Tuesday’s Thoughts: Emotional Suppression (I’d like to know what you guys think!)

I was watching an Elliot Hulse video earlier and I found his input very interesting. His views are contrary to everything that I have ever been told, in fact, it is most likely contrary to everything that many people know. Here is the video… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jx1DFgMIS_s It is interesting, in a good way, to see an … Continue reading Tuesday’s Thoughts: Emotional Suppression (I’d like to know what you guys think!)

Reflection of the day: Nourish your body, nourish your mind

Personal Development Pursuit

So, I have only realized the importance of diet recently. Unfortunately, we live in a time where many people are so body conscious (or even unconscious) that they either eat monotonous diets or eat very unhealthily. Both are equally as bad and the ramifications for both physical and mental health are not to be welcomed.

It is surprising at how little fruit and vegetables are incorporated in many peoples’ diets. We must remember that our body is our temple. I always use the car analogy. If we fill our car up with cheap quality fuel, it will not run as efficiently as it possibly can. Additionally, if we do not use enough fuel, the car will eventually stop running. Now apply this analogy to the body. If you eat unhealthy food, then you will not operate optimally and efficiently. The same will happen if you do not eat enough.

One of the most fundamental things that underpins his idea that a mentor is crucial (see his TedX Talk on YouTube) is the idea that we should look for pre-made solutions to issues.

9. Confidence and past achievements

Personal Development Pursuit

As previously said, one of the main sources of confidence is preparation. However, another source is knowing about your past achievements.

Activity 1 (three things per day activity) required you to look at the strengths of your character. This activity is similar, but it requires you to look at your past achievements. I say that they’re similar as they both require internal reflection, which can be challenging.

When I usually mention this to somebody, they say that they have hardly any achievements. That is clearly incorrect. Unless you are under the age of about 10, you will have achieved something. The issue is that people only look at their academic merit or career success. Of course, achievements in those areas are fabulous! However, people forget about other achievements of theirs, such as being great at badminton, volunteering for a charity or persevering through illness! Yes, these are achievements.

So, what…
