Weekend motivations


In the event that you’ll not make due with anything not as much as your best ,if you can’t do incredible huge things, do great little things, you will be astonished at what you can achieve in your lives.Courage is the thing that it takes to stand up and talk. Valor is additionally what it brings to take a seat and listen.
Happiness doesn’t come about because of what we get, however from what we give.
We need to step sometimes into troubled waters not to get drown, but to cleanse ourselves,and taste the cruelty of life.

A boring life. A life we’re so afraid of living. A life wasted in mediocrity.Are you living such life?

Remember that,

“If you want to achieve something truly remarkable you have to take a truly remarkable risk.”

Life is either a great adventure or nothing”.

Wednesday motivation

Hey, lovely people!

Welcome to life. Some of us have really pathetic days and that too every damn day.
But what’s the motivation? Why don’t we just give up and keep on pushing ourselves? I think it’s a thing out there, something which we haven’t figured out yet but we know it’s there.
So, we keep on fighting to reach that horizon, in the hope that something beyond there is really worth fighting for.

Therefore, all we need to do is keep fighting for something better, to keep on trying, to give it all of we have and I… I’m sure, we all will reach there; may take a while to find, but once we do, it will be a life, a life in the paradise, the paradise you deserve.

Thank you for reading 😊😊😊

No Internet week Challenge

 

Recently, I took one-week no internet challenge. No Internet for a week, no emails, no social media, nothing. I’m usually a hardcore internet user. On a bad day I spend more time on it than off, am stuck in a haze of heedless web-based social networking looking over, poring over boring Facebook posts from people I don’t know, distracted by email links from mailing lists I never signed up for and rotating between online magazines, time-killing youtube, Instagram, Quora, social interaction notifications, Twitter and so forth. I realized that I was chained to the digital world.

So, I tried taking a break from it when I knew that it’s affecting my productivity and health by altering my sleeping patterns. I promised not to sneak a peek on my phone and computer for a week. My college’s end- term examinations ended this week and hence it was the perfect time to take up this challenge; time to cut-off myself from the social media and the Internet.

The first thing that struck me after a day of abstention wasn’t so much what I lost, but what I gained. Time.So much time. Not taking my phone into the bedroom with me was giving me at least two hours extra a day. I never thought that I had this much time before and would usually blame my engineering curriculum.

I made a daily schedule and tried maintaining a diary to which at the end of the day writing down of what I achieved and what not.

Two days in and miraculously I was far more productive; I could do something that would normally take me a whole day in an hour of uninterrupted focus.  Consequently, I felt a lot better about myself.

It took four days before I got itchy trigger fingers. I was watching an IPL match on TV and felt an overpowering urge to share my thoughts on it with my friends on WhatsApp, but I resisted. The next morning I woke up with a craving to check in with the online world: the news, the papers, the facebook, the twitter.

What I began to realize was how many times I fool myself about why I’m picking my phone up: to check the time, to check emails, to discover something particular. In reality, these are just gateway excuses for me to jump into the dull cycle of internet use. When I stopped to think about it, I realized that I would pick my phone up or sit down at my computer to find one thing out, and an hour later would have completely forgotten what that thing was. Before I would tell myself- “Hey let me take a break and check out some notifications”. Hours later I would still be checking notifications or laughing on some stupid youtube channel, or engrossed tweeting on some not so necessary twitter threads.

But, now it was different. I started reading books and watching television again – things I hadn’t done in months. I started to have long, involved chats with neighboring friends. Most importantly I became very very aware of my surroundings -the green leaves of plants, the pleasant blowing wind, and the blue sky. Everything seemed so real and I looked at them and thought that where I have been before, why didn’t I noticed this earlier.

By the start of the sixth day what had become very clear is how over-stimulated I had become when I was using the internet.

I’d got through the week without going online but I’m not sure how it would have worked over a much longer period of time. By the end, I didn’t want to log back on; I genuinely wanted to break the chain. I want to enjoy the nature, the family-friend chats, hanging out outside and everything I couldn’t do before.

But as a student, it’s virtually impossible to go without internet for a significant period of time. Not only do you miss out on social events, but your work suffers too. However, I’d also recommend logging off occasionally; even if just for a day or two. It will help for sure.

When you realize that internet is nothing more than an addiction..it’s a hard habit to break; but when you break the addiction, life is so much fun.

So all I want to say through this post is that use internet wisely, no doubt it is essential but don’t let it empower your mind and body.

For me, I will surely figure out a way to maintain an equilibrium with life on the internet and outside it, because  I really want to enjoy both of them.

Peace and have a nice weekend!
