What is the difference of fulfillment and being satisfied/content? How does one obtain fulfillment? Why is fulfillment important? All reasonable questions that if one doesn’t understand the term fulfillment they would never know.
Do you live a fulfilling life? What is fulfillment? Fulfillment is gaining satisfaction from your actions. Why is this absurd? Because not everyone acts in a fulfilling way. Most of us are conditioned by our environment to accept what is our true reality. Without coming to terms or learning to grasp why we perform the action we incorporate the action into our daily living never resulting in any satisfaction. More often then not these tedious patterns deplete us mentally and physically.
Then why do we do it? Simply because we are unaware.
A lot of individuals are unaware of the truth of how happiness and success is obtained. Some individuals believe success is money, this just isn’t true. Success and happiness is something that’s fashioned through determination and hard work. Success and happiness isn’t gained from a place we arrive at but instead it’s something we pick up along the journey. It comes from embracing the highs and the lows but ultimately being able to control the weathered storm.
Lost in the illusion of what’s right and wrong people have come to the understanding within themselves that material possessions and money is what makes them happy. This corrupted view creates a lot of greed and animosity amongst society. Living with our envy and greed we are conditioned to one-up each other’s belongings. The newest this, the newest that with the end result depleted cash resources and little satisfaction gained. This is why we must come to understand fulfillment and what it means to be happy.
Are you enjoying life? Do take time of out of your day to have fun? Fun is crucial in regards to happiness. We must give ourselves the freedom to act without criticism from our thoughts. So often we are overanalyzing ourselves and being super critical. Stop and smell the roses. Don’t be afraid to take pause breaks. Take a moment to breathe in the beauty of life. Taking a pause break can be extremely beneficial and even heighten our alertness the moment we bring our energy back into our body.
Schedule time to do whatever activities you define as fun. Take all thinking away from the activity and just be. Find your childlike sense of wonder and explore. Consider making a list of all the potential activities you’d like to do someday. Use this as reference. Remember to have always have fun.
Remember to have fun in new and engaging ways. Engaging in the same activities we regard as fun quickly lose their spark of interest if we overdo it. Remember balance is key in all aspects of life. In regards to fun think of moments that would take your breath away whether it is different trips you would like to take, places you’d like to go, or things you’d like to do.
Don’t be afraid to start living the life you always wanted to live.
Is exercising really worth being healthy? How much exercising is necessary to “be healthy”? What other opportunities come with being healthy? How do I start? these are the questions I’ll be answering in this article. A lot of people associate being healthy with being rich or having money. Having money or being rich isn’t really relevant to being healthy. Being healthy is under our own control whether rich or poor. Of course the rich will have access to possible resources the rest of us don’t but ultimately we all need to suffer the same to get to where we want to be.
Essentially being healthy is triumphant when considering quality of life. Having strong health we are better able to take on physical adventures and endure mental turmoil. With better health we are able to embrace and fully enjoy life as it is meant to be.
Neglecting to take care of one self is psychologically destructive. Stress makes its ways into our lives when we begin to live outside of our means. When we start obsessing over material things we forget to manage our basic necessities. We forget about what’s actually important in the long-run and instead begin to live through our senses. With willpower at an all time low our struggles become too much to endure until we find a new means of relieving the stress. Essentially when we neglect to care for ourselves we run the trouble of living the same dopamine loop cycle. So focused on our fixes we spiral so out of control that we are no longer able to manage ourselves. To a point where we no longer love ourselves or anyone else around us. To the point where we begin to blame others and society for our issues. To the point life seems meaningless and you feel hopeless suffocating yourself in your worries.
This is why taking care of you is so important. It’s not about being the best looking person on the planet or having a hulk-like physique. It’s about appreciating who you are and taking control of your life. It’s about knowing you can overcome whatever obstacle whether physical or mental.
Being healthy is about thinking clearly and moving away from negative thoughts. Take control; don’t let negative thoughts influence self-destructive behavior. Learn to move past regret and to live with faith rather than doubt. Take action everyday and see what’s possible. See what you’re capable of. You may (and probably will) accomplish feats you never thought possible.
A healthy lifestyle will impact you emotionally, psychologically and physically. It’s a life-changing transformation and there’s no better time to begin than right now. Remember you don’t have to commit to the gym 2 hours a day, commit to 30 minutes and include exercise in daily life. Incorporate healthy living in your lifestyle choose to walk, bike or roller-blade to work rather than driving. Choose adventurous activities for you and your spouse or family, go kayaking, hiking, or mountain climbing. Spend a night out in the woods. Start living with a sense of adventure and with the best of hope.
It’s never to late to reinvent yourself. Today could be the day it all changed. Remember when you get knocked down it’s never to late to get back up.
