People who have no idea are turning on it.

Mindfulness has spread across the world. It’s made its way into mainstream society. Everyone from the housemaids to the Silicon Valley CEOs is into it.

But there’s one thing that makes me utterly sad about our predicament.

While mindfulness has spread like wildfire, there’s one essential ingredient that is lacking — Love.

Let me explain.

I recently came across tons of articles talking about the ‘Dark Side of Mindfulness’. As I went on reading, there were two key points I noticed:

First, the people talking about the ‘Dark Side’ were themselves not regular practitioners. …

The world desperately needs to move towards it.

“It’s almost as if science said, “Give me one free miracle, and from there the entire thing will proceed with a seamless, causal explanation.”’ The one free miracle was the sudden appearance of all the matter and energy in the universe, with all the laws that govern it.”

Rupert Sheldrake

According to what we call science today, the Universe appeared out of nowhere. Everything fell perfectly into its place — the matter, the energies, and all the laws that govern them.

While only a few of us take time to question this hypothesis, it’s worth contemplating. …

4 hours/week is all you need.

When it comes to training in the gym, I’m a minimalist. Who has the time to spare an hour every day?

I know you too have a lot on your plate. We all have things to do. We have families to take care of, businesses to run, jobs to go to, and an endless list of skills to learn.

But there’s also a deep-rooted desire in all of us to look good. But even though you want it, you think you cannot have it.

“Where’s the time to think about building muscle?” you think.

But I’m here to tell you…

The no-BS method I use to write more every day

No matter how many get-rich-quick blogs you read on making money on Medium, there’s only one thing that can guarantee success.

Oh wait, nothing guarantees success here. But the only thing that can increase your chances of success is this:

Write as often as you can and as good as you can

Content creators around the globe love to debate about what’s more important — quality or quantity? I say both.

And as a writer, my job is to balance them.

Here’s something to consider: quality increases with quantity up to a certain limit, when it starts to decrease.

So…

You look good on the outside, but have you checked in within?

Going to the gym and working out can be one of the best things people can do in their lives. Yet, there are a lot of things wrong with this setup that almost no one talks about.

Working out, especially in a gym, can become an array of comparisons and insecurities. In fact, I’d say most people set foot in a gym not because they want to be better versions of themselves but they’re too insecure to be who they are.

Consequently, this ostensibly healthy habit turns into a mental health disaster. This is why gyms often turn into dwellings…

And how to recognize true intuition

“Intuition will tell the thinking mind where to look next.”

— Jonas Salk

Have you ever had a bad feeling just after meeting someone? Perhaps you knew how a situation was going to turn out beforehand. This happens to everyone, including you and me. These ‘hunches’ are quite common.

Think about the last time you said to someone — “I knew that was going to happen. I don’t know how, but just knew!” That’s your intuition at play, whether you remember it or not.

Search for intuition on the web and you’ll see every article quoting Steve Jobs. So at…


The ambitious achievers have never been so desperate for mindfulness

The pandemic changed how the whole world works. A work from home lifestyle has become the norm and the business and HR world now consider well-being and mindfulness to be their primary focus.

One of the major challenges to ensure well-being in a virtual environment is to judge the happiness levels of people. When they’re in the office, you can pick up on subtle cues that tell you a lot about how a person feels. You could talk to coworkers to solve your problems.

In the virtual world, it’s certainly difficult, if not impossible. I’ve seen these challenges first-hand in…
