Four Things that look easy but are difficult.
1. Can you relax your body for a minute?
No need to go on a retreat to the mountains—five minutes at least one minute of peace is all it takes to reap the benefits of meditation. There’s evidence that just two quick bouts of silent meditation per day can relieve stress and depression. Just stop your work concentrate on your breath, and feel those anxieties start to disappear.
This seems to be very easy... But try it...Then you realized it is not that easy.
But DO IT NOW.
“Set pace of mind your highest goal, and organize your life around it” – Brian Tracy
2. Can you smile to a stranger for a while?
The smile is the “the symbol that was rated with the highest positive emotional content”
Do you want to be the person who walks into a room and lights it up with your smile? Smiling seems to come more naturally to some people than others, but like any habit, it gets much easier with practice.
Smiling raises your spirits and makes other people happy as well - it's a very powerful expression. DO IT NOW.
3. Can you have your meals without using your phone?
In the past couple years, a mountain of studies have demonstrated that cellphone use makes us more selfish, more easily distracted and more stressed.
A survey last March suggested that nearly 9 in 10 people feel that their loved ones neglect them in favor of technology on a weekly basis. A smaller-scale observational study suggested that, when parents and young children dine together, parents frequently pay the most attention to their phones.
DO NOT TAKE YOUR PHONE with your meals
4. Can you say I Love You and hug your family member for a moment?
I Love you is the hardest thing to say when it comes to your family. Do it now.
The greatest weakness of most human is their hesitancy to tell others how much they love them while they are alive. Cherish every moment and every person in your life, because you never know when it will be the last time you see someone.
“The most important thing in this world is to learn to give out love and let it come in.” ~Morrie Schwartz
The important thing is that we do at least one tiny thing every day.
It will definitely change your life for the better.
