5 Most Important Things In Life Which You Should Always Thank, Enjoy And Appreciate
Last evening, after doing my mediation, I asked myself this simple question?
Other than food, clothing, water, air and shelter, what are the most important things in life which you should always thank, enjoy and appreciate.
Don’t be surprised when you read the following points, because these are day to day things which we may take it lightly. However, without these 5 most important things life might feel like hell.
Yes, I mean it. Can you re-live the relief which you have got when you released the unwanted gas from your body:). Jokes apart..!
People may laugh at it or they may even make fun of you when you do it in public, but no one can deny that its one of nature’s biggest blessings, according to me.
At this point of time, a real life story is passing through my mind and I am going to tell you that, right now.
A few years back, myself and my friends were waiting in a bus stop. At this point of time a friend of mine farted a couple of times.. Seeing this, an old lady who was standing next to us got a little angry, and asked my friend what is he doing.
To this my friend said – “Aunty, this is a trumpet which is given by God and sometimes it is blown even without our control .”
Surprisingly, the old lady burst out in laughter, joined by all of us in that bus stop.
I don’t mean to say that you should do this public. But my point is – ” This is a natural phenomenon, which you should enjoy, thank and appreciate, without intruding the privacy of others.” You should also accept the fact that sometimes things go beyond your control and there is no reason to be ashamed of it.
2. Ability To Forget Things
Can you recollect the exact number of times you would have fought with someone in your life?
I would say, its nearly impossible. You can very well try to bring it back to your memory. However, most of the times you will end up on the losing side.
Just imagine – How much hatred would have existed in this world if we had the ability to remember all the bad things that were done to us by people.
World is a much more beautiful place because of this natural ability of mankind to forget certain things in their life.
So next time, when you forget something please tell yourself that it is a blessing by nature. But when you start forgetting everything then it is time to consult a doctor ..!
H’mm, the so called saints ask you to be more courageous and not cry.
But, I am personally against it. I would say, please cry when you are feeling sad and when you feel like crying.
Let’s take a look the benefits you get when you cry?
- ‘Crying can help release tension and stress, as well as expressing emotions,’ says Dr Abigael San, chartered clinical psychologist.
- Crying washes away the unwanted chemical from our body, which are formed as a result of your stress.
- Crying also protects our eyes from dusts and cleanses our eyes.
So next time when you are stressed and feel like crying, just burst out. And please let us know your feelings when you come across such a situation.
You and I would have gone dead if there was no laughter in this planet. Don’t you agree with me?
Read these funny short stories to have a good laugh, if your facial muscles are a little stressed because of your hectic work.
You’ll be truly surprised when you are going to hear the amazing benefits of laughter, which I am going to show you now.
- Have you heard of stress hormones called adrenaline and cortisol. If not, then please understand that laughter reduces these hormones in your body, which will help you to be in a relaxed state.
- Laughter has got the amazing power to nourish your memory and also it brings out the creative genius in you.
- This is the most simple and easy workout that you can give for your facial muscles.
- In a study conducted at the John Hopkins University they found out that laughter enhances learning and memory.
- Laughter can multiply the disease killing cells like T- Cells and Gamma – Interferon.
Just laugh out loud ..!
5. Urination and Defecation
Once a King asked Thennali Raman “What are the 2 things that gives you utmost pleasure in your life?”
Thennali Raman told the king that he would give the answer in a day’s time, to which the king agreed.
The king was locked inside his room and he was roaring at his people to open the door. Seeing this, all the people in the kingdom got really afraid, and they called for Thennali Raman, who locked the room. Once Thennali Raman opened the door, the king run faster than Hussain Bolt , to the toilet. On the way to the toilet, he told Thennali Raman that he will be hanged immediately after king’s return from the toilet.
After coming out from the toilet, the king said ” This is the biggest pleasure I have had in my life.” And the clever Thennali said, “King, this is the answer to the question which you had asked me last evening.”
Do I need to say more ?
The problem with us is that we don’t enjoy the simple blessings of life, but we are more focused on running towards the so called materialistic world. We need that as well. However, its highly important to lead a well balanced and happy life by controlling your needs and enjoying your existing blessings.
