The New Year gets most people reflective - on the past and on the future, how far we've come and what we may want to experience or do differently in the coming year. Instead of talking about New Year's Resolutions, let's think about what motivates us, energizes us, and spurs us on to be INTENTIONAL towards our goals and dreams! Here at Inspiring Vitality, I've already embarked on my new theme of Intentional Living and Longevity! This applies to facets of life both small and large - all the regular daily choices that add up to be the months and years of life, and also the milestone events and opportunities.
My favorite two motivators and energizers are shared experiences and music! In 2024, I'll be placing a more intentional focus on both of these areas, which makes me SMILE! Doesn't that sound better than "resolutions" which makes me think of white knuckles!
Whenever I've got something I'm passionate about or really want to achieve, going it alone is not my strategy of choice. Sure, I might have lots to do towards a goal on my own, but touchpoints with other humans keep me going. I find incredible support and motivation through shared experiences, shared challenges, and shared victories. Camaraderie can feel magical! Team sports, group exercise classes, study groups in college, and even...FREE FACEBOOK GROUPS!
Have you heard the news? I started a brand new free Facebook (TM) group for women called (of course) Intentional Living & Longevity: Forever Fitness for Agile, Adventurous Aging! This group is specifically for women who want to find inspiration and camaraderie for a strong body, sharp brain, and endless energy. Together, we are working to defy the typical age-related declines and stereotypes. Read more about it here, or jump right to the FB page here. We'd love to have you!
Music can boost mood, reduce anxiety, make it easier to finish tasks, motivate us during exercise, help us celebrate, lift our spirits, and get us up out of our chairs - to literally MOVE! How does that saying go..."music provides the soundtrack of our lives"? It can conjure up special memories and elicit great emotion. I've been flagging songs that have a Carpe Diem theme, creating my own little inspiration playlist. You can check it out on Spotify and I'll keep adding to it. You can also create your own!
Meet Badger, my four-month-old cavapoo. He is precious and his cuddles can make stress melt away. He's become my mischievous workout buddy-motivator!
