Carpe diem! Seize the day!
This is what conscious living is all about – actively making choices, being in control of your life, steering it to where you want it to go.
Are you living the life that you have always wanted? Does your job make you feel fulfilled? Are you in a relationship that makes you happy? Are you surrounded with people that bring positivity to your everyday living? Do you feel that you lend a hand in making the world a better place?
If you answered yes to all these questions, kudos to you. If you answered no to all questions or to some of them, perhaps now is the time to reflect and think about what you want to do with your life. Do you want it to continue as it is or do you want to live it meaningfully?
Whether you are already living a conscious life, drifting through it unconsciously or simply want to know more, here’s a list of podcasts that you may want to tune into. Hopefully, this list will bring you some peace, health and joy in 2017:
