1. Take time to ponder the important questions like: “What really matters most of all in life; what do I want to have achieved in the end; how do I want to feel when I look back, and review the kind of life that I have lived?”
2. Make time for solitude and silence. Filling every minute makes it hard to listen to our intuition, or that inner guiding voice.
3. Seek out people who inspire you to live well – and then consciously learn what you can from them.
4. Consciously monitor your progress. It is easy to slip back into unproductive habits. Hence, we need to be committed to sticking to our plan. If it helps, be accountsble to a friend, or at least write down your goals so you can check how you’re progressing.
5. Accept that struggles, disappointments and setbacks will always be part of your experience. There will be times when you are tempted to give up and stop trying … but choosing to keep going will lead you to your dreams.
“No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”—Nelson Mandela (via karimbenzemaa)
“The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.”—Thomas Merton (via thatkindofwoman)
I started doing yoga almost 4 months ago, I'm really fascinated by the crow pose, but it feels like it's impossible for me to ever be able to do it. A few tips/ encouraging words?
Crow pose is one that I can actually do but my form isn’t great yet. I’d say practice practice practice, which works in regards to pretty much everything. There is a great video I watched on how to transition into crow pose which is, of course, done by Tara Stiles whom I fucking love. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CTmO5VK0DpE) I watched it, tried it, and did it. I use the first method she shows when I do mine. Let me know how it goes for you! & thanks for the zucchini suggestion :]
even though I am a relentless mocker of the paleo diet I kind of want to try it out but how the FUCK is someone supposed to not eat cheese, beans or bread I don’t get it those are my 3 main food groups
