Start Living Your Best Life Today
We’ve all had days when we feel completely unmotivated and just embody the feeling of blah. I’m sure (if you’re like me) you’ve wondered, what can I do to escape this funk? How can you stop feeling this way and start living your best life today?
Today, I’m sharing 4 things I do to live my best life. Before you can change the direction you’re headed, you have to acknowledge where you’re at. How would you describe how you currently feel? What led to it? Challenge yourself to find the best description for exactly what you are feeling. Next, accept that it’s OK to feel how you feel and start living your best life today.
Then, decide how you want to feel. Come up with a solid phrase or sentence and actionable plan.
Now that you have put into words how you feel and why, accepted that it’s totally normal to feel how you feel, and you know how you want to feel – it’s time to take action!
There are numerous ways to boost your immune system, calm your nervous system and increase your physical and mental wellness.
1. Tell someone you love them
Call your mom. Call your sister or your brother. Text your best friend. Telephone a loved one to say I love you.
This will not only make you feel great and be great for your health, it will also brighten another person’s day. And if there’s no one in your life right that you feel like saying this to, stand in front of your mirror and tel yourself!
2. Let the sun hit your face
Another simple one but so many people don’t take the time to see the sun! Make it a point to breathe fresh air, look at a tree, feel the sun on your skin, or even go for a walk. Some of the health benefits of spending time outside include lowering your blood pressure and reducing stress, improving your mood, improving focus, healing faster and aging gracefully.
3. Breathe Deeply
This is number one for a reason. It is so freaking easy and oh so effective. You can do it anywhere at any time. It literally changes you from the inside out! Here is a very simple breathing practice:
Breathe at a rate of 5 full breaths per minute. You can achieve this rate by inhaling and exhaling for a count of 5.
Inhale for a count of 5.
Exhale for a count of 5.
Continue this breathing pattern for at least a few minutes.
4. Move around once every hour
Our bodies are built to move around and do things. Moving for 3 minutes every hour can help you feel your best. Some of the health benefits include increased energy, a clearer mind, improved mood, higher metabolism, increased blog flow and improved posture.
Such a small thing to do, with big health impacts!
