    I’m a Professional blogger and in couple of months I’m going to complete my 3 years of professional blogging journey. Though we all know Blogging is a self-employed job which comes with it’s own up’s and down’s. I have lived a very easy life in last 3 years and enjoyed the freedom of working from home and work at any time of the day. Though when I think about these 3 years I’m certainly not very proud of my achievements, as I could have achieved many more things in this time. One thing, which I learned from my experience is, it’s important to be a better person first than anything else. As, your personal life-style is going to be one major reasons which will impact your future.

    From last one month I have been working a lot to enhance my mind, body and soul and I could see the difference in terms of positive energy inside and around me. The reason I choose this off-topic here at ShoutMeLoud is based on my personal experience and I know lots of readers here are on the way of becoming a professional blogger or an Entrepreneur. Here I’m going to share some tips which I have been following and probably you should too to enhance your life and hence your career.

    Personal mind enhancement tips & ideas:

    Yoga:

    This is the first step which I would suggest to every human around the world. In my own words, Yoga is an art of living which connects your soul, body and mind all together. It’s a practice which every human being should perform every day. The best way to start is read more about Yoga on Wiki so that you will get clear idea on what is it and how it works and most important how it’s going to enhance your body. Here is a small tip which you can do every morning : I remember Yoga, from my school day when we were asked to close your eyes and think of a ground full of grass, plants and butterflies. Moving ahead, concentrate on Sun, move close to it, and feel the warmth of Sun. Every morning performing this task for 5-10 minutes you can easily get better concentration, focus and peace of mind. If you live in a locality where you can easily avail Yoga classes, it’s worth a try. Though one on one Yoga interaction is always better and if you can get a private yoga tutor, you will realize the power of Yoga faster. I also suggest you to check out Eye care tips, where you will find Yoga video to improve your visions.

    Here is a video which you can watch to get started with Yoga:

    Positive energy and people around you:

    One of the most important Entrepreneurship tip which I have read somewhere is the power of positive energy. Yoga is a way to enhance is but truly achieving positive energy is in your hands. How many times when you meet someone, you feel happiness, joy and a see everything around you with a positive note. How many times when you meet a person, you feel depressed, lost and most important you feel negativity. This is what positive and negative energy is. The first thing which you can do is to clean your environment and place where you live. Be it your room, house or your work place. A cleaner space, gives you more energy and less distraction. Another important aspect is move away from negative people around you or people who fill you with negativity with their thoughts and words.

    Alcohol and drugs:

    I’m never against social drinking but we all know working from home is one thing which gives you ample reasons to drink regularly. In my mid career of Blogging, I used to drink alcohol every day and work. This had bad impact on my mental state and more over on my body. I left drinking habit long time back and this become one of the best thing which I did in last 1 year. I have fewer worries, less chances of committing a mistake under the influence of alcohol and as mentioned above more positive energy floating around me. Another fact, any adult who drinks or smoke is by choice and not because of circumstances and reasons. If you are a regular drinker and you believe it’s because of work pressure of because you have lots of worries in your life, you are mistaken. You doing it because your will power is low and as an average human you can’t get rid of your addiction. If you are one who is addicted to Alcohol an drugs, it’s time for you to start doing Yoga and if possible join a rehab. Leaving this addiction might take some time but when there is a will, there is a way.

    Follow a schedule:

    To be honest, I enjoy working in the night and if you are connected to me on Facebook or Google+, you might notice my updates usually comes in the night. Though from last couple of week, I’m trying to follow a schedule which is required by my body. “Early to bed and Early to rise”. Believe it or not, I have seen a great impact on my body and mind by following above statement. By getting up early, I can start with Yoga, meditation and most important my creativity is at it’s best. Since I try to sleep by 11-11.30, I also get rid of drinking habit as I know, I have to wake up early tomorrow. More over this also made me eat 5 times a day which is great for my physical growth.

    Now or never:

    If you are one of those who ends up every day with tons of pending work, you might not be able to accomplish your task within given time, ever. Or you might finish some, but you will end up skipping many. I get hundreds of Email every day, and I started following “Now or never” and this has given my power to finish all the tasks which belongs to me. More over, you will be bound to follow a systematic routine, since you have to follow a schedule and accomplish the task. At times, you can schedule your task for later, but yes, start following to-do list and calendar to make sure you never miss out anything important.

    Here is a nice video shared by one of SML reader, which gives some important mind enhancement tips to stay creative:

    If you have read all the 5  tips to enhance mind & soul you will realize that each and everyone of them is connected to each other and it’s important for you to inter-connect with all of them. To be a successful blogger or excel in your professional field, it’s important to be a better human first.

    If you have some other Mind Enhancement tips which helped you to enhance your life, I would love to know your secret.

    I remember that I gave a tip to guys @chaaps.com and told them to take blogging seriously along with studies. Not sure, how much he is earning but yes, even in final year of college this guy is earning good amount and probably he might not join any full time job when he is done with his B.tech.
    Take away from this: Like you have schedule for everything, make a 1-2 hr of schedule for blogging every day. This will help you in long run . :)

    Good changes to incorporate Harsh!

    I think anything that makes you a happier person within, and you feel like you are really living in the real sense, is worth going in for! I myself have started making a few changes in my lifestyle, like incorporated Transcendental Meditation, started my morning walks, started closing up the Internet at a specific time and starting to work at a specific time. All these things were due long back, though somehow we keep postponing them.

    Thanks for the reminders once again :)

    We are a person before blogger and I like following Swami Vivekananda Quote:

    “Be strong, my young friends; that is my advice to you. You will be nearer to Heaven through football than through study of Gita. “

    Harsh Agrawal

    That’s a nice quote Brij. I may be wrong, but I guess take away from this quote is “Performing action is better than reading and planning”.

    Its paradoxical to say yoga and alcohol/drugs in the same post. I totally agree with you over yoga thing for full time bloggers. A daily routine exercise or light yoga is absolutely necessary to pacify mind and soul.

    However, Alcohol is okay for sheer pleasure for life.

    Harsh, nice to read your experience and habits.
    Sometimes working full time at home also can be irritating.

    You could have added God or any religious activities also here. It will definitely improve the mind as a blogger and person.
    I’m sure you have achieved well in last three years and you must be proud of it.

    Good luck in future.
