HOW PRICKLY ARE YOU ON A MONDAY MORNING?

0 Comments

Monday morning is a highly stressful day for many people. It is the time when people return to work or school after the weekend. If the weekend was long, such as a three-day weekend because of a public holiday, it could be more stressful than the average end to the weekend.

If returning to work occurs after a holiday, the level of stress can be the most stressful of all. If either work or school is unpleasant or, worse, hated, getting up to go to start the day can be extremely difficult. Even those people who like their job or school can find starting the week a testing experience. If you fall into the category of people who experience this stress and depression on Monday morning you are not alone.

The highest blood pressure levels of a group of people measured over a week were highest on a Monday morning as people got ready for work.

Fear is the cause of stress – nothing else!

Fear is a natural part of us that is part of our system of self-preservation. Accidentally put your finger on a hot kettle, and you´ll see this in full action. Watch a deer´s expression while being chased by a lion – fear is part of every living creature, and this sense will always lead us to try to preserve ourselves. The evolution of the human race is another example of fantastic preservation against all other odds.

IT´S NOT THE JOB THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY – IT´S YOUR ATTITUDE TOWARDS IT

That’s what my Guru – Gururaj Ananda Yogi taught me. So true!

Here´s a few more pointers to help you start your day perfectly and keep it on track!

• Meditate before you go to work
• Always do the most difficult and challenging tasks first on arrival at work
• As your mind wanders to the negative – push those negative thoughts away
• Focus on the job or task in hand and not on the one that needs to be done next
• Ensure you have in your head your priorities related to your duties, tasks or to-dos
• You might have a long task list – action each by priority
• Use a favourite pen if you are writing or taking notes
• Have your personal space just right – comfy chair, right height screen, tidy desk etc
• Ignore social media and do not be a slave to your phone
• Enjoy and become absorbed in what you are doing – absorption brings satisfaction
• Balance time constraints so you are organised and not under pressure
• Do any spiritual practices you have been prescribed during the day to maintain energy levels
• Don´t forget your evening meditation
Remember:
Repetitive Tasks can seem tedious but everything has a need, so have the right attitude toward them

  • REGULARITY HAS PROVEN BENEFITS
    As you will well remember, I was for many, many years one of those typical semi-meditators - always absolutely loving the Togatherings (Deepening Retreats) where I managed to renew myself spiritually every time and for a few weeks afterwards made a great effort to TRY and do two meditations a day - but inevitably slipping back to one a day (if that ) because my day was just so busy at certain times of the year etc.

    And I TRULY believed it was impossible to fit in two 25/30-minute sessions a day. I was too tired in the evenings; summer was a work nightmare for my business, there were too many distractions from daily life and so on. Basically, just excuses as Jasmini always told me.

    Anyway, since about 12 months ago I have FINALLY managed to make myself a routine and stick to it - and become a regular meditator twice a day. And the results have been absolutely spectacular - I can't tell you the transformation in my everyday existence since then.

    At the ripe old age of 60 I have a new energy source that makes me feel 10-15 years younger on most days - everything in the world has more clarity and my decision-making is much better and discrimination becomes so much easier.
    As regards personal relationships, I am far less angry and frustrated by people, seeing the good in almost everyone and deepening my feelings for a lot of people I hold dear.

    Summing up in a nutshell, as the song goes, " love is all around " and it really is an amazing transformation. Totally recommended to everyone!

    Obviously, I would be lying if I said it was easy - it's taken me 10 years almost to finally see the light - and even now some days it is tough - but it gets easier and easier as you see the huge benefits in your life.

    And others also tell you they see the transformation too!

  • The Spiritual Significance of Diwali - Illuminate your inner self

    Diwali is considered a festival of lights, often illustrated by burning candles, firecrackers and fireworks but the soul’s journey from darkness unto light is its the primary symbolism.

    The lights of Diwali further signify inner illumination. Hindus believe that the light of lights, - divine light, is the one that steadily shines in the chambers of the heart and I would agree.

    Meditation is the perfect tool to help us uncover that light that is within and allow it to shine through us. Once we start meditating regularly, more light can shine through to dispel darkness.

    Sitting quietly and meditating brings the supreme light that illuminates the soul. It is an opportunity to unfold, cultivate and enjoy eternal bliss.

    Happy Diwali

    Turn your light on – it’s so easy – let me show you how…
