As you incorporate each of them into the rhythm of your life, you will experience higher and higher levels of vibrancy and vitality. Your well-being will flourish and you will thrive! Here’s how.
Eat – Feed Your Well-being.
Experience the joy of mindfully eating real, clean, whole food every day, throughout the day. Let food be a pleasure. Resist the urge to connect food to deprivation and denial. Question fad diets that ultimately drain and disappoint you. Establish food rituals that bring beauty to your eating. Notice and appreciate the look, feel, and taste of your food. Connect what you eat to how you feel. Make eating well a priority. Every day. No excuses. You’re worth it.
Move – Learn How To Move.
Move your body. Learn how it feels to exercise with intensity and vigor. Learn how it feels to move gently and gracefully. Try new things. Explore yoga or Pilates or stretching. Push yourself hard as you run or bike or swim. Compete. Dance. Add small movements throughout your day. Stretch. Feel the blood pumping through your body and become aware of where your muscles are and how they connect to one another. Open up your joints. Move.
Rest – Discover How To Fully Restore Yourself
When you exert, you must also rest. Build rest into your waking hours. Discover how much sleep you need to fully restore yourself. Seven hours. Eight? Nine? You deserve the life that you will live when fully rested. Learn to wind down before bed so you can sleep more soundly. Sit in silence. Breathe. Meditate. Slow down. Choose stillness. Turn off the TV and the radio and the computer and the phone. Unplug. Create space in your life to just be.
Connect – Family & Friends
Relationships matter. You were made for love and intimacy so settle for nothing less. Cherish your family. Cultivate friendships. Invest in people. Join a movement. Find your flock. Make time for conversation and a personal touch. Love with wild abandon. Forgive routinely.
Strive – Play To Win
Commit to a lifetime of growth. Set goals. Regularly step up to challenges. Practice saying “Bring It On.” Be willing to make the effort and invest the energy required to live your fullest life with intensity. Stretch yourself. Play to win.
When you put all those pieces together you will experience what it feels like to thrive. I want nothing less for you. When you’re thriving, you exude joy. Your light shines brightly. You experience deep satisfaction as you seek ways to fulfill your purpose. You’re energized and peaceful all at once. You give freely of yourself and your gifts and you inspire others to to do the same. You know to your core that you are already enough.
