TWO PRACTICAL WAYS TO MAINTAIN YOUR MENTAL POISE AND PEACE.
These suggestions are from me, a creative writer and not from a professional therapist. But since these methods are working for me to a significant extent, I thought I would share the same with my readers. However, I strongly feel that any seeker (of mental poise, of course) should also see for herself what best works for her or him.
1) ANCHOR YOUR MIND
Easily the most rewarding but also difficult thing to achieve! But there are two practical tools which may help you with this.
A PERSONAL MANTRA FOR FREQUENT, SILENT CHANTING- SHORT AND SWEET.
AN AUTO-SUGGESTION PHRASE- AGAIN FOR SILENT REPETITION.
You may hand pick any mantra from among your favorites, so long you find it comforting. As for the auto suggestion phrase, it has to be relevant to your requirement, like, “I am confident” or “I am calm and contented.”
I would say boldly that this is one of the most important requirements for anyone and everyone-to consciously and with great awareness, juggle and maintain delicate balance in all relationships-son, father, brother, husband and other equally in work-related ones. You should not be perceived to tilt unduly in any direction, except in an objective manner. Though there are still bound to be misunderstandings and problems- in the long run, it helps, when people who matter to you know you as a fair and unprejudiced person.
IN TIME MANAGEMENT:
Needless to say,any balancing in relationship will work only when we
allocate useful time for it. So, you also need to juggle between careers and hobbies on one side, and family time on the other.
