20 Little Choices That Lead To A Beautiful Life

“Life, like art, is ever evolving. So take your time, make bold strokes, use brilliant colors — and make your life a masterpiece.”- Jim Rohn

We all differ in our tastes, preferences, expressions, purpose, and callings but each one of us is an artist and our life is our ultimate masterpiece.

What we create is entirely up to us and the quality of our lives comes down to the choices we make in our lives.

Here are 20 little choices that have helped me to create a beautiful life.

1). Commit to living a life that is true to yourself.

If we want to lead a beautiful life, we first need to define what a beautiful life means to us and then build our life around it.
If we don’t do this, we end up living our lives according to other’s standards and that life might look good on paper but it starves our soul.

A few years back I had a good corporate job, a boyfriend, weekend night outs with friends, everything that looks good on paper but something was off.I was not happy, my soul was starving.
It was only after a lot of soul-searching that I defined what a beautiful life means to me and I gathered the courage to build my life around it. I committed to living a life that is true to me and I haven’t been happier. 

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.” – Steve Jobs.

 

2). Enjoy more time in the lap of Nature

In this fast-paced world, we spend 8 – 10 hours in cubicles daily and rest of the time in concrete jungles. We have forgotten our connection with nature and that is only working towards our detriment.

Mother Nature has all that we need to rejuvenate and replenish.

I love to read and write and when I am not doing that, I take long walks in nature or star gaze.
You can choose your favorite nature fix, whether it is going for walks in the nearby parks or trekking in mountains or stargazing or be walking bare feet on green grass but spend more time in the lap of nature.

I bet you will start to notice the difference in your mood pretty quickly.

 

3). Find some quiet time

This one looks simple but it is huge. In today’s age of constant social media consumption and hustle- bustle, we have lost the art of embracing quiet time.
But no matter how busy you are, take out 10-15 minutes of your time daily to meditate or sit in silence.

The benefits will blow your mind.

 

4). Fuel your body with nutritional food

This is a no-brainer. We need to feed our bodies’ nutritional food to keep it functioning at optimal levels.

Stay hydrated, eat more organic food. Detoxify once in a while and cut down on sugar and processed foods.

 

5). Get enough zzz’s.

However, we can ditch our beauty sleep occasionally for night outs and net flix once in a while but missing our sleep on the consistent basis is not a good idea.

Scientists and researchers suggest that an average adult needs around 7 hours of sleep every night for overall well being.

Get more ZZZssss.

 

6). Make love and lots of it

“You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.”
―Gone with the Wind

Make love more often, not only it deepens the bond between you and your partner; it has incredible health benefits also. So, it’s a win-win 

 

7). Move your body

Our bodies are meant to be moved. Choose from your favorite form of exercise, be it yoga, pilates, cardio, swimming, running or any other kind of work out. But take out 30 minutes every day to move your body.

 

8). Follow your gut

We are trained to be more left brain inclined and rely on logic to make all our decisions. But don’t neglect your gut. Our gut is our second brain and it is a reliable source.

Silence your mind and listen to your body. If something feels wrong but you can’t pinpoint exactly why it is your intuition telling you something. Listen to what it has to say.
