silence they’ll experience that day, while they savor each sip of the coffee that was specifically curated... just for them.
We hope that our mix of mood mindful ingredients will help you to achieve mental steadiness, emotional stability, and balanced energy to help you focus on the things that really matter. Plus, we think the combination of vanilla and lavender tastes really good😋
Remember to fill your cup up, so that you have enough to share with others when they need it, metaphorically and for real
THINK SMART. DRINK SMART.
