In life and living simply knowing when to say, share, pause, or even stop is an art of mindful living.
Just as you may know to seize an opportunity. Sometimes even good relationships are lost because of sharing unsolicited advice & information.
So it is important to see subtle indifference to glaring signs of disinterest and change this way of dealing with people especially with customers.
Pesky Habit of Pushing Forwards.
On the subject of Forwards especially through WhatsApp, all of us may have been having this kind of meaningless forwards come our way from acquaintances. Some of them sharing every kind of isms there is! So here are words that need to be said. From a customer
To all who share endless forwards
A checkpoint in goodwill.
Every WhatsApp forward can be disturbing or distracting for another no matter the content.
Please remember to think twice before polluting an already crowded cyberspace.
There is enough knowledge out there to find if one wants to, anything at all!
In business, sometimes clients are lost because of these unsolicited shares. If you find that a client is not responding to your share by acknowledging it, then please discontinue bombarding them with your forwards every day.
Perhaps it will help save you a client. 😇Instead, how about being creative and enterprising instead? Why not write a blog, express and share your heart away. Those who identify will always check in. And you would be only happier for you will feel it’s worth your while.
At least you will have it all together in one place.
Have you had experiences of endless forwards coming your way?
How do you manage it?
Do you feel overwhelmed or even delete it without opening it?
Do you feel bombarded with all kinds of unsolicited forwards every time? Do share your views on this.
No longer subtle
The reality is stark
Glaring and in the face
No longer just an article in the paper
That you can turn the page over.
The repurcursions of indifference
And ignorance is felt the world over.
Raging tides of tsunami
Fury of volcanic eruptions
Massive magnitude of earthquakes
Melting glaciers and the undercurrents
Flooding & famines everywhere
Vast barren lands devoid of green
Earth is bleeding profusely
And bursting at its seams.
Pollution to overpopulation
Extinction of rare species
Man is no longer human.
Apathy is the new name of humanity.
Where does the human think he can go?
There is no place other than this earth
Our home is invaded encroached & overloaded by us.
It is on a self balancing mode
As of now, to align itself.
The sooner we stop taking this world
For granted the better is our future.
Lets us please remember our every move
Makes a difference.
Lets aim to be responsible be respectful
Be aware and take care!
Are you too empathetic for your own good?
Are you putting yourself in others shoes so much that you disregard yourself?
Are you neglecting your own self for others’ needs?
Are you having shoulder stress and general fatigue?
Are you feeling worn out often and yet get dressed and show up?
Are you feeling you are giving more than you have…in words and deeds?
Maybe you are overstretching in the giving.
Remember you need to reach out but only until you are able to keep your own self in balance.
Otherwise, you will soon feel you have nothing left to give.
Are you unable to sleep well?
You toss and turn all through the night.
Are you are so tired that you are constantly down and have chronic pain?
Are you overpressured?
You feel responsible for others’ problems.
Time to check your own state of being.
It is quite possible …
Maybe you are being over accountable.
Maybe you are over accommodating.
Many of us may identify with some of these sensations. I have also born the brunt of being in the state, with my health affected, in spite of being aware, thinking it will self heal in time.
The truth is many us may even know we are in such situations that are exhausting our reserves and yet at times may be unable to take drastic measures to prevent them. Knowing is not enough! It is necessary to take a step to change.
The trick is to understand the circumstances that we are feeling overwhelmed by and choose to target our changes realistically.
To each, the problem presents itself uniquely! For some, it may be relationships and family or careers. For others, it may be a personal affliction or tendency to multitask beyond themselves or even battling over perfectionism.
Whatever the reason the sooner you realize that it is detrimental for your health and understand you need to implement lifestyle changes the better it will be.
Often in our efforts to be the best version of ourselves, we may go into a mode of putting ourselves into more than we can handle. Our mind body and spirit also need rest and recovery from the daily stressors that life doles out to us all.
We can learn from nature
Everything is best in balance.
Each of us may have different coping strategies to overcome the challenges but the problem is our purpose of being is so passionately driven and in the determined perseverance of what we choose to accomplish and achieve in our lifetime we often fail to recognize the state of our own lives until it feels too overwhelming.
Until the lack of sleep creates discomfort and disorders eventually leading to inflammations and diseases in the body and mind. We are guilty of undermining ourselves. We need to remember our sole responsibility as adults rest with us and we need to adhere to our health needs. After all, it is the only body we have. The importance of a healthy body and mind cannot be stressed enough.
Things every one of us can easily implement include :
Optimize food: Check your health and improve your food habits
Avoid self-victimization: Choose to not feel overtly responsible for all.
Plan your day: Prioritize tasks Schedule a personal time as often as you feel necessary. And value it.
Avoid procrastination: Recognize your symptoms and take action.
Sleep well. Remember you matter and health comes first. Only if you are healthy can you do anything else?
