5 Simple Ways To Create A Life You THRIVE in

Wondering how to thrive in life? Well, it’s actually simple. 


The difference between a success story and a dreamer can be summed up easily: action. You simply can’t change your life without action. 


If you aspire to have a life in which you thrive (rather than merely survive), there are small, simple, and powerful steps you can take in the direction of your dreams. 


Make a conscious choice to shift your awareness away from a powerless victim to a person that is holding themselves accountable for the life they are designing. Like any other thing you are learning, it takes practice.

Begin by fully absorbing the idea that you are designing your moments, just like you are the energy moving your body through yoga poses on your mat. 


You can use your yoga practice as a mirror for how to live your life. This simple shift in awareness that it is up to you to be the designer of your day is incredibly powerful. Here’s the good news: it’s simpler than you think.



You Simply Can't Change Your Life Without Action

Wondering How to THRIVE? Use These 5 Tips to Change Your Life for the Better:

1. Make Your Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual Wellbeing Your Top Priority


Creating an optimum life balance is a healthy goal and the only way to achieve that is to place your needs, goals, and life design first. 


Placing others needs before your own might appear to be heroic, but the directive to “secure your own mask first” is great advice so then you can better take care of others. 

This is your one great life. Be accountable to yourself for designing it in a manner of your choosing.

2. Focus On Setting and Accomplishing One Attainable Goal at a Time


Write down one attainable goal for this year. Most people in yoga are “working on” a certain posture. 


Just like you envision how it will look and feel when you move into this pose in a way that excites you, yoga (and life) requires time and reflection. You need to cultivate vision and perspective. 


Your best vision blossoms from your dreams, hopes, hard work, and aspirations. It should feel exciting. It should resonate with your values and ideas, and will generate energy and enthusiasm to help strengthen your commitment to explore the possibilities of your life.

3. Embrace Your Individuality


You, unique and perfect as you are you, will never happen again. What are you going to do with that? The secret to how to thrive is to embrace just that!


Celebrate and acknowledge that you have something that only you were meant to do and share. Helping someone else in the process will only make it all the sweeter. If you haven’t yet figured out what that is, what are you waiting for? 


Use yoga as a tool to help you with self-awareness. Hire a life coach. Hire a therapist. Do whatever it takes. Create a team of people who help you design your one amazing life if that’s what it takes to manifest the life of your dreams. 


You deserve it. We all do.

4. Surround Yourself With People Who Lift You Up


Life is short. You deserve wonderful, healthy, and empowering people in your life. Get rid of the toxic emotional vampires. Trust your instincts. 


Healthy relationships are connections based on mutual respect, trust, honesty, support, equality, and a sense of playfulness/fondness (to name a few). Evaluate who/when/why. Eliminate anyone you need to.

5. Keep Moving Forward


If you want to change your life and thrive, keep moving forward!


Embrace change. Grow. Dream big. Turn wounds into wisdom. Get help if you need to. Heal and move forward. Dwell in gratitude. Keep a gratitude journal if you need a reminder. Take risks. Make mistakes. Forgive. Love. 


Gratitude journals are powerful! 

The Secret to How to Thrive: Change Your Life With Action!


This grand adventure of life is being created by you. Life is not simply happening to you. You are manifesting it. 


Once you accept accountability, try and focus on one of the above for a week. Then add another, and another. 


Before long, the energy of a whole new shift in awareness and behaviors will propel you into unlimited potential. And that is how to thrive in life!
