When the time comes to take action on something youve been thinking about, you "just know." Ignoring this impulse leads to bad places: frustration, depression and listlessness among them. Waking up to your inner voice is a practice. This practice should be the norm, as it has the power to shape your life. To help keep yourself closely attuned to your inner voice, it is wise to do regular physical exercise and to eliminate harmful dietary habits.
