Take few moments to think about few small questions ” What do you feel about your life, is it easy or hard? Are you fulfilling your needs or your endless desires? Do you think you can work less and enjoy your life a bit more? What are your thoughts about a life which would be less tiring and more relaxing?”.
We live in a world where most of the people are working hard but not getting enough, or getting enough but not satisfied with their life standards. The standards of basic human needs have gone too high, but no one is willing to ask “Is this normal?”, or there is something basic wrong. Most people work 8-12 hrs per day but still feel lagging behind. Financial insecurities are growing more and more.
In this time of great fear and stress, there are some tips which if we follow can definitely help us in making our life easy. Here are these 3 tips.
- Think About Your Needs First, Not Desires:
What do we need to survive? Food, Shelter and Health. These are our survival tools, and unfortunately we have made our survival so luxurious that now it feels very hard to meet our basic survival needs. Everyday more and more artificial and junk food coming to market with glamorous advertisement. Now food is not meant for nutrition, it meant to show our social status. The more junk food we take, the more we sick we become, now we will be needing medicines to restore our basic health, and the more medicines we take the more side effects these medicines have. And the cycle continues with one thing leading to another making our life more and more difficult.
Most people are now looking to have a house like Taj Mahal. People don’t understand whether they live in a house of one room or 1000 rooms, they will remain the same people. A house does not change “Who You Are”. Most people work throughout their life to have a Dream House of their own without thinking once how much space they need.
Now is the time to think what are our basic needs and how we can fulfill these needs without making our life difficult.
- Find A Solution:
If you want to make your life easy, find solution to your problems. Most to us go on without solving the issues which arise in our lives. And the more we negate the problems, the bigger these problems become. A time comes when we feel that the problem is too big to handle, and it lead us ultimately to depression and anxiety making our life more hard.
A wise person is the one who is ready to find solution. Your life will become easy if you go in life with problem solving approach. If you stuck in the point why this happen, why that happen, why I am the victim, why every bad thing happen to me, then this approach towards life will destroy your life and you will be unable to find a way out.
- Make Peace With Your Surroundings:
Most people are very much unhappy with their surroundings. They are always complaining how nothing is good in their life, how people are manipulating them, how no body care about them and so on. Most people don’t understand that they cannot control everything in their surroundings, but they can definitely control their reactions to their surroundings in a healthy way.
Their is no such thing as ideal in life, there is always room for some improvement. There are always some rough patches, there are always some people with whom you are not comfortable, there are always deficient resources. But that’s the way it is. If you make peace with your surroundings, life will be easy for you and you will be able to contribute in a healthy way. If you are ungrateful all the time, always complaining, then the life of only one person will be difficult, and that’s You. Choice is Yours.
Life is like a river, always flowing. If you want your life to be easy, just accept and go with the flow of river. If you go simple, life will be simple and easy. Just know what are your needs, build your capacity to fulfill your needs, be ready to find solution to your problems, and make peace with your surroundings.
