15 Things To Remember If You Love An Adventurous Person

15 Things To Remember If You Love An Adventurous Person

To get the best out of a relationship with someone who is adventurous it is best to see the world the way they see it. Adventurous people are unique and different. They wouldn’t just settle with the norm and belong to the conventional system of getting things done. Rather, they would prefer to trudge through new territories and leave a familiar world behind.

1. They are triggered by the hunt rather than the catch.

What keeps an adventurous person excited and pumped up is the thrill of the hunt and the journey. They would prefer to go through unknown territories in search for answers rather than sit still to wait for them. What keeps them going is the experience of the journey, the challenges, the fears, dangers and pleasures. Through the journey they discover and learn and the catch only becomes a physical symbol of their exploits.

2. They believe in the present.

They believe in what they can do presently to change their fate. They can’t wait for tomorrow or dwell on yesterday. They know they have to seize the moment and keep a clear direction to seizing their windows of opportunity.

3. They can’t settle in a comfort zone.

When things become too comfortable, the excitement dwindles. When you love an adventurous person, know that she or he will never be stuck to a particular routine or a set schedule. An adventurous person knows that new territories offer limitless possibilities and outcomes.

4. They understand their fears and anxiety.

We all have worries and fears. We are caught in the act of not knowing how the world will respond to our actions or decisions. However the adventurous is not worried about the outer world. Rather the adventurous person is concerned in dealing with and conquering his inner barriers and winning from the inside. They don’t get lost in their fears and worries; rather, they manage them.

5. They are not concerned about people’s opinions.

Adventurous people understand that to accomplish a task or see through a project the onus is on them rather than on whatever people have to say. They are not bothered with what people’s opinions are, because at the end of the day it is only theirs that counts if they want to complete a mission.

6. They know that it takes a step through failure to succeed.

The adventurous mind is like that of a baby trying to walk, they know they have to keep trying or take those early steps to get a firm stand. The adventurous person doesn’t fear failure, he knows it is a vital part of the process to become successful at what he does. Whether it is in riding a bike or starting a business, the adventurous person is willing to meet failure if he has to succeed.

7. They live in between depression and joy.

Between the joys of accomplishing a goal are thrill and depression. The adventurous person sometimes has to stake everything from relationships, love and comfort to achieve his purpose. Traveling to unknown territories like a foreign country can mean not having a friend who speaks your language.

8. They are inspired by new grounds.

It could be a different language or it could be the story and the marveling edifice of the Taj Mahal—adventurous people are awed and inspired by new grounds. They know there are no limits to the beauty of the world and are willing to explore these new grounds to find something fascinating in culture and splendor.

9. They don’t ever seem to grow up.

Their minds are always wandering and like a child, they are full of activities and ideas. For an adventurous person life is about unraveling mysteries, growing young and discovering new grounds.

10. They believe in their dreams.

They have dreams and are committed to them. They do not hesitate because they feel the real is out there and awaits them. Somewhere between, they are positive and know they are favored to see their dreams come true.

11. They are not after security.

Many people are after security and assurances. And they believe they are captains of their own realities. Whatever decisions, between dumb and genius, should take them to unbelievable destinations rather than keep them in a particular spot.

12. They are after freedom.

Going to a foreign land or pursuing a new purpose should free them from that box they were locked in their whole life. They wouldn’t want to regret the chances they never took so they pursue limitless possibilities.

13. They have many exciting stories to tell.

They have so many interesting stories to tell as they have experienced many pursuits and journeys. Their stories offer details and a dynamic edge to those things you may not have known.

14. They don’t blame others for how their adventures turn out.

They assume full responsibility for their decisions and the commitments they make whether it is fortunate or not.

15. They will always value their space.

Loving an adventurous person means you appreciate them and understand that their freedom or space will always be important to them. The space to operate and chart newer courses will always offer them another day to become a purposeful person.

30 Small Habits To Lead A More Peaceful Life

30 Small Habits To Lead A More Peaceful Life

In today’s world, true peace must come from within us and our own actions. Here are 30 small things you can do on a regular basis to increase your overall sense of harmony, peace, and well-being:

1. Don’t go to every fight you’re invited to

Particularly when you’re around those who thrive on chaos, be willing to decline the invitation to join in on the drama.

2. Focus on your breath

Throughout the day, stop to take a few deep breaths. Keep stress at bay with techniques such as “square breathing.” Breathe in for four counts, hold for four counts, then out for four counts, and hold again for four counts. Repeat this cycle four times.

3. Get organized and purge old items

A cluttered space often creates a cluttered spirit. Take the time to get rid of anything you haven’t used in a year and invest in organizational systems that help you sustain a level of neatness.

4. Stop yourself from being judgmental

Whenever you are tempted to have an opinion about someone else’s life, check your intentions. Judging others creates and promotes negative energy.

5. Say ‘thank you’ early and often

Start and end each day with an attitude of gratitude. Look for opportunities in your daily routine and interactions to express appreciation.

6. Smile more

Even if you have to “fake it until you make it,” there are many scientific benefits of smiling and laughing. Also, pay attention to your facial expression when you are doing neutral activities such as driving and walking. Turn that frown upside down!

7. Don’t worry about the future

As difficult as this sounds, there is a direct connection between staying in the present and living a more peaceful life. You cannot control the future. As the old proverb goes, “Worry is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but it won’t get you anywhere.” Practice gently bringing your thoughts back to the present.

8. Eat real food

The closer the food is to the state from which it came from the earth, the better you will feel in eating it. Choose foods that grew from a plant over food that was made in a plant.

9. Choose being happy over being right

Too often, we sacrifice inner peace in order to make a point. It’s rarely worth it.

10. Keep technology out of the bedroom

Many studies, such as one conducted by Brigham and Women’s Hospital, have connected blue light of electronic devices before bed to adverse sleep and overall health. To make matters worse, many people report that they cannot resist checking email and social media when their cell phone is in reach of their bed, regardless of the time.

11. Make use of filtering features on social media

You may not want to “unfriend” someone completely, however you can choose whether you want to follow their posts and/or the sources of information that they share.

12. Get comfortable with silence

When you picture someone who is the ultimate state of peace, typically they aren’t talking.

13. Listen to understand, not to respond

So often in conversations, we use our ears to give us cues about when it is our turn to say what we want to say. Practice active listening, ask questions, process, then speak.

14. Put your troubles in a bubble

Whenever you start to feel anxious, visualize the situation being wrapped in a bubble and then picture that sphere floating away.

15. Speak more slowly

Often a lack of peace manifests itself in fast or clipped speech. Take a breath, slow down, and let your thoughtful consideration drive your words.

16. Don’t procrastinate

Nothing adds stress to our lives like waiting until the last minute.

17. Buy a coloring book

Mandala coloring books for adults are becoming more popular because of their connection to creating inner peace.

18. Prioritize yourself

You are the only person who you are guaranteed to live with 24 hours a day for the rest of your life.

19. Forgive others

Holding a grudge is hurting you exponentially more than anyone else. Let it go.

20. Check your expectations

Presumption often leads to drama. Remember the old saying, “Expectations are premeditated resentments.”

21. Engage in active play

Let your inner child come out and have some fun. Jump, dance, play, and pretend!

22. Stop criticizing yourself

The world is a hard enough place with more than enough critics. Your life is not served well by being one of them.

23. Focus your energy and attention on what you want

Thoughts, words, and actions all create energy. Energy attracts like energy. Put out what you want to get back.

24. Assign yourself “complaint free” days.

Make a conscious decision not to complain about anything for a whole day. It might be harder than you think and the awareness will stick with you.

25. Surround yourself with people you truly enjoy being in the company of

Personalities tend to be contagious, and not everyone’s is worth catching. Be judicious in your choices.

26. Manage your money

Financial concerns rank top on the list of what causes people stress. Take the time each month to do a budget, calculate what you actually spend and sanity check that against the money you have coming in.

27. Stop trying to control everything

Not only is your inner control freak sabotaging your sense of peace, it is also likely getting in the way of external relationships as well.

28. Practice affirmations

Repeat positive phrases that depict the life and qualities you want to attract. It may not come naturally to you, but it works.

29. Get up before sunrise

Personally witnessing the dawn brings a unique sense of awe and appreciation for life.

30. Be yourself

Nothing creates more inner discord than trying to be something other than who we really are. Authenticity breeds happiness.
