A happy and healthy spirit can be the difference in having a bad or a good day. The decision to cleanse your spirit is mental, but doing this requires daily physical action. Understand what your spirituality is, how much it means to you, and the direction you desire it to go in. Implement these steps into your daily process and enjoy their benefits.
1. Pray or meditate in solitude. There’s nothing closer to moving mountains than feeling the sensation of meditation’s impact moving through your body. Some people set up areas in their home specifically for this purpose, while others pray or meditate during showers or driving to work. Regardless of how you can experience your own session, it’s essential to developing your spirit and enjoying a more positive life. Be as specific as possible in your prayers; be thankful; be of service to others.
2. Read positive things daily. Sites like beliefnet provide inspiration and tips on becoming a happier person. Reading uplifting things, especially in the morning before leaving home, or in the midst of a storm, can change your mindset and how you react to the situation. You are what you read!
3. Go to sleep & wake early. Sleep energizes and recharges us for the next day. Our minds are renewed during sleep and at best when we awaken early. Turn the computer off and rest.
4. Love others. Give to others what you want in return. If you seek love, give love and it will come back to you tenfold!
5. Congregate around other positive or spiritual people. Just like “You are what you read (or eat)”, you are also who you hang around the most. If your friends aren’t yielding positivity in your life, determine how much longer you’re going to allow them not too. You deserve happiness and kind words from people you love.
6. Eat healthy. What you eat determines how you view yourself and how you feel. Foods high in sugar and carbs are gratifying initially, but within a few hours, can make you feel tired while healthy foods do the opposite. Reap healthy foods benefits like boosting your energy, hydration, nutrients, oxygen and looking and feeling better overall. Sites like Eating Well gives recipes and benefits of eating healthy, while others like Live Your Life Well discuss in part how lack of healthy food and eating patterns affect our moods and trigger mental health. When it comes to food, think longevity and put yourself first. It won’t hurt to accompany daily activity, either.
