Spending time dreaming is not the waste of time some would have you believe. Daydreaming, more than anything else, can stoke your creative energy and amp you back up. It’s vital to your overall mental, emotional and physical health, and neuroscientists have found dreaming to be an important part of your cognitive wellbeing. A 2012 study published in Psychological Science by researchers from the University of Wisconsin and the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Science suggests that a wandering mind correlates to higher degrees of what is referred to as working memory. This means dreaming might help us tap into creative problem-solving.

Apathy and complacency are the real enemies of love. They sneak up on us like small leaks in a boat and drain our imagination until we lose all motivation to keep growing. We’ve all fallen into this chasm of downward energy, but it’s vital to continue dreaming and acting on dreams to develop as human beings.

Recommit to letting your mind explore new possibilities by conceptualizing your biggest dreams and acting on them within the next 24 hours. Here are 16 quotes that will inspire you to live your dream life.

Life is too short to simply walk the beaten path. Yoga inspires us to reveal our fears and hesitations so we can grow beyond them into uncharted potential. Yoga has helped me realize that a final savasana is inevitable. Our lives are brief, and there’s no time to waste.

So don’t hold back! Don’t get stuck in living only SMART goals (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic). Once and for all, break free of needing to know the outcome before you attempt something. Adventure somewhere, whether it’s close to home or somewhere exotic. Plan your next adventure now! Love yourself, love your day, love your life! And remember these wise words:

“When you step away from the confines of realistic, you become an artist painting your own masterpiece, an explorer charting new territories.

“A man practices the art of adventure when he heroically faces up to life. When he has the daring to open doors to new experiences. When he is unafraid of new ideas, new theories and new philosophies. When he has the curiosity to experiment. When he breaks the chain of routine.” – Wilfred Peterson, The Art of Living

“Blessed are the curious, for they shall have adventures.” – Lovelle Drachman
