Hit the Pause button on your life

Life seems complicated many a times to many of us. Most of the times, it is because we are confused about what we want and what we are doing. We feel as if we are carrying a burden on our shoulders and living a hard life.

A simple cure which works most of the times is hitting the pause button on our life. If, often, we hit the pause button on our life and inspect what is going on in our life, Life becomes simpler, happier. Another advantage of hitting the pause button and looking at our life as if we are an outsider, gives us new perspectives of our current life. Also gives us back our good old dreams. Gives us new ideas as well sometimes.

I am not suggesting you drop everything in your life and go backpacking(if that is what you want to do, and you have everything arranged to do that, well, go ahead with it. That would be the best few days or months in your life). But, yes, a few minutes everyday without watching TV or browsing internet or chatting with someone or SMSing or shouting at children. I suggest you make this time with yourself, where there are no distractions and you are with yourself and only with yourself. If not possible everyday, do it atleast once in a week. 

You will be amazed at the renewed energy you will find in your life and also the contentment that you are moving towards what you want.

Do you do it often? I would like to know your thoughts.
