I’m a Professional Blogger and in a couple of months, I’m going to complete my three years of professional blogging journey. Though we all know Blogging is a self-employed job that comes with its own up’s and down. I have lived a very easy life in last three years and enjoyed the freedom of working from home and work at any time of the day.
Though when I think about these three 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 have learned from my experience is; it’s important to be a better person first than anything else. Your personal life-style will have a huge impact on 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 chose this off-topic here at ShoutMeLoud is based on my personal experience and I know a lots of readers here are on the way of becoming a professional blogger or an Entrepreneur. Here I’m going to share some tips that I have been following and probably you should too to enhance your life and hence your career.
Personal mind enhancement tips & ideas:
Yoga and meditation:
This is the first step that I would suggest to every human around the world. In my words, Yoga is an art of living which connects your soul, body and mind altogether. It’s a practice that every human being should perform every day. The best way to start is read more about Yoga on Wiki so that you will get the 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 days when we were asked to close our eyes and think of a ground full of grass, plants, and butterflies. Concentrate on the Sun, move close to it and feel the warmth of the Sun. By 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 videos to improve your visions.
Here is a video that you can watch to get started with Yoga:
Positive energy and people around you:
One of the most important Entrepreneurship tip that I have read somewhere is the power of positive energy. Yoga is a way to enhance us but achieving positive energy is in your hands. How many times when you meet someone, you feel happiness, joy, and you see everything around you with a positive outlook. 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 that you can do is to clean your environment and place where you live, be it your room, house or your workplace. A cleaner space gives you more energy and less distraction. Another important aspect is to 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 that gives you ample reasons to drink regularly. In my mid-career of Blogging, I used to drink regularly. This had a bad impact on my mental state and more over on my body. I have left my drinking habit long time back, and this is one of the best things that I did in last one year. I have fewer worries, fewer 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 or because you have lots of worries in your life, you are mistaken. You are 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 and drugs, it’s time for you to start doing Yoga and if possible join a rehab. Leaving this addiction might take some time but where 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 at night. Though from last couple of week, I’m trying to follow a schedule that 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 my drinking habit as I have to wake up early tomorrow. More over this also made me eat five times a day that 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 that belong to me. Moreover, 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.
If you have read all the five tips to enhance mind & soul, you will realize that each and every one 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.
