And too just because the male gender has been tagged with overly misunderstood term called ‘macho‘.
Macho means muscular and not emotionless, right !
Well, if men were emotionless then there would hardly be any opposite gender couples in relationship.
Just do me a favour and google ‘men’s emotions taken for granted‘. Not a single post is for men. Everywhere the notion is — it’s the women who are always the victim. Such is not the case always.
Men also have emotions and emotions are not be played with, be it women or men.
Equality comes from treating each others as equals and not categorising one gender as weak and the other as emotionless.
Let’s bid adieu to the old, misunderstood, misused notions and treat each other’s as humans, coz every human is capable of feelings and emotions.
I visited the iconic Mughal Gardens in the Rashtrapati Bhavan in February with a sceptic mind, but the view around left a colourful mark in my heart. Sharing few pics of my visit.
It opens only a month’s time for visitors (in February and March). Do visit if you happen to be in New Delhi around that time.
Although breathing is an unconscious activity but paying attention to it when under stress can help you to relax. The next time when a stressful situation overpowers your actions, stop anything that you’re doing for three minutes and do the following three steps:
At times it becomes hard to concentrate on work because of some other ongoing agenda in mind. Under such situation, try stepping away from what you are doing to re-center your thoughts.
Just get up and go for a walk
Watch outside the window.
Talk to colleague.
Play some game for a while.
Within few minutes your thoughts will be re-aligned to your job at hand.
Giving yourself a dose of laughter can prove to be a fantastic way to kill the stress.
You can read some memes online, watch some funny videos on youtube (cat, dog, baby or whatever is your preference), read few of the thousands of jokes forwarded on whatsapp, or share some laugh with colleagues.
The power of music is phenomenal. Just put on your headphones, start your current favourite track and let it take control of your thoughts. If your aura permits you can even dance.
Stop for a moment and ask yourself this 2 questions –
a. The stress under which I am at the moment, 10 years down the lane will this matter to me?
b. 10 years down the lane will I remember being in this situation? If no, then why care now. If yes, then will I be laughing at it or be weeping?
95% of times you won’t remember being in whatever you are at the moment.
These at the most proven ways to stay calm under stress. So the next time you feel anxious, try and pick anyone of these and see yourself relax in seconds.
Have a happy life!
And finally one of mine
May your tomorrow be as colourful as these quotes. 🙂
The world is moving fast and so is the technology and ideas. I shall be going forth here with the discussion on ‘Thought Training’ but with a different angle.
Let’s start with a background story.
It was the winter of 2011; I was casually strolling down the familiar locality of my maternal uncle’s place with my cousin while discussing about the prospect of starting our own mobile recharge company. We discussed in depth the limitations of the presently available e-commerce companies and deduced 4 major USP’s.
We immediately started working on the details as to how to initiate the process. Roughly a week later our vacations ended and we headed back to our respective universities with a promise to keep up the momentum of kick starting the venture. The pressure of exams, assignments and other curricular activities diverted our focus and as early as six months down the lane one of the online recharge company (who could have been our probable competitors) launched 2 out the 4 USP’s. A year later another company included our 3rd USP and just 2 months ago I saw the current e-commerce giant launch the 4th USP.
Having a breakthrough idea is not sufficient anymore. What’s required is how passionately you are willing to devote yourself to that idea?
Because if you don’t, don’t assume somebody else will also not.
I have received some requests and suggestions to do some Gyaan ki baatein (wisdom talks) instead of the usual random posts.
After much pondering I thought – Let’s do this.
In the most simplest form we can think of thoughts as frequencies. The thoughts never die; they can travel millions of miles across the universe without the slightest change in their intensity.
So when you have a positive thought, that particular frequency pulls in the thoughts of the same frequency. For example – when you are feeling confident about your work, then you start having similar thoughts which boost your confidence or people directly/indirectly praise your work.
Remember, we are what we are because of the collective thoughts of millions and millions of beings across of the universe. Now the catch here is that the supreme control stays with us. We are in full control of choosing which thought grows in our mind. How? By choosing the right seed!
If you are having a negative thought, for example – failure, then you are attracting thoughts of that particular frequency around you and you start contemplating further about your life decisions, past events, career and so on you go associating them all with failure.
Now its on us to keep radiating thoughts of the same frequency, thereby attracting the same frequency or change the channel to something soothing… something relaxing.
It’s that simple! If the song playing on the radio is making you sad then just tune it another one… a soothing one .. where a fine melody is being played.
Just think – Your sad thoughts will make someone else more sad when they are down, while your happiness will help in multiplying someone’s happy thoughts.
Think about it.
Well, I read about this a while back in a chapter of a tiny book by Swami Vivekananda and it has helped me ever since. Hope it helps you too 🙂
Will also explain the same in my upcoming video and will share more related stuff in my succeeding posts.
