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.
PRACTICE GRATITUDEEven if you think of just 3 things each day that you are grateful for. Trust me, it actually becomes easy.
- 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
SAY “THANK YOU” FOR THE SIMPLE THINGS IN LIFEIt 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 FRIENDNo, 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.
