Lifestyle Lessons from Design and Usability
I was outside a movie theatre in Rhode Island New York when I saw this innovative bike rack. It is made from old film projector reels welded on a metal pole. The screening of a film on that type of a projector is obsolete, although there are a handful of art house theaters in New York City and Los Angeles that support it. Using the analogy of the projector reel in the picture, we can rid of old thoughts that contaminate the mind and re-design and upgrade ourselves this year, with the goal to achieve wellness.
How can we stop the thought of fear, worry, comparison, or judgment? The easiest way is to meditate. Meditation helps you observe your thoughts but not becoming attached to them. With meditation, you align with your essence, or else your true self. You release tension and return to tasks with more ease. As you practice daily, you will gain better clarity in tackling day-to-day life challenges.
You may already have experienced meditation in a group setting. Meditation can take place during a gentle yoga class. The church or the temple offers an environment to practice meditation. However, there are things you can do at home.
My favorite form of meditation is observing my breathing. Here’s how you can go about it. Start in a quiet, comfortable place at home. You may be sitting with your feet grounded, palms on your legs, or lying down. Set your smartphone’s timer for five minutes. Close your eyes. Simply start to notice your breathing in and out of your nose. No need to try deep inhales, but continue to breathe, in and out. Thoughts may come in, do not resist them. Maintain the focus on your breathing. Five minutes go by really fast. Do the same meditation for thirty days, at the same time. Write me, let me know how this experience is for you.
Exercise: What is one thing you would want to change your life? Is it your finances, your career, your love relationships, or the way you manage your time? Take some time to think and to write your answer down. Then examine your thoughts. Is it realistic to act on the change you want to see? If not, why not? write it down.
