Feel Good


I often bump into people who seem to be leading a mechanical life. No enthusiasm, no celebration, no thrill or adventure at work or even generally in life.
I love my work but still it seems like a drag, is what most people complain. Life has become a routine and everyday is no different than any other day.

If this is your life, then you must read on. A mechanical life will only lead to mediocre results. To deliver excellence you need to feel good“thrill up” you life, on a daily basis.

If you want to leave the mark of excellence on your day everyday, you must do everything you can, to keep your mind in a peak emotional state. If you feel good, it will show up in your work and your performance. And if you feel terrible, depressed or bored or unmotivated, it will show up as sloppy performance.

Feeling good about yourself, you work, you family or life in general is an ideal state of living. It is after all the characteristic of an emotionally balanced mind and the mark of a creative genius.

Here is your tip number one to hosting a healthy mind that will be evidenced in your overall wellbeing, professionally and personally. Remember this and remember this steadfast, THERE IS NOTHING MORE IMPORTANT THAN FEELING GOOD. There cannot be a greater prayer than feeling good. I do not say this in a conscientious way, but as a direction towards a creating a healthy mind.

You must know this, our mind can only entertain one feeling at a time. It can host many thoughts, but only one primary feeling.
For example, you cannot feel love and feel hate at the same time. It’s either / or, but not both. You can have a thousand different thoughts of love zooming in your thoughts at the same time but the core feeling is one.

The trick therefore is to feel good. Because good feelings are a result of good thoughts, just as bad feelings are a result of bad thoughts.

Now here is where the magic comes in, if you trick your mind into feeling good for at least 68 seconds, you will start an atomic explosion of good thoughts. And soon your body will react to the vibration of your thoughts by releasing endorphins, which are happy hormones, and soon you will feel the spurge of energy, enthusiasm and power. These endorphins have a “high” effect as in artificial drugs, nicotine and alcohol, and the bonus is, unlike the drugs, they provide resistance towards anti bodies and toxins.

The laughter club is one such feel good community. I always recommend people to have deliberate feel good sessions whether at work or at home. It can be something as simple as writing out an appreciation note, maintaining a gratitude journal, watching funny movies, listening to a beautiful piece of music, reading a joke book, or just saying a prayer.

Let your achievement of today be – I felt good today. And watch the magic of well being flow through you.
Blessings, Priya

Hi Priya,

Sona aunty has rightly quoted "Going through your blog is a feel good factor"

I was cribbing this morning about not feeling too good, and feeling sickly. This is the right medicine at the right time!

I shall trick my mind into feeling good!! Thanks for enlisting ways to do the same.

So very often, we have the antidote to our problems just so close but we fail to see.

I know what I gotta do to get myself into a good mood!!!

Its so true that we our lives have become so mechanical and we keep looking for external factors to lighten us up and "FEEL GOOD" when it is within us and in our control.
Thanks for the amazing idea that all it takes is 68seconds.

Dear Ms. Priya,

Thank you for giving us lot many insights I must say by birth you are a perfect person. I have attended one of your motivational sessions in PTVA MTHR Global Event. You have said many stories about your life, which I can’t forget in whole of my life.

You have discussed about the needs and opportunities, I still remember that. Really, now, coming across the various situations, I am agreeing that the need creates a place for opportunity. The only thing, person should be capable enough to see that opportunity.

You have also involved people for training game. Bending still rod from the main point of the throat is very difficult. When you asked this question, I thought it is not possible, but after looked at the practicality u made me understand that, there is nothing difficult in this world, only thing we have to be open minded to think beyond our capabilities.

I would like to thank you for every sentence that inspires me a lot.

I can’t wish you best luck, because already you have created on your own and looking forward to get more insights from you.

Thanks and regards,
Sunil
