"Live your best life-" Four simple words, made famous by Oprah Winfrey give a single instruction to follow for happiness and success. While the quote is priceless in it's meaning and simplicity, it's an instruction many don't know how to follow. This article is written to help you start living your best life today.
1. Find Your Purpose. This is perhaps one of the hardest steps to living your best life, and many people take their whole life to find their purpose. A lot of people even die without ever finding it, but it is absolutely essential to living life to the fullest. Think about a talent that you were born with, something that you enjoy doing and you feel would benefit the world by doing.
2. Be mindful. One of the greatest sources of many people's stress is the fact that even when they are doing something completely unrelated, their mind wanders to a place of dread, fear, or some other sort of stress. Keep your head in the present moment and enjoy every second. Life is way too short to waste worrying about a problem that you've likely blown way out of proportion.
3.Be spiritual. This does not necessarily mean to be religious. A spiritual person is one who walks his own path to find truth and connect with his/her source/God. Forming your own philosophy isn't always the easiest way, but in the long run is worth it.
4.Be positive. This is another one of the essential steps because everything is as you perceive it. Even the most dreadful of situations can take a turn with a positive attitude. Instead of thinking "I have to sit in traffic," think "I get to sit in traffic."
5.Seize the Day. You only have up to a hundred years in your life. In contrast to the infinite past and infinite future, that's a flash in time. Make the most of every second.
