“Begin at once to live, and count each separate day as a separate life.” Serena
Year 2016 is coming to an end and 2017 is waiting to be embraced. Looking back are you satisfied with the amount of efforts you have given to 2016.Do you really wish things could be little different, if you have done something else. Less of procrastination, more of meditation.
We clearly hold ourselves from growing. We think that there is unlimited time in the world and we will live forever.We find it hard to clean the dust of laziness as at first it seems to be less and when it becomes more we succumb to the pressure.We let go away our dreams instead of chasing them. More ever we become quite comfortable in our present self and hardly think about taking any risk.
However, life is a blessing and each moment is precious.Why should memories be created only during holidays? Why should we not live consciously each day?
How to live consciously each day
“A life lived of choice is a life of conscious action. A life lived of chance is a life of unconscious creation.”
– Neale Donald Walsch
- Keep reflecting on your goal and your accomplishment: Keep a journal where you write about the things you are doing and love to continue doing. Things that you don’t like and are trying to stop doing. Everything great or small, write about the things that occupy your precious time.Make a plan about how will you achieve your goals. How can you discontinue things that you don’t like and how can you spend more time on the things you like.
- Reflect on your daily actions: So, you had an argument and you shouted and made sure to defeat the other person by embarrassing them in every way possible. Though you might have won but you have lost one step towards living consciously. Be aware of what speak. Instead of trying to win an argument by anger and showing tantrums, try to win it with logic.Reflect hard on how to speak and what to speak. Try not to reply immediately when in anger. Instead let the moment slip and then think and reply.
- Review how you spend time: I love reading and can spend whole day reading online or a good book.However with so much material available online, we should really check on how we spend time. There is a time to gain knowledge and a time to apply to. We should maintain a balance and really be careful on our choices.
- Review how you spend your money:Don’t spend on your impluse. Think hard before you spend. Understand the difference between want and need. Do you really need that thing or it is just your want created by Marketing stuff.Be wise and spend.
