In today's world, with hectic lifestyles, the only thing really important is – Balance in life…!
Though people often say that they have a balance in their life… very few people actually possess it.
However; it can be developed by everyone..
- With self control, controlling our emotions and not getting influenced by events in the surrounding environment.
Simply put, all you need is a bit of common sense and good judgment and not let the outside world affect your inner world.
There have been instances, when we let emotions overwhelm us completely; haven’t there?
Lost our temper?
Given in to instantaneous bouts of irritation?
Many such more and then regretted later...?
All this does is just really slowly eats/sucks up on all your energy and leaves you drained.
Even for every day menial work.
To see where you stand –
Ask these questions to yourself and see, to how many questions you can give yourself a positive answer:
Do you shout at your children, spouse, co-workers or employees?
Do you get angry with normal situations?
Are you happy with this situation?
Do you let your work, the weather, other people behavior and attitude, the movies or the newspapers influence the way you feel and think.
Do outside events distract your mind and make you think about them, instead of what you choose to think about?
This is loss of inner balance and lack of inner peace.
Lack of inner balance causes fluctuations of the emotions, lack of decisiveness and wasting time on unnecessary thoughts, emotions and actions.
We have the remedy… yes…
Here’s what you can do –
The first 30-45 minutes after waking up in the morning are vital to shape up your whole day.
They influence your mood SO you have to use them in the right way.
Throughout the day, try to maintain slow and steady reactions to things.
Doesn't mean you have to be indifferent about everything, but instead don't react to things quickly, hold it back and try to calm yourself down, you can take a few deep breathes, count upto 10 and then react.
It helps to calm you down, to react better and will give a better outcome to the situation.
On the other hand, if people are complaining about you, if they tell you things that you wouldn't want to hear, don't react immediately…
Instead hold back your anger and instead of getting insulted, try to approach it with a broader perspective.
If the other person's words are really important and if they really matter to you, maybe you should think wisely and heed to her/his advice or opinion, instead of retorting in anger.
From time immemorial, we always have been hearing that life is full of ups and downs and we always have to move on.
However, very few people take this into consideration and behave accordingly.
Neither you should lament upon your past mistakes nor should you worry too much about the future.
No matter what happens there will always be a way out.
Seeking help from others in such situations is advised.
The other major stress point is – guilt.
Life does move on you know. You shouldn't think too much about your wrongdoing or mistake, as it has already happened.
A wiser way is to take the learning from what has happened.
But – remember to take the learning and improve from there on.
Merely accepting a mistake committed isn’t going to bring salvation.
Ultimately, after every fall, you will definitely rise up.
Develop inner strength
And the Ability to make the Mind Quiet…
through concentration exercises…
visualization or affirmations…
… will take you a long way toward attaining and maintaining inner balance and peace.
The experts always stress on the fact that focusing on basics and simple little things will make things fall into place.
The same applies to looking younger too; some natural things or activities rather, which we unknowingly ignore can contribute to you looking 10 years younger starting right this instant.
Am giving you the secret recipe, to look younger and you don't need cosmetics, facials, make-up or any other thing.
Here's what you need-
Fresh supply of oxygen or pure air and a good amount of red blood flowing to your face, that's the real secret.
If these two factors are accomplished, you may even look 20 years younger.
How would you do that?
Well; there are amazingly healthy, natural and non-harmful ways to do it:
Maintain a Good Posture
Do you get it why? Simply because enough blood flows towards your face, it's that simple. Research has proven it too. So what if you slump too much? Simply walk with your hands on your hips, with a straight head for 10 minutes a day.
Walk for 20 Minutes a Day
Walking simply gets you going, works every muscle in your body. So, when you walk for 20+ minutes a day, you are working your face muscles too that demand fresh oxygen supply.
Gobble Down Blueberries and Nuts
f possible both of them.
If not - either will suffice.
In nuts; go for walnuts, 13-20 per day
[and there's more advantages it brings with it]:
Reduced heart disease risk (by 45%), reduced blood pressure, reduced blood sugar, belly fat is gone and the best of all you'll look younger by 5-6 years at least.
Guaranteed. But you'll have to give some time for the results to kick in, say 2-3 weeks.
Hiking, singing in a choir group, join a ballet group, cycling or anything that makes you active.
And hey, don't do things that won't make you happy, say you're cycling to keep you active, but if it ain't making you happy abandon it!
Do things that'll make you happy, that is another secret to look younger!
Hang with a Buddy
Have fun with your bud, laugh around, shoot pool, bowl if you want and try to be happy.
Research proves that doing so can make you look at least 8 years younger or more. So why wait, pick your bud and have fun!
Spend Time with your Love!
Going on a date can make you look younger by 8 years at least. Spend time with your loved one, drink some wine or champagne, eat dark chocolate...
It’s not always the difficult path that makes you beautiful...!!
there are times when life churns us - while delivering the toughest times.
the tough time is not the issue. that's usually fine... bearable till a point
it's the after effects that kill us.
the carrying of that burden of that tough time.
the burden can be in the form of anger, regret, guilt... name a negative emotion and you may be carrying the burden sub-consciously.
however; if you are consciously aware of any such burden - let it go.
you won't get an inch further in life by carrying it within.
you may of course progress on a superficial level but deep down it'll keep you statutory.
and that won't allow you freedom.
smelling the air.
feeling the raindrops.
and believe me- it's not worth it.
your life will come to it's end with a blink of an eye and you will not have anytime to breathe it.
instead of regrets at the fag end of your life... learn to let it go.
let go of the negatives...
let go of anything that's holding you.
forgive that friend who didn't care.
let go of what your mother thought.
move on from the emotion of your bro's handling issues.
free yourself from holding on to pettiness daily.
learn to be vocal.
voice your kindness.
learn to grow beyond.
learn to be more.
breathe in the higher you.
L.E.A.R.N. to L.E.T. G.O.
you owe yourself that much.
you deserve a beautiful life.
