7 Ways To Enrich Your Life

Enriched Life

Preface

In nearly everyones life, there comes a time when we either get bored with how our lives are unfolding, how we mentally interact with this reality, or come to question the very nature of reality and of our own existence. This may be the result of having a paradigm shift in the way we think about religion or spirituality, learning about the nature of quantum physics, contemplating our own mortality, or reassessing our own accomplishments.

The list in this article is in no way complete or perfect. This list is merely created from my own observations, and I believe it ties into the top three levels of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs.

Use some, all, or more than my list. And it is most important to remember that life is not a competition. There is no perfect way to live life. And it isn’t about an end result. Life is about the journey, and enjoying the path.

Medical note: If you feel like you are in a rut, and your life has dulled, this might be some form of clinical depression. If you feel your situation is beyond my article, consider speaking with a mental health specialist. They can assist with a wide variety of disorders.
