First and foremost, please give yourself a big embrace and a pat on the back. You’ve earned it. Why? You recognized the need for transformation in yourself, which many people do, but you went above and above to look for ways to make it happen, something only a few individuals do.
Second, a month is a relatively little time for transformation to occur, but you can surely observe visible changes. Also, bringing about change in your life is a journey; you must adhere to your goals and continue to include good habits in order to progress.
Let’s see how you can start this journey –
- Mind and attitude – the mind desires to be involved with activities that provide immediate fulfillment or reward. A great number of people engage in things such as studies, employment, and so on that they perceive to be unsatisfying yet necessary. As a result, people frequently turn to utilizing their phone to peruse through social media or watch web series, offering their minds dopamine doses while working. Their day begins and ends with their phone and social media; in between, their day is packed with tasks connected to studies or a job that they dislike. In a nutshell, they continue to live this life. and you don’t get anything out of it. This manner of life shapes their attitude, perception, and behavior.
- What to do – Avoid looking at your phone first thing in the morning (unless you have critical emails or texts to read). Increase your knowledge horizon by reading on a broad topic, reading newspapers, periodicals, and articles, listening to podcasts to comprehend other viewpoints, remaining aware of what is going on around you, not viewing your work as a burden, improving your abilities, and working successfully and efficiently. Develop new habits, such as reading, writing, playing any sport, learning a language, and social work, to fill those boring gaps in your day; there are so many things to discover; don’t just glue yourself to your phone and social media (unless your job requires it). All of these additions and subtractions will cause a shift in your mentality.
2. Body – The body wants to rest and enjoy leisure activities, but it also needs physical movement. Our taste buds crave harmful foods, while our organs require green and clean meals. We take our bodies for granted by feeding them unhealthy foods and not exercising them. When our bodies show signs of malfunction, we want to find quick fixes, such as drugs and surgery. This is beneficial, but by failing to address the fundamental cause of our health issues, we end up back where we started. Overall, no progress and self-harm.
- Drink enough of water. A minimum of 8 to 10 glasses (2 – 2.5 liters) of water and additional liquids should be consumed daily (contact a health professional for more information). Avoid processed, low-nutrition foods and junk food. Consume more veggies and fruits and prepare your meals at home. Sugar and sugar-containing foods should be consumed in moderation. Regular exercise and adequate rest are essential. Make a sleeping schedule and stick to it. Don’t skip meals, and don’t eat too much. Listen to your body when eating and you’ll know when to quit.
3. Heart/emotions/feelings – The heart desires love and fulfillment, and in order to meet this need, we seek relationships with family, friends, and lovers. To meet our own interests, we often forget that the person or people with whom we are interacting are also human beings with hearts. We frequently forget that running from one relationship to the next, forming memories, and breaking trust will only leave a gap in our hearts, and true happiness and fulfillment will not be achieved. People nowadays become involved in casual relationships, flings, and one-night stands because they think it’s exciting and cool, but they don’t consider the long-term consequences. For some, it’s the passage of time, while for others, it’s a necessity. I don’t agree in either case. Anyway, to each their own, we can’t say much about this.
- What to do – Look for deep and meaningful connections, communicate with, and attempt to understand others (family, friends, and spouse). Learn to communicate and, more importantly, to listen with the goal of understanding and then being understood. If you have too much time to waste on useless flings, try doing some social work, joining an NGO, and working for people in need. This will result in complete contentment and satisfaction. Also, the sleep that follows such deeds is calm. Believe me.
4. Soul – the soul wants its purpose to be served. It wants peace. That feeling of true and inner calling pulls towards something particular to do. It doesn’t have to be aligned with your occupation. It can be something entirely distinct yet fulfilling and full of passion.
- what to do – try to be a better human being. Inculcate core values like honesty, respect, and loyalty towards other living beings. Respect mother nature and show gratitude. Don’t get involved in malign deeds like gossip, insulting, belittling others, talking behind your back, and thinking of ways to hurt and ruin others. If someone has done wrong to you learn your lesson and move forward. Introspect and meditate to connect with your soul and bring calmness to your mind. Worship and seek guidance from God.
