Everyday enjoyment, living according to the values

12 Sep

Amazing how good everyday life can feel. For an outsider, my weekend could have seemed very normal… even boring. But for me, it was just perfect!

A big guidance for my everyday life comes from being clear about my values. I know what are the things I value in my life, and I consciously take time for them. This creates an everyday experience of alignment, meaningfulness and joy.

Some examples where I felt the connection between my highest values and the everyday actions during this weekend:

  • Love & caring – fully being present and enjoying each moment with my wife, be it dinner with wine, coffee break together, cleaning the house together…
  • Friendship & belonging – enjoyable dinner with good friends in a Spanish restaurant. Relishing the easiness of connection and the shared tasty experience.
  • Self development – took time for muscle training, Japanese studies and meditation both on Saturday and Sunday, thus honoring my body, mind and spirit

And the best thing is, that the everyday enjoyment is available for anybody… everyday! It’s as simple as ABC:

  • A = awareness of your values – get clear what is important for you
  • B = build habits – find small things your can do in your everyday life that are in line with your values
  • C = continuously enjoy – start living your habits, and meet the everyday life with joy

Please join me. The world needs people who smile everyday!
