Ten ways to lead a ‘H’ life
1. Live in the present
Many times, many of us either think constantly about the past, the grudges, the arguments, the disagreements, or about the things and situations we want to take place in the future, events, revenge, etc. We engage in self hallucinations or fussing over some particular happening. Gradually we get habituated to this and this habit slowly and steadily gets rooted into ourselves. As and how it drains away most of our energy. We become less productive. Our anxiety levels go high and as a result, our brain is consumed the entire day without actually being productive. We feel stressed and sleepy all the time taking our interest in life. This indeed focuses on the need to live in the current moment, being mindful of our situations and surroundings. It’s essential to be mindful and not mind full. Live fully today, don’t keep it for someday which we never know if it would ever come. Life is certainly uncertain. Therefore, make it a point that no day is half-lived or not enjoyed.
2. Improve your standard
Improving your standard here doesn’t mean that to have the latest trends in your claws. However, it simply means that you need to take efforts to actually how you make others around you feel. What your aura has to convey to the people around you, what vibes your presence gives. People certainly feel like spending more time with those who make them feel special, listen to them, make them laugh, and sincerely care about them. So make it an endeavor to give your all to whatever you do and with whosoever you are.
3. There is no room for any toxicity
Don’t let any negativity interfere in your circle. Remain aloof from the people disturbing the sanctity of the temple of your mind. Stop wasting time arguing with those who are never going to understand you. Instead start investing in those people who need you, who respect others’ opinions and care for their feelings. It’s difficult to find such people. Spend time with your parents as you have always been the apple of their eyes. Have some light-hearted talks along with those whose absence will matter to you the most and often you neglect their presence.
4. Care for your personal temple
Many temples and churches are a place of high respect and reverence. It’s crucial for them to visit the temple once in a while.

As when you have your health in your claws, you can capture any other wealth, as ‘a Sound body resides in a sound mind.’ Give your body the time it deserves.
5. Reconnect with the nature
Nature is the Greatest teacher, nurturer, healer, and friend. It’s a blessing in disguise to mankind. Connecting oneself with nature and surroundings is similar to connecting to one’s own soul. After a busy long week, when you simply go in some natural surroundings say for instance in a near park, village, dam, waterfall and calm your monkey mind will really help a lot. You could even go for a mini-vacation. It won’t just reinstall life within you but also rekindle a new spark within you enough for some great productivity. Maybe listen to some light music or read a book or just observe people and beauty around you in the park. So is rightly said by W.H Davies, “ What is this life if full of care, We have no time to stand and stare.
6. Stop fussing about things you cannot change
There are some things where you have no control and you just can’t get over it. Remember to do what you can and the rest will be done itself.
