25 ways to improve your life!

Arty of Living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is currently in Mumbai. On this occasion, I give below a short write up on “25 ways to improve your life”, taken from his teachings.

  1. Review the context of your life. Know that span of life is insignificant. In terms of space, you don’t even exist! 
  1. Know life’s impermanence. Past is like a dream. It has already passed
  1. Make your smile cheaper. Smile more! Somebody said something stupid to you. Because they had some garbage to throw. Don’t catch it! 
  1. Be enthusiastic and praise others
  1. Make meditation a part of your life. Meditation is the art of doing nothing. Let go the anger of the past and planning for the future
  1. Go to the most beautiful place on earth – within you! Take one week off every year. 
  1. Communicate effectively 
  1. Take some time out for yourself – daily 10 minutes at least
  1. Make a commitment to make this world a better place 
  1. Nourish your emotions – through music, prayer and service. 
  1. Plan short and long term goals 
  1. Prayer is a vital tool. What you can do, you do. What you cannot do, you pray for! 
  1. Implement changes if needed. Don’t be afraid of change 
  1. Identify your limitations 
  1. Do not loose your friends 
  1. Don’t look for perfection 
  1. Let us be unpredictable 
  1. Have a sense of humour. Don’t take life too seriously
  1. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes 
  1. Overcome your prejudice 
  1. Feel that “I’m blessed” 
  1. Do random acts of kindness 
  1. Be a student, always 
  1. Dream the impossible 
  1. Compare your performance with past
