4 Steps to Decluttering Your Mind and Thinking More Clearly

I started decluttering my home about a year ago. Six months in I found out that I was not alone, but there was a whole movement and mindset to it. Today I am calling myself a happy minimalist. My cellar is empty, my drawers are organized and cleaning is easy. My apartment seems bigger, yet cozy and very calm. I wish my mind would look the same. Reducing my stuff did save me a little bit of stress. I no longer worry about what I need and spend very little time searching for things, but those were only minor changes. If my head were a house, neighbors would gossip about the dodgy compulsive hoarder who lives inside and never greets anybody. My brain was full […]

7 Little Known Ways In Which Poor Sleep Is Killing You And Your Career

Tired huh? Or more like exhausted? Fact: The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that 30 percent, or 40.6 million, of American adults are sleeping six hours or less everyday. Chances are you’re in that statistic. In today’s information age sleep deprivation is an epidemic. Screens bombard you all day.

You furiously work late into the night, trying to get that extra little bit done. Sometimes, it’s that addictive ping from the smartphone alerting you to yet another email. At other times, it’s a document you’ve got to finish […]

Why We Fail To Pursue A More Purpose-Driven Profession

There is a wealth of books and blogs out there these days disclosing the latest findings on the how and why of our thinking. But even in this information-overload era we live in, the stats for those living a life less desired, especially in their work-life, still remain to be absurdly high. One wonders what’s missing. As an answer to this, let me shed some personal insights on the “why” of this conundrum by sharing these “not-so-obvious” reasons behind your inability to revamp yourself, your work, and your life. I’m also convinced the answers to these dilemmas once you have actually thought about them will become self-evident.

“Feararchy” – The Hierarchy of Fear

“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it.” ~Nelson Mandela An often used definition of fear is: An anxious feeling, caused by our anticipation of some imagined event or experience. Although there is a wide spectrum of things people fear – death of a loved one, Heights,Darkness, rejection from the opposite sex, injury from a car crash , embarrassment during a presentation, failure at the job- almost all of our fears are manufactured from these 5 basic fears, with #1 being the most natural one and #5 more of a socially constructed idea! Extinction—the fear dying or “no longer being” arouses an existential anxiety in most healthy humans. Remember that fast heartbeat you get every time you look […]

Boost Your Self Esteem Today – Great Things Can Happen

Most of us could use a bit of a self-esteem boost now and then. Self-esteem is all about how we feel inside. When our self esteem is low, we can find ourselves living with anxiety, we can be more prone to tolerating abusive behavior and relationships, and we can fail to live up to our full potential. There can also be cons to self esteem. For instance, when a person’s sense of self worth is much too high, it can become arrogance or what is termed ‘narcissism’, and this can create problems. Such persons can find it difficult to accept and learn from their own mistakes and can develop a false sense of entitlement. Developing a balanced level of self-esteem is key. For some, a […]

6 STEPS TO BECOMING THE BEST YOU

The greatest achievement in life is simple – Just be the best ‘you’ that is possible. It is, honestly, the greatest honor we can give to ourselves, to our creator and to those we love and respect – to simply live the best life we possibly can by being the best version of ourselves. Why is this so hard for most to live out in reality, though? It is because we have not made it a part of our lives. We have not made it a core goal & mission of our lives and we have not made a plan to achieve it. Success in anything has a method and a process. The journey is what crafts us and steels the fiber of who we […]

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3:17 If life for me hath joy or light, 'Tis all from thee, My thoughts by day, my dreams by night, Are but of thee, of only thee. Whate'er of hope or peace I know, My zest in joy, my balm in woe, To those dear eyes of thine I owe, 'Tis all from thee. My heart, even ere I saw those eyes, Seemed doomed to thee; Kept pure till then from other ties, 'Twas all for thee, for only thee. Like plants that sleep till sunny May Calls forth their life my spirit lay, Till, touched by Love's awakening ray, It lived for thee, it lived for thee. When Fame would call me to her heights, She speaks by thee; And dim would shine her proudest lights, Unshared by thee, unshared by thee. Whene'er I seek the Muse's shrine, Where Bards have hung their wreaths divine, And wish those wreaths of glory mine, 'Tis all for thee, for only thee. --Thomas Moore

4 Ways To Spend Time With Yourself And Get Away From The World

To begin with, there are only 4 points. People tend to read articles with many points so that they can continuously discover what’s wrong with them and change it ASAP. Those sessions ultimately waste the rest of the day, and pretty much the next few too. So here are 4 basic and simple ‘must adopt’ points that will help you feel more cozy around yourself. 1. Write a journal. Why? Because you can write your heart out and no one gets to know how you are feeling. Cry, laugh, move back in time, or forward, ponder over a thought or a feeling. Write it out! You could use free apps such as ‘Day one’ (App Store) and ‘Day Journal’ (Google Play) that are fast, easy […]
