A new year has begun. It’s an opportunity for new beginnings and clean slates. But let’s face it. It’s also a time when you feel pressured to set huge, life-changing goals that are almost impossible to achieve. I want you to feel energized about the new year ahead, not stressed out so soon after it has begun. By ditching unrealistic resolutions and focusing on purposeful actions, you can make 2019 a year of better health, more joy and exciting opportunities.
Purpose is what drives you. It’s what inspires you and keeps you motivated, passionate and engaged with the world around you. It’s the why behind everything you do. But is it important? Does it really impact your ability to live a happy and healthy life? Yes. It is. And it does.
In fact, the role that purpose plays in your life just might be the best indicator of your state of health. Why? Because people with a strong sense of purpose experience less stress, less depression, better mental health and more happiness. Purposeful living can even add years to your life! It can also reduce your risk of:
It’s a big deal. A very big deal.
Each purposeful day you live means better health and wellness and less unrest in your body. It’s my personal belief that less unrest in your body leads to a balanced body that is in harmony, calmer and responds more positively.
Purpose is also pretty magical. Consider the grade school tutor who works with students who desperately need academic help. Remember, your purpose is your why. The tutor helps these students because he or she wants to offer encouragement and make a difference in their lives.
Here’s where it gets magical. The tutor is more than just a grade school tutor. He or she is actively serving as a Health Hero to each child and to himself or herself. The purpose (offering encouragement and making a difference) behind the action (tutoring) creates this beautiful circle of giving and receiving in ways you can’t immediately see or feel. But it’s there, and it’s the key to a life that excites you, energizes you and drives you forward.
Most people don’t stick to their New Year’s resolutions, and there are several reasons why:
No wonder these resolutions don’t stand the test of time!
Enriching your life with purposeful action is easier than you think. You simply have to find your purpose and let it live behind everything you do. Here’s what you need to do and know:
Don’t let unrealistic or trendy resolutions distract you from the things that matter most to you. Use the power of purpose to create sustainable goals that you’re excited to achieve. When you have purpose behind your actions (big or small) you create lifelong habits that enrich your life with better health, positive energy, more happiness and beautiful meaning behind everything you do. Live your purpose, and create a magical new year.

Make healthy living a part of every day.
The light in me honors the light in you. Namaste.
