“Life is a dance between making it happen and letting it happen.” – Arianna Huffington
Arianna Huffington’s recent bestseller, Thrive, inspires and encourages readers to live and work in a world of strength and balance that often feels elusive in our non-stop culture. The ubiquity of smart phones and a constantly “on” culture has affected our ability to connect and center ourselves- thus calling for a new way for working women and men to connect back to their innate energy. Millenials, Generation X, and baby boomers face new challenges of managing their work and lives as the two blend together constantly.
At Pitaya Life, we embrace these challenges and we celebrate those who pave the way for us all. Following, are our top three picks from Arianna Huffington’s ways to truly thrive.
1. Move your Body
Studies have shown time and time again, that exercise not only makes us happier people, but it also increases the brain function we expend on our work tasks as well. If you want to be happier, healthier, more productive, and make better decisions- get that body moving!
Simply setting aside ten minutes in the morning to focus your energy on your breath as you gently bring your thoughts to whatever it is you want to manifest in your life is a fantastic practice that can’t be duplicated anyplace else.
3. Start a gratitude list.
Reminding ourselves of the things we’re grateful, is a gentle way to bring us back to the present moment and shine some light on the things we’ve achieved and the blessings surrounding us. All too often, the next promotion or big dream can overshadow our current state to the point where we forget how far you’ve come in the first place. Listing the things you’re grateful for- even if it’s just two or three- is a fantastic way to get in touch with all the goodness in your life.
