Prescription for a happier life

Posted by Rob Nootropic on

Here's a list of simple things one can do to make life better:
  • Honor your feelings. 
  • Clean your living environment. Make your bed daily and wash the dishes. You might be surprised at how much a clean environment can improve one's mental health.
  • Attention is currency, so be careful what you give your attention to. (If you don't think attention is currency, just look at that college kid who became one of the richest people in the world by starting a social media platform. Attention is definitely currency.)  
  • Learn to be alone. Make time every day to be with yourself, so you can learn who you are. Be there for you and improve your relationship with yourself. Find the silence within.
  • Do what makes you excited. Follow your passion. 
  • Speak your truth. What one represses within oneself often comes back to haunt us.
  • Supplement your brain with what it needs. Your mind is your most powerful ally, or your own worst enemy. 
  • Where necessary, slow down your use of intoxicants or stimulants. I'm not saying be a monk, I am saying that every nootropic has it's own optimal frequency with with it should be taken.
  • Get in touch with friends and family you may have been neglecting. Say thank you to them. 
  • Get some exercise. Even an hour's walk in the morning can set one up for a better day. 
  • Take breaks. Take breaks from work, take breaks from people, take breaks from all sorts of things. Sometimes one just needs to recharge. 
  • Question everything.  
  • A voter may deliberately spoil a vote, for example as a protest vote, especially in compulsory voting jurisdictions, to show disapproval of the candidates and the standing governmental structure, whilst still taking part in the electoral process. If one does not approve of the system in place, one can spoil a vote by writing on the ballot "I do not consent to government." Remember though, that by voting for one particular party, one is tacitly agreeing to a system, and therefore voting for a system, rather than a party.
  • You have the right to rescind any past agreement which disempowers you. Remember that.
  • Try not to gossip. By doing so you give your power away and leave yourself vulnerable. And you hurt others. Some things can not be undone. Think before you talk. 
  • The world owes you nothing. Take responsibility for your own situation and don't blame the outside for the condition you find yourself in. Your life is a result of the decisions you made, the actions you took and the actions you decided not to take. 
  • Words cast spells, that's why it's called "spelling." Be impeccable with your word. Choose wisely the things you say about yourself, situations and about others. 
  • Switch the TV off, it's poisoning your mind. You are a co-creator of realities, stop creating theirs by feeding them your precious attention. In fact, throw the thing away. It's called a TV "program" for a reason. No, you don't need to "keep in the loop," you need to be present with what is immediately in front of you. 
  • Stop looking for validation from the outside.
  • Start expressing your own unique authenticity. Be real. 
  • Learn to truly listen to people. Everyone has something to teach us. Everyone is an expression of divine Life.  
  • Start reading books that can help you in your life. 
  • Think things through.
  • Get some sun on your skin.
  • Contribute to the world around you. Doing good deeds is a superpower. 
  • There is no healing in being a victim. 
  • Realize that discipline is self-love, not drudgery. 
  • Spend more time in nature.
  • Eat healthily. 
  • Stop identifying with your label. You are not your behavior or your bad habits. If your behavior sucks, try be nicer to people. Be kind.
  • Practice gratitude.
  • Become aware of your inner dialogue, and modify your self-talk by reaching for the best-feeling thought you have access to. (From the book Ask and it is Given, by Esther and Jerry Hicks, page 92). 
  • Don't waste your time. All we really know is that we are here, now. Life is a precious gift, don't waste your chance. Whatever you do, make it count. 
  • You never know when it will be the last time you ever see somebody. Keep this in mind when interacting with others.  
  • Choose to be here, now.
  • Stop listening to "authority". The only authority over your own life is you, yourself and the Creator. 
  • There is no such thing as "only one" solution. Whenever someone is trying to sell you their solution as the only possible solution, know that you're being manipulated. This is how cults, governments and narcissists work.  
  • Don't buy into fear. There is only Love and Fear. Fear is often disguised, such as by being "safe." Being safe implies there is danger. By saying "stay safe", you're unwittingly creating a dangerous environment, and so you become a puppet to the Merchant of Chaos, unconsciously disseminating their agenda. Remember, words cast spells. 
  • Realize that you are a perceiver- co creator. Don't let your perceptions be skewed by others, don't let your creative abilities be used to create the desired realities of another.
  • Think things through. Don't get stuck in the story, don't get involved in the narrative, simply look at the end result. Play a scenario out to its extreme. Extrapolate to see where the current trajectory is headed. Use that as a guideline with which to act, and with which to make your decisions. If you're making decisions out of fear, you're doing it wrong. 
  • Allow yourself to feel again. Yes, that can be hard, but if you want to heal, it is necessary that you stop relying on being a "rational" human, and open up your heart. Start listening to your intuition. This is where your true power lies.  
  • Respect your own boundaries and those of others. 
  • Reality is perception. Reality is what is agreed upon. Reality is therefore malleable.  What you put your attention on, becomes. Attention and intention are currency. Use them wisely. 
  • Reframe your past experiences. Get the lesson from your trauma, there's no need to continue making oneself wrong for past failures.  
  • Instead of co-dependent relationships, choose co-creative relationships.
  • Find your inner artist. 
  • Be kind, be humble, be grateful. 
  • Have fun!
