Living Happier Goals is Phase II of our Blog! We have spent the last ninety days discussing learning differences my business partner and I experienced ourselves, with others family members and co-workers during our lifetime. We feel this Blog is needed because there are no first-person accounts describing Living On the Autism Spectrum: no one talks honestly about relationships, careers, finances, ability to plan for retirement. No one steps up and speaks with honesty about ALL the circumstances involved. Living on the Autism Spectrum is like having a huge Eight Ball on us that NEVER ROLLS OFF! We think we have written enough on the subject. So, onto the next phase: how we have overcome Living On the Autism Spectrum through our LIVING HAPPIER GOALS.
Our Phase II Blog will include:
Recipes with NO Dieting,
Living a Life with NO Exercising,
Latest Environmental and Design Issues,
General Tips for Wellness,
Making a Healthier Home,
Focusing on our own wellness is THE MOST IMPORTANT THING WE CAN DO FOR OURSELVES. There is no exception to this. In order to be our best selves, we must ALWAYS put our own health first. Remember those instructions every time we fly: put your oxygen masks on first, before your children! This also applies to putting our seat-belts on first which also sets an example for your children and keeps you safe for keeping them safe. We should make safe and nutritious food to keep ourselves healthy: our immune system must be strong enabling us to take care of family members when they are sick. And, the list goes on . . . So, what does WELLNESS mean?
Wellness is new “it” word. Everywhere you go, everything you read WELLNESS is part of the story. But exactly does Wellness mean? Here are a few examples:
- Eating healthy
- Avoiding alcohol
- Avoiding tobacco products
- Avoiding drugs, prescribed or otherwise
- Living in the moment, stress-free
- Living a life in constant movement.
Why are these part of Wellness? Well, it depends on your reasons for still being on this earth.
Are you here to:
- Serve our country
- Raise the next generation
- Build a company
- Make a difference?
WHY ARE YOU HERE, taking up valuable natural resources that are losing their quality, shrinking and becoming more expensive every day?
WHY ARE YOU HERE doing a job, paying bills, providing for yourself or a family but not moving toward goals you once dreamed?
WHY ARE YOU HERE enduring daily aches, pains, weaknesses, frustrations from aging?
WHY ARE YOU HERE?
After sharing stories from Living On the Autism Spectrum, it should now be obvious that we see these differences as BLESSINGS. Take time to re-read any of the links we have shared about Tommy Hilfiger, Sir Richard Branson, and more as they describe how learning differences give them the ability to look at EVERYTHING differently, blessing them with powerful gifts of enhanced innovation, inspiration and creativity.
