Take a walk

BY lifeworkswhen

I often come across books, affirmations and items that I like, or think add value to my life. I thought it might be fun to share these and perhaps others would like to join in. Sometimes clients will suggest a book, a movie and article and even their own inspirational thought. It is always refreshing to hear another’s perspective on life and what brings happiness or a sense of achievement to the complex lives we lead.

Peak experiences are a well known in the psychology world as a vital part of  our development.  By definition, a peak experience is a moment accompanied by a euphoric mental state often achieved by self-actualizing individuals. The more you have, the more your own personal growth is enhanced. Any time you take delight in something new or look at something old in a new way, you are experiencing a peak experience.  Pay attention to your world, it is full of amazing things.

This week I have been inspired by my Monday walk. I travel the streets and beaches with my good friend as we unravel life’s mysteries and laugh at the absurdity of our lives and the things that happen around us. From friends to family, work and lifestyle, fresh air and some exercise is a perfect start to a hectic week. In this photo, my family pointed out that the shoe laces were not on trend, way too old school and thus I delighted in them!.

Take a walk, breathe out, let your mind drift a little. It’s good for the soul.
