Physical activity has always been essential to my well-being, both physically and mentally. From soccer to tennis, running to hitting the gym, I truly believe that the importance I’ve placed on consistently staying active has had a profound impact on my productivity, energy levels, and overall happiness.
I have to go with The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. I frequently ask myself the question: what dream would I pursue if I was completely ignorant of the eyes and opinions of others? Not only does The Alchemist’s story give light to a potential answer, it also is a reminder to never stop asking myself that question.
