3 Reasons to Do What You Love to Do

Do What You Love

It isn’t easy to learn or discover what you want to do in this life. However, discovering what you love to do is part of the fun. Once you discover your passion, it can be fulfilling. It truly makes you feel alive. Unfortunately, many people live dissatisfied with their lives because they either felt pressured or obligated to follow another path.

Then there are always the objections or the excuses. It could be either not having enough time, financing, or you don’t believe it will lead to anything. The reality is that our passions don’t need to be our careers. It can be a hobby or a stress reliever for our daily routines. These objects are the only thing that is stopping you from doing what you love to do. There is always a way.

The biggest concern among older adults concerned living a life of regret. It’s never too late to pursue your real passion. In consideration, most adults fear regret more than they fear death. The sensation of regret can leave someone helpless especially in a life that is too short to think of what could have been.

I’ll give you three reasons today why should follow what you love to do.

  1. People who do what they love are said to live longer and more satisfied lives.
  2. You feel more fulfilled.
  3. You’ll inspire others to do the same.

If you have medical limitations that prevent you from doing your passions, there is help out there. For those of us who need additional guidance, there are home care agencies that assist in giving us more independence and care during times of need.

The benefits of exercise are endless. A simple walk of twenty minutes per day can increase a person’s mood and alleviate pain. Regular movements maintain flexibility of your joints and body. The best type of exercises are low -impact workouts like swimming, walking, or aerobics.

Massage Therapy

The Arthritis Foundation suggests regular massaging with arthritic joints. A massage releases and produces certain hormones that reduce pain. Not only does it help reduce physical pain, but mental anxiety too. It assists with the stiffness of the muscles while relaxing the mind.

I started using Calm several months ago when I felt random pains throughout my body. After struggling with anxiety and stress, I realized that I needed a way to calm my mind. It is the rave for 2019. You may have heard about meditation. With the thousands of phone apps available, meditation doesn’t take more than 5 to 10 minutes. It can be done at the leisure of your time too.
