Hello everyone! This post I took from one of my favorite YouTube channel named “High On Life”. Go check and subs their channel and hope it inspires you!
What makes you feel alive? What makes you feel anticipation and enthusiasm now? What would you rather be doing right now? And where would you rather be? And what’s stopping you other than yourself? It’s not money or other people. It’s just you and your priorities. Your only priority is finding your path in life. The trouble is, you think you have time. What gives your life purpose? What are you grateful for? What marks the days when you are excited to get out of bed? Maybe you’re still looking for it. Sometimes you have to explore the world outside so that you can find the answers inside. What if you become aware of your inner dialogue and feel control over your emotions. You learn to still your mind and recognize your intuition, deep in your belly, in your very centre. You trust it and follow it. And you have a little faith in the universe having your back. Tap into your own state of flow and you find clarity and direction. And your intuition will lead you to purpose and fulfillment. You can gravitate to places and people who inspire you, whom you admire. You can learn to anchor the states of mind that serve you best. And you can drop into them as you wish. You can consciously chose how you react to the world. And you can choose to work on yourself and become extraordinary. And don’t take any of it too damn seriously! Lighten up and have some fun! Play outside your comfort zone! There are many ways of looking at the world, and your own beliefs navigate your own particular experience. But you are entitled to make new ones, to change. Everything changes with time. But it’s up to you to chose growth.
What does it feel like to be present? To be here in the now and fully experiencing this moment. Free from any weight of the past or any anticipation of the future. Just free. Free to realize that only you can control how you feel. About anything. Free to see things for what they are and free to give your time and energy to what really matters. Accept the fact that everything that makes up your world is there because you attracted it with your own thoughts. Realize that you can control your thoughts and emotions. There’s no big secret. Just choose to think better feeling thoughts. Listen to your emotions and chose to feel good. You can decide to be in a place of attraction and abundance. What do you want to do in your life? What makes you tick? What makes you feel awe? Don’t be misled into thinking that you’re supposed to do anything. You are supposed to do only what you chose to do. The world is vast and full of possibilities. Follow your bliss. Get out of your comfort zone. Stop looking for reasons why you can’t and look for reasons why you can.
We are living in an age where we are all busy. There is always something to do, and it seems like we are constantly doing something. Your friends are just a few taps of your finger away, strangers from around the world are interacting with your social media accounts at all times of the day and night, and you get notified everytime it happens. You work in a competitive environment, your boss has more and more tasks for you, and you find yourself telling more people that “you’ll try to find time”. The world is so busy, we’ve started creating shortcuts for things. Fast-food restaurants are flourishing because we don’t always have enough time to cook and eat a meal. Cars have phone holders so you can have conversations and “be productive” while you drive. Caffeinated beverages are sold everywhere, to give you that little energy boost, so that you can do more with the little time you seem to have in the day. And then at the end of it, all you’re left with is “I’m too tired”. But how much time are you spending on you? Just because you’re busy, does that mean you’re being effective or efficient with your time? This video is a reminder of the physical and psychological benefits of spending time alone. You get to take a break from daily life. A chance to shut off all the noise and distractions, and a chance to give your brain the rest it needs. Just like any other muscle in your body, your brain begins to fatigue over time. By taking even 10 minutes to relax, you will rejuvenate your mind and be able to think more clearly and more effectively. This helps to improve your concentration and allows you to focus on what is most important to you. By getting a clear understanding of your priorities, you will become more productive in tackling them. There may be times where you don’t know the answer to a problem, or the appropriate steps to take to solve it. Finding the answers you need is significantly more challenging when you’re distracted by incoming information. Turn your phone off and spend some time alone. You might be surprised how clearly solutions come to you when you’re focussing on them without distractions. By spending time with yourself and gaining a better understanding of who you are and what you desire in life, you’re more likely to make better choices about who you want to be around. Which, in turn, can make you appreciate your relationships with others even more. Probably the most important benefit to solitude is learning more about who you are. What makes you happy, what gives you joy. Recognize your strengths and weaknesses. Analyze your flaws. Free your mind from negativity. Strengthen your appreciation for the little things in life. What you do, and how you spend your time tells you who you are. You cannot pour from an empty cup. If you are not giving to yourself, you will not be able to adequately give to others. Remember: nobody is too busy. It’s just a matter of priorities. When’s the last time you cooked a meal for yourself? Are you getting as much exercise as you’d like to be? How many books have you read in the last 3 months? Have you traveled anywhere new and exciting lately? Go for a walk Take a hike Make a list Have a bath Listen to your favorite music Write a letter to your family Do a crossword puzzle/Sudoku What kind of investments are you making in you?
