For several years books are the most faithful teachers for me… teachers I can choose. Through books I can talk with fantastically interesting people from all around the world, from different times. Brilliant opportunity, right?
Every month I will share with you my favorite quotes about a healthy lifestyle, happiness, nutrition and more.
What is a happy life? Who should we listen to when we are looking for a career? What should we eat and how should we dress? Answers from Steve Jobs, Darin Olien, Garance Dore and Jason Wachob in the quotes of May. Inspiration is here. Only shhhhh…
A wellthy existence is one in which happiness is attainable, health is paramount, and daily living is about abundance. It’s a life in which work is purposeful; friendships are deep and plentiful; and there’s a daily sense of richness or overflowing joy. Jason Wachob, founder of Mindbodygreen
Let’s face it, we already know how we should eat. The problem is that we are too good at pretending we don’t. It is the only way we could go on downing some of the junk we consume, stuff we know is doing us harm. No other animal does that… Eat a wide variety of whole, fresh, clean foods—mostly vegetables, fruit, beans, nuts, seeds, grains, sprouts, and healthy fats. Eat a lot of it raw. Okay, it took me two sentences, but there! It is that simple. How we pretend not to understand? Darin Olien, nutritionist and superfoods expert.
Are you reaching for a new career? Looking for love? Go on and dress for it. Borrow from your dreams. Of being a movie star. A great lover. A great mother. A respected teacher. A free spirit. An astrologer. An artist. A painter, a sculptor. Whatever they are, these dreams are ours and they make us. They guide us in our style – and in our lives. Garance Dore, French photographer, illustrator, fashion blogger.
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. Steve Jobs, Stanford Commencement Address, June 12, 2005
