Hey you mortal (poem)

Hey you mortal!
How foolish are you to pretend that you will last forever,
how foolish are you to believe that all you accumulate in this material world defines you?
You think it will stay with you forever?
In this time & age you are being sucked into a belief,
that all the material achievements & possessions is our real earnings.
There is a reason behind us feeling this way.
We are escaping the feeling world.
Why? Because it’s more work.
It’s more effort & less pretence.
It’s more from the inside & less from the outside.

Hey you mortal!
Who we are as a person defines us nothing more nothing less.
You have heard this before,right? Yet find it difficult to believe.
Our ability to be compassionate, to love, to be kind, to help each other is what we will be remembered for.

Hey you mortal!
Once you leave this earth you will only need a white cloth to wrap your soulless body in.
Some will cry, some will weep.
Some will for grieve for a few days and some will just wipe you out of their memory in a jiffy.
All these social media friends & fans, these colleagues, and even family, will sooner or later forget you.
Sad but true.
At last, The only thing that will force people to think of you or remember you, is a memory of how you behaved with them, how you made them feel. Your love, compassion, care and regard will stay.
That loving hug, a helpful gesture, even that excited goodbye wave.

Hey you mortal!
Your soul craves for something more meaningful, yet you stuff it with surface gold & glitter.
Can you provide your soul with the right fodder?
Something satisfying, peaceful, that makes your heart grow fonder.
Your habits, your things & your temporary flings,
Don’t have that power.
What has the real power is What you can do for others, your actions, your karma and your kind feelings.

Hey you mortal!
Try it, it’s not so difficult.
Step aside from this chaos, and focus on the little things you can do for people.
Spend some time doing good for others, and be more humble.
May be it will come back or may be it won’t.
But the fruit this bears will be the sweetest ever.
Go nurture your inner being,
become kinder, Go less on criticism & complaining.
Give that credit, clear your karmic dues,
This for sure will make you feel higher.
Make an effort to make someone’s day brighter.

Hey you mortal,
there is so much you can do!
Go nurture your soul.

5 ways to simplify your life instantly

We all want to be successful, but Stress is turning out to be our biggest health problem. It often feels like we are always racing against time & tide. Mostly it is also for a simple reason because we have complicated our lives way too much.

We can simplify it almost instantly, while we seek success with these things you can do to simplify your life:

1. Learn the art of time management: it is the most valuable resource, Value it, use it wisely, stop being late or keeping people waiting for you. You make someone wait, someone makes you wait , its a viscous circle and in this whole process you lose so much of valuable time and energy which could have been used doing something else effectively. Some situations are unavoidable I understand, but tackle those which are in your control. Keep a buffer in your schedule for those unavoidable circumstances. A wise man once said Time is everything! So master it, tame it or do whatever you can to use it well.
2. Plan better – planning is a brilliant skill and it can be mastered with practice. Planning process  makes you look at your current situation analytically and allows you to figure out a way forward to achieve your goal. It could be something as small as your daily routine or a long holiday or a big career change. Planning let’s you De-clutter and focus on just ‘that’ specific goal. A good plan cuts out the stress of “Now what?”. Great planning requires preemptive thinking which changes the game completely. Start with making a TO DO LIST daily. Trust me, striking off the tasks from that checklist feels awesome !! Any successful person I know of has been there & done that. Yes you don’t have to forget the impromptu element of your life but remember you can’t apply that on everything & Every time.
3. Get healthier: You only live as long as your body & mind let you. So invest time in getting healthy or healthier. We all have at some point felt that we do enough to stay healthy like stopping alcohol intake or going for a walk daily. But how do you know if that is enough for a body & lifestyle like yours? Your body gives you signs listen to them, aim to be your healthiest version, it cant go wrong right?. Eat well & exercise and most importantly sleep well. All of these getting healthy mantras won’t work if you don’t rest your body well. Don’t complicate the process too much. A healthy mind & body will help you achieve your goals faster and alongside enjoy every minute of your life. Someone once told me that we all want to be successful, but we must also want to be able to enjoy our success.
4. De-clutter big time: With technology taking over our lives we struggle between a digital & a Normal life and maintaining that balance. Don’t get consumed with all these new offers new deals, new accounts, apps, networking sites & new bank cards. Simplify your life try to keep one email id, one bank account, One credit card and watch how free you feel. I am in the process of doing this and it feels liberating. The point is not to do what I am doing but instead do things that reduce your work & stress. Cut the nonsense out , whether it’s things, habits or people. Don’t get sucked into the trend of so many to choose from, it doesn’t work for everyone in fact most of the time it leaves you more confused than ever.
5. Re-invent yourself: Pick up a new hobby or activity, get out of that mundane life. Each time we try to learn something new we span out of our comfort zone. It’s liberating for our minds. Freeing ourselves and exploring new aspects of our own self. Yoga, Art, music or dance are catalysts in fighting stress and a wholesome mental development.And you definitely need a healthy mind to succeed faster & better.A better version of ourselves always propels us ahead in life.
