My journey from obsessive-compulsive to self-centered was far from glorious but thrilling to the satisfaction that comes from growing up. From managing only to academic spelling m * i * n * d * f * u * l * n * e * s * s to make it an active lifestyle is now my personal goal.
I am close to thinking like a child curious to understand how I can make you work for me. Some questions I asked were, what would it do for me? The answer to that was – there is only one way to find out, and that is immersion.
I share 5 nuances of Thinking that have now entered my life. It took me many years of understanding and practice before I found the right language to express it and made them into ideas that are worthwhile.
Here are 5 ways to make thinking more real:
Awareness, attention, and presentation. Come to think of it, thinking has been an expectation from us for the rest of our lives.
Long before thinking became popular in a spiritual sense, the corporate world used the term extensively. ‘Note that when you make this change, it will have an impact on the bottom line,’ or board rooms that are often echoed by ‘remember we don’t have a big budget.’ commitments that remind us that there are many things to consider when making a decision, ‘therefore, do not ignore them.’
This is in line with life. Thinking means that we are awake and present and we look for every opportunity. ‘Presence’ is also no different from how our schools made us respond to the daily presence call.
So, come in yourself as often as you can – am I there when I drink this coffee or when I’m talking on the phone? The more I asked myself this question, the more I was warned about the imminent situation, and that was the first step I took. It increases your breadth of thinking like nothing else can do. And that opens the door to the possibility.
“Don’t dwell on the past, don’t dream on the future, focus on the present.” – Buddha
- Work hard, have fun and between the two, get enough sleep
Working a few hours of sleep was a proud badge that I wore like most of my colleagues when I was working very well in companies. The coffee machine was a sacred place to talk about the hours of sleep we all had last night. When a person gets older and the number of hours he or she sleeps makes them a great hero in the eyes of everyone. We thought that was what we all needed to do to grow. So, we kept campaigning – working hard, karaoke hard, and having a lot of fun.
It took me years to realize that sleep deprivation hindered my productivity, my alertness, and my emotions. Unexpectedly, I began to obey the timeless rules of sleeping on a productive day. I can’t even begin to tell how it has changed my life.
Usually you will find me happy and motivated and happy in life. I feel like laughing too much. Why haven’t I done it all these years? Well, there has never been a better response to that. But we can start now. Sleep is a gift we can give ourselves every day. So, let’s do it.
Years ago, I was working on making my own love work. It is a great start to thinking because it means we are listening more. So, here’s one thing I do: At the cashier at Zara or at any similar store, when they ask me if it’s a gift, I smile and say ‘Yes, it’s my gift.’ and. But sometimes I let them wrap you up, especially if it was underwear or bath oil.
What is happening to me? I formed a special connection with myself. Every time I opened those ‘gifts to me,’ it was a selfish gesture that reminded me that I had to wait at the counter to let them pack. That’s a little bit of a boost to thinking as you don’t rush out of the store but wait patiently, welcome the money manager, and engage in a conversation beyond giving your credit card. All of this was done with a small smile on both sides. It’s a win-win situation. This may sound innocent but it does give you a chance to ‘experience’ it.
“Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is a brave thing we have never done.” – Brené Brown
- Confidence has the legs of a runner
It can take you to places you never imagined. Make sure you start at a slow pace. Believe in the crazy, crazy thing you can do today and keep doing it. Here’s the catch, don’t expect the effect others have or what the books tell you. Do your best and be ready to accept the result of ‘your’.
- The human body is far more intelligent than the human mind
The mind can often give the wrong impression. Our mind is filled with our cultural background. Often, our decisions carry judgment rather than judgment. Prejudice and discrimination are just another ‘devil’ that causes us to dwell on negative things rather than on good things. Our mind also has an internal critique that can undermine our self-esteem and self-esteem if it continues unabated.
The body, on the other hand, has its own ability to ‘fix’ itself. A well-set femur can heal in six weeks but if someone calls us stupid 20 years ago, our internal critic does not allow us to forget that. The body is thus a very complex operating system and works the way nature works.
So, when you feel the conflict try and listen to your body. The body works with the same precision as nature. They are both doing their job carefully, slowly, and slowly. The tree takes 20 years to grow, just as training our lungs to breathe completely can take a few years.
But this kind of gradual change cannot be fixed. Just as we cannot turn a fully grown tree into a baby tree, so a wise body does not forget to breathe deeply. The slower but more sensible approach to the body is quite different and is one reason why doctors may not be able to speed up the healing process and recovery after surgery. We must allow the body to take time.
So, the next time you feel conflict – try and listen to your body and the thoughts that don’t keep your chest or the knot of your stomach ‘usually’ the one you should go with.
Thoughts are closed
Life is a series of events that were not followed in the same way as we thought when we read the 7 bedtime books. I now believe that in 24-hour cycles, things are going the way we wanted or they can either go completely. No matter, in those little moments that lie in our growth and development. Let’s continue to make thinking work.
