4 Ways To Develop Your Passions And Live Life Spontaneously

4 Ways To Develop Your Passions And Live Life Spontaneously

When we feel as though our lives are becoming monotonous we seek change. We seek adventure, not necessarily an extreme adventure that involves travelling, but within ourselves and within our lives. Jose Llorens of Elite Daily suggests four ways you can begin to live life spontaneously and develop your passions:

It is needless to say that every expert was once a beginner. Being an expert entails more than the dedication of long hours and countless sleepless nights in order to master a craft. Sure, anyone can become an expert at something, but the passionate ones always seem to excel amongst everyone else.

Not everyone has to live like an expert to be one. Ever had that feeling that everything seems to be going your way, and you never want it to end? Well it doesn’t have to.

The vast majority of us spend our time trying to come up with ideas for our futures that assure security, yet it appears that this doesn’t always seem to be a reliable plan. Why? Because thinking about something will never be the same as trying it. You don’t have to find what you want to do. It’ll find you.

There’s not an esoteric strategy to finding what your passion is. If you have the opportunity to do something you want to do, go ahead and do it. Keep trying new things, and never settle for anything less than what you’re passionate for. It’ll keep that fire inside of you burning.

If you want to be an expert at life, then start living like a virgin. There is nothing more exhilarating than trying something for the first time as many of you can recall. You have no idea what you’re getting into, and you’ll never know the outcome.

New experiences lead to new opportunities. Live like you’ll die tomorrow, there’s no reason not to. That sense of adventure that you get from doing something spontaneous will truly make you happier. Get lost once and a while; here’s how.

Network

Meet new people. Have a conversation with a stranger, introduce yourself, and you’ll begin to notice that people want to be spoken to. People like to share and be listened to. Plus, you never know whom you are going to meet. People appreciate you more when you reach out to them and take an interest in their lives.

Travel

Traveling allows you to explore other environments and put your life into perspective. Being around different types of people, food, languages and cultures with ultimately change the way you view the world. Getting away from home will allow you to appreciate what you have, and it will also give you a better understanding of the world. We all need to travel for one reason or another.

Love

Love everybody. We’re all just people looking for our place in the world, and everybody has their own unique story. Treat everyone with respect, regardless of his or her age, sex, occupation or gender. Smile a lot. It brings good vibes and attracts people.

Stay Curious

Never lose that sense of curiosity we are each born with. As a child you remember the curious behavior that slowly diminished as you grew older. What happened to that urge to ask questions? Oh yeah, a conditioned society happened. Who cares what everyone is doing! Live your own life.

Keep learning new things and soak up the life around you. Try to have the curiosity of a five-year-old for the rest of your life. Don’t hold back on your desires. We all have responsibilities, but make it a habit to do something new everyday. Once you begin to get comfortable, that’s when you fail to embrace the spice of life. Keep moving forward.

If not now, then when?

11 Hidden Benefits of Using Oil Diffusers

11 Hidden Benefits of Using Oil Diffusers

Affordable, relaxing, and healthy, oil diffusers are gaining popularity with people everywhere due to their extensive benefits. Oil diffusers work through the simple process of oil diffusion, which uses heat to turn oil into a vapor that is then spread around a living space. Diffused oil can have several relaxation and health-related benefits, including safe scent-dispersion, mosquito and mold defense, stress relief, and more!

Read on for 11 hidden benefits of using oil diffusers.

1. Safe Scents That Make Sense

Unlike candles or air fresheners, oil diffusers release cleansing molecules into your air that work to purify it, not overload it with unhealthy chemicals. Electronic diffusers also do not pose the fire risk that candles do. Plus, they contain the added feature of interchangeability, which means you change oil types for different scents and health benefits.

2. Stress Relief

Several lab studies have confirmed that diffusing essential oils like lavender have been shown to reduce stress and help relieve anxiety in medical patients. Preliminary studies have also shown that oil diffusers can help alleviate symptoms of depression.

3. Improved Sleep

Diffused oil has relaxing properties that can help people of all ages fall asleep quicker and sleep more soundly. Electronic diffusers not only have the option to mix and match different oil blends (Try a lavender, Bulgarian rose, and Roman chamomile blend to help with insomnia), they also run at a gentle hum that helps relax an agitated mind. Many also come with an auto shut-off feature to help conserve oils once you have fallen asleep.

4. Appetite Control

Much like gum, oil diffusers can help stimulate the senses in a way that works to curb appetite. New research has shown that diffused peppermint oil can help curb appetite by inducing a satiety response within the body. Diffused peppermint oil has also been shown to increase energy.

5. Bacteria and Mold Killing

When essential oils are diffused in the air, they break down free radicals that contribute to the growth of harmful bacteria. Eucalyptus, thyme, and tea tree oils are especially good for this purpose. Diffused oil is also highly effective when it comes to combating fungal yeast threats, as the oil help makes the air inhospitable for yeasts such as mold. Pine and red thyme essential oils are best for combating mold.

6. Decongestion and Mucus Control

Ever tried Vick’s Vapo-Rub? Its decongesting powers come from active ingredients made from the eucalyptus tree. In principle, oil diffusers work the same way as Vapo-Rub, except they diffuse their decongesting vapor all around the room, not just on your chest or neck. Oil diffusers have been known to cure pneumonia in lab mice.

7. Mosquito Repellant

Nobody likes mosquitoes — but when the trade-off means using repellants full of DEET, a toxic chemical that can be especially harmful to children, mosquito control can often seem like a lose-lose. However, scientists have shown that oil diffusers can be used as a safe and highly effective mosquito repellant. Studies have shown that a diffused oil mixture containing clove essential oil and lemongrass essential oil repelled one type of Zika-carrying mosquito, the Aedes aegypti mosquito, at a rate of 100%.

8. Pain Relief

While applying oils directly to areas of your body may be the most effective way to alleviate pain, diffusing essential oils can also be an effective means of pain relief. When we inhale healthy essential oils, they enter our blood stream and can help internally relieve persistent pain from headaches, overworked muscles, and sore joints.

9. The New Anti-Viral

Research into the anti-viral effects of oil diffusion is now just gaining steam. A recent study showed that star anise essential oil was proven in medical experiments to destroy the herpes simplex virus in contained areas at a rate of 99%. Another study showed the popular DoTerra oil blend OnGuard to have highly-effective influenza-combating powers.

10. Improved Cognitive Function

Diffusing essential oils has also been shown to improve cognitive function. Many essential oils have adaptogenic qualities, which can work twofold in soothing us when we’re stressed, and giving our bodies a pick-me-up when we’re feeling down or sluggish. By working to level out an imbalanced mood, diffused oils also help us to focus. There are also several essential oils which have been shown to help balance the body’s hormones. With prolonged use, these oils can work to repair the underlying causes responsible for hindering cognitive function.

11. Money Saving

With ten clear benefits of oil diffusers already outlined, there is one more that should now be obvious: using an oil diffuser will help you to save money. As an anti-viral, bug repelling, and stress-relief solution rolled into one safe product, an oil diffuser used with the proper oils will save you money on products you might otherwise be buying to help cure those pesky headaches or get your kids to fall asleep on time. If you’re wondering just how affordable oil diffusers can be, check the buyer’s guide to the best oil diffusers — you’ll be sure to find one that fits your budget!
