Wellness Almanac posed the question “Vitality. Where do you find it?” At breakfast I asked the same question to our family and visitors: a sculptor, a social worker, two teenagers, an 8 year old, and a couple of office workers. Here is what they said:
In art. Watch this video of the artist Chihuly from Seattle. He is so in-the-moment, free, and alive. His energy and creativity is inspiring.
With other people. I am most alive when I’m interacting with friends.
Skating on a frozen lake.
Canoeing in the wilderness. I feel immersed in the world around me.
Jumping into a cold mountain lake.
Running, hiking, skiing or any physical activity that makes me feel like my body is strong.
For me, I found vitality over coffee and breakfast this morning. I unexpectedly realized how alive I feel when I’m learning, attentive, and really engaged with those I love. It was a rewarding experience, mentally challenging, collaborative, and insightful. A great start to the day. Thank you Wellness Almanac!
