How do you experience your daily quality of life currently?
Do you experience moments of joy each day?
Our culture is more sedentary that we ever imagined it would be. Because of desks, computers, cars and smartphones, we are hunched and immobile for more hours in a day than is optimally healthy.
Though our bodies are inactive, our minds are racing – overstimulated with images and information in this digital era.
This combination of under-active bodies and overactive minds has created a desire within many of us to modify the habitual ways in which we live, in order to improve our daily quality of life.
We seek serenity and stamina.
The following are three fundamentals that will help you, unquestioningly, to live more joyfully and improve your quality of life each day.
1. The Best Investment You Will Ever Make Is in Your Own Health
When you possess perfect health, you are perfect potential. Almost anything is possible.
Strangely, most Americans think of themselves as healthier than they actually are (even parents of obese children list their offspring as “healthy” in surveys).
Stellar health is a journey. At all times, we can be happily experimenting with new ways to help ourselves feel and perform even better.
2. The Key to a Joyful Life is Simplicity
Own less stuff. Too many possessions serve as distractions from the aspects of life that matter more to you.
Instead of acquiring clutter, you can celebrate your prosperity by investing in yourself.
Get a massage, see a fitness trainer or take a class. Enrich yourself more with internal experiences and less with material objects.
there will be someone who comes from a background of poverty who is influenced to strong wanting. And the rockets of desire will shoot, and then they will find a way to find vibrational harmony with their desire. They will get into this flow in which material things flow into their life at outrageous abundance. And they will feel brief moments of success as it comes, until they are eventually buried by the cumbersomeness of it, and then the next rocket of desire that is born is: ‘I’m wanting a simpler life.'” —Abraham-Hicks
3. Hope, Enthusiasm and a Positive Inner Dialogue Will Transform Your Experience
The universe has an uncanny way of matching you with the thoughts, feelings, and words that you habitually use.
Whatever you give time, attention, and focus to, you will manifest more of. Negative thoughts will, over time, create negative experiences.
Observe your thoughts, feelings, and words objectively, and challenge yourself to improve their quality. Make a game of it. Pretend that there is an infinite field of energy – intelligent, creative, compassionate and playful – that matches your positive thoughts by sending you positive experiences.
Tips for Improving Your Daily Quality of Life
In the years that I’ve been curating my Longevity Lifestyle website, I’ve been able to recognize some commonalities among the sites’ users. Many are savvy creative-types over 45 who want to trim-up.
More than age, gender or level-of-education, what site users seem to have in common is that they’re becoming interested in what daily changes they might make to help create a lifestyle flowing with joy and robust health.
What each of us is really after is an improvement in the overall quality of life: we want to feel great, look great, and be happier. And we’re smart enough to know that we need to take a reasoned, holistic approach in order to get there.

Podcasts to Inspire and Entertain You on Your Journey
You can access our podcasts on-the-go by using your ear buds and the browser on your smart phone. I listen to podcasts while I code at the computer (part of my job), commute, chop vegetables, workout, make the bed, fold the laundry, shave – you name it. I find them entertaining and they help me make the most of my time:

When we imagine living a better life, we tend to think dramatically. We fantasize about moving to that tropical island or dropping 25 pounds or having the winning lottery ticket.
In reality, life is improved not in one fell-swoop.
Most often, positive permanent changes are made gradually – one day at a time.
