In the stressful times that we live in today the only aspect that we can manage is ourselves. This three step approach is the only method to face the Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous (VUCA ) world that we live in !

Enjoying life is often thought to be a mindset, the result of reflection, action and gratitude. And while most of us lack sufficient free time, to escape to some mountaintop temple to follow our bliss, the best way to find happiness is to make practical, everyday changes. Coupled with conscious choices to appreciate the people in your life and making space to do the things you’re best at, small changes to your life, soon add up to greater enjoyment in life.

So how do we enjoy life and be peaceful?

We need to control ourselves and look for alternate solutions. Here are some recommendations, which could help in managing ourselves better and enjoy life

Remove the stress or manage it better

Is it possible to change the cause of stress? Maybe no. In most cases stress links back to many external factors. All that one can do is to find ways to manage it better. This includes becoming more assertive about your needs and boundaries and working smarter, not harder.

Learn new things

Instead of running away from new experiences, engage in them and seek more, whenever you can. Learn new skills or look for something new. After all, you only live once.

Find a hobby

Hard routines are counterproductive to spontaneity and surprise––leave a little flexibility in your schedule, so that it doesn’t become routine and humdrum. Spare sometime for what you enjoy!


Exercising, affects the release of endorphins, which transmit messages to the brain, translating into positive feelings. Regular exercise not only combats depression, anxiety, and feelings of loneliness but also bolsters your immune system

Practice meditation

Meditation reduces stress and promotes a calm feeling. It is important to maintain a good body posture for the energy to come to balance, allowing calmness and being as one with all that is.
