Are You Ready To Take Back Control Of Your Life?
Do you want to live life to the full, without the stress and overwhelm?

So often we put everyone else’s needs ahead of ours, to the detriment of our own physical and emotional well-being.
So, how do we step back and start enjoying the simple things in life?
Already, many of you will be saying “but I don’t have time for that”!
Well, if you are always exhausted, burnt out and ill then how can you give your all to those around you? If you go about your daily life weighed down by constant stress how can you live a successful, productive and happy life? How will you live a Passionate Life and embrace those simple moments?
If you scale back and learn to appreciate the simple things in life, you will feel invigorated, energized and better equipped to deal with life. You will be able to have your Passionate Life and so much more!
Accept What You Can’t Change And Adapt
There will always be things that no matter what you do you simply cannot change. What you can control is your attitude toward it. You can choose to let it get you down, to be miserable. Or you can laugh and look on the bright side.
Start Your Day With Your Favourite Music
Throw something upbeat and fun on and have a little sing-along or a groove. It helps set the tone for your day. Start it off with a smile on your face and you will face the day feeling more buoyant and energised. It’s all about enjoying and embracing the simple things.
Be Present And In The Moment
Do not think about what has already happened, don’t stress about the future, and focus on being in the here and now.
Take a breath, picture all those worries as a black cloud and breathe them all away! Take another deep breath and focus on the smells around you. Is it fresh-cut grass? Flowers? Rain on the trees? What can you hear?
By bringing your focus to the here and now your worries will lessen, helping you to enjoy those simple moments.
Get Out Into Nature
Take a walk in the great outdoors, or simply go outside and soak up some nature. Bask in the sun on your skin, the birds singing, and the breeze in the trees.
Nature can help to ground you, reduce overwhelm and restore peace. Reconnecting with nature and embracing the simple things can help you begin to notice the small joyous things in life.
Take Your Time Over Your Morning Coffee Or Tea
We live in such a busy time, always rushing and racing from one thing to another. So in the morning when you have that first cup of tea or coffee, take a few minutes to just sit and enjoy it. Don’t drink it while trying to stack the dishwasher, throw laundry on, make breakfast or in the car. Sit and actually enjoy it. Even if you have to get up a bit earlier than usual. Taking your time over that first cup in the morning is a fantastic way to enjoy the simple things in life.
What are the simple things you used to enjoy doing as a child? Before your crazy busy life took over? Think back to that sweet innocence and the pure joy you would find in the sunshine, muddy puddles, a cuddle or a good book!
These are key to living your most Passionate Life, full of joy, happiness and pleasure in the simple things!
