When you are turned on by living, you radiate an inner wellness that draws positive people and situations to you. You are alive and your physical, mental and spiritual energy surges.
One way of ensuring this happens is by adding fun to your life. This can be many things for different individuals, but mainly it needs to be something out of the ordinary. Don’t wait for chores to get done, simply bring in an activity that depicts fun, and however small do it daily.
This keeps the child within nurtured and alive, and in return, we are more freed-up to focus and be inspired by the mundane tasks of our lives. Not the other way around, i.e: to do the tasks day in and day out and then leave the fun for a more suitable time.
Here are a few suggestions…
Use your own creative imagination to tap onto your sense of fun. Whatever it is, it must involve you and not be too much like hard work. It must be light and easy unless of course, you take up some form of skilled learning. As long as you ENJOY it. It must not be a chore. Let go of chores.
See resting periodically in the day as a tonic to the mind, body and spirit. Resting, napping, meditating and breathing all help to regulate our equilibrium. This affects our mood levels and appetite, basically our biochemistry. If it is off kilter our bodies compensate, trying constantly to adjust to the stresses of time, and overloading so that the body eventually breaks down in some way. This can manifest itself in forms of injury, accidents, spots, eczema, fibrosis and zillions of physiological ailments. Why wait for that to happen? Take charge of your own vehicle. Take responsibility for how you feel and do something about it. Get rid of guilt, pressure from others and say a big YES to yourself. Chose healthy habits. Tip the balance to well grained positive habits.
Enhance your daily life with a positive habit. However small, see it grow… Rafah Sabbagh 2000
Believing in oneself, being the best friend that you can be to yourself, will bring happiness and inner radiance of joy. It never ceases to amaze me how a simple idea like being our own best friend, looking after our own real interests, can inspire our wellbeing.
Happiness is a choice we make and take. We have complete control. Inner stillness, looking within, removing the blocks and patterns (See CHAKRA).
Not happy about your body shape? Do something about it. Ask yourself how it feels to you. What do you do not like about it? Why?
Physical exercise, as we all know by now, is the golden key to weight loss and redefinition of our body shape. Exercise strengthens the body from the inside out. But if you cannot be motivated to do to anything positive with it then learn to love your body as it is, for what it is, because true inner wealth comes from the inside. No matter how the body is shaped, if the form inside of you feels insecure, ugly, lacking in confidence, it will show up and come through.
Quick fixes, like being under the knife, are no real solution for most people because the real problem has not been dealt with. The issue underneath it is what needs to be addressed and tackled.
Take complete responsibility for reaching a goal. For example, something I’ve heard many times… “I cook and my partner wants to eat different things to me, which means I can’t eat the healthy stuff.”
Look for solutions and not obstacles. Ask yourself How?… by doing that you open up to solutions, enabling them to enter into your sphere. The only way forward is by finding a way through. Most of all do not give up because you can DO IT.
Be unshackled by limitations and limiting beliefs. Take positive steps to achieve the lifestyle you want. You can create it. You can do this by:
