In my journey of living a more heart-driven life, I have started to live on purpose. Living a life on purpose means that moment by moment I dive deep into my heart for inspiration and guidance. I’m not saying I succeed always, but I have learned some simple ways to get me back to my center.
I Listen to Soothing and Romantic Music
I recently purchased some divine, gentle music on Amazon. There are tracks of water flowing and overall peaceful, calming music. I wanted something that could play to my senses and soul while I worked, but not overwhelm or disturb me that I couldn’t work. These tracks are perfect!
I also listen to a lot of slow, romantic songs. Sometimes, the songs are deeply emotional. Other times, there is a strong element of sensuality. It all just depends on my mood. I find it allows me to connect to my own femininity, sensuality, and heart.
I Write in My Gratitude Journal
I have a journal where I jot down things I’m thankful for. I try to write in it daily, but truthfully, it doesn’t always happen. Sometimes, I write every other day or a week later. I don’t push myself, whenever I have the time.
Set Aside Time for Me to Relax
This one is important. I don’t fill all my time up now with activity or action. I set aside time for me to listen to music, read, watch an episode of The Modern Family, or just nap. Or make a delicious smoothie!
Get off the Computer and Just Be
I limit my time on my computer and especially social media. Being online and checking my Facebook does not mean I’m always using my time efficiently. I want to get out there and live my life!
Read Novels and Blogs
I love reading stories and take time out to read a novel. I also read a lot of blogs by life coaches. I love reading about new ways to still the mind or connecting to my heart.
Allocate Creation Time
I also allocate specific time so I can create! I can create a new article, plot for a new novel, or new ideas in general. I’ll light some candles and get into brainstorming and creation mode at my apartment. Other times, I’ll head to a coffee shop to do it.
