Back in January, I wrote a post about how I came to choose my word for the year (intention), and in that post, I made the rather bold statement that I wanted to . . . live my best life every day.
And ever since then, I've been asking myself . . . what does that even mean???
And ever since then, I've been thinking about it.
Because I don't mean that living my best life is sitting in my garden with a glass of wine and a book, sighing with contentment and thinking about poetry and travel and my next spa treatment. (Although that does sound pretty good.)
Rather, living my best life is more holistic for me.
I want to live my best life not just today -- but every day. Now and into the future.
For me, living my best life = feeling good.
Being healthy, grounded, balanced, challenged, connected, engaged.
Living with a fullness that comes from . . . a holistic sense of being well.
"Wellness is the complete integration of body, mind, and spirit -- the realization that everything we do, think, feel, and believe has an effect on our state of well-being." ---Greg Anderson
Eureka! That's it!
I've discovered that a focus on wellness (in an overall sense) will help me live my best life . . . today and every day.
So. Strap yourselves in. We're going on an adventure.
(I hope you won't mind.)
