You wake up in the morning. You look outside your window and you see dark clouds looming in the sky. By the glimpse of it, you know right away that it is going to be a long gloomy day. On your way to work, someone recklessly cut in front of your car on the road. You got furious and you spent the rest of the day in a bad mood.
Some of us have issues with co-workers or team mates at work and this takes away our enthusiasm for going to work. You may have a work mate that stresses you out and you don’t know what to do with them anymore. If you are a leader in your work, issues related to team members not getting along well are even more problematic and can really be a headache.
Do you get mad when somebody cuts you on traffic? How about when your child does not listen to you? How about when your staff can’t get his/her work done properly? All of us encounter situations that irate us and test our patience on a daily basis. Getting angry and frustrated is normal. However, if it gets out of control, it becomes destructive on both our health and relationships with other people. Managing how to respond to such situations is a skill that all of us must have.
Do you consider yourself wise?
According to Socrates, the father of Western Philosophy, if you claimed to be a wise person, that itself made you unwise. For him, a true wise person is conscious of his/her own ignorance.
Toxins are everywhere – from the food that we eat to the things that we use. They are even in the air that we breathe and the water that we drink. Daily exposure to toxins is poisonous, harmful and dangerous to the body. It leads to sickness, diseases and even death if not flushed out from the body. We may not be able to totally avoid it but we can reduce our toxic exposures by doing things like not eating canned goods, avoiding plastic water bottles and going organic.
Life is all about balance. When you have a balanced life you feel happy, calm and contented yet motivated and driven at the same time. Highly successful people live a well-balanced life.
