It is Tuesday already!
I know it is Wednesday today. However, that was my thought when I sat down to do the weekly round-up yesterday. The past week just flew by. I was swamped with work and plans. Yeah, those fancy fernweh things are a blur, if you are curious.
I did a crazy amount of coordination with people spread over the globe. I made some mid-year resolutions to up my skills, to exercise and to teach my older child to read those three-letter words (this has been the biggest challenge, trust you me). Okay, I Instagrammed, too. There was no time or energy to put those resolutions to work, though.
But no matter what I did, my mind was kinda muddled with all the thoughts and to-do items. Perhaps, that brought on the fatigue sooner. Anyway, I also again watched Limitless, that Hollywood film starring Bradley Cooper. The break cleared my mindscape. And now I have the key to accomplishing more in every aspect of life. It’s simple — a clear mind. If you have clarity of mind, you can change your life.
Here are 10 ways to unleash the power of your mind. Read the following articles and up your game. Emerge new.10 actual stories to clear the mindscape + 1 potent tool + 1 call for a pitch #freelance. Subscribe to the newsletter, it's free. tell a friend

My Inner Immunity: Immunity is the buzzword ever since Covid struck. “Do I have the antibodies” is probably the most popular question after “Can you hear me now (think Zoom calls)”. But the disease is not the only thing that people succumb to. More often, hopelessness makes life a challenge. Trust an ashram resident to show the way. Sushree Nishtha shares a personal story that led her to discover the emotional antibodies. You’d need them even after the pandemic is over, so get working on developing those already.

Gift of a Dead Smartphone: When my new phone went kaput and then the laptop started acting up, I didn’t emerge out of this gadget-y soup as strong as Peeush.

Ample food for thought here.

Check yours from straying too far. I love Shalini’s eclectic writing.
