Rest / Unplug

When you’re hungry, eat.

When you’re thirsty, drink.

When you’re tired, rest.

Even your phone needs to recharge.

Rest is a fundamental part of health, happiness and success.

Rest helps us heal the body, boost creativity, reduce stress, improve productivity, and enhance decision making.

Take short naps throughout the day.

Close your eyes & take some deep breaths.

Take your eyes off the screen for awhile (phone, laptop…).

Connect with nature.

“Rest and self care are so important. When you take time to replenish your spirit, it allows you to serve others from the overflow. You cannot serve from an empty vessel.” – Eleanor Brown

Rest well!

If you don’t like where you are, move. You are not a tree. 🌲

For me, this quote is deep-rooted (no pun intended) in my life motto.

At 15, I wasn’t performing well academically and didn’t like the school where I was at, so I asked my parents to move me to another school – in Australia. That shook things up and I had no choice but trying my hardest to study English and a whole new system.

Last year, I was part of a volunteering team where I was disrespected and humiliated in front of many people by my supervisor. We were meant to work together as a team. I left the next day after telling them how I felt.

My brother and I went to see a movie where the people behind us were talking loudly. We’d politely asked them to keep the noise down and they continued to talk to each other. So we moved to the front where it was quiet – after checking to make sure that the seats were available.

At times it feels like we have no choice but staying in the same job that we don’t enjoy for many years, being in the same living condition that is uncomfortable, having the same circle of friends that we’ve grown out of, speaking up for ourselves and others etc. We are afraid of leaving as we fear of the unknown or people might judge us.

But we always have a choice – a choice to be happy in doing what we want in life!

Definitely not a tree!

Be water

What is water?

Soft & flexible yet strong & powerful.

The driving force of all nature.

Takes the shape of its container.

Cuts through rocks because of its persistence.

Comes in various forms liquid, solid & gas.

You – are made up of water.

Take all the time that you need to think about that. 💧💙

Flowers 💐

You can buy yourself flowers. And enjoy them too!

How often do you bring flowers to others to show your love and appreciation.

What about yourself?

You too deserve all the love and appreciation that you give to others.

Go on, buy yourself some flowers, today.

Just breathe

Wanna learn a strategy to help you stay calm and relaxed throughout the day?

Here it is:

Find a place to sit (or stand still)

Eyes can be open (or closed)

Focus on the breath

Inhale slowly

Pause

Exhale slowly

Pause

Continue with the cycle 5-10 times

Now open your eyes.

Hope that was good 😌
