5 Cardinal Rules for a Better Life!

Sunshine and shower- The undeniable truth about a pantomime called life. Our lives are bristled with barrage of challenges, showers of happiness and gale of surprises. Encumbered with the lows of angst and elated with the highs of joy; a never ending cycle of life keeps us in constant motion, sometimes to the destination we were longing for and most of the times like a rocking chair which shakes us but gets us to nowhere.

So how do one purges the dregs and drivels to relish the quintessential life? How does one makes the best of the time on one’s hand? Well here is a start you are looking for. Keep these 5 cardinal rules in mind to bring the elements of your life in sync-

Rise, Shine, Flex and Feed
Don’t try or falter but open up those sleepy eyes of yours in the morning at any cost to squeeze out maximum out of the day. Just reset your body clock for an early start by retiring to bed at appropriate time. All it takes is a little determination and a ravenous desire to do something meaningful the next day. Once you are up, incorporate exercise in your early morning regime to invigorate your senses and start your day on a high note. Next in line is to have a hearty and healthy breakfast to fuel your body and revitalize those muscles before you pull-up your socks for the day ahead.

Push and pull
Once you are up and running, it is time to pull closer the tasks which are attention seekers and need your laser-sharp focus. While you are at that, ensure that you push the minor ones till the end of the evening when you are mentally and physically drained to take up a strenuous task. De-cluttering things in this manner will help you think straight especially when you really need to put the pedal to the floor.

Transient advantage
If you have conquered one of the many milestones that you have in mind, it is time to continue walking, wading, tripping and springing right back up. What you might perceive as an advantage for yourself might turn into nothing but a rudimentary facet as time goes on So be hungry, strive for the best and persevere under testing times. Keep edifying, evolving, and elevating your senses with every passing moment!

Social bonds, offline that is!
Out-muscling and outstripping your competitors during working hours is welcomed and even encouraged. But at the end of the day, no one is going to remember your power-point presentations or immaculate sale pitches. The relations you hold close to your heart are the ones that will count. No, not those 4 digit figure friend-list on Facebook or the twitter junkies following you! Who you woo and coo in real life will make all the difference. Relish the convivial delights with your family and savor your time with your friends. Make your personal life, personal and devote it to yourself and people around you. That is an undeniable key to a better life.

Gratitude peddler
Be a gratitude peddler! Be thankful to the things you have in life. Be grateful when people do something for you and never hesitate to give back to the world whenever you have the opportunity to do so. Smile and make someone smile. Be a ray of sunshine during rainy days of others. The pleasure of loving yourself and loving others is a pristine emotion that will shape your life in the best possible way.
