One of the basic human needs is to connect with the people around them. While it may seem simple, the act of building social connections does not come naturally. It takes a bit more effort to establish good relations with others.
How do you make friends? The first step is to express your interest in getting to learn more about others. Sometimes, people don't become successful at this because they are too busy building themselves up. They strive to make others interested in them.
The truth to successful human relationships is this--you establish a connection with others if you show interest in getting to learn more about them. Remember, people don't care about how interesting you are. They are concerned about how interested you are in building connections with them.
Everyone wants to connect with people, whether they are an introvert or an extrovert. These connections can help you with achieving goals, industry, or sharing...
For many of us, we want to achieve a sense of peace and happiness in our lives. We want to feel less stressed and less overwhelmed when it comes to our day to day existence. With so many things causing distractions and trying to get our attention from tasks we need to do, living can be exhausting instead of enjoyable. So, how do we get rid of all these negativities and enjoy peaceful living? That’s what we’ll share with you here, so be sure to read along!
You may think that you’re already doing everything you can do, so your life is in order. However, you’re still experiencing a lot of chaos and disorder. Why? It’s because while you are trying to escape the chaos and stress, you focus on micromanaging every aspect of your life instead.
We do so many things that we think are helping us but are actually just adding to the stress. For example, you find ways to distract yourself because...
How does your daily routine look? Is it focused on getting more things done? Is it about achieving a specific task you have set for yourself? Or is it about ticking off every item in the to-do list you prepared at the beginning of the day?
You have a list, and the moment you get the opportunity to start the day, you rush to get it done. Because you’re so used to being in autopilot, you seldom stop or take a pause. Even when you are tired of constantly being in a hurry, you don’t take the chance to relax or take some breathing space.
The focus is always on getting things done and making sure they are done right. The goal is to always reach for what is ten steps ahead of you. Instead of thinking about where you are at the moment, you are worried about what would become of you tomorrow.
You never took a pause until you needed it.
Mindfulness activities are often associated with the idea of under-performance. Because you took...
A lot of people take pride in their optimism. These are the people who believe that hard times create a strong man. Truth be told, with everything that has been going on in the world, you are truly blessed if you can still stay positive.
People who always choose to see their glass half full have made a lifestyle choice. They decided to stay positive amid everything terrible that has been happening. They try to look at everything with a positive light. From the fights in their relationship to mistakes they commit at work, they always look at it with the perspective that there is a lesson somewhere. They just had to learn it the hard way.
Several studies show that more people are positive than those that consider themselves pessimistic. However, just because someone is positive does not mean that they don't see the problem at hand.
In fact, even optimistic people assume the worst in situations. It is quite easy to...
We all have goals that we want to achieve; however, why does it seem like no matter what we do, we can't truly stick to the plan and hit our goals? It's because when we don't have a structure in our routines, it's easy to lose motivation for doing what we intend to do.
An example is trying to change your diet so you can reach your health goals. But whenever mealtime comes, you forget about your motivations and your desire to have a healthier body because you still eat what you want.
Have you also tried becoming less of a procrastinator and be a more focused person? It may work well for you for a short period. However, after a while, your motives dissipate, and you go back to your usual habits.
There are plenty of examples that you can surely relate to, like starting an exercise routine or waking up early. We all try to start something to improve ourselves, but we fail miserably in the process.
Sometimes, we even feel that we're a hopeless case, and we feel...
When you find yourself going through hard times, remember that having strong coping mechanisms can make a huge difference. It can change not only the situation but your perspective for the better.
Some people find comfort in exercising, some focus on growing their spiritual life, and others enjoy making more time for rest. All of these can provide great support during challenging situations.
Other techniques can become particularly useful during tough times. There are always different things you can try to make things better.
How did you feel after writing that nasty email because you were so stressed out, and wanted to vent out how you felt? Though you ended up not sending it, you know that the act of writing it out felt good.
If you are suffering, writing...
Do you want to be the center of attention all the time? Has attention-seeking behavior become a large part of your personality?
If you desire to be at the center of everyone's life, you may be exhibiting other selfish behaviors, like not caring about how others think or feel. But is this really you?
The chronic desire to be the center of attention all the time, also known as histrionic personality disorder, is exemplified by always having to be noticed and or given attention. When this attention is not provided, the person with the disorder may react severely. Sufferers are more prone to engaging in provocative or destructive behavior to gain the attention that they want.
Those who are suffering from this disorder often find themselves wanting to get everyone's attention, regardless of the situation. These people feel uncomfortable when...
Do you ever feel blessed? Even if you don’t feel like your life is going your way right now, you have to admit that you have received many blessings in your life, and yet you give minimal regard to them. You are too focused on what you don’t have.
You fail to recognize your blessings properly, and oftentimes you forget them because you still yearn for more. Simply put, you take your blessings for granted because you think you deserve them. And yet, at the back of your mind, you believe you deserve more.
Whether you admit to it or not, the reality is that if you don’t appreciate what you already have, you will never find contentment. This lack of gratitude leaves a massive impact on your life. This is why it is vital to consider even the little things.
When someone tells you they appreciate your help, what do you say? Instead of saying “you’re welcome,” you...
Love yourself because nobody else will. Love who you are and accept the fact that nobody else will love you as you love yourself. When you do get both -- loving yourself and being loved by someone else -- you are truly one lucky being.
Everyone wants to feel loved by someone. In fact, people think that it’s the best kind of love. But when you seek the kind of love that you want from others, you are only giving them the power to take it away from you. If you only look for that feeling from other people and they decide to leave, you could feel broken and empty inside.
Have you ever wondered how it would feel to get all the love you desire and give it to yourself? You should learn how to love yourself and be confident about loving others.
Learning to love yourself is one of the hardest things people can do.
It requires a lot of things from you. Loving yourself means putting some time only for your needs. You have to put your wants...
How do you start practicing mindfulness? They say it takes years to find inner peace, but everyone has to start somewhere, right?
Setting yourself free from your ego is the first step to finding peace. When you stop thinking about yourself and start thinking about how others would feel, you are not only freeing yourself, but you are also teaching yourself the value of caring for others.
Everyone has their ego problem to deal with, but not everyone recognizes it as a problem. For some, it may just be something that they brush aside for a while until they forget altogether. It is only when it begins to pose a problem that people look into it and try to find solutions.
If you want to deal with the problem now and overcome your ego, you have to know where to begin.
While being concerned about your well-being is not necessarily a cause for concern; however, being too focused on yourself can do more harm than...
