We let the facts do the talking.

Playing the mind

Part 1

Has your life become tiring and boring? Is your work loaded? Do you feel that your day is a routine that repeats itself? Do you dread any cheerful change?

In a busy world that we are living today, it is not an uncommon scenario. Workplace pressures, complex family lives, and technologically-loaded and fast-moving hours,   all these factors have made us a physically, emotionally, and mentally exhausted community of people who are not living the lives they desired or deserved. We are all stuck between the questions of ‘who am I’ and ‘what is happening.’

Being rejected, ambitionless, and spending days without any passion or love for things – most of us blame it on life. But the truth is that, if you are leading such a life, it is your fault. It is interesting how your brain can make you feel differently, to an extent that you start believing things even if they are not true.

It is human to reject drastic changes as the comfort zone that one lives and operates in keeps us from changing our habits and routines. It’s natural that we feel safe about things that we are familiar with, and as you gradually start changing your habits, it does feel different. This is why most of us stick to our old ways of living without even trying to change them or replace them with new ones. This way, we are always trapped in a shell called ‘easy’.

In the second part of this blog, I’ll be sharing facts on how you can manipulate your brain rather than allow it to take reign over you.
