There is no denying that you have your own ways of getting things done. You're comfortable in your techniques and may have spent years perfecting them, so whatever it is you're doing almost always ends up working out correctly. However, you've grown afraid of experimenting or shifting your perspective because you're scared that something might not turn out well. When you're stuck within a certain mindset, you don't grow or develop. You may be hindering your career or personal growth if you're too afraid to make changes, no matter how small.
Whether it is performing a task, starting a conversation, or doing an activity, a small change in mindset or action can make a huge difference. What does it mean to make a shift?
The shift is opening up to possibilities. It is warming up to something new. Making a shift in mindset or action could help open your heart and mind to trying out something you've not had the chance to try before.
Making a shift may not sound too...
When was the last time you had an adventure? Maybe you haven’t gone out for fun for a long time. You may be thinking, “With my schedule, that’s just impossible these days. How do you start traveling when you have no time?” Yes, that could be true for many of us. But we can still find a way to bring excitement back into our lives. Your life adventure doesn’t have to remain a dream. You can turn it into reality and let the vacation begin. Now, what you have to focus on is how to start being more adventurous. Don’t be nervous; the whole process will be fun and filled with discovery and exploration.
Being an adult can be stressful, but it also has its perks. When we were younger, we didn’t have the means to travel whenever we wanted to. Now, we have full control of our resources, which are our time and money. If you’re thinking about the responsibilities of being...
Have you had that feeling of being incomplete? You may have felt it during your younger years, or perhaps you’ve felt it your whole life. It’s that feeling where it seems like something’s missing or something’s not quite right. There’s this void inside you, and you can’t figure out what it is.
It’s possible that you also feel lonely because somehow, there’s this disconnect between you and others. You have this nagging thought that you just don’t fit in. As you grew older, this loneliness and disconnect may have turned into further isolation and unfulfillment.
Even if we think that we’re self-reliant and independent, deep down, we still feel the need to connect and foster intimacy with other people. We try to get it from social media, but this doesn’t give us the satisfaction that we’re looking for. You may have tried using dating apps so you can meet new...
Everyone wants to be liked and loved. People want to be appreciated for what they do or for their intelligence. Others want to show off their good nature or their natural speaking ability.
While everyone wants to be accepted, it can be quite tough to teach oneself how not to care about what others think about them. Sadly, when you want others to like you the way you want to be liked, you end up giving them all the power over you. You start to rely on them for self-acceptance. Their opinion begins to play a pivotal role in your success as a person. That is where the vicious cycle begins.
Perhaps you, too, have wondered how not to let people get to you. When you begin to believe that other people's opinions or impressions of you is all that matters, then telling yourself not to care becomes more difficult.
In wanting to be accepted, you end up losing a part of who you are. When you continue to worry about what others will say, you end up seeing only the reality that...
If you were challenged to only check your email twice per day, do you think you could do it? Probably, but that’s not the catch. Along with only checking your email twice per day, you have to complete everything you have to do within 30 minutes. Will you survive?
When it comes to productivity improvement, people need to see how they are spending their time. What are they spending their time on? When you know what is keeping you busy the whole day, you’ll see how you can manage your time better.
If you wish you had more time in a day to get things done, you’re not handling your time well. That’s why it feels like you need more.
Whenever you think of how to become more productive, you can’t help but wonder what you are doing wrong.
The email challenge is not about rushing through your work emails. Rather, it is about optimizing your efficiency to improve your productivity.

Have you ever thought of how to teach teens the proper way of dealing with their digital life? While these young minds may benefit from mindfulness activities for teens, many adults need the same thing.
People spend most of their days on social media. It takes a massive part in their lives. In fact, most family and friends find it useful to keep in touch through social media.
But then again, the use of social media isn't just about communicating. It has evolved in so many ways. For some, it has become a platform where they can pretend to be someone else. Because of this, we have to be very careful. Mindful learning is something everyone must practice.
A person's portrayal of his life on social media is not the same as in real life. Even if we understand this, it's easy to wish that we were living their life instead of our own. This may be a simple case of wishful thinking, but it could be dangerous.

For many younger millennials and older generation z's, career selection can be difficult. Many want to pursue their passion, but at the same time, they have to ask themselves, "What job suits me but will also help me pay my bills?" How do we have a career that gives us the paycheck we need and also be one that's fulfilling and provides us with a sense of purpose?
You may find yourself feeling uncertain about making a big move in your career. You worry that it could be a mistake to leave the job you have now and find something that's truly meaningful for you. Whenever you find yourself feeling uncomfortable about the situation you're in, it will be helpful if you can pause and take some time to reflect. What do you really want? This is an important question to ask yourself when choosing a career with purpose.
If you're unhappy with the job that you have, then you have to assess if you'll continue going down this path, or are you willing to take...
Do you have those nagging inner voices that say you aren’t good enough? No matter how confident we think we are, whenever we attempt something new in our lives, all those doubtful voices fill our heads. Usually, we achieve some relief after we’re done with the task, be it a job interview, a report at school, or even when asking someone out. But it won’t take too long before new worries swarm our minds. It’s a never-ending cycle.
We expect to feel worried when going through something new, but how concerned should we get? Sometimes, you may find that you’re overly-worried about things because of those critical inner voices telling you that you can’t do it. Those voices are your internal enemy and can even be a threat to your chance of realizing your true potential and living a fulfilled life.
If you listen to your critical inner voices, you will begin to distrust your own abilities, become your own worst critic,...
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...
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...
