Stress is widespread nowadays as our jobs become so demanding. The Human resources department of any organization aims to get the most out of every employee while giving him the least amount of money.
I do not blame them for doing so; it is their job, but what is our job?
Our job is to take care of ourselves. Invest time, money, and effort in making our lives easier, happier, and more fulfilling.
How can we do this? Especially when it comes to stress.
How can we stay relaxed when we get stressed? …
We all have those fantastic ideas in our minds that we have never work on. We also have all the reasons that stop us from working on them. Let me tell you a secret; you don’t have to know or work on getting this big picture in your mind. All you have to do is ask yourself the first small step that you can do now using all the resources and knowledge. As simple as that. When you do this little step, the next step will be repeating the same strategy. Before you know it, you will achieve the big…
Let us start by defining mindfulness.
According to the American Psychological Association, mindfulness is
“… a moment-to-moment awareness of one’s experience without judgment. In this sense, mindfulness is a state and not a trait. While it might be promoted by certain practices or activities, such as meditation, it is not equivalent to or synonymous with them (APA, 2012).”
Another excellent definition is: “Mindfulness is the psychological process of bringing one’s attention to the internal and external experiences occurring in the present moment, which can be developed through the practice of meditation and other training (Catherine Moore, 2020).”
Attention is the…
I was reading the book Atomic Habits by James Clear. He compared Hisham Elkaroj and Michael Phelps and how their physical capabilities allowed them to be world-class athletes.
How Hisham has very long legs that helped him be one of the best marathon runners in our edge, and Michael Phelps, one of the best swimmers in history, has a very long upper body compared to his lower body.
This comparison made me question the education system.
We all learn the same materials by the same method, and they expect us to have the same results or at least succeed in…
I was sitting on my desk working on a case, and suddenly, out of nowhere, I had this epiphanic moment when I asked myself, what do I want out of this life? And I liked the most profound answer this time, not a superficial one. Brian Tracy mentioned the five whys method, so I decided to use it. Whichever solution came up, I asked myself why? So I started by I want to excel in my job; why? To get more money, why? To be happy. I asked what else? I answered, a good wife, why?
To share my life…
Imagine if you forgot everything you were told about age, color, race, international boundaries, broken hearts, and failure.
Imagine if you forget everything that you were told about yourself, even if you were the one that told it to yourself. Imagine that you forgot every setback, struggle, rejection, and awkward moment.
Imagine starting fresh new and innocent.
Start everything assuming that you will succeed, start every relationship, and think it will be a fairytale.
How would anyone do this?
It is tough to do, while it should be the easiest and the simplest.
Living with what is in front of…
All the laws of the universe can be broken except the laws of physics and criminal law. So if what you want to do is not conflict with two rules, you should try doing it.
Whenever we want to start something new, all the reasons in the world come to our minds to wait before starting it. Sometimes we say we should have a certain amount of money, a certain age, buy specific equipment, or get a particular certificate. Our minds make these reasons look natural to us until they paralyze us. These reasons are often excuses we make because…
Did you have a crush on someone before?
How old were you?
Do you remember her\his name?
It’s so common nowadays to have a crush on someone or know someone who has a crush.
A crush, if you don’t know, is an instant illogical attraction to a specific person.
Why if you have a crush on someone, then most probably he will break your heart,
As said before, a crush is an illogical attraction; It’s not built on any actual knowledge or connection with this person.
We don’t have a crush on a specific person; we have a crush on…
On a typical warm sunny day, I was sitting in a local coffee shop writing the last chapter of my book about happiness. Enjoying my cup of coffee that every sip of it is waking me up so gently. The warmth of the sun on my skin is like a hug from my mother. The freshness of the air is whispering in my ears. Today is a new day like it is giving everybody a chance at a new life. Everybody is calm, serious, and in a hurry to grab their coffee and go to their jobs.
Suddenly, a beautiful…
