Gaining Inspiration

Written By Julie Paiva, CHHC


If you are feeling stuck and uninspired when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle, take comfort in the fact that it happens to everyone from time to time. You CAN get out of this slump. Inspiration plays a key role in our lives – propelling us forward in our dreams, awakening us to our unlimited potential, and evoking greater creativity and innovation within us. Sometimes things in our life can make us feel frustrated keeping us from doing the things for ourselves that we know we should. You don’t always have to dig deep into your own soul to get inspired. You can turn to those you see as similar to yourself or, even better, those you see as personifying the inspirational goals you would like to achieve.


Here is a selection of wellness quotes. Allow these motivational and informative quotes to lift you to your highest potential.
