As we age, the idea of active living or maintaining an active lifestyle may seem “exhausting” or “overwhelming,” especially if our friends or family members do not motivate or encourage us to try new things or participate in activities.

At Origin Active Lifestyle Communities, we believe active living goes beyond physical activity. It is about addressing and supporting all dimensions of wellness in your life:

  • Physical
  • Emotional
  • Intellectual
  • Social
  • Spiritual
  • Environmental
  • Occupational

Origin also understands the power of positivity. Positive words can change the way we feel about ourselves, and when we change the way we think, our actions begin to reflect. If you believe that leading a more active lifestyle will be draining work, then it will be. But, if your mindset believes that it will be fun and exciting, your results will reflect that.

Here are 10 inspirational quotes that can be applied to any area of wellness:

“Next to trying and winning, the best thing is trying and failing.” — L.M. Montgomery
