Discover How Happiness, Fun, and Success Gives You Inner Peace

Having fun, enjoying life is the way you want to live. However, many people live feeling stressed instead of feeling inner peace.  If you are at the point where you have spent too many days not enjoying yourself it’s time to create change. When was the last you took some time off? Switching from my fast paced lifestyle in New York to being on Aruba’s “One Happy Island (my home away from home) was night and day. Making the shift was worth it because I feel the best I’ve felt in ages after returning from a 3-week vacation at the Casa Del Mar Resort with my family and friends.  In case you have never been there, the island of Aruba is only about 21 miles and located in the southern part of the Caribbean Sea. Aruba may be small, but it’s a perfect place to unwind and relax. Don’t let it take years for you to invest in your well-being and have fun and immerse yourself in feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

Relaxation is key if you wish to gain the full benefit from any vacation. Your mind and body need time, peace, and quiet. Once you make the decision and get settled then your mindset is ready to take full advantage of your vacation experience.  Whether on vacation or in life, it’s good to unwind and truly “BE”.  One of my most favorite experiences was taking part at the resort offered the class, Chair Yoga for the second year in a row with an incredible teacher, Gladys M Duarte. I discovered again how this low impact exercise strengthens your body and calms your spirit. It was also a great way to meet people in a fun and relaxing environment. I encourage you to find one in your area, so you can incorporate inner peace and exercise into your life. 

Needless to say, we had a blast. I ended up participating in 9 classes over my vacation. The vibrant Caribbean backdrop didn’t disappoint, my classes took place around beautiful trees near our pool and you could feel the wonderful sea breeze while working through each routine. I’m filled with plenty of fond memories and if you are struggling with stress, anxiety, or find it difficult to relax then I highly recommend chair yoga. By the end of the three weeks, I felt better than when I arrived and filled with a sense of well-being. It was a feeling of renewed peace and tranquility, and one I’d like for you to experience as well.

Some Benefits of Chair Yoga:

  • It’s a great way to relax from head to toe giving you a sense of peace as your mind relaxes.
  • Chair yoga is a quick way to stretch your body and relieve tension. It’s much healthier for you instead of reaching for food to comfort you.
  • It will increase your range of motion by opening your hips, moving your shoulders and neck. It feels so good.
  • Total body benefits as it increases blood circulation and stimulates the elimination of body toxins.
  • Improves balance, posture, flexibility, and mobility of the feet, toes, and hands.

Note- On September 17th Gladys will be here in the states at “NY Fit Fest” in Long Beach, New York, teaching with other world-renowned athletes, leading activities ranging from sunrise yoga, meditation, surfing, dance, health and more.

Life is full of choices. Make your well-being a top priority and plan some quiet time into your life. You’ll find yourself less stressed and it’s good for your overall well-being because you will feel refreshed, relaxed and rejuvenated. Having a ritual to start your day will lead you to more success. Your mindset matters and how you feel determines the actions you take each day. My coach Sheri Kaye Hoff put together a group of expert professionals sharing their ideas for creating a successful mindset. It has helped me to live my life in a proactive manner instead of reacting to all that comes my way. I would like to share and inspire you to create a success ritual now, contact me and we’ll create a plan that will provide you the best outcome for your life. 

 Instead of focusing on problems and what is negative lean into success by establishing new habits. Make the commitment today by living a life filled with health, wealth, and happiness. When you look for solutions, new opportunities, and instill within yourself the desire for something better you will enjoy life. Routines give your life meaning and purpose. Decide today what goals are most important and what you want to achieve. A focused effort for real change can make a difference in your life and the lives of others. All you need is a plan and put in the effort to get you there. 

Here is how I define success.

Simple Practices I Follow for Focus on a Successful Mindset

Writing down what I am grateful for gave me an uplifting feeling to start or end my day.

Having a commitment to exercise at least 4 times a week relaxes my mind, releases tension, frustration and strengthens my body.  I ride my stationary bike for 30 minutes, lift weights or do pushups to motivate and inspire me.

Changing my diet from a regular routine of pizza, Chinese food, white rice and gravy, bagels, fried foods and chips to reducing each one of them one at a time. Approaching food in this manner helped me to create new habits of choosing healthier foods without depriving myself while on my well-being journey.  Instead of a seeing this change as a “diet”, I looked at it as a slow and steady lifestyle change. Framing within my mind in this way helped me to overcome mentality what was keeping me from achieving my permanent weight loss.

Focusing on my personal development and personal growth was and remains my way to success.  Hiring a life coach opened a new world of self-discovery and personal growth to embrace and experience. Getting the support I needed in several areas of my life and having an accountability partner to turn to for guidance, inspired motivated and helped me stay on track.

Going out of my comfort zone and starting a blog gave me the confidence to write my first book which was something I never imagined doing.

For inspiration, I turned to listening to audio recordings of spiritual music, meditation, and courses to keep moving forward as I pursued my dreams.

Be patient and enjoy the journey and dream big.  Keep doing the things you love instead of being worried and filled with fear of what might happen next.   Learn how to create success by taking simple steps that move you forward.  Focus on changing any negative attitude that may linger and push yourself to have a positive winning mindset. The effort will soon turn into a habit that will transform your life. Decide today to create change and improve your well-being by creating a life filled with happiness, success. You’ll discover the brighter side of life while having more fun living the lifestyle you desire.

True happiness involves the full use of one’s power and talents.
John W. Gardner

Have you ever noticed how some days are super busy and other days are quiet and peaceful? If you’re like me those peaceful days can sometimes be few and far between! It can be tough to balance everything and still keep your sanity, especially when it comes to work. Do you have projects that are incomplete and play over and over in your mind leaving you to the point where you feel a little anxious, uncertain and maybe even frustrated to the point of giving up? Wouldn’t it be great if you were relaxed, full of energy and could always feel confident in overcoming what frustrates you? This may sound difficult to attain but you can overcome such roadblocks by remembering why you even started your project in the first place and then replaying over and over in your mind the excitement you felt before all the obstacles came your way. What if I told you that calm, peace and happiness could be yours within those super busy days too? With just a tweak or two to your mindset and in the actions you take you really can have the life you’ve always dreamed of. You just have to be willing do the work that will point you in the right direction.Bonnie Peace

With a little awareness and practice you can change your thoughts by using the power of intention to free yourself from the negativity that is distracting you from the life you desire. When we focus more on the positives, all the negative thoughts and emotions tend to slowly drift away to a state of calm and peace. When you nourish your mind with good thoughts and positive things on a daily basis you can quiet the negative voices you hear in your mind.  This can be achieved by taking action when you notice a negative thought creep in and by changing the thought to a positive one. Doing so will be the start of miraculous changes that will reduce stress, add more peace in your life and surround you with an abundance of happiness going forward.

When you think about your life what is the one thing that makes you feel apprehensive or is holding you back? Are you harboring a past event that still upsets you and figure that this is just how it is? Can you, for a moment, imagine yourself with reduced stress, increased confidence, and living a life of calm instead of a flood of regret or worry? A recent study confirmed that over 95% of what we worry about doesn’t even happen. Think of all the wasted time and attention. What about all the time you spend afraid or ashamed over things you no longer have control over? This is why it’s so important that you learn from these lessons and begin creating good habits and routines that focus on the positives and in what makes life pleasurable. Commit to doing so, and you will receive results that will improve and enhance your overall well-being.

It may not always feel like it but all that you desire is within your reach and you have the power to do what you’ve never imagined possible. You can accomplish your dreams by keeping the ball rolling forward instead of focusing on your past. You will not find answers by turning to food every time uncomfortable emotions kick in or by drowning yourself in work when things get difficult at home. Neither approach will provide the answers you need. A much better choice is to start from within by being gentler with yourself. Yes, it’s a process and it won’t happen overnight. You will have to take small simple steps to change your behavior. It really is a choice to remain positive, and with consistency you can get to a place of feeling peace in your heart, body, and soul. Staying in the positive is worth the effort since nothing beats the pure joy you will create and the benefits you will encounter from a richer more fulfilling life.

Keep in mind that all habits can be changed when you embrace, experience, and enjoy the journey. Once you make new positive habits part of a daily routine they become automatic and ingrained in everything that you do. They begin to feel very natural and soon feel like second nature. You must decide now that you want to create change in your life. Your happiness is important and is an integral part in you successfully doing what you passionately want to do in your life. These simple tips I’m sharing with you can move you closer to happiness by reducing the stress you may be experiencing and by giving you peace like you’ve never had before.

12 Tips To Reducing Stress, More Peace, and Happiness

  • Find your passion. Do what you love to do. Have a big vision with your individual goals that you choose and gives you a feeling of safety. You are a creative being and let your creativity shine.
  • Do less, not more. Focus on the important tasks, and get rid of the rest. You will get more accomplished, your frustration level will be reduced and you have more time for things that give you joy.
  • Choose only what aligns with your overall goals. Remove one item today that you do frequently that is not getting the results you desire,
  • Simplify your finances. Live life on your terms not somebody else’s. Pay cash when you can, reduce debt by paying off high interest credit cards, and spend within your means.
  • Create simple systems. Create well-organized simple systems for your everyday routines, anything you do over and over. Examples: Have a fixed place for your spare keys, bills, and mail.
  • Set goals for 3 months, 6 months and a year. Choose a goal to start working on in the short term that will move you towards your longer-term goal.
  • Focus on one task at a time. Give up multi-tasking. This will ultimately make you more productive and will reduce stress.
  • Take action, even the small action is better than procrastinating and doing nothing. Do your very best. Don’t wait until everything is perfect. Feel the fear, and do it anyway!
  • Give up wanting to being right. Look for a way to understand the other person’s position, to see it from their point of view.
  • Respond instead of react. Control your impulses and raise your awareness to your surroundings. If someone says or does something to you that you don’t like, say and do nothing but consider if what they’ve said has merit. Then count to 10 before you respond. If you don’t have something nice to say, don’t!
  • Be compassionate and be thoughtful of how others feel. Think about what the other person might be going through. Don’t judge them. Remember there are two sides to every story, sometimes even more.
  • Get support. Be held accountable. Find a coach or partner who will support you to on your journey in life.
