You must have heard this a thousand times that life is hard or life is unfair and many more things.
I don’t agree with any of this statement. I think we make life hard by bringing a lot of complications, by setting unreal standards, by working for materialistic possessions.
How does life get to put so much pressure on us?
I think you got the answer to this question in the first paragraph itself. It’s not life, it’s you.
But, if you still feel the pressure each day then how can it be reduced or completely removed?
I hope you will find the answer to this by the end of this small yet effective blog post.
Let us talk about a number of things that can be done in order to lead a life that does not feel like a punishment.
I’ve kept meditation at the top because it actually works. I have experienced it myself and people all over the world meditate to lower down stress level and start thinking properly. Meditation is directly proportional to inner peace and lower pressure from life.
Start meditating for at least 10 minutes after you wake up and before you go to bed. You will feel the difference within the first week of starting this practice. Add this to your daily routine and increase the time as you start to get comfortable.
Meditation will allow you to clear your mind. Find youtube videos and read blogs on how to start meditating.
We are all looking for happiness in one way or other. But, are you looking in the right place?
Another way to reduce pressure from yourself is to find happiness. To be clear, happiness cannot be achieved by getting a new car or owning a house. They are all short-term happiness. Long-term happiness can only be achieved by making others happy and by helping others.
You can own a big house by the lake and have hundreds of fake people around you but they cannot give you real happiness. Real happiness can even be enjoyed in a small house with just 10 people around you. Interact with everyone, not just for the sake of benefitting yourself, but for understanding them and listening to others problem. If you bring a smile to someones face they will try to bring a smile to your face every chance that they get.
3. Love what you do
You have heard this, read about this and you are most probably tired of hearing this. You don’t have to start your own business in order to love your work. You can start loving your current job, in your current position and still be happy.
Most of our pressure comes from work. Still, we do nothing in order to improve or change some things. If you are struggling with your work then I would suggest you read The Leader who had no title (Amazon Link)
This book will change the way you look at your work and start loving your job. It’s always the small things that matter, while we are always focusing on the big things.
If you follow all three steps, I’m 100% sure that you will see the transformation happen in your life. You will be more relaxed and less stressful. The ultimate goal is to find yourself and start loving yourself and everything that you do.
I hope this was helpful and if you think anyone needs to read this then share this with your friends and family who are also facing the same problems.
