Here is the First post of 2020. I will be pushing on more useful , mindful, inspirational , motivational and personality development content to the blog. I appreciate all those who read my blogs and write back to me. I just cannot thank enough for this support and my digitally growing family. For me this blog is more important than any other social media pages I own. I hope you guys will like today’s blog post. Below are the “ 5 Things To Leave Behind In 2020”.
1. Use of Plastic
The World is changing , one part of the world is working very hard to raise the globe temperatures, to multiply the forest fires and contaminate the ocean life. The other part is working towards a clean , non toxic and non life threatening practices to avoid using non biodegradable materials like plastic trying to balance and cool down the blazing global warming that can soon turn half of the planet to debris. Choose your side , Choose your future , Choose your future generations prosperity, Stop using plastic as much as you can. If you stop using it , they will stop making it.
2. Extreme Consumerism
Every day, each of us is bombarded with around 1,600 commercial messages. Most of them are extremely manipulative , they make us believe and build a perspective over a product that we may not actually need , but are attracted to its presentation.
Adopt conscious consumerism , accept the difference between need and want. Buy only those things that need at the moment or in the near future.
3. Not Practicing Mindfulness
But first , what is mindfulness ? . It is our ability to be fully present in the moment , with the person we are talking to , feeling the magical sounds of everyday chores , when your feet touches the ground every time it is important to reach to the magical bond of earthing , sensing your own deep breathes , listening to a conversation with an undivided attention , feeling your fingers when your typing on a laptop etc. All these things are minute , but makes a lot of difference in your overall personality , It creates an aura around yourself. That makes a unique difference and brings you closer to the universe. Practice mindfulness everyday.
4. Not Shutting Down
Yes , not shutting down habits that are not contributing to any betterment or progress , not shutting down self doubt , not shutting down negative thoughts , not shutting down useless criticism and judgements , not shutting down procrastination and not shutting down toxicity ( be it in you or be it in others).Step up to change these things and do a complete shutdown to reset and restart on a fresh note.
5. Taking Social Media Too Seriously.
Any platform is created to connect , socialize , network , share knowledge , inspire , learn , create and have fun. But definitely not to set standards or rules about how your life should be , not to compare , not to rage each other , not to abuse privacy , not to overwhelm , not to overuse , not to invite unsafe situations. Have you ever landed in a situation where you love some quotes , but afraid to share them because somebody might relate to it and make a fuss in their mind that it could be about them. Such is an impact at a personal level. I myself took a step back sometimes , just to make sure I am not hurting anybody. But , we all have to stop taking social media personally. If it is a mere fun , have fun. If it is business , promote and reach audiences. If it is art , create more coz the world needs it. If it is for inspiring self and others , work more towards inspiring and lighting up more mindsets.
