Change Your Beliefs Change Your Life CYBCYLcom - YouTube

Hello world,

In the so called new normal where COVID-19 is rolling over all screen around the world, we must not forget to pay sufficient attention to ourselves and love once. From my side I went to do some research which I am sharing in this blog item. I do hope that you as reader and follower can find yourself in the different circumstances. I wish you happy reading. It’s all about you yourself and your environment.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS ARE LASTING

If you were raised by parents who continually told you what a good person you were, who loved you, encouraged you, supported you, and believed in you, no matter what you did or didn’t do, you would grow up with the belief that you were a good and valuable person. By the age of three, this belief would lock in and become a fundamental part of the way you view yourself in relation to your world. Thereafter, no matter what happens to you, you would hold to this belief. It would become your reality.

If you were raised by parents who did not know how powerful their words and behaviors could be in shaping your personality, they could very easily have used destructive criticism, disapproval, and physical or emotional punishment to discipline or control you. When a child is continually criticized at an early age, he soon concludes that there is something wrong with him. He doesn’t understand why it is that he is being criticized or punished, but he assumes that his parents know the truth about him, and that he deserves it. He begins to feel that he is not valuable or lovable. He is not worth very much. He must therefore be worthless.

Almost all personality problems in adolescence and adulthood are rooted in what psychologists refer to as love withheld. The child needs love like roses need rain. When children feel unloved, they feel unsafe and insecure. They think, “I’m not good enough.” They begin to engage in compensatory behaviors to make up for this inner anxiety. This sense of love deprivation is manifested in misbehavior, personality problems, bursts of anger, depression, hopelessness, lack of ambition, and problems with people and relationships.

YOU ARE BORN UNAFRAID


The child is born with no fears, except those of falling and loud noises. All other fears have to be taught to the child as he or she grows up.

The two major fears we all develop are the fear of failure or loss and the fear of criticism or rejection. We begin to learn the fear of failure if we are continually criticized and punished when we try some- thing new or different. We are shouted at and told, “No! Get away from there! Stop that! Put that down!” Physical punishment and the withholding of love, possibilities that scare us and make us feel insecure, often accompany these shouts and criticisms.

We soon begin to believe that we are too small, too weak, incompetent, inadequate, and incapable of doing anything new or different. We express this feeling with the words, “I can’t, I can’t, I can’t.” Whenever we think about doing something new or challenging, we automatically respond with feelings of fear, trembling, and a churning stomach. We react exactly as if we are afraid of getting a spanking. We say, “I can’t” over and over.

The fear of failure is the primary reason for failure in adult life. As the result of destructive criticism in childhood, we hold ourselves back as adults. We sell ourselves short. We quit before we even try the first time. Instead of using our amazing minds to figure out how to get what we want, we use our reasoning ability to create reasons why we can’t, and why the things we want are not possible for us.

THE NEED TO BE LOVED


The second major fear that holds us back, undermines our confidence, and destroys our desire for a happy life is the fear of rejection, and its expression, criticism. This emotion is learned in early childhood as the result of our parents expressing disapproval of us whenever we do something they don’t like, or don’t do something that they expect. As a result of our displeasing them, they become angry and withdraw the love and approval we need so much as children.

The fear of being unloved and alone is so traumatic for a child that she soon conforms her behavior to do whatever she thinks her parents will approve of. She loses her spontaneity and uniqueness. She begins to think, “I have to! I have to! I have to!” She concludes, “I have to do whatever Mommy and Daddy want me to, or they won’t love me, and I’ll be all alone!”

CONDITIONAL LOVE


As an adult, a child raised with what is called “conditional love” (as opposed to unconditional love, the greatest gift one person can give to another) becomes hypersensitive to the opinions of others. In its extreme form, he cannot do anything if there is the slightest chance that someone else may not approve. He projects his childhood relationship with his parents onto the important people in his adult life—spouse, boss, relatives, friends, authority figures—and tries desperately to earn their approval, or at least not lose it.

The fears of failure and rejection, caused by destructive criticism in early childhood, are the root causes of most of our unhappiness and anxiety as adults. We feel, “I can’t!” or “I have to!” continually. The worst feeling is when we feel, “I can’t, but I have to!” or “I have to, but I can’t!”

We want to do something, but we are afraid of failure or loss, or if we are not afraid of loss, we are afraid of disapproval. We want to do something to improve our lives, at work or at home, but we are afraid that we may fail, or that someone else may criticize us, or both.

For most people, their fears govern their lives. Everything they do is organized around avoiding failure or criticism. They think continually about playing it safe, rather than striving for their goals. They seek security rather than opportunity.

DOUBLE YOUR RATE OF FAILURE


Once an author named by Arthur Gordon approached Thomas J. Watson Sr., the founder of IBM, and asked him how he could succeed faster as a writer. Thomas J. Watson, one of the giants of American business, replied with these profound words: “If you want to be successful faster, you must double your rate of failure. Success lies on the far side of failure.”

The fact is that the more you have already failed, the more likely it is you are on the verge of great success. Your failures have prepared you to succeed. This is why a streak of good luck seems to follow a streak of bad luck. When in doubt, “double your rate of failure.  ”The more things you try, the more likely you are to triumph. You overcome your fears only by doing the thing you fear until the fear has no more control over you.

 

YOUR MENTAL HARD DRIVE


Everything you know about yourself, all your beliefs, are recorded on the hard drive of your personality, in your self-concept. Your self-concept precedes and predicts your levels of performance and effectiveness in everything you do. Because of the law of correspondence, you always behave on the outside in a manner consistent with your self-concept on the inside. All improvement in your life therefore begins with an improvement in your self-concept.

You have an overall self-concept that is made up of all your beliefs about yourself and your abilities. This bundle of beliefs includes all the experiences, decisions, successes, failures, ideas, information, emotions, and opinions of your life up to now. This general self-concept determines how and what you think and feel about yourself, and measures how well you are doing in general.

YOUR MINI-SELF-CONCEPTS


You have a series of “mini-self-concepts” as well. These mini-self- concepts combine to make up your overall self-concept. You have a self-concept for every area of your life that you consider important. This mini-self-concept determines how you think, feel, and perform in that area.

For example, you have a self-concept for how healthy and fit you are, and how much you eat or exercise. You have a self-concept for how likable and popular you are with others, especially with members of the opposite sex. You have a self-concept for what kind of a spouse or parent you are, for how good a friend you are to your friends, how smart you are, and how well you learn. You have a self- concept for every sport you play, and for every activity you engage in, including how well you drive your car.

You have a self-concept for how well you do your work, and for how well you do each part of your work. You have a self- concept for how much money you make and how well you save and invest it. This is a critical area. The fact is that you can never earn much more or less than your self-concept level of income. If you want to make more money, you have to change your beliefs about yourself relative to income and money. 

CHANGE YOUR BELIEFS

In every case, if you want to change your performance and your results in any area of your life, you have to change your self- concept—or your beliefs about yourself—for that area. Fortunately, your beliefs are largely subjective. They are not always based on facts. Instead, they are based largely on information you have taken in and accepted as true, sometimes with very little evidence or proof.

The very worst beliefs you can have are self-limiting beliefs of any kind. These are beliefs about yourself that cause you to feel somehow limited or deficient in a particular area. These beliefs are seldom true, but if you accept them as valid estimates of your ability, they become true for you, exactly as if they were correct.

The starting point of unlocking your potential, and accomplishing more than you ever have before, is for you to challenge your self- limiting beliefs. You begin this process of freeing yourself from self-limiting beliefs by imagining that, whatever they are, they are completely untrue. Imagine for the moment that you have no limitations on your abilities at all. Imagine that you could be, do, or have anything you really wanted in life. Imagine that your potential is unlimited in any way. For example, imagine that you could be earning twice as much as you are earning today. Imagine that you could be living in a bigger house, driving a better car, and enjoying a more expensive lifestyle.

Imagine that you have the ability to be one of the top people in your field. Imagine that you are one of the most popular, powerful, and persuasive personalities in your social and business world. Imagine that you are calm, confident, and unafraid of anything. Imagine that you could set and achieve any goal you put your mind to. This is how you begin changing your thinking and changing your life.

The starting point of eliminating your fears, and releasing your potential, is to reprogram your mental hard drive with new, positive, constructive, and courageous beliefs about yourself and your future. I really hope that you learned something more now you have read this blog.

Feel free to drop me your comments and maybe your very own COVID-19 lifestyle experiences. It will be highly appreciated. Thank you in advanced. Stay Safe and Blessings.

Social Distancing, Quarantine, and Isolation

The measures we need to take because of the coronavirus do little to establish a positive relationship with the people we interact with. We know that we have to keep a meter and a half away and that we definitely shouldn’t touch other people. At the moment we are actually approaching others as if they are (potentially) sick and contagious and pose a danger to our health. Rationally we understand why we do this, but on the emotional level there is a mismatch. Strangers in particular feel as unattractive.

Others are dirty and maybe sick. . .
We are now getting used to the desired distance of one and a half meters. In fact, when we see a lot of people standing together in a previously recorded TV program, it gives a kind of feeling of discomfort. The images from New Zealand where people are cozy together give us a feeling that something is not right. Physical closeness is more likely to evoke disgust at this point. For this reason, many people do not yet like to use public transport. For weeks we programmed our brains with the idea that keeping a meter and a half away protects our health. Now suddenly people pass each other at a short distance. Having to wear a mouth mask doesn’t make it any better. It feels stuffy and seeing it in others confirms a sense of potential danger: others are dirty! or maybe sick . . .

Good Zoom alternatives for video calling

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Let’s Go . .

How Video Calls Are Made For TV - Indi Samarajiva - Medium

What does Zoom have that other video conferencing tools don’t have? Simple, it’s free and just works really well. Moreover, the tool has cool features to get your audience involved. Raise your hand who agrees. But the great popularity of video calling should not be a reason to choose this tool. Now that working remotely is becoming a long-term goal, it may be time to look at the alternatives to Zoom. What other online video conferencing tools have as good a free version as Zoom? I figured it out for you!

Why is Zoom so popular?

100 participants per meeting, high quality HD video and audio, meeting recording in MP4 and M4A format, real-time private and group chat, multi-screen sharing, participant management, breakout rooms for smaller groups, polls, whiteboards, raising hands and mute with the space … The free version of Zoom has it all . It is not without reason that the tool has been used by more than 300 million people every day for the past month . Zoom is especially praised for:

  • the many functionalities of the free version
  • the quality of the audio / video and the connection speed ( latency of max. 150 milliseconds) with relatively low bandwidth.
  • the simplicity of installation and use
  • sharing the screen by multiple users
  • the good chat function
  • the different ways in which you can invite participants
  • the different devices on which you can use Zoom

What are Zoom’s negatives?

There is little criticism of Zoom. A few negatives that users mention are:

  • The time limit of 40 minutes in the free version for 3 or more users
  • Concerns about the safety of online video conferencing with Zoom
  • The Zoom app can be improved
  • Too little choice of virtual backgrounds
  • No possibility to share screen or whiteboard in the break-out rooms
  • No permanent link per meeting room
  • Apple AirPods as audio does not work
  • No live streaming of video recordings on Youtube or Facebook

5 alternatives to Zoom

Based on the qualities that users highlight in their reviews, I looked for good alternatives to Zoom. All the alternatives for online video conferencing below are therefore characterized by high customer satisfaction (at least 4.4 out of 5 stars) based on at least 70 verified reviews from business users at software comparison site Capterra. All 5 alternatives, like Zoom, have the following features in their free version:

  • video conference and audio conference
  • realtime chat
  • share screen
  • cloud based
  • accessible via a browser (so no installation required) and a mobile app (iOS and Android)

The order of the list says nothing about the arrangement of the video conference tools.

WE CONTINUE

1. Free conference call: the alternative with the best functions for recording & sharing documents.

Free Conference Call (FFC) has over 800,000 customers and offers free video and audio meetings for up to 1000 participants (Zoom up to 100 participants). You can easily switch presenters and there are some nice features such as the presentation tool Studio, and the live streaming of conferences on the internet. The Freeconferencecall price plan works on a voluntary basis! The video screen shows the active speaker and 5 other participants in the sidebar arranged based on how often the participant speaks. Web Viewer is required to participate via the browser.

Features of the free version

  • 1000 free participants per audio or video meeting
  • Mobile app and desktop app
  • Recording and playback of meetings
  • Drawing tools and whiteboard, chat tools
  • Meeting Wall where you can upload documents and recordings to share with participants
  • Live streaming of conferences
  • Remote desktop function
  • Integration with Google Calendar, Outlook, Slack, Dropbox, Evernote and more
  • Conversation reports
  • Break-out rooms

What does Freeconference Call have that Zoom does not have?

  • 1000 participants
  • No time limit at meetings
  • 24/7 customer service
  • Free international and local dial-in numbers for audio meetings
  • 1GB free storage
  • Free live streaming

What do business users say about Freeconferecencall?

FFC users are very enthusiastic about the large number of participants per audio or video conference. That also makes FFC a very suitable tool for webinars. In addition, there are good recording and playback options and you get 1 GB of free storage. Users are also satisfied with keeping the same dial-in number. The interface could be a bit more user-friendly.

2. Lifesize: the alternative to video calling without a time limit

The free version of Lifesize offers unlimited free video meetings for an unlimited duration up to 25 participants. In addition to video calling software, Lifesize also offers a whole set of video and audio hardware to equip physical meeting rooms. They are the only vendor that supports cloud video calling and content sharing in 4K resolution. When using Lifesize hardware, independent updates of other components such as PC, TV, camera, speakers, microphone or tablet are no longer required. All calls and recordings are made with an encrypted connection. You can connect directly from the browser or via the Lifesize app. Upgrade costs start at $ 12.50 (around € 11) per host per month. Some of Lifesize’s major customers include NASA, Toyota, Yale and Disney.

Features of the free version

  • Unlimited number of meetings and of unlimited duration
  • 25 participants
  • Personal meeting ID
  • 1-on-1 chat and group chat
  • Integration with Slack and Skype for Business
  • Online support and community forum
  • Link to email and calendar

What does Lifesize have that the free version of Zoom doesn’t have?

  • Meetings without time limit

What do business users say about Lifesize?

Lifesize users are very pleased with the high video quality of this tool and the user-friendly interface. The chat function, on the other hand, could have a few more features, such as rich text and images. And there is no native app for Linux systems.

3. Google Meet: the innovative alternative with AI features

Google Meet is the new name for Hangouts Meet, and Google Chat is the new name for Hangouts Chat. It is a safe online video conferencing solution because the tool uses the same infrastructure as Google Cloud to secure data and protect privacy. The free version of Google Meet requires signing in with a Google account. Paying customers with a G-Suite account have Meet enabled by default and can also invite people who do not have a Google account to participate. Inviting participants is via an email with a link or meeting ID.

Meet has some original AI features that the other video conferencing tools don’t have. You can filter out sounds from your environment (for example, if you are in a cafe) and you can switch on live English subtitles. To provide the best video quality, Google Meet automatically adjusts your network speed. Until September 3, you can use the G-Suite essential or enterprise plan for free, after which the costs start at $ 10 (around € 8.80) per user per month.

Features of the free version:

  • No time limit on the duration of meetings until September 30, 2020 (normally the limit is 60 minutes per meeting)
  • 100 participants
  • Participate from a browser
  • Live subtitling of meetings in English
  • Unlimited number of meetings
  • Online self-help and community forums
  • Customizable layouts
  • Google Docs, Spreadsheets and Forms
  • 15GB Drive storage

What does Google Meet have that the free version of Zoom doesn’t have?

  • The same high security and privacy as Cloud and two-factor authentication.
  • Live subtitling of meetings in English.
  • The usual features you get when creating a Google account (Docs, Sheets, forms and 15GB storage).

What do business users say about Google Meet?

Google Meet users find the tool very user-friendly and easy, because it can be operated from Gmail and G-Suite. Meet also offers good synchronization with all devices connected to your Google account (for receiving notifications and messages, for example). Downside is that there is no recording option in the free version (because of corona, that feature is now free until September 30, by the way) and some users are having trouble mastering the screen sharing. Users also report that Meet works less well in non-Chrome browsers such as Internet Explorer because it is a Google product.

4. Zoho Meeting: the alternative to involve your audience

Zoho Meeting for online video conferencing and webinars has features for presenter change, polls, recordings, and account management reports. The free version has a lot of planning tools and tools to get your audience involved, but no way to record or save meetings. The free version also has a very limited number of participants. An upgrade costs € 8 per month per host for 100 participants. That’s cheaper than most of the other tools on this list.

Features of the free version

  • 2 participants for meetings and 10 for webinars
  • Planning tools: add to calendar, confirm, set reminders
  • Moderator features: turn participants on / off sound, remove participants
  • Features for the involvement of participants: taking polls, raising hands, question & answer
  • Co-presenters in webinars
  • Analysis and reports
  • Encrypted transmissions with SSL / 128-bit AES protocols

What does Zoho Meeting have in the free version that Zoom doesn’t have?

  • Export analysis and reports for webinars
  • Two-factor authentication
  • Part of a very comprehensive suite of business applications (CRM, Campaigns, Desk, etc.) and can therefore be linked to other systems for better business processes.

What do business users say about Zoho Meetings?

Zoho Meeting users find it a budget-friendly tool if, for example, you do not use the tool every day, but for monthly webinars. Screen sharing and switching is easy. The tool is very user-friendly and easy to start and integrates well with Zoho CRM. The downside is that Zoho Meeting is completely web-based and there is no desktop app.

5. Cisco Webex: the alternative for every device & participate in every possible way

Webex is very similar to Zoom and also has a lot of functionalities in the free version. Maybe that’s because the founder of Zoom (Eric Yuan) worked at Webex before it was acquired by Cisco in 2007. In addition to video calling, you can also organize events and webinars with it. Webex is slightly cheaper than Zoom. Upgrade costs start at € 12.85 per month per host for 100 participants. And there is now a 4-month free offer on the annual plan. Reviews show that Webex is not the most user-friendly tool. Connection can be via the web app, desktop app or browser.

Features of the free version

  • Up to 100 participants
  • Time limit of 50 minutes per meeting
  • Switch screens easily during screen sharing
  • Private and group chats during meetings
  • Recording
  • Own meeting room
  • Moderator functionalities
  • Interactive boards
  • Online support
  • Dial-up number
  • Integration with Salesforce, Microsoft Office, Teams, Slack, Canvas and Moodle.

What does Cisco Webex have that the free version of Zoom doesn’t have?

  • Online support versus ticket support at Zoom
  • Time limit of 50 minutes instead of 40 minutes

What do business users say about Cisco Webex?

Cisco Webex users say that Webex works well on both mobile and PC. The automatic adjustment of the meeting time to time zones is very useful for meetings with colleagues in other countries. They are less enthusiastic about the price, which is on the high side compared to other tools. Sometimes the connection via Google Calendar is not automatic and the meeting ID still has to be entered manually. There are also some complaints about image quality and bandwidth with slower networks.

Do you have experience with one of these tools? Or do you have another tooltip? Let me please know in the comments.

At any time of the day, there are an infinite number of things that are out of your control, at the same time there are things that you do have control over. How well can you make a distinction here? How often do you ask yourself this question? And where do you invest all your attention, life force and energy in? Nowadays it is too easy to get distracted by all the things you have no control over, while you could have used the 24 hours of the day for anything you could have made a positive difference: for yourself, your family, teams , community and everything else that is dear to you.

2: Invest in, and be careful with your buffer of positivity

How easy or difficult do you make it for yourself to build up a buffer of positivity to better deal with the inevitable setbacks in life? How well do you know what gives you a positive kick in life, not because it was talked about by others, but because you really feel it yourself? When you hear a negative message, how do you prevent it from seeming unnecessarily worse than it actually is? How critically do you assess your initial interpretation of the topic (personal or impersonal), the magnitude of the problem (large or small), and the temporality (long or short)? And when everything seems to go wrong, how well do you manage to build up your buffer with a feeling of gratitude for moments from the past? 

3: Focus on talents that energize you

There are some skills you are not good at, and there are skills that you are better at. There are skills that do not energize you, and there are skills that do energize you. How well do you know yourself in this regard? How can you use your talented people more often per week, and make your environment aware so that you don’t question skills that cost you energy? Which hidden talents that give you energy would you like to develop further at work and beyond?  

4: Care about yourself and others

How do others know that you are there for them, especially in difficult times? When someone shares a problem, do you only address the words the other person is saying, or do you also pay attention to the underlying emotional message (s)? How well can you place these feelings in the context of the other person’s life? How do you ensure that you keep your attention with the other person and not let the conversation be hijacked by yourself or others who have had a similar experience? How do you let yourself experience that you are not alone and that there are others who care about you?
 
5: Find meaning in everyday moments

From building something important for society to preventing something unwanted from private, how well can you see every moment of the day you are contributing? “Those who have a  why have can (almost) any  how  endure “has the same physical act another inner experience entail depend on the meaning can you give it Unlike simple times have difficult moments often extra chances meaning to find.: courage, patience, wisdom, compassion, and other personal qualities can only grow stronger when tested 

6: Celebrate successes with every step

In uncertain times, the finish line is not always in sight, and there is a lack of prospect of improvement in the short term. Plans change, and a lot of (knowledge) work is not immediately visible or tangible. In addition, if the elements of the previous lessons are missing, it can be easy to lose the motivation to continue. That is why it is extra important to clarify and celebrate every step forward. This can be done with others or alone. This can be planned or spontaneous. This can be big or small. Looking back at the week, it is quite clear what went wrong, but how often do you also think about what did work? What went easier than expected? And how do you set the bar for success at the right height, so that it is high enough to mean something, but also accessible enough to experience?

Imagination and Reality Look Different in the Brain | Live Science

The world as tabula rasa, yes as a blank page.

Let us imagine a new world together.
A world in which economic growth is no longer a fetish, but concern for people and the planet is paramount.
A world in which the economy is embedded in a society, and not the other way around.
A world in which people are more than just means.
A world in which paid work, family life and personal development can thrive harmoniously.

We want to imagine such a world.
Now more than ever.
All together, sure we all together.

Are you bored in this COVID-19 PERIOD? Use it to your advantage

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail

One is too busy to get bored, while the other slowly but surely no longer knows what to do with himself. Do you recognize yourself in the latter? Then this is the time to look at the deeper layer that lies beneath your boredom. If you get bored you can easily use that to your advantage, you just have to know how.

Researchers around the world are trying to figure out exactly what causes boredom, what we can do about it and whether there is a link between boredom and depression. Lead researcher and psychology professor James Danckert describes boredom as follows: “We define boredom as an uncomfortable desire to be busy with something, but fail to fulfill that desire.” So this definition may well explain why you might get bored during this corona crisis, since your routine is upset and your sense of freedom is limited. You are not alone in it, me too and more people around the globe.

Emotions

Before we can get deeper into boredom, ask yourself if you are really bored. You can also confuse boredom with emotions such as fear or fatigue. Try to identify what you feel to find out.

Change it

In essence, boredom tries to tell you that you don’t spend your time the way you actually want it to. It is an important signal that you want to change the situation. Whenever you get bored, remember that you probably need and can change something about the situation. What counts is the action you take after this awareness, which can keep you busy and make you a more creative and successful person.

BOREDOM – AN EXCELLENT TIME FOR INTROSPECTION.

And we don’t like that very much, because who knows what deep-seated problems will emerge as soon as we take the time to get bored.

We don’t like boredom for three reasons:

  • First of all, boredom gives us a sense of concern – “something is missing”. We are so used to being amused by a constant stream of external stimuli that when they are missing we experience the feeling that something is not right.
  • In addition, boredom triggers our ‘fear response’ . We find it scary to be alone with our thoughts, fearing that they would be confrontational. To keep out the mirror that keeps boredom out, you stay busy – whether it is really productive or fun .
  • Finally, boredom forces you to step out of your comfort zone , which feels unnatural. As soon as you realize that you may have to do a number of things differently , in order to feel lively – for example, even after starting to read/write that book – it is safer to maybe watch some good series after all.
  •  

To shake off these feelings above, you should therefore quickly turn to external stimuli such as Netflix, your smartphone or another distractor to avoid feeling this boredom 

So a luxury problem, boredom. We have so many options to choose what we want to spend our attention and time on that we get overwhelmed when we don’t use it – we get bored .

That’s why you take every opportunity to stay busy. You do not notice the boredom (and dissatisfaction) and therefore do not have to be alone with any confrontational thoughts.

So in order to reap the benefits of boredom – an opportunity for introspection – you should not look for more stimuli and novelty, but as little as possible.

WAYS TO GET INVOLVED IN YOUR BOREDOM

So you are not going to build a vegetable garden. What is it? Absolutely nothing except a good put to reorganize your thoughts in order.

  • Meditate regularly – make room   for confrontational thoughts.

Meditation would have been the last thing on your mind if you wanted to tackle boredom.

Now that you know that boredom is a mental state , it may make sense that meditation helps you see boredom differently. It helps you to understand that boredom is not a threatening thing, and it helps you place those negative and confrontational thoughts.

Meditating gives you the opportunity to look at the underlying causes why you avoid rest and are always busy.

And that doesn’t have to be lengthy sessions –   5 minutes a day is enough to use the unrest that boredom creates as a moment of introspection.

  • Get creative with your thoughts –   let them run wild.

Instead of looking for external stimulus, use your boredom to feed your brain with creativity. After all, as soon as you are bored, your thoughts get the chance to roam freely – allow it.

So stop entertaining yourself with your smartphone and see where your thoughts are stranded. Write them down, articulate them using ‘free writing’ or capture them in color – in a mind map for example!
