My question this month is; Are You Making Your Life Meaningful?
Often we go through life on autopilot—taking the same way to work, sticking to the same routine, and not fully noticing things around us. It is everyone’s goal to find purpose and meaning in life. Here are some simple steps you can take to help make your life more meaningful.
Look at your life and take stock of all the good things. Try to take time each day to be
thankful for all you have, from basic food and shelter to the love of friends and family.
We sometimes forget in our daily struggles to be grateful for our bounty in life.
Vary Your Routine
If you find yourself doing the same things everyday, try to vary your daily life. You will
open your eyes to a new perspective and will avoid the monotony of repetition. This can
be as simple as taking a new way to work, varying your lunch routine, or reading instead
of watching TV or even better take a thirty minute walk around neighborhood or local park. As you make these changes, really pay attention to the world around you, and you may be surprised at how different every day can be.
Live in the Moment
It is easy to get caught up in mulling over the past or planning for the future.
This leaves little time to spend in the here and now. Try to appreciate what you are
doing each moment. Enjoy your family and friends and see the beauty of the little
things in your life. Your appreciation for life will increase as you savor each element
of your day.
Remember there are only seven days in a week and One Day isn’t one of them!
