This post ties in well with the theme for this week “Patience“
Understanding the difference between a want and a need will make it easier to decide what things are worth chasing vs waiting for in life.
If the mind and mouth belong to the body, what belongs to the soul? We speak of infinite tales of mankind and its growth. We speak boldly of integrity and justice. We assert our views and want to see developments likewise. Here is the problem, All of these end up becoming our wants and not […]
Unplugging and taking quiet time is the best gift you can give yourself. Refusing to succumb to the pull of the internet removes the cloud that confuses ones’ purpose. Just imagine in a typical day; you wake up with a list of goals you want to accomplish, but somehow the first thing you do is look at the updates on your phone and at this point, your focus shifts from taking care of your goals to fixating on trends. Then as you go throughout your day, during your commute and work, you sneak in moments where you “need” to answer a message or look at a post.
This occurrence becomes embedded in your daily lives to the point where feeding the addiction displaces accomplishing goals. Then, there comes the point where you have lost sight of who you are as a person. This displacement is real and dangerous; the addiction grows slowly and steadily while distracting its host into some alternate reality. The good news is that this addiction is reversible. The same way you convinced yourself to scroll through social media is the same way you can persuade yourself to close the application. Believe it or not, your world will not shatter if you don’t look at the trends multiple times a day.
Take some time during the day to turn off your phone and direct your attention to some other aspect of your life.
Go outside and rediscover nature; with the rapid consumption of technology, humans have strayed away from the divine cycle of the universe. The use of content has become more critical than self-care. Go outside and learn to re-appreciate the beauty and calming effects of nature.
Take the time to reflect on your past and present so that you can create targets for your future.
Try consuming as little artificial light as possible; the presence of artificial life affects the hormonal balance in the body.
Try Adopting early sleep and wake times; resting between the recommended hours does help holistically and waking up early allows you to accomplish some personal goals before you have to go into work.
I got called weird all the time for saying that I talk to myself. Talking to myself is one of the things that calms me; the inner zen part reaches out to reassure me that things are going alright. When I repeat those words enough, I feel good enough to continue my day.
” I BELIEVE IN YOU” is one of my most common ones. Words so simple can make you feel so good; it’s truly a proverbial comforter. My trick is saying it so many times that I start believing and my perception changes.
As part of my morning routine, I wake up, pray and meditate. As that became an integral part of my day I realised I became more grounded and had a clear sense of what I wanted to do. Ideas and thoughts came more freely and I had escape creativity constipation.
As I went about my day last week, this thought came into my head of what I should do next. I instantly thought it was a great idea because it allowed me to bring more positivity to this space.
With no further ado, I bring to you Affirmation Mondays. I will post an affirmation to help you start your week with good vibrations. These will be picked after deep pray and meditation. Do hope you enjoy!
