creating joy for self

Enjoyment appears at the boundary between boredom and anxiety, when the challenges are just balanced with the person’s capacity to act.”

Joy mantras that are most natural to our beings

•  Too much television is ‘Tele-visham’ — (Tele poison). Too much negative stimulation, disturbs a mind space naturally ready for imagination, and fantasy. Even people and events distracts you from focusing on your own mindspace, your home, and your backyard.

• Regular exercise schedule. Physical fitness is the most important thing in life.

•  Service to others, music, prayer — forms of meditation — make the blood flow with serotonins — the happiness chemical.

•  Listen to your body. If you are tired, rest. If you are hungry, eat. If you are lonely, communicate, ask for a hug. If you are angry, deal with your anger constructively.

To create a joy ful flow experience: is to be internally motivated, i.e. doing the activity mainly for its own sake, a task would stretch your skills almost to the limits, but that not makes you too anxious, with a clear short-term objective,and in which you get get immediate feedback on how is it turning out.

an hour can pass in the blink of an eye, you feel what you are doing is important,you’re not self-conscious, action and awareness merges,you feel in full control, and the experience is intrinsically rewarding. being in a state of flow is a beautiful thing.
