How to Stop Being Angry at the World

When asked about advice on how to stop being angry at the world, I took a while to reflect on the reasons why people may be angry and what can be done to revert that feeling. If for one it’s easy to understand that the world is too often a cruel place with bad intentions, it’s also important to focus on our own humanity to find a balance point with which to improve ourselves, our way of life on our daily life and what we can do to make the best with what we got.

There are several techniques and perspectives that will help most people achieve a better understanding of themselves and their place in the world and, in return, approach their preconceived ideas about the world with a refreshed, more positive point of view.

Though the advice listed here is not scientific, it will mot definitely help you identify one or more root causes for your anger towards the world.

Understanding Your Stress Levels

The world has become such a hectic place these days, with everybody in such a hurry to be somewhere or be something, not worrying about how they are actually feeling due to how busy their life has become. However, once they do finally get that little bit of free time, to just sit down and relax and think about things a bit more clearly, they begin to find that they are not as happy in their life as they thought they were to begin with. This can then lead to depression, anxiety and stress, but these terms are so broad that we can sometimes forget that there are actually many different levels of stress, not just one to cover everything.

So if you are feeling a bit down and depressed, and you feel that your stress is what is causing you to feel this way, then it is important to understand the different levels of stress and to put your finger on what kind of stress levels you are feeling. This will then help you to find the cause of the stress and in understanding your stress levels, you can then work on combating it and making yourself feel much better. So, on to the main reason that I am here. I am not going to tell you that you shouldn’t feel stressed, as stress is a natural part of life. Instead, I am here to help you in understanding your stress levels, in order to help you to cope with the stress you are feeling.

How to Manifest Your Dreams

Since we were young, we all had our dreams. As a child, we don’t take notice of “is it possible?” or “can I do it?”, we just dream.

We don’t put any barriers on our imagination until we hit an obstacle or someone older tells us “can’t” or “shouldn’t” or other stupid restrictions.

Why can’t we?

Why shouldn’t we?

The truth is that we are so powerful.

We just let society, our parents, surroundings, school system, tell us what we can’t do. And sometimes, we are stupid enough to listen.

But actually, that isn’t true!

Why is it Important to Have a Personal Development Plan?

I know, it’s a pain in the neck sitting down and creating a plan for your personal development (or near enough anything else for that matter). It’s much easier to just “wing it” and hope everything will fall nicely into place.

But, deep down, you know that’s highly unlikely to happen.

Things get in the way and the excitement of the plan can disappear as well.

Is There Such a Thing as Good Luck?

Whether or not there’s such a thing as good luck (or, I guess, bad luck) is one of those questions where there’s no definitive answer.

Scientists can’t run trials about luck because they can’t control how humans behave – they can’t give us a “good luck” pill without smirking as, to be honest, most scientists think that luck is more to do with our vivid human imaginations than anything real.

But there’s a problem with that way of thinking…

How to Get Over the Fear of Growing Up

Growing up is something we all have to do. We can’t stay children forever (apart from anything else, that would just look weird and at best have us put on a register). But most of us do our best to put off the idea of growing up for as long as possible. Some of us (certain rock stars spring to mind) kind-of manage.

But most of us have to try this “adulting” thing at some stage.

What Does Dreaming About Squid Mean?

Our dreams are weird.

We all dream every night we sleep – usually several times – but we rarely remember any of our dreams.

Some dreams are vivid (often nightmares fall into that category) and it’s as though we’re physically part of the dream, much like some of the dream sequences in films.

Other dreams are just part of what we do at night and we pay them near enough no attention.

But sometimes certain things keep cropping up in our dreams and we begin to have vague memories about those dreams when we’re awake.

Who was St Benedict? What were His Miracles? What are His Patronages?

St Benedict – often referred to as Benedict of Nursia – was alive around 1,500 years ago: he was born on the second of March 480 AD and is generally thought to have died on 21st March 547 AD.

He founded a community of monks – what we’d now call a monastery – and created a set of rules for them to follow. It’s been used by Benedictine monks ever since, allowing them to govern their communities without infringing on their autonomy. The fact that it’s stood for so long means there must be quite a few things in its favour and these can be applied to our own personal development, regardless of whether we’re religious or not or (if we are) which religion we follow.
