May we be able to see this through till Self Love Club #500! This piece marks 50 pearls of wisdom from my Self-love club. It calls for a little Yay!
The Buddha said, “You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection”. Word. Let’s keep it going!
1. Adopt a magic word
For me, it is Impermanence, and I have it inked on my wrist to always remind myself that when things happen. We need reminders all the time, we are only human.
2. Live in a tidy space
It ups your efficiency, and when everything has energy, you do not want anything to be stuck anywhere. You deserve a clean, neat and tidy place.
3. Do not put things off
If you ever get to see what comes into my Whatsapp, you will see me acting on it right away or put a note to do it later. It is merely because I have forgotten about things when I put it off!
4. Do not dwell on the past
You do not live there. Google that, and you will see 35,600,000 results. From all religion and all sort of sources. Need I say more?
5. Begin yoga or meditation
Meditation saved my life. There will be another piece on this soon, I promise. In the meantime, the Chinese say stretching can bring longevity. You get where I am going? Do something that your future self will thank you for.
6. Do not compare yourself to others
On the contrary, when we notice someone doing better than us, we should genuinely adopt the rejoice mentality, and you will see that you will start doing better. Trial, tested and proven.
7. Do not judge
Confusious said, “Don’t do unto others what you don’t want done unto you.” Everyone has a story. With this understanding, magic can happen, and it has to start with us making that change ourselves.
8. Make lists
I am a fan of this, and I always feel that it helps me calm down even though there may be overwhelming things awaiting.
9. Watch the clouds
Before the car went into the tunnel, I saw the beautiful rows of trees and the sky with its fluffy clouds in the middle; it was a therapeutic sight. When was the last time we looked away from our devices or when was the last time we looked up into the sky?
10. Simplify your schedule
I am the queen of that because I follow a pretty fixed one for the past 15 years. Do check out my other pieces on this!
