For many of us, living our why in their purest form may not be feasible. Yet there are many ways to integrate your purpose into your existing routines.
Deliberately build your day. Identify the things that bring you energy and integrate them into your other tasks. For example, if you really enjoy talking with others, schedule virtual work sessions with friends to help you feel invigorated all day.

Do things that are meaningful and allow you to bring your best contribution. If you have a passion for graphic design, volunteer that skill for a cause that you care about. Check out CatchAFire.org
, where individuals can volunteer their professional services for the social sector.
