Your health. Your mental health. Your well-being. Your boundaries. Your bliss. Your happiness. Your self love. Your self worth. Your self respect. Your purpose. Your goals. Your much needed rest. Your piece of peace.
1. Take 15 minutes a day to self-reflect. 2. Do at least 1 tough thing every day, it could be a 45 minutes workout or 5km run or procrastination from certain things. 3. Give up one bad habit that’s bugging you. 4. Develop positive self-talk. 5. Identify challenges and set goals. 6. Identify your strengths and weaknesses. 7. Journal daily: record what you have gratitude for. 8. Write down 10 ideas every day & read 20 pages everyday: this will build your mind muscle. 9. Take care of your physical health & eat right. 10. Create a healthy environment for you to thrive.
People today get bored of everything very easily, their mobile, their close ones, their partner, their job, their car, their life in general.
The problem is that people have become so impatient, they want newness at every step of life. The truth is that this is not practically possible and living life this way is only going to lead to problems and sadness.
Patience has always been one of the strongest virtues and it is most significant in the present day world. Run after whatever it is that you want to, but don’t run away from everything. As you’ll soon find out, there is no where you can run away to. Try to cherish and enjoy whatever you have while trying to get more out of life.
1. Go after dreams, not people. 2. Love yourself and the rest will follow. 3. Never lose your sense of wonder. 4. You are capable of more than you know. 5. No regrets in life, just lessons learned. 6. Your only limit is you. 7. Life goes by in a blink of an eye, so live life.
Not a diet. Not a lifestyle. Not for anyone, but for me. Not for a day, but everyday. Not to feel good in a specific outfit, but to feel good in my skin. Not for the beach, but for my mind. Not for a competition, but for THE COMPETITION i have created for myself, by myself, to become a better version of myself.
You are allowed to fail. You are allowed to start again from scratch. You are allowed to change your mind. You are allowed to try over and over again. You are allowed to struggle. No path is ever a perfectly straight line. Your path will twist and turn in directions you never expected. It will bring you unexpected highs and lows that make you stronger.
You don’t need to have it all figured out right now. Because you will get where you are meant to go in time.
TOUGH TIMES NEVER LAST, BUT TOUGH PEOPLE DO. (Not my words.)
Stop comparing. Start living your unique journey. You need to ignore what everyone else is doing and achieving. Your life is about breaking your own limits and outgrowing yourself to live your best life. You are not in competition with anyone else. Plan to outdo your past, not other people.
Understand this: You can sound confident and have anxiety. You can look healthy but feel like shit. You can look happy and be miserable inside. You can be good looking and feel ugly. So be kind. BE KIND because every person is fighting a battle you know nothing about.
All we have is now. I’ve learned that after so many mistakes, mishaps, failures & success. Please don’t regret for your past, that fixes nothing. I had so many regrets in my life because I wasn’t living in the moment. I wasn’t present in what I was doing.
Set aside all distractions, come out from behind your phone or computer, and enjoy the moment for exactly what is. Life is exactly like that. You have to get it all & appreciate it. Be here now.
My primary goal in life is to feel vibrant and alive, inside and out. Mentally, emotionally, spiritually & physically. I’ve been unhappy enough to know that I only want joy+peace to surround and flow through me.
Buy the black car, People will say you should’ve got blue. Start a business, People will say you should’ve got a job. Get married, People will say you picked the wrong partner. Learn a trade, People will say you should’ve done something else.
Everyone has an opinion about everything. You’ll go crazy trying to please everyone. Don’t even try. Listen, smile, agree. And then do whatever the fuck you were gonna do anyway.
When your mental health isn’t in the best state, give yourself a break.
Don’t feel guilty for things you can’t do. Normal things like eating, sleeping or socialising may be difficult, it’s okay to struggle. Rest, recover, be kind to yourself and know the bad times are temporary.
The world is filled with people who, no matter what you do, will point blank not like you. But it is also filled with those who will love you fiercely. They are your people. You are not for everyone and that’s OK. Talk to the people who can hear you.
Don’t waste your precious time and gifts trying to convince them of your value, they won’t ever want what you’re selling. Don’t convince them to walk alongside you. You’ll be wasting both your time and theirs and will likely inflict unnecessary wounds, which will take precious time to heal. You are not for them and they are not for you; politely wave them on, and continue along your way. Sharing your path with someone is a sacred gift; don’t cheapen this gift by rolling yours in the wrong direction.
Keep facing your true north. YOU ARE NOT FOR EVERYONE.
When your mental health isn’t in the best state, give yourself a break. Don’t feel guilty for things you can’t do. Normal things like eating, sleeping or socialising may be difficult, it’s okay to struggle. Rest, recover, be kind to yourself and know the bad times are temporary.
I know people who graduated college at 21, and didn’t get a salary job until they were 27. I know people who graduated at 25 and already had a salary job. I know people who have children and are single. I know people who are married and had to wait 8-10 years to be parents. I know people who are in a relationship and love someone else. I know people who love each other and aren’t together. There are people waiting to love and be loved. My point is, everything in life happens according to our time, our clock. You may look at your friends and some may seem to be ahead or behind you, but they’re not, they’re living according to the pace of their clock, so be patient.
You’re not falling behind, it’s just not your time. (Not my words.)
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. I shared it just because i like this one. Very few will understand where this song is heading.)
Don’t lower your frequency to play games and become a part of an inconsistent toxic cycle. Revenge depletes your energy and steals from you. Move forward. What you remove your attention from will cease to exist.
Get better. Attract better. You are too great to entertain such energies. BE YOU & STRIVE TO BE A BETTER VERSION OF YOURSELF.
Just because someone has treated you unkindly doesn’t mean you are unworthy of kindness. Just because someone has made you feel unloved doesn’t mean you don’t deserve love. Remember when someone says hurtful things to you or acts in a way that hurts your heart, they are only showing the hurt they are carrying within themselves. Their action reflects who they are, not what you deserve.
HAPPINESS is a choice, not a result. Nothing will make you happy until you choose to be happy. No person will make you happy unless you decide to be happy. Your HAPPINESS will not come to you. It can only come from you.
Everything always ends up working out. Sometimes even bigger and better than you can imagine right now. Remember this when you feel like you’re in a hard place or you feel like you’re being challenged the most. Believe in where you’re headed. See the bigger picture.
Your anger? It’s telling you where you feel powerless. Your anxiety? It’s telling you that something in your life is off balance. Your fear? It’s telling you what you care about. Your apathy? It’s telling you where you’re overextended and burnt out.
Your feelings aren’t random, they are messengers. And if you want to get anywhere, you need to be able to let them speak to you, and tell you what you really need.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. Adults seeking advice from elementary school kids on how to cope up with life, literally the world is losing it’s sense of balance. Thinking of kids, this is more than cute in my eyes. I asked my friend Frank’s 20 month old nephew what he wants to eat when we were in supermarket. He replied; “EVERYTHING IN THAT” while pointing his finger to the ice cream freezer. Why can’t adults be this simple as kids!! LIFE IS FUN, LET IT BE.)
No matter what you’re going through, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. It may seem hard to get to it, but you can do it. Just keep working toward it and you’ll find the positive side of things. I’ve realized that I can always find something to look forward to. Big or small, it helps to get me through those rough patches.
Remember that the bad will pass and soon you’ll make it through to the other side.
When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one that has opened for us. -ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL.
It’s easy to look back and question decisions you have made in the past, but it’s unfair to punish yourself for them. You can’t blame yourself for not knowing back then what you know now, and the truth is you made each decision for a reason, based on how you were feeling at the time.
As we grow up we learn and we evolve. Maybe the person you are now would have done things differently back then, or maybe you are the person you are now, because of the decisions you made back then. Trust your journey, it’s all going to make sense soon.
You are a luxury. Remember that. You are a luxury high end commodity. Nothing less. Only the richest can afford you. You make people look like they’ve made good choices. You make them look more attractive. You make them feel powerful. You give them status. You are a luxury. Remember that.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above the. Point blank it’s one of my favourite songs from 2021. You are allowed to laugh at the lyrics, i like SNL for good reasons.)
Don’t settle for allowing your life to simply be okay or fine or even just good. Make it extraordinary. Make it thrilling. Make it spectacular. Fill it with excitement and passion, adventures and opportunities. You only get one beautiful life, make it magical and above all else, make it yours.
It’s easy to judge. It’s more difficult to understand. Understanding requires compassion, patience, and a willingness to believe that good hearts sometimes choose poor methods. Through judging, we separate. Through understanding, we grow.
Stop overthinking and replaying episodes from your past you are not happy about. Realize that everything happens for a reason. It served its purpose. It made you better. Only through experience we can truly feel and understand the contrast of what is good and what is not, what we want and what we don’t want.
Experiences teaches us most valuable lessons. It helps us grow, love ourselves and have empathy towards others. Be grateful for your experiences, but move forward. Embrace the new & remain consistent in your walk of life. (Not my words.)
We deserve to experience all forms of love. The people who act the most hateful and unworthy of being loved are the ones who were deprived of it growing up. It’s up to each and everyone of us to make sure we are giving those around us as much love as we are giving ourselves. The people who seem hateful and toxic are not necessarily people you should spend time with, but at the very least send them your positive thoughts before you bid a bye.
Be grateful that you are able to feel, experience, give, and receive love. It is such a blessing. No one deserves anything less than being loved.
By OVERTHINKING we often create problems that aren’t even there. Maybe you should stop overthinking so much and trust the way life happens. Things change. Every year you grow into someone else. Every year you have the opportunity to start over again and begin, to rise and face the world the way that you want to. Take this with you, you beautiful human being.
Don’t be afraid to fail. Don’t be afraid to fall. Don’t be afraid to get your heart broken. Don’t be afraid at all. The fear is in your head. The doubt is in your heart. And regret survives in the memory. That is, if you feed it, if you give into it. So please, before you go, remember overthinking is a self-inflicting act. It is the suicide, the doubt of self, the tragedy no one understands. It is instant death without lifting a single sword. So don’t give in to it, you know you’re stronger than that and capable of so much more.
SELF-CARE isn’t just holidays, sauna and massages. It’s working on your habits, mindset and healing your past. It’s removing toxic thoughts, inconsistent people and nasty places from your life. It’s living intentionally, purposefully and consciously.
Your competition is; your procrastination, your ego, the unhealthy food you’re consuming, the knowledge you neglect, the negative behaviour you’re nurturing & your lack of creativity.
COMPETE AGAINST THAT.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. Inflation has gone higher everywhere. But i really don’t know why nobody is talking about new raise in council taxes, water bills & road tax. In UK, there’s a road tax you have to pay once every 6 months if you own a car. And water bill is also paid in every 6 months. Council tax you have to pay every month even if it’s a rented property. Post brexit all bills shot up abnormally. Today government announced 150💷 temporary council tax rebate for tax band A to D, i don’t think it’s helping anyone amid power/energy price hike & new tax slab changes.)
It’s so easy to beat ourselves up for mistakes we’ve made in the past. Mistakes are part of being human and they are part of being alive. Our mistakes are blessings and opportunities to keep learning and expanding. But even when you learn from your mistakes don’t expect to never make another, you will and that’s okay.
Keep growing and embrace each challenge as a chance to learn something new and you will be amazed by how easy it is to move on. Stay consistent in your walk of life & don’t be afraid to make new mistakes. Mistakes are nothing more than opportunities to learn, grow, and better our future.
Our preference for instant gratification reveals an important truth about success: because of how we are wired, most people will spend all day chasing quick hits of satisfaction.
The road less traveled is the road of delayed gratification. If you’re willing to wait for the rewards, you’ll face less competition and often get a bigger payoff. As the saying goes; the last mile is always the least crowded.
STAY CONSISTENT & ENJOY THE JOURNEY.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. Watch it for fun. Get a tiny insight towards a peaceful life.)
DON’T SETTLE. Turn off shitty movies. If a conversation’s dead, cut it. If the meal’s shitty, avoid the restaurant. If you’re not on the right path, simply get off it. Don’t entertain what doesn’t entertain you.
Hate no one, no matter how much they’ve wronged you. Live humbly, no matter how rich you become. Think positively, no matter how hard life is. Give much, even if you’ve been given little. Forgive all, especially yourself. And never stop praying & wishing the best for everyone. There’s no bigger form of wealth compared to GOOD WISHES.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. It’s about omicron variant. And so many people are testing postive even after getting vaccinated. See this video to get little knowledge about what’s next. It’s more transmissive, but less lethal. Still follow the government guidelines & take care of yourself.)
Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right. Forget about those who don’t. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would most likely be worth it.
Each and every one of us has a different beginning to our story. Our lives all start in different places, but when we dedicate our hearts and minds to what we are most passionate about, there is no stopping us. Reward and success are measured by how much you try and how much you receive.
Be proud of who you are and where you came from. Look forward to wherever it is you are going and who it is you want to be.
It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be. -J. K. ROWLING
I know that everybody worries about what’s coming next, but in my experience it doesn’t do any good. It just makes you more stressed out and usually you’re just worrying about things that may never even happen. Today and this moment is all we have, so stay present and focused and count your blessings for today and trust that the rest will fall into place.
Count your blessings today. No need to worry about tomorrow, when we’ve been blessed with today. (Not my words.)
Listen to that little voice inside yourself, like a loving parent or a good friend. This is the truest part of your soul, the key to your happiness. Sometimes thoughts, fears, or other people get too loud and we can’t hear ourselves. Do what you need to do to get back in touch.
Today, follow what your heart tells you. Nobody but you knows what is right for you, so listen to your instincts.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. I talk very little about games even though i play Xbox games almost every weekend for 1-2 hours. This game trailer looks amazing. Happy to see video game developers connecting cultures & deities.)
People settle because they’re afraid something better won’t come along. They fear they aren’t good enough. You are worth exactly what you want in life, but you have to believe it or you won’t attract something better.
Take a moment to realize your worth. Don’t ever settle.
The body has limitations. The mind has not. We focus so much on what goes on from the neck down, that we forget it all starts from here in mind. Everything starts there. If you are not mentally ready, you’re not physically prepared. And that’s where the preparation starts.
We all want to be liked and loved, but when we focus on this instead of making sure we love ourselves first, we get lost in other people’s opinions and we stop living honestly. If someone calls you a name, don’t let it bother you, don’t react. Feeding into their drama will only negatively affect your character.
What makes you special and unique? Think about one of your eccentricities and embrace it every day. When we are consumed by what other people think of us, we allow them to dictate how we live our lives, and then without realizing it, we lose touch with who we are. Respect your individuality. BE YOU.
Everyone knows that they’re not supposed to procrastinate but we all do it every now and again. The more things you put off, the more will build up and you will just feel out of control and stressed. Manage and prioritize your time and tasks.
Procrastination is like a credit card: it’s a lot of fun until you get the bill. -CHRISTOPHER PARKER.
I like meeting new people, it’s fun but i hardly take them seriously. Let’s say I like meeting new people, but i don’t like making new friends. Most people are inconsistent+liars which bums my mood, that’s just cheap in my eyes and i struggle to trust such morons. I already have little over a dozen amazing friends who are my friends since 14th century or past life. That’s the reason I never miss attention or affection. Remember: The only proof your people are real with you is whether they are consistent with their approach towards you. Rest others are there just for nothing – mental drain to be honest.
(Not a secret, i shoot my shots when she’s a peng ting. That’s the best part about being single.😜 There’s a party at Frank’s place next week. Shooting this song at my bestie DEMI, Amanda & Karo’s🍑.)
Next few lines are meant for the one who calls me SONNENPRINZ out of fun & adore. Sonnenprinz means SUN PRINCE in German. Meeting someone 7th time in 6 years, actually 4th time since May-2021. She drives 5 hours to drop me at airport & airport is just 30km away from my house.😂 I must agree that 45-minute drive from my house to airport is pure banter. I still don’t know what i am bringing to the table, but the vibe is 🔥🔥🔥🔥. I love it when a girl questions or corrects my knowledge on engineering & business. Basically i love it when someone proves me wrong. Conversations are healing & communication is a sexy thing.
Positive attitude is about seeing goodness in every situation of life. If you have food in your fridge, clothes on your body, a roof over your head and a place to sleep, you’re richer than 75% of the entire world.
If you have money in your wallet, a little change, and can go anywhere you want, you are among the top 18% of the world’s wealthy people.
If you are alive today with more health than illness, you are more blessed than the million people who will not survive this week and die.
If you can actually READ this message and understand it, you are more fortunate than the 3 billion people in the world who cannot see, cannot read or suffer mental retardation.
Life is not about complaining pain and sorrows. It’s about a thousand other reasons to be grateful and happy.
We all think about past good or bad days, then the next step is “beating yourself up in your head”. We must stop doing this to have a happy healthy state of mind.
People with strong stable mentality hold themselves accountable for their behavior. They refuse to entertain toxic self-criticism. They don’t beat themselves up when they fail or make mistakes because they know, it only harms them in the end instead. They choose a path of growth and compassion always forgiving themselves and learning from their mistakes. First step to achieve peace of mind: FORGIVE YOURSELF.
One of the worst things you can do with yourself is: Overthinking. Have you ever heard or experienced analysis paralysis? If you have, you know that overthinking leads to freezing up and whirring. If you want to be mentality strong & decisive, OVERTHINKING is your first enemy.
Mentally strong people choose not to give any energy to that negativity, they’d rather think critically and take logical action. Of course, they know that there are always risks and consequences no matter what choice they make. After all there is no perfect decision. Nonetheless be confident no matter what happens, you’ll be okay.
It’s been a while i am writing about mental health in this evening post. I try to talk about as many good/bad scenarios i have came across. Insomnia is a major issue in current young generation. Not getting enough sleep is not new. Insomnia is no joke and after some time of tossing and turning in bed, it’s easy to turn on the TV or grab your phone or tablet. But before you decide to give in, remember that skimping on sleep can seriously harm your mental health.
Sleep deprivation can cause all kinds of problems from trouble staying focused to increased irritability. And if you struggle with mental illness not getting enough sleep and make things even worse, the next time you can’t sleep put on some soothing music or try a guided meditation to help you relax. Our human body is enginnered in such a way that we need 7-8 hours healthy happy sleep every night for our optimum performance.
Financial stress can impact our mental health badly. Most of us either suffer or have suffered from the problem of “not keeping a budget”. If you don’t budget, you could be spending more than you’re making without even knowing it. It’s totally normal to stress about money, after all having enough means having security. But financial stressors are also one of the worst things when it comes to your mental health.
Budgeting is about keeping track of what you spend, but it’s also about changing your habits. If money causes you daily worry, you need to take advantage of the power you have to reduce or eliminate your financial issues. If you want to improve your mental health, consider lessening the amount of money you spend on wants, negotiating your bills for lower rates and creating an emergency fund. Financial stability is a major step towards healthy happy mindset.
Bottling up your feelings is never a good idea. While you should always respond rather than react in any given situation, you still need to take the time to process difficult emotions, like anger or sadness. Bottling up your emotions might feel easy now, but it damages your mental health and overall well-being in the long run.
If you notice that something continues to bother you, don’t let it slide, speak up. Holding grudges will always hurt you the most and as the tension and turmoil increases, so does the pressure. Eventually those bottled up emotions explode creating conflict that would have been easier to handle in small doses.
Every kind of addiction causes some harm to our sanity. When you think about addiction, you might think of alcohol or drug addiction, but there are countless other forms of addiction you could be addicted to, work, sugar, video games, drama or even a toxic relationship. No matter what your compulsion is, it will always be a barrier to your happiness. Addiction creates an insatiable appetite, the void can never be full since your desire for the object of your affection is limitless. You’ll never feel that sweet satisfaction.
Addiction only leads to a cycle of relentless hunger and dissatisfaction. To make things worse while you’re stuck in this never ending sequence of discontent, your addictions saps the energy from all other areas of your life like hobbies, passions, relationships or self-care. Recovery is a long hard road. It may be one of the most challenging experiences of your life, but it can be also the most rewarding if you want to be happier. Think about dropping your addictions.
One thing people have no idea: Testosterone levels are not just responsible for building good muscle mass & better sex drive, it’s a happiness hormone as well. Testosterone plays a major role in mental health. It makes you keep moving forward with a positive mindset.
Try following a healthy lifestyle with little workout & a proper diet. That works towards a natural testosterone rise, which will help you being happy as hell throughout the day with little reasons.
Helps and supports muscle growth while producing more energy from them.
A must for high intensity training with cardio, weight training or body weight exercises.
May help in fighting Parkinson’s disease & neurological disorders.
A good supplement to decrease the chances of diabetics & blood sugar rise.
Helps brain function & skin health by reducing fatigue and tiredness.
Precautions: Even though it’s a safe & cheap supplement, your kidneys work on filtering everything. Particulate things cause some stress on that organ.
Cure: DRINK ENOUGH WATER (3 litres at least). No matter whether you workout or follow a diet with right supplements.
