Is Mere Existence Enough? Start Living Today

07 Dec, 2013 0 comments All life areas

Everyone gets the same 24 hours in a day, and we try to fit everything we want and need to do in this short amount of time. For the next 30 seconds, slow down and ask yourself, am I really living the life I have been blessed with? Am I making the most of it? Too often, we confuse mere existence with living itself and this is where the distinction lies. To exist is to be alive in physical being, to live is to be alive in mental, emotional and spiritual being as well. Every once in a while, it’s a good idea to sit down and evaluate where you are going – is it where you want to be, or is it simply someone else who is calling the shots for you? In the handful of days we have to share with others, to be happy and live the life we have been given, it is important to create our own circumstances to the best of our ability and start living rather than merely existing as just another person in the crowd. Make your life more worthwhile and purposeful today:

Simple Living : Declutter the Intelligent Way

18 Feb, 2012 0 comments All life areas

Clutter , be it at the workplace or at home can be one of the hardest things to get rid off. For those of you trying to fight your hoarding habits, the prospect of throwing away junk can be stressful because you don’t know where to start. Moreover, the more clutter you have around you, the more prone you are to procrastinate the act of cleaning it. This is something almost everyone experiences at some point. However, getting rid of clutter is more about the mental preparedness and will to clean up, rather than the actual act of throwing things we don’t need anymore. The “I’ll use it later” or the “I’ll declutter in the spring break” are all ways in which we try to convince ourselves that something needs to be kept, or that the clean up can be done later.

Start Your Year with Lifestyle Design

What is Lifestyle Design?

Lifestyle design is about societal non-conformity and taking complete control of what you do in your life–and how you do it. Lifestyle design asks you one question – What do you want to do in life? We all have ideas of what we should be doing in life, given our financial conditions, our educational qualifications, the city we live in, etc. However, for a person who is engaged in lifestyle design, the want is more important than the should. Society at large has all kinds of expectations as we move into adulthood. Once done with school and college, we settle into the same pattern of finding a job, working 9-5 every day for 5 out of 7 days a week and making money. Eventually, we manage to fit in love and relationships and start a family. But lifestyle design forces us to rethink this pattern. Is it necessary to do what we think makes an ideal life, or can we not live life our way, the carefree existence we all dream of? Lifestyle design is all about living with freedom of choice, outside the conventional work environment, using travel to widen our horizons and learn more. All it takes is clarity about your goals and ideal way of life and a willingness to work towards those goals.

We all want to be included in the fast-paced world of today, but often in the process, we sacrifice our uniqueness in order to be something we are not.

This form of consciousness comes naturally to some people, but the majority of us need to consciously stop and reevaluate our lives in order to get in touch with what is best for us. Here’s how you can start:
