Stop micromanaging like a bee, listen to your intuition and take action, the most fortuitous time is now.
Here are three ways to bust the analysis paralysis and pave your way forward.
Do you find yourself sitting down late in the evening for no great cause, past your usual bedtime, when you know you should go to bed?
Do you watch TV, play a game online or scroll through social media feeling as if the Central Valley duststorms were marching straight into your eyes?
Do you basically put off going to bed thinking that you need some time for ‘you’, and miss out on valuable sleep when you don’t really know what’s keeping you up or disheartened that you’re taking unaccounted revenge from your sleep (as if you didn’t find anything or…
Been thinking about something much or for too long? Yeah, overthinking we term it. Depends on which peer group you land in, this art of thinking excessively could either fetch you a trophy or mockery.
We all have known this feeling, it’s energy-draining most times. In fact, studies have shown that overthinking elevates your stress levels, reduces your creativity, clouds your judgment and strips you of your power to make decisions.
This is when distraction becomes a savior! Else distraction has a negative connotation.
An appropriate distraction technique can help you redirect your mind when you start ruminating. Here are…
Ever thought why the universe was designed the way we experience it — in the form of birth and death cycle for humans, where “we all have our entries and exits’’ (quoting Shakespeare). Harshly speaking, evolution purposely did it so people could die after doing the job of passing on their genes to the future generations for emergence of better species.
The old is definitely gold, no doubt. Experience counts in all aspects of life, and that’s what sells in the marketplace (at least at work). But that same experience can be a breeding ground for stagnancy, adding to clichéd…
Longing for a workstation by the beach or in a nice 5-star suite overlooking the snow covered peaks? Hmmm…so you are planning a workation (if not a full vacation) at the fag end of this second wave of the pandemic? Damn….even I can’t wait for such a relishing out-of-office experience!
Here are a few tips to keep in mind when you hop on the drawing board to make your workation come true.
Ever thought who’s responsible for your productivity? If you are listing neighbours, friends, relatives, colleagues, and many more reasons around you, please walk up to a mirror and stand there for a minute. Yes buddy, you saw it right! It’s you who holds the reins of your productivity and none else. And if you are still thinking why you need to be productive, then let me remind you that you’ve got just one life to live!
So here’s a self-propagating productivity secret that you can be implemented right away, that too by yourself.
Minimalism is a tool used to rid…
Self nurturing simply refers to taking care of yourself. Oh, does it sound like being selfish or self obsession? Is that the reason people put themselves at the bottom of their list of priorities? And what happens as a result then? Burnout, exhaustion, frustration and resentment.
The truth is that we are unable to be the best of ourselves if we don’t take time out to rest, relax and renew. And if we aren’t our own best version, there is no way we can encourage others to be the best version of themselves — it creates a downward spiral, to…
Confined to four walls of your not-so-new-found home office? Feeling mundane and isolated? Look through the window of hope! Can you see the avenues of creativity opening up for you? As they say, for each door that closes, there are ninety-nine others that open.
What the conventional breaks on a routine day used to look like BC (Before Corona) are antiquities bygone — no water cooler chats, no client meetings over 4 pm coffee, no extended lunch hours, and no deskercises (exercises that can be done at the desk). …
Are you on the quest of becoming a better person? Having a fulfilled life? Being in a state of happiness? Achieving your goals? Having lovelier relationships?
If you’ve come to believe that online courses, retreats, coaches, mentors, friends, journals, blogs, etc. can be pivotal in your catharsis, you’ve terribly mistaken. YOU are the only one who has the capacity and capability to transform your life. Struggle no more, the right moment is here.
I invite you to replace the words HAVE TO with the word GET.
Sometimes, a single word can be magical.
You don’t HAVE TO finish writing that…
