Living It

The BEST Way for Your Whole Well Being

Jonathan Fields is the author of How to Live a Good Life: Soulful Stories, Surprising Science, and Pratical Wisdom. I like his candidness of moving through our lives on “autopilot busyness”. All those “dis” words we have and use in our vocabulary . . . disconnected, disengaged, dissatisfied.

Are we going through the motions to get through the daily grind? Do we have the knowledge and tools? Do we have the mindset and support? To live the good life!

Moving . . .

In my own mind I am thinking on my feet while I am truly tripping over my own two feet! I do not come from a place of grace or patience at times. I know I wish some days I could shift and adapt with more ease. I do need to stay in charge and tap into my strengths. I do need to do what works best for me too!

  • How do you live the talk you tell yourself?

What does a life well lived really mean to each and every one of us?

  • It is practice and progress.
  • It is passion and pursuit.
  • It is practical and you just be, go and do each and every day.

At times you know how and where to begin and other times you do not! Sometimes you have to hope, believe and trust in yourself. To have faith. To go with your instinct. To release and let go, especially in what you have no control over! 

  • How does one live life with direction and purpose?

At times you have to test the waters! To dip a big toe in. To wade in. To just go for it and jump in!

Testing . . .

At times there is going to be challenges, uncertainty and the fear of the unknown! You have to weigh the potential along with the risks. There is also achievement and success. You have to create and innovate to find what you love to do and truly discover your passions! 

  • How does one live life with action and impact?

Get curious and just grab life and live it! Embrace the life lessons and opportunities to develop, to experience growth and gain life experiences. Ask for what you need and want as well as dream and desire. Lean in with love to support yourself and your greatest someones. Everything you discover can be actionable and through the experience validates impact and meaning in living your life!

Life is like an exploration where you find your path to discover the gifts and treasures while journeying along!  Communicate, interact and engage. Cultivate, contribute and do your best. Love and be love and learn to share that love with others. Each day is a new start!

Does a Body GOOD!

I enjoy working out and some of the pleasure of working out comes from being able to stretch out my body, especially releasing the tension and stress!

I do warm up before working out! I do not stretch out when my body is cold though. I am currently recovering from an injury and have to be careful with bending from the waist. Stretching helps me in getting back my overall range of motion, especially with my joints. Stretching also helps increase the blood flow to my muscles, which has been so helpful in my healing process. I am slowly getting back my flexibility and being able to move more freely. I will never take for granted what my body can do for me in living my life!

I am learning that I need to give my body the time it needs to recover from a workout! I am the type of person who is sore (a good soreness too) the second day after a workout. I either work out a different part of my body the next day or wait until after that second day before working out again. I also stretch out during my total body workout too. My body is responding in a good way and changing for the better too!

I am discovering my comfort levels when it comes to stretching out too!


  • DOES NOT MEAN PAIN, so STOP and then start again and find that comfortable point.
  • DOES NOT MEAN holding the stretch for longer than you can stand it, so hold it for what you can and hold in a gentle place.
  • DOES MEAN stretching both side of your body to keep everything balanced and aligned.
  • DOES MEAN a gradual process, so take your time in stretching out and your body will respond by improving over time.
  • GOOD for the body and mind.
  • REMEMBER to stretch throughout the day, especially if you sit or stand for long periods of time.

Here’s to Getting a Good S-T-R-E-T-C-H On!!!
