Finding zen in a goal focused society
In a society that is obsessed with being better every single day it is easy to get caught up in a life of constantly chasing goals and never stopping and appreciating where we are at right now. Trust me! I am very guilty of this.
Not that long ago I read the book “The Magic”. At first, I was skeptical of what I had to do but I was in a place where so many horrible “things” were happening “to me” that I wanted to find inner peace with the confusion of other’s actions…
Below are some simple tips to help you find your zen in this crazy busy world of ours.
Even if you think of just 3 things each day that you are grateful for. Trust me, it actually becomes easy.
An example can be as simple as:
- I am grateful for my health
- I am grateful for the food I ate today
- I am grateful for the house I live in
Try not to overthink it. Make it simple and then it will be simple for you x
SAY “THANK YOU” FOR THE SIMPLE THINGS IN LIFE
It may sound a little crazy but with my 4:30am starts most days, I wake up saying “thank you”. It starts off my day being grateful to be alive. I say thank you every step I take until I have finished getting ready. I love it. It really sets the mood for the day!
PHONE A FRIEND
No, I’m not talking about calling a friend to help you win that million dollars.
However, surrounding yourself with like minded people that are going to raise you up is essential to keeping the zen in your life. Fill your life with people that matter, that truly love you for who you are.
WRITE DOWN YOUR INTENTIONS
What is it that you truly want out of life? Write it down and read it every single day. The more you focus on what you want, the easier it will come to you.
TAKE TIME TO JUST SIT
Resting your body is just as important as working hard towards your goals. What is your favourite pass time to relax? Read a book, have a nap, watch some trashy TV, workout? Fill each day with a little something that will just fill your happiness cup that little bit more
So there you have it. A simple guide to slow down and smell the roses. Sometimes it’s not all that easy to see the good in life, but when you are only focusing on what is great around you, all the other stuff just melts away.
