ENRICH YOUR LIFE

Jul 24, 2017 | Blog

Your life will be measurably enriched when you become more deeply engaged with people and your living environment.

Want to take action? Try this:

Becoming aware of these pre-judgements may be difficult, but a helpful way to hunt them down is to attune yourself to being aware of saying something like: “They always…”” They never…“ ”Everyone knows…” ‘’Women/men always ….’’ ‘’That’s management for you …’’ ‘’They will never …’’

Then challenge yourself: “Is this really so…? Everyone…? All…? Never…?’’

 

Or this:

Describe the outcome you want to achieve in the most exciting and inspiring way by what you will see, what you will hear, and what you will feel when it finally happens. Then hold this vision in mind whilst carrying out the mundane tasks that will transform it into a reality.

Or this:

Instead of reverting to anger and scolding to let someone know that they have done something wrong, rather choose to let them know that their behaviour may have been unhelpful but that they are still valuable as a person.

Your wording could be something like this:

I appreciate ……………about you. I appreciate having you on the team. Unfortunately I was disappointed when you ……… The standards that you need to uphold are …….…  Is there anything else you need from me to helpyou get back on form?

Or this:

Maybe your actions won’t change the world, but they certainly will change your life. Every action you take, based on your conscience, contributes to building the substance of who you are.

So what action is it going to be for you? Tiding your desk each day? Finding a recycling site to deposit your collected glass and paper? Joining a community ‘tidy-up’ scheme with your children?

Think of something that is important to you and start today.

Or this:

Usually before we act we want to be well informed. Unfortunately, the ecological hype has been around for a while, so it’s easy to become immune to anything ‘environmental’. Now is the time to become more engaged by starting with your own research.  You-Tube is filled with great environmental documentaries. You could start with this one; Paradise or Oblivion

It’s been one helluva year – holiday season is almost here!

It’s been one helluva year, 2020. And so, as it gradually draws to a close, many South Africans will be looking forward to the holiday season. This is typically the time to switch your mind off work, prepare for the festive season, just chill, or hang-out with friends. Typically it is also the time when we spend more money on gifts, parties, spending our bonuses (for those lucky enough to receive such a blessing) on luxury items, or new clothes, or going away on holiday.

Act to seek out such suffering – it may be hiding in that very women or child in front of you. Fear and pain are hidden within victims of violence. They often tend to remain silent about their shame, pain and fear. They are likely to be all around; in a meeting, queueing in the canteen, or rubbing shoulders in a taxi. So reach out with kindness and love – you may prevent a trauma, even save a life, and help restore hope and belief in life.

Feeling worn out with low tolerance?

Feeling worn out with low tolerance?

When it comes to cultivating resilience, the magic is in the very first step.
When cultivating your resilience become aware of your mental and emotional state. Remember that if you get into an anxious, or even angry ‘state’, you can easily go into a downward spiral where the negative feeling gets stronger. That’s called a ‘feedback loop’.

In these challenging times you could be feeling worn-out and experiencing low tolerance. Yes, we have also been warned that we will all be facing unexpected challenges for some time. So how do you navigate these stormy waters?
