Mindful Doodles #52:
Two colleagues sit together at lunch, in a display of friendship. They talk about how the year is ending and how they have taken their leave, before the year ends. The guy on the right said he had to go overseas to visit his parents. They talk some more on minor work related issues. They appear to be enjoying their lunch together. Imagine how less enjoyable it would be, for a lone luncher at the cafeteria.
Mindful Doodles is a series of comic/ cartoon drawn on assimilating stimuli that comes into my mind. My surrounding and environment are dynamic. As events happen, the stimuli enters my brain and I pay attention to them. I am not mentally disturbed as I pay due respect to each stimulus. I ponder upon how I would deal with the stimulus, to manage the situation. I try to discover what lesson the Universe bestows on me in this encounter. I write my discovery as my Mindful Thought of the Day.
Why be mindful? By paying time and attention to a disturbing stimulus, you deal with it. It ceases to be new and disruptive to you. You have released anxiety. You have greatly reduced your mental stress.
Mindful Thought of the Day:
Eat with a friend! Camaraderie enlightens your stress and psychological burden.
