There are three essential elements to living healthily, a happy and exciting life now:

Discipline is the foundational key for living an exciting life for both the short term and long term. We all know that exercise helps to us to feel more energetic and maintain a healthy body. However exercise can only help us keep our mind and body functioning in top form if actually do the exercises that suits us as individuals.
There are lots of different types available and any exercise is better than none.

The second key that making your life more exciting on daily basis is eating healthy.If you consider that food acts as fuel, you can see that it’s very important to eat foods that are nutritious and energizing. Your food affects you the person, it enhances or reduces your good mood, increases or decreases your mental clarity, your general health and even your skin is affected by your diet. Many people assume that eating healthily means eating food that has no taste and that provides no sense of enjoyment. The key to eating healthily is to start by looking at your common eating habits and figuring out how to modify them. You can do this by reading my book The Compass Health Transformer: Your 72 Hour Blueprint For Healthy Living. This book has easy to use tips on different strategies for eating healthy without going on a diet.
The third key to living a more exciting life now is stress management.Stress is a killer; it can have an overwhelming and detrimental effect on your whole lifestyle. When stress escalates, it throws your whole life out of balance and this is not just physically but emotionally or mentally too. Never under estimate how much damage stress can do, although short term stress is natural and more manageable, unfortunately many people endure stress, they live through it, weather the storm and think that they cope but the constant pressure whether recognized or not, can impact your overall health.
Constant pressure can occur through our daily interactions and relationships.Part of the reason why this happens is because we don’t allow people to get close to us, we restrict our emotions because we are afraid to get hurt and are too busy to get close to those that really love us. This includes our spouse and friends.If we really want to live an exciting now we have to learn to let things go, and begin to take the daily steps that are productive, constructive and beneficial. Sometimes it is better to simply keep quiet and give our our loved ones a hug , this could even help to lower your blood pressure and reduce stress, and more fun and excitement to our lives.
Putting all these keys together will require consistently taking small steps everyday. After all the journey of a thousand miles begins with a step. Start small but with determination and deliberation, remember that the only person limiting your progress is you. You can begin the process of living an exciting live now by discovering your inner compass now.
