Live a rewarding life: Here’s how

An inspired life is filled with positivity, dreams, goals, and intentions that promote passion within the heart, mind, body, and soul.

Inspiration is my first approach to well-being and represents one of my lifelong essentials.

I believe good energy can be generated from positive behaviors and thoughts.  Here are some “inspired” lifelong essentials that I have found helpful in my life:

Pursuing your passion allows you to do things you enjoy.  Think about what inspires you. Write-out your vision, be patient and work towards your dreams and goals every day!

Imagining your best self is a rewarding experience! It allows you the opportunity to determine who you want to be. Start by determining what changes need to be made and act NOW!

Challenging your brain improves critical thinking skills, enhances mental fitness and helps create the most successful version of you!

Building positive habits creates a positive mindset!  Start each day with a balanced breakfast and daily affirmation! This routine will help jumpstart your day in the right direction.

When pursuing your passion, go to your designated dream zone! For me, it’s the library.  I find the library to be a very relaxing atmosphere filled with awesome resources and staff. I encourage you to visit your local library and sit in sections of interest and write-out your goals and vision. Don’t be discouraged if it takes you a while to find what inspires your heart. I’m 48 years old, and I believe you are never too old to image your best self. Be patient and make the journey fun!

I hope you find my lifelong essentials helpful and I encourage you to develop some of your own.
