Living Life Out Loud!

How’s your health these days? Do you have lots of energy? When you wake up estandingach morning do you look forward to the day ahead?

As a professional speaker helping people to excel in today’s stressful world, I’m booked alot within the healthcare industry and there are some common denominators worth noting in people living vibrant healthy lives. My happy self included.
1. Positive attitude
Blah, blah, blah…we’ve all heard this a gazillion times but the truth is everything starts in the mind. Did you know that being open to learn new things can keep you young? (and it’s cheaper than a face lift)
Last week I spoke to a ‘mature’ group ranging from age 70 – 95 years old that blew me away with their zest for life and the energy of a 40 year old. Most of them knew how to email because they’d attended computer classes, some were absent ‘coz they’re still globe trotting, others were taking courses at the local university and all of them were living life out loud.
Awesome attitudes. Awesome place (The Buckingham Houston, Texas)
2. Pursue your passion
Is there something you’d love to do but think you don’t have time? Think again. Time is running out and ahem, you’re not getting any younger. I didn’t think I had time to play tennis in between speaking, writing, marketing, playing piano, volunteering and socializing. Now I’m totally addicted to the game, playing five times/week looking and feeling better than ever. In my audience last week were people who paint amazing artwork, swim every day, travel, raise trees, play poker and are excited about life. How about you?
3. People
Living a happy healthy life takes more than just you. Social interaction with other people keeps your mind active and your spirits up. Isolation can lead to depression and a miriad of other illnesses.
The group last week were a great example of how people flourish with friends to talk to.
My life is blessed with wonderful people and one in particular that I call my everyday friend. Talking to her about victories, challenges and plain ol’ scoop takes the stress out of my day and gives me a innate feeling of peace knowing someone out there cares (such is the thinking of a single gal whose Prince has yet to ask for directions to her door)
Living life out loud doesn’t cost a large fortune. It takes a small change of mind.
