Mulla Stories #2: Are You Asleep?

Nasrudin was lying on his couch with his eyes closed.

His brother-in-law went up to him and asked, “Are you asleep?”

“Why do you ask?” Nasrudin replied.

“I was wondering if you could lend me three hundred dollars,” said the other.

“Well,” answered Nasrudin, “let’s return to your fist question—‘Am I asleep.’ The answer is yes I am—so leave me alone!“

Minimalist’s Weekend

Recently I wrote an article about Minimalism…

This week I’m just thinking how can we enjoy weekend like a minimalist 😉

“Be more with the less” is the ultimate concept.

Technology fasting!

Turn off technology for at least 24 hours. Be more available for personal connection and enjoy moments with the people around you. Enjoy more relaxation with less distraction.

Create more space

Don’t overschedule your weekend with all the work you have in pending. The work which can be done in parts can be done in weekdays also. Take some time to find yourself, to travel within, to enjoy the nature, the find the cuteness in others, to live.

Slow down

Everyone needs to be slow at some point of time. Give yourself that time and have no time commitment to do things in weekend.

Recreation

Enjoy like a child. Once a work is done, think about a play which will make you cheerful. Write, read, roam, enjoy.

De-stress yourself. Believe someone, Nature or God. Believe problems will be solved. Carrying it in your head will not solve them.

A minimalist will not have much things to sort out tangibly. Have minimalist mind as well.

“There is more to life than increasing its speed.” – Gandhi.

Thanksgiving Day!!!

Every year Thanksgiving Day is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November. This day was historically a religious observation to give thanks to the almighty God. People celebrate this day with a great zeal with their family and friends..

Thanksgiving Day is a time to feel gratitude for the good things in life. If we pause a moment to think what we have to thank in our life, it is absolutely true that we need to thank every good and bad things that happened to us. Thank everyone, good or bad, who has made us to be what we are today.

Like good people support and motivate us, bad attitude people teach us lesson from their behaviour. Every situation designed around us teach us, favours us, pampers us and most importantly makes us live.

Thank your family and friends for being with you and supporting you through all ups and downs, tolerating our nonsenses, motivating in our tough times, and what not?

Thank your colleagues for making your day good by supporting in every aspect inside workplace. Thank every person in your life even if they have done a very little favour to you.

We should not forget to thank the people who are with us every day helping us in some way but we don’t give much attention to them. Say, bus drivers, conductors, servers…

Let it be a perfect thanksgiving to everyone starting from God to every single human being, pets, nature and everything which makes our life more beautiful.

By the way, don’t stop reading. There is an extra benefit in being thankful 😉 It improves your overall immunity and gives us peace of mind. Spread thanks!

Thank you 🙂

thank-you

Minimalism – Less things, More happiness

Today I got an opportunity to read an article about Minimalism which inspired me to write about that. Let me take this  opportunity to spread this concept to few more people around us.

Many of the people who left their home town due to various reasons such as education, work etc.. may have got an chance to live such life without knowing about this concept and have enjoyed the fruits of it also.

Let’s take a moment to think how many alternatives we have for a particular purpose. Say, to listen to music, we normally listen music in TV or mobile. In case we use mobile to listen to music, we have ear phones and head set. If we purchase head set while having an ear phone, then it is an alternative which can be avoided. Lessening such excessive items are the first step to minimalism.

  • Less is More

Owning less brings some amazingly-practical advantages into our lives. It costs less. It requires less energy and time to maintain. We can easily maintain the home, have less cleaning work, more organized living place.  It brings freedom, peace, and calm in the mind. Most importantly, we can create space for what is important. We can focus more on health and hobbies than concentrating on debts and possessions!

  • Minimalism is not a goal

Minimalism is not a goal. It is about removing more material possessions and adding more value to your life. It is a tool which helps us to strip away what is not important and give attention to what is valuable.

Edwin Way Teale. “Reduce the complexity of life by eliminating the needless wants of life, and the labors of life reduce themselves.”

  • Try out!

Try having 33 items of clothing including your clothes and accessories. When you are travelling out for 4 days, try taking 2 clothes. Instead of 2 pairs of shoes try taking one. Just minimalism!

Enjoy the happiness of travelling with less burden and cherish the moments without putting much attention for the luggage’s you carry.

Steve jobs once said, “My style is a distillation. I’ve etched out who I am through myriad haircut attempts, outfit attempts, beauty attempts, diet attempts. It’s been an evolution. I’ve let my hair go gray. I wear only black and white. Every year I buy three or four black dresses that I just keep in rotation. I own one pair of blue jeans. I’ve given away all my jewelry, because I don’t wear it. [It’s] Function over frivolity. Clean living. Clean lines.”
