These steps may be simple, but few people walk this path. In fact, if you were to follow an average person around, you will likely find them living in quite the opposite manner. But most average people experience below average health and happiness. You can choose something different.
Normal isn’t always natural
If you want true health, there is no way that you cannot break away from the crowd. Face the fear of being different and you will find the courage to be yourself. The tools of Yoga and Ayurveda will help you reach this. Practice such as kick and float allow you to overcome fear and move a step closer to the divine that resides within you.
Embrace who you are and health will follow
When you embrace your true self and live in the way that you want to live, you feel better and get more out of each day. Your lifestyle may be different from your friends’ and family members’, but your relationships will be stronger and healthier because they are built from a foundation of your truth.
When you follow your path and no one else’s, you no longer have to be at the whim of the latest trend, whether it is the distraction of a new television show or a fixation on an expensive superfood that everyone is adding to their smoothies. You can do what feels fulfilling to you without worrying about what everyone else is doing.
Stop comparing and start living
Whether you’re comparing yourself to your spouse, a friend or someone on television, remember that they are not walking your path, they do not have your karmas and constitution and therefore cannot have the same outcomes in life. If you pay attention to the lower ego, that voice that says you’re not good enough or as capable as the next person, it will trap you in a negative cycle and halt any progression. But you can have freedom from this cycle when you see a different direction.
Joy comes from living according to your heart’s desire. You can either make yourself crazy by wondering what everyone else thinks about your choices or you can use each day as an opportunity to know yourself better and act in accordance. Let go of the comparison and self-doubt and do what feels right in your heart. Life will unfold beautifully.
