1) What does living from the heart mean to you?
Living from the heart means loving to the fullest, saying kind words often, giving hugs, living with intention, purpose, laughing out loud, and giving thanks every day.
2) Please share some of your favorite morning activities/rituals that set you up for a lovely creative day ahead.
My favorite morning activities include: Good morning kisses to my lovies, drinking a tall glass of water with lemon and a pinch of cayenne, 30 minutes of stretching/yoga/meditation and a beautiful green smoothie.
3) What will be your area of focus for your posts on “Your heART makes a difference”?
All of the topics are wonderful. I love the topic of living with gratitude, but self care is also very important to me too.
4) In what ways does this subject really help make a difference to our lives?
Gratitude makes everything better. A bad day can turn around when you give thanks for things you have instead of things you don’t have. Self care is especially important when you care for others (children, family members, etc) When you take of yourself, you can live and give more purposefully. You also function at your best level when you feel good about yourself and are not tired or stressed.
5) What or who is your biggest inspiration?
My biggest inspiration is my family. I always want to be the best person I can be for them. That means being positive, gracious, kind and living my dreams. I also find a lot of inspiration in nature and being out doors.
Thank you Regina. Please join me in welcoming Regina as one of our heART contributors
