In our pursuit of success, we’re often faced with challenges, disappointments, and losses that can make life such a drag depriving us of happiness. But, we can make a conscience decision to live life effortless and take on a free spirited lifestyle. Yes, there are tons of self help books, retreats, therapy and remedies for living a stress free life, but the good news is , we can start right away with these 5 easy breezy steps…
Find your Beach! – This is not to be taken literally, but rather find your zen space. Find a way to mentally escape. Take a walk in the park, an hour of yoga or a soothing cup of tea at your favorite coffee shop. Find a place where you can escape from it all; to think, to meditate and rejuvenate your senses.
Connect spiritually – Find your tribe! They are your kindred spirits. Live in Faith and connect spiritually to a higher being.
Live a little – Be a kid again, even if its just for a moment. Forget about challenges in life; including the never ending goals to be achieved and just take the time to enjoy the moments of life. Be free! Smile, laugh, cry and love from the heart. Even most important, find what makes you happy… A passion!
Letting Go – This is easier said than done, but “weed” out the negative vibes in your life. Whether it’s a relations, job or any situation that weighs you down, gradually find a way to omit negativity. In the free spirited world, we commonly share this statement “Good Vibes Only”. Avoid bad vibes. Stay away from situations that trigger negativity, that saddened you, or drain you mentally and physically.
Rest – Learn to pace yourself, learn to say no, make time for you – yes, you! Sleep in on Sundays or on your rest days. Treat yourself and not only wait to be treated out. Buy yourself that gift you’ve always wanted, book a ticket and escape to your favorite or dream destinations. So many times we put our career, kids, relationships and goals ahead of ourselves. Be well and everything else will follow including goals and achievements.
