Choose to be happy. Choose to see things positively. Every decision we make is one we cannot get back, so choose wisely. Life truly is what you make of it.

Tips for Cultivating Calmness

1. Try and develop a calm morning ritual instead of starting the day off in a stressful rush.

2. Notice how you tend to automatically respond to a stressful or irritating person or event.

3. Decide to not take things personally; be the kind of person who it’s hard to offend.

4. Develop an attitude of gratitude – and decide to be thankful for the little things in life.

5. Develop healthy ways of coping with stress (as stress is an inevitable part of life.)

6. Single task instead of multitasking (as it leads to fewer mistakes in the end.)

7. Make more time for quiet and reduce the constant noise.

Sometimes it’s good to just live life silently. Pay attention to your thoughts as they come and go, and reflect upon your feelings. Sometimes being overly social can offset our inner peace.

One cannot keep secrets from oneself, no matter how hard one tries. You may currently be doing things a certain way and telling your conscious mind that it is correct, however, your deeper self can always tell the difference. Your deeper self can see through all lies you may tell yourself. Thus, banish all secrets that you keep. Be completely open and truthful towards who you are.

There is no place you cannot see.
No destination you cannot reach.
No dream you cannot achieve.
