Live Well with Ballet Austin
Life happens; circumstances out of our control, and sometimes our own choices. In general, our well-being is dependent upon our thoughts, decisions, behaviors and social supports. Some circumstances may not change, but it is possible to recognize negative influences, make changes, and thrive!
What does living well mean to you? You might say that living well is a list of things to do or not do that make life better. But what does a better life look like?
Jean-Paul Sartre wrote that “Everything has been figured out, except how to live.” And that’s true. Life is a continuous lesson. We can’t always pinpoint the exact formula that contributes to that feeling of knowing we are living well. Each person has a different combination of factors and influences, both good and bad, that go into their own unique life. Those things often determine whether life is lived well or not.
Join us as we identify what gets in the way, learn how to clear our life path of the unnecessary and unhealthy, and discover how to live well.
