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!

We all like positivity quotes right?

Well here are 5 feel good Friday mantras to get you through the weekend:

1. When I do good, I feel good. When I do bad, I feel bad. That’s my religion. Abraham Lincoln

2. Giving back, doing motivational speeches and stuff like that, that’s always made me feel good. If you repeatedly go out there, and you are the change that you want to see, then that’s what you are. Keke Palmer

4. Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.  Mahatma Ghandi

5. The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.  Oprah Winfrey
