Whether it’s reaching a high and experiencing a surge of endorphins at the end of running, raising money for charity, organising an event for friends, fishing, rambling or simply getting your hands dirty as you plant up your Spring tubs, doing what you love has so many health benefits.
Reduction in stress and anxiety, emotional and physical health improvement, increased self esteem and a more positive attitude are the only side effects of doing more of what you love…it makes sense, yes?
- When was the last time you made time for you to do whatever you wanted without the need for anyone elses approval, permission or judgement?
- How often do you meet up with your best friends for those all important girly chats and hugs or for an evening of boys banter over a pint or a round of golf?
- What sets your heart alight, is it creating some artwork, singing, amateur dramatics, writing prose, dancing or something else and when was the last time you did that?
Doing what you love may or may not cost money.
Most of the things I love are free such as walking in nature, watching my friends children play, writing, digging in the garden, spending time with friends over a cuppa or simply watching the sky. There is so much you can do to increase daily happiness when you make time for it.
January is a classic for New Year’s Resolutions, though I like to set new goals for myself in the Spring. Perhaps you’d care to join me in doing more of what you love?
Spring is a time of new birth, new beginnings, a time for flourishing, living and loving.
What can you do today that your future self will thank you for?
Dance like nobody’s watching
Love like you’ve never been hurt
Sing like nobody’s listening
Live like heaven on earth
Verse by William Perky
If you need more positivity in your life and want to say yes to you, you might like to invest in yourself and make the rest of your life the best of your life right here
