The writer says that if we start each day by focussing on ourselves, then we would be more connected to our feelings and in turn be happier.
How often have you given yourself a moment of silence to ask “Okay, how am I feeling?”, before that big meeting or before that product launch? – A lot!
Why? It is because that meeting, that product really matters to us. It’s going to help us succeed and achieve our big goals.
But, the bigger question to ask is , “Why do we forget to do this each and every day? “Isn’t each day important? Isn’t each day a step towards achieving that big goal? So why don’t we do it? — We are busy. Period. We just don’t have the time to pay attention to each and every small tiny event that happens in our life.
It’s true, however it is not a very good strategy if you want to succeed in your life.
Success is not a big gold apple to be consumed towards the end, it’s a process. It’s a lot of hard-work, failure, emotions, adventure, patience, love – success is all this combined.
To reach there we’ve got to start with ourselves. Keep ourselves mindful, peaceful, give our brain that capacity to deal with almost anything and achieve success almost every day.
So, how do we do that?
All you’ve got to do is ask yourself – 3 important questions, every day, as soon as you wake up, and then get on with your day.
Don’t belittle this ritual calling it simple meditation fluff and dismissing it. Researchers say, that when we literally name the feeling, we are a step closer towards understanding ourselves, our goals, our problems.
As Dr. Daniel Siegal rightly said, “Name it, to tame it”. When we feel a strong emotion or are overwhelmed, our brain starts pumping stress hormones to our body which brings us to a high-pressured situation, our muscles tense up and we start displaying the fight response. When we name what we feel our brain immediately calms down, sending soothing signals. This gives your brain time to catch up on immediate response and organize your reaction.
Whether you are a morning person or a night person, it doesn’t matter, as soon as you start your day ask yourself these 3 questions and be in-line with your emotions and your dreams.
This little ritual is most helpful if you’re someone who gets too emotional too easily, gets scared, suffer from a lot of anxiety or going through a phase of crisis.

Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 might have had a box office collection of 260 crores INR and entertained Indian audiences, but it's full of problematic stereotypes.
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 starts with a scene in which the protagonist, Ruhaan (played by Kartik Aaryan) finds an abandoned pink suitcase in a moving cable car and thinks there is a bomb inside it.
Just then, he sees an unknown person (Kiara Advani) wave and gesture at him to convey that the suitcase is theirs. Ruhaan, with the widest possible smile, says, “Bag main bomb nahi hai, bomb ka bag hai,” (There isn’t a bomb in the bag, the bag belongs to a bomb).
Who even writes such dialogues in 2022?
Be it a working or a homemaker mother, every parent needs a support system to be able to manage their children, housework, and mental health.
Let me at the outset clarify that when I mention ‘work’ here, it includes ANY work. So, it could be the work at home done by a homemaker parent or it could be work in a professional/entrepreneurial environment.
Either way, every parent struggles to find that fine balance between ‘work’ and ‘parenting’, especially with younger kids who still need high emotional and physical support from their caretakers. And not just any balance, but more importantly, balance that lets them keep their own sanity intact!
