To reach your goals in life or simply live a happy and healthy life, there are two things to consider: What you want and why (Can it do good for others?) and which conditions can enable that?
To find out where and how you would like to live, you must clearly set your own standard that you don’t derive from. Here are questions to answer to get you started:
Which temperature do you prefer inside your home and office?
Which temperature and climate do you prefer it to be outside?
Which type of air and humidity alongside weather and season do you prefer for working and relating?
Where can you access a bit of nature?
When do you feel your best? Why is that? Who are you with and where? What do you then need to be like that again?
How would your favorite home look like in terms of style and amenities?
When do you feel rested and relaxed?
What can you do to feel rested and relaxed?
What inspire you and gets you going?
How many hours of sleep do you need and during which time of day?
What kind of food are you eating and how does eating different things make you feel different? What are your preferred taste?
Which types of fitness exercises can you do to get in shape?
What do you like wearing?
Which products do you need to take good care of yourself?
Do you need to schedule a session with a physio-therapist to heal an injury, or release and realign a stressed spine? Would some massage help you?
How often do you want to have sex, how, when and where?
What would you like to learn more about?
What inspires you?
What are you telling the world about yourself and your life? How is it for real?
When do you feel safe?
Who makes you laugh?
When, where and how can you share your troubles, ponderings and opinion about what is going on?
Who gives you a hug and who can you hug?
What are you grateful for?
What do you believe in?
What is your purpose in life?
How much do you like to be alone and when not?
Do you like going out or do you prefer to be at home at others’ places?
How often do you call someone and about what?
Which groups do you belong to and what do they stand for?
All these needs together make a blue-print for who you are and what you like. What is most important? How do you honor and respect this need? What can you say yes more to, as well as no?
When you choose to pursue a happy and healthy life, you won’t need to constantly buy bigger and better or have a bucket-list. The less you need to think of what you want or need, the more creative and open you will be, the more flow you’ll have.
