Nourishing your soul feels satiating like a healthy meal.

Simple steps by which you can start improving your life one day at a time

  1. Full fill your duty every day. Your Dharma. Whatever is expected of you on a daily basis, complete it with attention and care. Once that is taken care of, what you have is peace of mind.
  2. To be able to perform your duty with as much attention and then find time for doing what you enjoy, you need energy and enthusiasm. You get it by doing the things mentioned above.
  3. Learn continuously. Find time for exploring your work and life. Learning makes you aware and awareness is the first step of any change.
  4. Every question has an answer, seek actively. Do not settle for a lump sum answer.
  5. Become disciplined. Its hard but give it a shot everyday.
  6. Now not all curiosity should be about all the serious things in life. It should also be about all the fun things in life. Don’t rush behind everything but yes! go find your new favorite music, game, movie, book, place, food and what not.
  7. It sounds corny coming from me, I feel like young people cannot say it or are hesitant about it but I think yes, one good deed a day for someone for nothing, feels superb. Try it. Even the right words at the right time could be a good deed for someone.
  8. Learn to appreciate Nature.
  9. 30 minutes a day. Commit to 30 minutes day for whatever that which you want to achieve.
  10. Develop your vision about your life. You are at Point A, what does being at point P or Z feels like?
