12 Steps toThrive

Step 1: Get 30 minutes more sleep tonight. “My single most effective step for being effective, productive and creative is getting enough sleep.”

Step 2: Move your body. “Physical activity is an incredibly powerful component of our overall well-being,”

Step 3: Meditate. “Onward, upward and inward.”

Step 4: Listen to your inner wisdom & Let go of what you no longer need. “When we really connect to that place of wisdom and strength and understanding in us, everything becomes easier.”

Step 5: Start a gratitude list. “Living in a state of gratitude is the gateway to grace.”

Step 6: Each night turn off your devices & gently escort them out of your bedroom. “Disconnecting from our technology to reconnect with ourselves is absolutely essential for wisdom.”

Step 7: Focus on the rising and falling of your breath for 10 seconds whenever you are stressed. “The soul is who I am, the soul is who you are and it is one breath away.”

Step 8: Pick an Image that ignites the joy in you. “Joy is a fuel for creativity.”

Step 9: Forgive yourself for any judgment you are holding against yourself. “To move beyond our worries, anxieties and negative fantasies, we need to forgive ourselves when we are not the best we can be. And then it becomes easier to forgive others.”

Step 10: Make small gestures of kindness and giving a habit and pay attention to how this affects your mind, emotions, body. “The happiest people are the most giving people.”

Step 11: Make a personal connection to people you might normally take for granted, this will make you feel more alive and reconnected.”Restore connection is not just for devices, it is for people too.”

Step 12: Use a skill or a talent you have to help someone benefit from it. “Giving and service mark the path to a world in which we are no longer strangers and alone, but members of a vast yet tightly knit family.”

“Life is a dance between making it happen and letting it happen” A. Huff
