Over the years, I’ve had many people (teachers, classmates, clients, etc) ask me how I remain so chill all the time. Many times I end up laughing on the inside because it’s about 90% true. Even if I do find myself getting upset about something, I always end up laughing out loud because of a joke I end up making about a situation. I truly believe that weak minded/egocentric people will have a hard time in the World. You have to get your mind right from an early age. This will allow you to focus through anything, especially when it comes to Mother Nature.
You know there are kids All Over the World who have learned how to play board games and/or video games during a thunderstorm, hurricane, tornado, earthquake, etc.
Safety first of course. ;)
Here are some ways that I have learned to focus over the years…
Chores – I grew up with chores, finishing homework before I could go out and play, and extracurricular activities. This teaches kids how to be responsible, organized, and balance work with play.
Entrepreneurship – I also grew up with lemonade stands, yard sales, etc. This teaches kids how to be self-sufficient. I’m a strong believer in having your foundations (health, career, finances) solid first and foremost in life.
Minimalism – Minimalism isn’t always about living with less. It’s about just living with what you need and love. Being a location independent entrepreneur/digital nomad allows me to travel light and stay where I desire in the World (hotels, rentals, cities, nature, etc).
A clutter free environment allows you mental freedom.
Short Hair & Nails - This is based on palmistry and experience. Short nails are associated with hard work. It’s also practical to have short nails if you use a keyboard, text, and/or take care of tasks like cooking, cleaning, etc.
Short hair above the shoulders allows you mental freedom to focus on more practical concerns. There’s no real need to deal with distracting hair ties or headbands.
These can give some people a headache.
Lack of Accessories - If you’re exercising, working, etc, jewelry can get in the way. Small earring studs on the ears, face, and/or on a necklace are simple ways to wear jewelry.
Lightweight plastic eye glasses can also keep things simple.
Sensitive types may feel their ear piercings, face piercings, and other accessories too much though. This is when they can become an uncomfortable distraction. Less is more.
Martial Arts/Meditation – Meditation will always be my number one on how to be more focused in life. I started early on by reading about Zazen, participating in group meditations, providing Hypnotherapy to clients and partners, and taking martial arts classes (Kung Fu, Tai Chi, etc).
