You probably know that our lovely city has been designated as a Blue Zone place. It’s a really good thing as people in blue zones live longer and better than others. Annie has taken the following message from the Blue Zone web page and claims absolutely no ownership. It makes for good reading and for a better life. Perhaps you would like to sign up for a free workshop, too.
“What’s your reason to get out of bed every morning? Studies show that people with a clear goal in life, or something to wake up for every morning, live longer and stay mentally sharper than those who don’t. Your sense of purpose can come from something as simple as watching your children or grandchildren grow up, being engaged in a job or a hobby that gives you a sense of fulfillment, or learning something new. Ready to start fulfilling your life purpose? Sign up to attend a free Purpose Workshop. Just click on the following graphic to get to the sign up web site.
When we use our time – and our passions and talents – on things that are truly important to us, we have found purpose. Ready to start fulfilling your life purpose? Here are a few tips to help you get started:
- Attend a Purpose Workshop. Find a free Purpose Workshop in your area.
- Gifts + Passion + Environment = Purpose. If you are using your gifts to do something that you feel passionate about in an environment that is a good fit for you, you are living your purpose.
- Create a personal mission statement. Assess where you are and where you want to be and keep a journal to jot down your thoughts along the way.
- Focus on your strengths. Using your talents and strengths will make you feel happy and help you feel valuable to yourself and others.
- Listen to your heart. If you hate something – stop doing it. Get educated, get creative and start doing what you love. Life is too short to be miserable. What do you love to do?
- Learn something new. A new activity can give you purpose too. Try something that will “exercise” your brain – like learning a musical instrument or a new language.”
