Creating Calm

Modern life can be exhausting. Trying to create greater calm is the antidote. But this antidote doesn’t happen by itself. We have to actively cultivate it.

We are all black-belt experts in busyness. Our minds have never been so busy. We get bombarded with information from our media and our focus is usually on fixed on what’s coming up or what we have to do next. Our mental chatter adds to the load. We worry about all the worst things that can happen in the future. Or we ruminate about things that have happened in the past. No wonder we are all so tired.

Rest Don’t Sleep

A subtle but powerful shift in our mind-set could help us get a better night’s sleep. Research data tells us that about 30% of us get less than six hours sleep every night. This is linked to an increased risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and obesity.

Now many people don’t give themselves enough opportunity to sleep. You can be the best sleeper in the world, but if you have to be up early and don’t get to bed on time, then you won’t get enough sleep. Many people just need to get to bed earlier.

The Power of Yet

The research of the American Professor, Carol Dweck, suggests that there are two fundamental approaches which we can use when we encounter difficult learning or life challenges. One of these approaches will serve you well and carry you to many successes in life. The other will keep you stuck. 

Talking to Yourself - In a Good Way

We all worry if we catch ourselves talking to ourselves. It’s said to be the first step to madness. But, in a recent article in the Harvard Business Review, leadership experts Jack Zenger and Joseph Folkman propose that, in some contexts, talking aloud to yourself can be really helpful. In fact, they claim that it helped 92% of people they worked with to shed bad habits and become more successful.

Breathing and our Presence of Mind

We tend to underestimate the power of our breath in helping us deal with stressful events. But, used properly, our breathing can transform our experience and help us navigate through some of life’s biggest challenges. We underestimate our breathing because we do it all the time. However, at some level, most of us are aware that taking a few deep breaths when we are afraid or angry can be helpful.
 

5 Seconds That Could Change Your Life

According to American life-coach Mel Robbins, a simple intriguing countdown technique can help us achieve our true potential. This technique attempts to help us solve a fundamental human problem. That is, we all have great ideas about the kind of life we want and the things we want to achieve. However, and here’s the catch, whenever we decide to take action we often don’t feel like doing it!

Getting a Grip on Smartphones

We are all becoming increasingly aware of the impact of smartphones in our lives. They are truly amazing inventions. A phone, a camera, a message system, a portal to all the knowledge in the world, a social meeting place, a map, a music and video player and countless other games and online tools. But the cost is that they are becoming increasingly addictive. Like all addictions, they get in the way of being able to live a rich and rewarding life. We check them first thing in the morning and last thing at night.
