Quality vs Quantity– What Makes Life Worth Living?

Source: Life Inseparable

Living according to the status quo means we slow down with age.  Such expectations become self-fulfilling if we believe them.  Fortunately, there’s always those who defy “the usual,” the heroes I like putting on my own vision board of the future.

Living with purpose and joy matters, at least to some of us, instead of merely existing.  What’s your plan??

Appreciate yourself first to Improve yourself

Appreciating your body means accepting yourself as is, being grateful for the simple gifts of breathing, moving, thinking. With appreciation comes a desire to give your body what it needs to function at it’s peak performance.  With this positive mindset, you may find exercise and proper nutrition is no longer a punishment, but rather a gift to say “thanks” to this amazing living machine!

Why Learn to Meditate | How to Meditate.

Outside stressors cause inner turmoil, driving us to choose coping mechanisms which often become bad habits. Mine is binge snacking which makes me gain weight and worsens my stress!  Intellectually I know better, but the craving overwhelms me into making a bad choice in a moment of weakness. Weakness. Overwhelmed. Being controlled…. these words make me mad, mad enough to find a real solution!

I believe meditation is that solution. Instead of battling my body and its zany hormones head-on, I need to stop, breathe, focus, let my willpower take charge and make better choices.  I think Taylor Swift has coined the one-liner of a generation:  “Shake it Off” — it’s a great response to stress as well as a great song to play inside your head to drown out the negative noises.
