How to enjoy life

How to enjoy life, a basic guide written especially for you.

www.nakedwildandfree.comBe grateful;

Gratitude is the biggest part of a life well lived. We need to be grateful for all the things we have now and stop living in a mind of lack or thinking when I am rich/have a bigger house/fall in love etc I will be happy and grateful.

When I wake up in the morning I am thankful I am alive, I am grateful I am breathing – how amazing are our lungs!. I am grateful for the warm bed and cosy blankets that have supported me all night, think of all the homeless people who last night slept outside in the cold. I am grateful for my feet and legs which take me to the bathroom, imagine how many amputees would give anything to walk again with ease!. I am grateful for my bladder that is has held my urine all night, think of all the folks who are incontinent. I am grateful for the awesome plumbing and toilet I am using, how miraculous that we have indoor toilets that actually flush our waste away. I am grateful for the hot water coming out of a tap, think of all those people who walk miles each day to collect water, or those who have to drink water from puddles and in contaminated rivers. I smile at myself in the mirror and am thankful I love myself, I am grateful for my hair, my face and my freckles that make me different from anyone else, how amazing that every single one of us is totally unique.

All of this gratitude and I haven’t even made it downstairs yet. So there is always something, right now you can be thankful for.

Look around you, what are you grateful for?

Start a gratitude journal and spend a few moments each day listing things you are grateful for. If you write 10 things a day that you are grateful for, that’s 70 things by the end of the week, 3,640 each year, if you did that for 20

years you would have 72,800 things to be grateful for!

January detox honesty special

Day 1 of bettering my health. (detox starts here)

We are ovo-vegetarians, no meat/fish, we eat our chickens eggs and honey from the allotment. No dairy, ( although when we stayed in a hotel we ate croissants for breakfast, so yummy but so wrong)

We used to be no gluten too but that slipped, (we love pastry and bread too much, sometimes make our own gluten free bread but this depends on being organised and having enough eggs and making puffed pastry from gluten free flour is almost impossible)

We have no toxic chemicals in our house or in our body/bath products ( we are really strict about this and have travelled miles for a decent bar of soap) we have come a long way in 5 years, stopping smoking, no drinking alcohol, no caffeine but we have gone no further. We have talked about how tried we feel and how Tom has aches and is cold a lot of the time, I have a bad lower back and hold onto weight around my middle. We realised we need to move up to the next level of health and wellbeing or its going to be a slippery slope of danish pastries and slobbing in front of the TV.
