6 Tips for Remaining Childlike Forever

4282486008_2bc67ffe8d_o

    There is an insurmountable beauty in children. They are innocent, untamed, and just the way they are. They have no facade, no pretense, or no shame. They have no apologies, regrets, or evil. They simply do what their hearts say or tell them to do. And as innocent as they are, they do just exactly that.

    All children have is this witty, jovial, and free nature that many of us lack. What if we adults were more like this? Just experiencing life simply on its terms, just letting it be.I feel more adults should act child-like as it keeps their innocent intact, providing them with true happiness, as well as simplicity. It has so many benefits that can provide you with a life long of happiness, tranquility, and composure. So how can you remain childlike forever? Just follow this advice:

    1. Always Act Like a Child

    Celebrate like a kid would. When you are happy, your whole face shows it. Smile whenever you get the chance or opportunity. Life is too short for worries, troubles, and fights. Be the person you were meant to be. Always enjoy the little moments in life. Whenever you will, you will feel like a child at any given opportunity. Children wake up each morning looking forward to the day and see opportunity in everything. For example, when you get off from work because of inclement weather celebrate like there is no tomorrow. Days like this don’t always come so seize the opportunity.

    2. Don’t Let People Tell You “Be More Mature!”

    If others tell you “grow up” or mature, don’t heed acting like your child-like self. You are you not them. Don’t try to be like them either. Be only yourself. Nobody should tell you to start acting more mature because you are who you are for a reason. You are not someone else and can act the way you want, whenever you want. As always, do what your heart tells you. The heart forever remains child-like whether we choose to grow up or not.

    3. Hold On To Innocence

    Always hold on to your innocence, no matter how selfish people may act around you. Innocence can have no price tag placed on it. It is something that is cherished and should be cherished more often. It keeps our bodies, hearts, and minds pure from all of the negativity the world throws at us. It gives us reason to be ourselves, without nagging, criticism, or skepticism.It is something that is so beautiful and pure that cannot be described in mere words. It truly is something that is essential in becoming child-like as all kids are innocent and pure. Cynicism is only something we acquire through life experience.

    4. Laugh often

    Laugh at every opportunity you can get. Life is too short for chances. So, make the most of them and use laughter as the best medicine to act like a child for the rest of your life. Seize every chance you get to laugh till your stomach hurts forever and ever. You will be thankful for laughter is the best medicine. (It also lengthens your life)!

    5. Simplicity is key

    Don’t get caught up in lies, false statements, and clever tricks. Be the person, simple, innocent, child you truly are. Don’t try outwitting people or beating them at various things. Just act in simplicity and you will live a life of laughter. Eventually, these people will get their due but it won’t be because you wasted your time worrying about them.

    6. Stop over-thinking

    When we over-think we needlessly stress out our minds and bodies. Don’t drain your mind of the energy when you will need later on for more important things. Over-thinking only leads to negativity and doubts. It does no one good. Just trust your instincts and never over-think. It just hurts you and the people around you. Kids never over-think. At times, they don’t even think when they should be thinking.

    How to Practice Positive Meditation in 2 Simple Steps

    How to Practice Positive Meditation in 2 Simple Steps

    Just by simply spending some effort and time, staying positive every day can be easily achieved. All that is required is a fraction of your time, 10-15 minutes a day to cultivate the positive you!

    But first, what is really positive thinking? Do you have to be in an upbeat, cheerful and enthusiastic mood all day to be positive minded?

    No. Positive thinking simply means the absence of negative thoughts and emotions – in other words, inner peace!

    Advertising

    When you are truly at peace within yourself, you are naturally thinking positively. You don’t have to fight off negative thoughts, or search desperately for more positive thoughts. It just happens on its own. And here are 2 positive thinking meditation tips to empower you:

    1. Relax as You Meditate

    A powerful, simple yet rarely used technique is meditation. Meditation doesn’t have to take the form of static body posture. It can be as simple as sitting in a comfortable chair listening to soothing music. Or performing relaxation techniques such as deep breathing exercises.

    Meditation is all about letting go of stressful or worrisome thoughts. That’s it! If you spend just a few minutes per day feeling relaxed and peaceful, you automatically shift your mind into a more positive place. When you FEEL more relaxed, you naturally THINK more positively!

    Start with a short period of time, like 5 or 10 minutes a day. You can meditate first thing in the morning, during your lunch break, right before you go to bed at night, or any time. The most important thing is to consciously let go of unproductive thoughts and feelings. Just let them go for those few minutes, and you may decide not to pick them back up again at all!

    2. Practice Daily Affirmations

    Positive affirmations can be used throughout the day anywhere and at anytime you need them, the more you use them the easier positive thoughts will take over negative ones and you will see benefits happening in your life.

    What are affirmations? Affirmations are statements that are used in a positive present tense language. For example, “Every day, in every way, I’m getting better, better and better” is a popular affirmation used by the late Norman Vincent Peale.

    So how does one go about using positive affirmations in everyday life? Let’s look at some guidelines to follow when reciting your daily affirmations.

    1. Use first person pronouns in your message (I)
    2. Use present tense (I have)
    3. Use positive messages (I am happy)
    4. Repeat your affirmations on a consistent basis

    Affirmations have to be said with conviction and consistency. Start your day by saying your affirmations out loud. It wouldn’t take more than 5 minutes to repeat your affirmations; yet when done consistently, these positive affirmations will seep into the subconscious mind to cultivate the new positive you.

    Here’s an example of a “success affirmation” you can use on a daily basis:

    I am successful in everything I do. Every venture I get into returns wealth to me. I am constantly productive. I always perform to the full potential I have and have respect for my abilities.
    My work is always given positive recognition. I augment my income constantly. I always have adequate money for everything I require. I spend my money prudently always. My work is always rewarded.

    Remember, affirmations work on the basis of conviction and consistency. Do yourself a favor and make a commitment to see this through.
