It was just another mundane
day the husband was in the office and the kids were studying and yelling. But the
weather was pleasant and there was a gentle breeze. So I kept my kitchen door
open. Suddenly I heard a mesmerizing sound, like that of a xylophone or music
from jalatharangam. It was to my amazement I found people from a nearby balcony
had tied a wind chime that was making such beautiful sound. The music turned a mundane evening into a
lively and an exciting one.
You may have become wound up
in the same old routine. You need to re-energize your life to live it to the
fullest. So, how do you go about? Oxford
dictionary defines the word re-energize as fresh vitality, enthusiasm or imputes
to. Just take stock of your life and cut off the things which weigh you down. Introduce
practices and habits that enrich your life.
You may spice up your life by
exercising, practicing yoga and trying to learn something new. Be it music, art;
dance anything that makes you feel relaxed. Even a long hot shower, tea and power
nap would do wonders for your otherwise stressed-out life. Good friendships
help you to live longer. It may ward off depression, boost self esteem and
provides emotional support. But be wary of friendships that drain your energy.
A natural detox diet goes a
long way in re energizing your life. It helps you to reduce weight, makes you
power packed and clears foggy thinking and gives you a clear and smart head. Before
you go on a detox ask your doctor’s advice. Talking about diet the foods that
raise your energy quotient are apples, whole grains, nuts, lean meats, salmon,
fresh leafy green vegetables, fruits, coffee, tea and dark chocolate.
It is necessary that you stay
smiling and positive to attract positive energy from the universe. Smiling helps
you to look successful. Being positive and happy encourages you to have better
relationships and leads to greater well-being.
Making alterations to your personality
makeup can re vitalize your life. Things like getting more spiritual, visiting
a place of worship often enhances your well-being. A study found people who
attended church more than once a week had higher levels of key immune system protein
than those who did not attend church. They also tended to live longer.
Re energizing your life also
includes being conscientious, having healthy habits, developing a sense of
gratitude, purpose and forgiveness. You should also create a work-leisure
balance. This can be achieved by building down time in your busy schedule,
dropping people or activities which have no value, outsourcing any consuming house
hold chores and building relaxation into your daily life. Once in a while it is
better to do a spring cleaning of your life and clean all the dirt, debris and
clutter in the various closets of life to re energize and attain your maximum
potential in all walks of it.
