Speaking from personal experience, the first issue that I detected was that when I was exhausted, I managed to stay in a cheerful mood, my patience was tested and also the atmosphere was uncomfortable and rip-roaring. I also noticed that even though I felt annoyed or impatient, I was quick to retreat and adjust my view of the situation. I feel happier and more relaxed and change my view of the situation. I felt happier and more relaxed than I have done on previous work.
It’s straight forward to begin a daily meditation practice when you are sitting at the house alone in your pajamas on a comfortable pillow with a mug of hot herbal tea in your hands being attentive to the birds chirping outside.
But I will share some of the things that I do actually practice daily:
Meditation — You only offer ten minutes in an exceedingly full day. Then you evaluated it had been greater to do that, rather than to try to accomplish to half an hour and only get it done every now and then. Ten minutes at least gives you a chance to take a few deep respiration, concentration, and clear your brain. It has helped you to calm down and to quiet the interior monkey (thoughts up and down). It has helped you to not anxiety during the stressful time period during your whole day.
Intention — Setting a transparent intention with the objects, you do have been extraordinarily useful. I actually have a vision board on my cell phone, still as a brief text describing the life, you would like to have two years from the current time. you examine the board and memorize the text every morning and every evening. This helps you to stay clear concerning the direction you are heading. It helps you to concentrate on what you want to get done and more importantly WHY you want to get it done. And it’s not just about things you want to achieve, but also who you want to be.
Relaxation — I enable myself longer to simply get pleasure from the instant to require deep breaths, endure walks in nature, read a book, have a cup of coffee or watch the best movie. And I do it with the same intention as the work I need to get done. I don’t watch TV mindlessly at all anymore in fact its a rarity. I make time to relax very deliberately and decide when I am taking time off to just rest. This allows my body to relax and my mind to take a break. And as we all know, the best ideas come to us when we are relaxing and doing something completely different than working.
Inspiration — I actively search for inspiration all over. I read more, watch educational videos and hear to podcasts with inspiring people every day. I try to realize positive messages from many completely different sources on a daily basis. I also conjointly actively try to think differently about things around me and to come up with new ideas just to train my brain. Whenever I begin feeling bored, restless or notice that negative thoughts are taking over my brain space, I call on a close friend that will take me to get my thoughts back on a more helpful track.
Focus — When I work on my creative assessments, I try to be engaged in that one task. Of course, I am not perpetually able to keep fully targeted, however, I do believe that most of us have at least one thing we like to do and that we can concentrate on for hours at a time. For me, it’s working with my intimate writes. Once I immerse myself into that, I am lost for most of the day. Although I am extremely concentrated, it is still restful for the brain, as I block everything else out and avoid that monkey brain chatter and negative thoughts that otherwise could also be jumping around in my head.
Routines & Practices — I have set up at least ten new small daily routines, which help me to be efficient and focused on what I want to accomplish. The routines save time and also increase my overall happiness. They give my days some structure. Even on days when I don’t get anything else done, I still feel better about myself, because at least I have stuck to my routines and practices. They include a short exercise, meditation, writing a gratitude list, keeping track of my progress with regards to specific goals, checking my vision board and daily walking. Even when traveling, feeling sick, being stressed out at work or when other things happen that throw me off my regular schedule.
Forgiveness — If I screw up, stress out, feel angry, feel uninspired, bored, lazy or just off-balance, I forgive myself and move on. All is not lost just because I had a bad day. I have gotten better at picking myself up, dusting myself off and focusing on the next step.
If I do not take care of other ways, then all of the above will not be very helpful. To build strength, I make sure to move my body when I can, eat well and surround myself with positive messages and people as much as possible. I treat myself for a beautiful environment, good food and reflection time. I try to actively think about taking the time to enjoy short moments. It is a beautiful sunset, a big cup of coffee, a meal with a friend and a good book that our happiness is waiting for us. And of course, feeling happy is a great incentive to maintain the brain's muscles.
