5 Tips for Living from the Heart

A growing number of people are discovering that living from the heart is a beautiful way to walk through life and observe the world around us. Not only can living from the heart improve health, self-confidence and personal performance, but it can also give you a sense of fulfillment and general well-being.

I’d like to share with you five tips for living from the heart. Take a week and try one each day. Choose a tip and make a commitment to integrate it in all that you do for that entire day.

Five Tips for Living from the Heart

Tip 1: Choose to practice love, compassion and appreciation as a way of life.

Tip 2: Learn to live in the now, bringing more of your real self into each moment.

Tip 3: Practice listening to your heart’s discernment for intuitive guidance through life’s interactions: personal, family or social.

Tip 4: Give back. This can inspire the one who receives what you give to someday give back to another, which can energize a great many people to do the same until a chain of giving back weaves its way around the globe.

Tip 5: Practice going back to your heart to gain more intuitive understanding of how to find balance and rhythm while facing stress and resistance.

I’d also like to share with you a short video, Living from the Heart. This video is the first video of the Insightful Heart Series: Whispers from Within, which I created for the Institute of HeartMath. I designed the series to encourage you to pause, reflect and connect with your heart. I hope these simple and uplifting messages – each a minute or less – will fill your heart and inspire you.

As you experience each of these videos, take a moment to ponder their meaning. Consciously activate these feelings several times daily and make them part of who you are. I will periodically post one of the “Insightful Heart Video Series” in the “Nourishing the Heart” column.

I try to live by my intuition not my heart. I've made some very poor decisions that i totally regret following my heart. If I would have followed my intuition in some situations, I would have been on a much more positive path right now.

I am very intuitive. When I listen to that as opposed to the argumentative side of my head life goes more smoothly.
