Get involved In your own life

When your mind is going around every topic in your life and you have many things happening at the same time, take a step back and breath.

Foremost important think to note and accept is that everything will not happen at once. So you must wait for things to happen in the order. If you are totally perplexed then this may not make sense to you.

Start with an activity and then go complete it. Take another task and go on with it. It may seem difficult to hang on, but just go with the flow and then you will be there. It’s most often you are not giving your brain something to work on, which is why it gets running all over the place.

So keep your mind engaged in activities and feel the calmness within. When you are totally engrossed in yourself, you will see and experience a change in your own behavior. Because of which lot of other things in your life seem to be happening in a different way.

Slowly you will feel the flow of actions and results connecting to one another and then you will feel better. You are able to focus better and function better. Just let this continue for a while and acquire more activities of different category. Let your body burn out and your mind get worked upon. Eventually you will feel the heat and then the rhythm will be established.

When you get totally charged, it becomes easier for you to pick your things and make decisions. A lot of things in life like your relationships and events start to make a lot more sense and you are lot less disturbed or worried about things. Now there is no space for some random thing to hit you. You are set on your course and you will fly further.

May such a continuous rhythm take place in your journey and you experience soothing effect of a worked up human brain.

Let the energy of life work for you

There is a constant energy being transferred in the Universe. Some energy reaches the Earth in the form of Sunlight. One which is very necessary for life to exist. We humans consume light as well. That gives us energy in form of Vitamin D.

In life, there is a constant flow of energy from people in your life, the places you go to, your work place and your neighborhood. Often you meet a small cute child on your way out of your home and you smile. The innocence and cuteness of the child makes you feel a certain kind of emotion.

At the same time, while you are traveling in a bus you get squeezed in the crowd or it rains on your way to an important meeting, there is a different kind of emotion running through you. What if you have ordered a pizza on a hungry night and you get a cold pizza delivered late. You get so flabbergasted.

But when you sit in a park on a Sunday morning and look at the people going around. The chirping of the birds and the animals running around. That vibrant situation creates a sense of positive energy in you. You can feel some type of energy going through you and everything else in the world is not reaching you.

It is not everytime things are smooth. But one the simplest effort we can make in feeling the energy around us is to smile and connect with the nature. Let the momentum gain. Be one with the things and stop struggling within.

For once believe in the flow of life and continue to embrace as things happen in your life. Be like the child and be curious to know and experience life. Everyday will be exciting and new.

When you let the energy flow through you, you feel stronger than you were. There is always a guiding force working for you. You will meet new people who are there for the things you need in your life. When you seek, the things are arranged in the way it must be.

So follow your rhythm of life. Be one with self and others. Don’t struggle within. Embrace the nature and it’s signals. Smile within and out. Life will nurture you like its own child. Stay blessed.

Step by Step gain control of yourself and your life !

SELFCARE

When everything seems to be out of place, just hold on for a while and take something that is in your own control and try to make the best of it.

Start by eating well and taking care of yourself. Go for a walk or a jog or get a routine of physical exercise.

Once you start to feel better improve on your capacity. Feel the emotions flowing through you. Listen to some music and follow your rhythm.

NOURISHMENT

Then gift yourself little happiness. Get that favorite item you have been longing for. Try to eat something that makes you happy. Meet a friend who is on the same rhythm as you. Go out for a while.

SMALL THINGS

As you start you get flowing with pace and things start to getting into shape, take the bigger tasks and stuff that involves others. Things that aren’t directly in your control. Take them one by one, bit by bit. As you go on, some may happen smoothly while others may still be at the same place. Since you have changed from the last time, there may be something you can do about it.

IMPROVEMENT

Try to focus on things that are important and make a map of what you wish to do. Take a decision on stagnant things. Let go some of the old things that you have been stuck with. Find a new place. Get yourself into different position in life. May be look for a new job if it requires. Fix a broken electronic item. Get a face lift for your room. Buy something that is necessary and nourish self and surrounding.

BOOST

Then when you are on the final edge, double down on your capacity. Increase your limit of physical endurance. Take part in competitions. Plan your days ahead. Take a stride. Plan your finance. Make decisions of things that need your intervention and carry forward from there. Own your self and your life. Shred off things that are not necessary.

CHALLENGE

Gift yourself with bigger things that will help you develop further in life. Make good connections that keep you going. Stay on course. Take a vacation once in a while. Do things that you like and are good at.

TRANSFORMATION

Over the period of time, you will feel better at things you do and you will do things that make you feel better. You will find transformation at the core level and now the world will look so different from your view point.

All the best.

Going down the memory lanes

Take a minute away from the hustle of life and sit down. Try to relax your nerves and feel calm. Now say to yourself, you are interesting and there is more to you than meets the eye.

Think about that time you went to school for the first time. The times when you won’t go walking with your tiny little legs carrying heavy bag. Sitting in the class with full of chattering, crying and shouting kids you are in your own little world. Until you grow up you don’t realize it’s always going to be so. You will be placed with a group of people with a similar agenda and you must work your way through to fulfill the agenda.

Similarly think about all those little things about you, your childhood, friends, the places you have been to, the times you got hurt or felt happy, things you liked and the food you ate. Find out which are very significant memories that are etched in your mind. When you saw a lion for the first time, may be in a zoo or a safari or in the wild. First time you been to a concert. Similarly try to talk to some of your friends and family members about old times and make it a habit to do so every few weeks. Look at the albums you have in your closet with all those photographs taken from Kodak or Cannon cameras containing the negatives.

Indulge in the activity with your closed ones and cherish the moments. Recreate those memories and relive those moments.

Having a bad day ? Going through bad mood ! Try this

Breaking the chain of anger and bad mood.

Beautiful start of the day. Early morning he wakes up and gets ready. He kisses his wife morning, hugs his daughter and eats his breakfast. He takes a ride to office via cab. He wishes good day to the cab driver. He reaches office. He makes his way into the canteen, grabs his coffee and joins morning meeting. Everyone takes note and go back to their desk to complete the assigned work. He joins his colleagues for lunch.

The chain reaction is triggered. Post lunch in a meeting with delegates he is put on spot by his manager and gets a trashing from higher management for incompetency. Since he believed he was not at fault, rage built in him. He went to grab a coffee at canteen. He was mad at the server for the coffee seemed cold. He went to complete his work and found some pending work with his colleague, so he ran into an argument regarding that. Further during evening meeting with his subordinates he was picking everyone for their mistakes and scolding unnecessarily for no apparent reason. Wrapping for the day, he catches a cab towards home.

How it spreads during the day. The cab driver doesn’t accept card and doesn’t find any change with him. He fights with the cab driver and abuses him. He enters home and finds his daughter playing on ground. He scolds her for playing in dirt and shouts at his wife. She tries to cool him down but instead they find that he has forgotten to bring eggs for dinner. They manage something for dinner. He gets into an argument with the neighbors for loud noise from TV. He scolds his parents over phone for not taking care of them. He doesn’t meet his friends for late evening walk.

Day ends in a bad mood. He is in bed. His day has gone from beautiful start to a tiresome dreadful night.

Looking back at how it all started. By continuing with the experience of meeting over the day, he ran into multiple encounters which kept worsening as his outlook, energy and mood detoriated over the day. He kept on flowing that anger onto other persons, who in turn based on their own emotional level get angry on others. Early morning managers wife made a burnt sandwich, which got worse for him by a flat tire in his car, unable to find a ride for an hour and so on.

Negative emotions are our enemies. Everyday we all spread different emotions around us based on our encounters. Most often that not, when triggered by some negative emotions, we drag it for the entire day or sometimes for whole week depending upon it’s gravity. In process we hurt some people along the way, some whom we love and care for. We get hurt or upset on our own. Things might not be so worse often but even a spur of moment and anger bursts out like anything. By words or our actions we cannot undo, we create a scene. This amplifies certain times.

Shifting the flow of thoughts and emotions. We cannot choose what happens to us every moment. We are humans. We react to things. But we can improve. We can choose to observe what is happening around us. We can train ourselves to become more observant and calm. When we notice how our emotions are shifting over the day, we can tell ourselves what went wrong. If we can develop the habit of consolidating actions over the day and identify where things could have been damped down. We can train to respond in a more calm fashion.

Practicing to respond and being mindful. By frequently choosing to respond instead of reacting to situations and events during the day, we can make our normal response model to be a more generic, joyful and cautious one. By practising mindfulness in small things we can become calm, cheerful, delightful person over the day, over the week and when continued for years, it becomes over inherent nature to be mindful, calm and less angry.

Lessons learned. By breaking the chain of thoughts, encounters and events over the day, we help ourselves from experiencing prolonged negative emotions as well as assist in curbing the spread to people around us especially our loved ones.
