battery recharge

Meet Marzi. She’s an introvert who often finds herself in awkward situations. Marzi used to feel strange about her introverted tendencies. Not anymore! Now she knows that there are tons of introverts out there just like her–introverts who enjoy peace and quiet, need time alone to recharge their battery, and who prefer staying in with their pet and a good book to awkward social interactions.

Just like Marzi, these introverts can often be found in libraries, at home watching Netflix, brainstorming excuses to miss your next party, or doodling cute cartoons. Being an introvert in an extrovert world isn’t always easy, but it certainly is an adventure. In Introvert Doodles, follow Marzi through all of her most uncomfortable, charming, honest, and hilarious moments that everyone–introvert, extrovert, or somewhere in between–can relate to.

7 Questions to Ask When You’re Feeling Overwhelmed

1. Which of these tasks should I prioritise? Do what’s most important first, and the pressure will subside.

2. Would I achieve more if I got some extra sleep? If you’re too tired to work then you’re usually less productive.

3. Are other people sucking the life out of me? Are there certain individuals who’re demanding too much time?

4. Is there anything at all that I can delegate? Do I have to do it all, or do the whole thing on my own?

5. Have I taken on too much on because “I don’t let people down”, or I’m afraid of saying “no”; or do I fear the negative reactions of others?

6. Is my space full of clutter, and that’s adding to my stress? Do I need to tidy up, or just get rid of some old stuff?

7. Can I withdraw, or take time off to recharge my batteries? Do I really need a break, and need the chance to be refreshed? Would I likely perform better if I made time for self care

Magickal Batteries

I don’t know about anyone else, but my energy fluctuates a lot. So I came up with the idea of magickal batteries.

Magickal batteries act as a sort of storage for energy. They can be jars, jewelry, even food if it’s for a quick battery. They’re used to recharge your energy.

To charge a magickal battery:

  • Keep it near/put in it clear quartz crystals
  • Let it bathe in the light of the sun and moon
  • Bury it for a day, then dig it back up
  • Whenever you have excess energy, hold the battery and charge it
  • Burn incense near it
  • Have sex/orgasm near it
  • Fill it with/keep it near herbs

To use a magickal battery:

  • Sleep with it
  • If it’s food, eat it
  • Shake it
  • Wear it
  • Hold it in your non-dominant hand

Anyway, I hope this inspired you! Feel free to repost and add things.

11:11… i wished for more moments like yesterday, it was so nice to celebrate my friend’s birthday with a picnic at the park. time to go back to work now though!

june study challenge day 10: are there any friends or study buddies you’ve had who have been particularly helpful in your academic life? well, i’m really not a group study kind of person, so i’ll often shut myself in my room for entire days on end rather than find a study buddy. that said, my friends’ greatest contribution to my studies is probably keeping me sane and happy and recharging my batteries by having fun breaks together!

10 Signs You’re an Introvert

1. You find small talk incredibly cumbersome.

Introverts are notoriously small talk-phobic, as they find idle chatter to be a source of anxiety, or at least annoyance. For many quiet types, chitchat can feel disingenuous.

“Let’s clear one thing up: Introverts do not hate small talk because we dislike people,” Laurie Helgoe writes in “Introvert Power: Why Your Inner Life Is Your Hidden Strength.” “We hate small talk because we hate the barrier it creates between people.”

2. You go to parties -– but not to meet people.

If you’re an introvert, you may sometimes enjoy going to parties, but chances are, you’re not going because you’re excited to meet new people. At a party, most introverts would rather spend time with people they already know and feel comfortable around. If you happen to meet a new person that you connect with, great — but meeting people is rarely the goal.

Steve Aoki: the man who works 361 days a year - BBC News
"When I'm not in the studio or touring and playing shows, I get fidgety," says DJ and producer Steve Aoki.

Next time you feel like a bit of a moan about how few holidays you get, spare a thought for DJ and producer Steve Aoki who plays 300 plus shows a year and takes less than an average working week off.

Okay, we understand the idea of travelling the globe and playing music to thousands of gibbering clubbers may not seem like work to most punters but the income tax man would beg to differ.

Anyway, we tracked Steve down on his uber-short vacation ahead of the Grammys where a Netflix film about his hectic lifestyle called I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead was nominated in the documentary category.

Steve also recently collaborated with One Directioner Louis Tomlinson on the track Just Hold On.

Steve, we’re speaking to you in Aspen, Colorado, how is it going?

It’s beautiful, I have a view of the mountains and the trees, it’s really nice.

Are you a country person at heart then or are you a city boy?

I’m a city boy that romanticises being away from the city.

300 shows a year and just four days off, is that all it takes to recharge the batteries?

I’ve got to take a break sometime, so I’m spending the days snowboarding and enjoying myself with my friends, I do that once a year and this is my four days off. I try to enjoy doing my hobbies. You get into a cycle and it becomes awkward when I’m not in the studio or touring and playing shows, I get fidgety, I have to get back into the grind. I’m lucky because I love what I do.

Where are you at your most creative?

That’s an interesting thing because before, I would have to find it in a a particular location but I’ve realised that my inspiration is everywhere I go and I need to be able to harness that and sometimes those moments of creativity are fleeting and you have to try and capture it when it comes. Luckily I get to travel the world and meet amazing creative people and you just have to be in the now and soak it in.

You spend most of the year travelling, what are your must-have travel items?

Just so I can survive, because I don’t have a regular sleep pattern, in order to sleep in a car or a plane, I have my eye-mask, my specific eye-mask, I have this obnoxious pillow I travel with and my headphones.

The most important bit about the eye mask is that it doesn’t touch my eyes so it looks like a bra for a doll, it’s bulging, I should paint some eyeballs on it. I put it on and it’s blacked out. I got my hood up, headphones on, if I’m travelling through Japan or China, I have a face-mask, you can’t tell who I am.

You’re working with the Migos, who were described by Donald Glover as ‘this generation’s Beatles’, what did he mean and do you agree?

I’ve know these guys for a long time, they played a show in Atlanta, we went into the studio and knocked out a song real quick. These guys are amazing, without writing anything down they get an idea and start vibing it out and just nail it in one go.

The thing about music is that you look at The Beatles and throughout history there are very few groups that define a sound and generation. That song Bad and Boujee is definitive of this time in America, of American culture, so I agree with Donald that they represent culture in a really massive way.

You had a new punk-influenced fashion collection showcased during New York fashion week, is this about scaling up 'Steve Aoki’ the brand?

I’ve been involved in fashion in one form or another for a long time, when I was 15 I was screen-printing shirts in my mum’s house for my first band and selling them on the road. So I knew it was something I wanted to do but it took a crazy long time for the Dim Mak collection to be ready.

We wanted to showcase it in the right way and so we turned the runway into a skate ramp so the energy of the [clothing] line was matched visually by what people were seeing as the skaters modelled the clothes.

You didn’t bother training models to skate then?

That would have been a disaster, we got some of New York’s best skaters that really knew how to rep the brand.

Lots of articles claimed New York fashion week was notable for how political some of the shows were. What is it like being a creative person working in Donald Trump’s America? Especially as a second-generation immigrant.

This is probably the worst period of time that I have lived in America, under this dictator-style, fascist president who is pushing his regime and clearing the rights of minorities, immigrants, women, the LGBT community, across the board - there are major steps backwards.

But one thing is for certain - the world is noticing that America itself is coming together and uniting as a voice. That’s why punk happened in the early 70s because it was the voice of protest and rebellion post-Vietnam and now its happening again. We’re having a renaissance. I’m excited about the voices and the people that are going to be speaking out.

There’s a lot of creative spirit, especially in music and the arts and fashion, it’s all part of a larger thing. The Rage Against The Machines of the world, they’re going to come back and inspire more people.

Can we expect some politically-charged material from you?

I can’t help it, it’s in my DNA and I’m not one to sit on the fence especially when something like this has shown its face. When I post something political or anti-Trump on my Facebook, some of the comments I get, you can’t believe how much ignorance is out there.

I might lose some fans by not staying neutral but I don’t have a choice, I have to use my voice.

Astrology isn’t something you “believe” in.

No one says “Do you believe in psychology?” “Do you believe in biology?” “Do you believe in metaphysics?” “Do you believe in zoology?” “Do you believe in engineering?” “Do you believe in sociology?”

Astrology is a science (a social science, or a pseudo science), and it’s not something that requires “belief.“ It’s not a creedal religion.

Christianity requires a belief in the one true God; Vaishnava requires you to believe Vishnu is the one true God, and all others are various reincarnations of him. Astrology has no deities, no moral codes. There’s no rules of conduct, nothing (or no one) we worship. We do not lay claims to knowing the future or past.

Astrology is a set of data. Astrology is a collection of patterns studied vigorously to make predictions about future and past circumstances, and what those may indicate - much like meteorology. 

Astrology is a “science”, a tool, that’s "unverified’ because man lack the ability at this current point in scientific and technological development, in addition to other factors. Perhaps someday this may change; just as Psychology was originally considered a load of horse crap. Once man learned how the brain worked, how hormones and bodily chemicals affect us, studied how our environments mold us, and conducted many other studies - all of which happened quite recently - it became valid.

I believe Astrology will follow down a similar path, with similar results. But for now, let’s step away from the notion that Astrology is about believing in it; it’s about use. 

Either you find Astrology useful, or you don’t. 

Personally, I find it extremely useful. It’s easier for me to say “I have a Moon in Pisces.” than to say “I like time to be alone every now and then. I need to retreat from the world to recharge my batteries. I come back out after a while, but I need isolation.”

Astrology is our language. It’s how we say a lot with only a few words, it’s how we express vast ideas and concepts in an extremely brief sentence. It’s a tool for us to understand and communicate, and hope others understand too. 

Astrology is a tool to gain insight into people that we normally wouldn’t be able

Why We Need Time Alone

1. It allows us to hear, and really listen to, our heart.

2. It helps us to feel – instead of stuffing our emotions.

3. It helps us to decide who we really want to be.

4. It allows us to step back from the pressure to fit in.

5. It frees us from the need to please, or seek others’ approval.

6. It helps us to establish more appropriate boundaries.

7. It allows us to recharge our batteries.

But then fatigue begins to set in… 

And you finally have to give in and recharge to gain back enough spoons to get through the next day!
