To all the teenagers out there, here’s a magnificent buffet spread for you. This will not only nourish your mind, body and soul, but if you’re hungry enough, and remain consistent with its taste and flavor, can actually nourish the rest of your life. So, what are you waiting for? Devour all of it!
Let’s begin with the Starters.
(Pick any 2)
1. Get up early (You can accomplish 20% more during 5 a.m. to 8 a.m.)
2. Exercise at least for 30 minutes daily (You have no choice on this)
3. Meditate /pray/ manifest positive things or do yoga for 30 minutes every day.
Sure your stomach has the room for more hunger? Let’s now have the Main course.
(Pick any 4)
1) Invest in best clothes you can afford, along with good shoes. (It has been proved, that better dressed people appeal 15 % more-all things being equal.)
2) Outsource everything, which is not your core competence.
3) Reduce your mobile time by 30 %. (Mobile phones are the biggest time waster.)
4) At least take one bold decision, which you were always scared to take. (No one wants to die with regrets- do you?)
5) Train your brain to think creatively every day. Try to do different things to exercise your brain muscles- play some sport, go to new restaurants, visit zoo, listen to different music, watch kids playing, spend time with senior citizens, etc.
And now as they famously say, “A balanced diet is having a dessert in each hand.” choose your Desserts.
1. Take at least two vacations in a year.
2. Devote at least one day a week for family and friends.
3. Learn a new hobby.
4. Smile at all possible times.
5. Watch one movie in a cinema hall/ play in auditorium every month. (It is a therapy for the soul.)
6. Read at least 12 books in a year. (One every month)
7. Start picking and completing things still undone. Discard unwanted & unused stuff from your house and your mind.
8. Get in touch with one old friend whom you have not spoken for years.
9. Laugh often.
Well, after this hearty meal, ‘You’ will definitely thank yourself. But before that the same, old question still persists- “Are you hungry enough?”
