When was the last time you sat down to introspect about the life that you are leading? When you grappled with questions that made you stop and think deeply?
While the spread of the pandemic has been unfortunate, one of the many positives it has bought to those of us who are unaffected is the time to slow down and be more conscious about how we are leading our lives.
Many of us tend to go on leading our lives as if we will live forever, and this approach keeps us postponing the things we want to do, for some time in the future.
In this blog post, I’d like to invite you to look within and ask yourself some questions. Now I know you may be tempted to run through these questions and answer them mentally. But what I’d encourage you to do is to grab a book and a pen, and write the answers down.
Because as you start writing, you may bring forth answers that lie beneath your conscious awareness and even surprise yourself with the answers that you may write. So let’s get begin.
What is the biggest lesson I have learned over the past 5 years?
What activity/activities make me lose track of time, my worries, concerns, and absorbs my full attention?
How would I spend my time if I had no access to the internet for a month?
What are the 3 things that matter to me the most?
How am I taking care of my physical and mental health every day?
How would I spend my time if I had only a week/month/year to live?
What are the things I am doing/not doing in my life because of the fear of other people’s opinions?
If there were no limits, what would I want to be, do and have in my life?
How much of the stuff I buy are things that I really need?
What are some of the things I’d like to spend more/less time doing?
