Living a life with more purpose starts with showing up and being present-in the moment. Actively choosing to participate in the NOW! You will never get the moment back, so why not enjoy it and soak it all in?
Stop and smell the flowers. Commit to being on purpose everyday, in every way.
Living a life with more purpose is possible...here is a simple 5 step method that you can implement everyday!
1. Be Intentional
With everything that you do, in all aspects of your life:
Setting intentions is powerful. It can even help to hold yourself accountable.
I will go to church on Sundays
I will have less screen time and play with the kids
I will choose to be happy everyday
I will commit and I will NOT commit (we need to learn to say NO sometimes!)
I will work hard, work smart and give it my all, everyday
2. Keep a Gratitude Journal
This may not be for everyone, but writing down the little things that we are grateful for everyday really puts things into perspective. Being thankful and grateful is a mindset that we need to have daily-not just around the holidays. By keeping a gratitude journal, you really get an appreciation for every part of your life.
3. READ more
Read anything.Never stop learning.I like to read self help books, business books, fictional stories...anything....just keep reading-it is a nice escape but also great for keeping you sharp!
4. Give Back
Anyway that you can. It is proven to be good for you too!
Time- Volunteering with local charities, animal shelter, non profit events
Financially- donate to causes that are near and dear to your heart
Donating items- clean out toys, clothes, blankets and donate them
