Improving Your Life: Step 1 - Relax!

For the next few weeks I will be posting some steps I think are necessary to improve your life. Take the journey with me and give me your feedback. Let's build a strategy we can all use to improve our life and the lives of everyone around us!

Step 1 - Relax!

All of us have stories to tell. Some are exciting and full of progress. However, some of us struggle to understand what's going wrong. These posts will be an attempt to facilitate a conversation about progress. We need to move forward. I believe we can help each other do just that.

Step one of this process will be one of the hardest. We all have stress, and sometimes our stress is overwhelming. We need to take a step back and relax! Before our journey begins we must have an open mind. Take a second, sit back, and relax. Feelings of anxiety and stress will only prevent you from moving towards your goals.

What are some things that help you relax? What are your coping mechanisms?

    Jun 18 2013: Key points seem to be....

    All things in moderation, balance!

    Stay physically active! Regular exercise

    Have a positive outlook on life!

    I'll also add,

    Be child like and curious, so that you see the world in a fresh and invigorating way.

    Don't be afraid to ask why?

    In life take a different path to open new doors and opportunities and so re-invent yourself.

    Ask questions and challenge the status quo'

    Rise above lifes challenges and be strong, never, ever give up! Picture the frog being eaten by a stork but the frog has it's hands around the throat of the stork strangulating it!

    Leave the world in a better place than you found it! : D
