Your mind is a reflection of who you are. It acts more like a mirror that shows the person you are from within. Relaxing your mind is as essential as taking rest and giving your physical body a break.
Taking some time off and rejuvenating yourself, avoiding anything that can cause stress, anxiety, or even the mundane life routine, could help relieve a lot of day-to-day pressure. We are all taking up a lot more than what our minds, brains, and bodies can. We are working longer hours and multitasking like never before, and there is a lot of pressure and competition around us. As a result, screen time is much more than it used to be a few years ago. In addition, there is inflation, economic pressure, lifestyle changes, and a lot more that is going on that can affect us in many different ways.
Life has become more like a rat race to nowhere! People are all so busy running the race, not understanding that it does not matter who comes first. However, what matters is that half of the people running the race could probably fall sick and tired of the whole thing quickly down the lane.
To avoid such exhaustion, it is critical to stay put, not forget to enjoy and relish the little things, stay rooted and avoid unnecessary social competition. With the rising use of social media and other social platforms, people constantly need to look, behave and live life a certain way – which is absolutely not required. People must realize that “You do you – I do me. We are all different and unique in our good ways”.
Take a break, let loose, and go for a holiday. Stay away from screens, practice family dinners and meal times, play with children, read good books, listen to good music, watch inspirational movies, talk to wise people and get motivating ideas to keep going. Providing your mind with the proper measures can go a long way! Be patient with yourself, keep doing what you feel is best for you to heal wholly, and run your race – because it is always you against you and no one else. And remember, at your pace.
Rejuvenate your mind and make peace with what you have achieved. Take pride in yourself and appreciate yourself. Do anything that can give you peace and calm. Be there for you – because no one else understands you as you do…
