There is power in living lightly, if you struggle with perfectionism, you are only going to drown in the sea of all there is to accomplish. When your mind is more playful, you’re more open to the unexpected things that happen in all of our lives. We allow our minds to be open and then more ideas come in. You can plan anything in advance but in some cases that can actually harden you and make you weaker when things don’t go as planned.
- Routinely doing the same actions can dull our experiences to other options in life.
- Keeping flexible control of our emotions, acknowledging them and holding them lightly will help us experience them better.
- Adding new items and actions to our routines can help keep our minds interesting and spontaneous.
“We traditionally think of spontaneity as something we can see or experience—a spur-of-the-moment vacation, an out-of-the-blue phone call to an old friend.”
