      This is a group costume than can accommodate any large group. With a list of 100 Batman villains you have plenty of options to choose from. You can go old school with a forgotten villain like Doctor Hurt, go with something in the middle like the Riddler, or go with the most recent movie villain and choose Bane. There are so many options with this one you can’t go wrong!

      3. Three Blind Mice

        This costume is perfect for a group of three. Create your own canes, grab a headband with mouse ears, and throw on a black outfit and you’re set. You never know who you will run into at the Halloween party, so don’t forget the sunglasses.

        4. The Sims

          Another great idea for a group costume this Halloween. This costume is cheap, and you can have an unlimited number of people in your group. Don’t forget the true sign of a Sim — the green diamond.

              This group costume might take a little more time to put together, but you will definitely get complimented on your efforts. If you’re going with the traditional Mario Kart game, then this is perfect for a group of eight.

                      This is the kind of costume only those who love horror movies can pull off. If you’ve seen the movie you know how creepy these characters are. If you want to dress up as Jack and his family, the costume is great for a group of three (especially if you have a young child), and the twins costume is best for two. Make the costumes as creepy as you can!

                      10. Characters from Kill Bill

                        This group costume can come from many different parts of the movie. Depending on what part of the movie you want to dress up as you can have a large or small group. As you can see in this picture, you don’t even need to be a main character from the movie! And come on, who doesn’t want to dress up as a badass for Halloween?

                        11. American Ninja Warriors

                                                                Why Is It Hard to Live A Peaceful And Happy Life?

                                                                Our Habitat Has Become Too Technological

                                                                The world has accepted the idea that technology is often the cure for all evil. We have accepted, as a society, that everything technological will make us live a better life without fully investigating the many side effects that modernity brings.

                                                                There are a number of technological side effects that have a tremendous impact on your life that the media rarely tells you about.[1] Some of them include self-harm, economic inequality, having less sex, and even suicide. The global community is becoming less happy because of technology.

                                                                How can anybody live a peaceful and happy life when they are depressed? Technology advancements, ladies and gents, is a major reason for why we are living a poor life because it has infiltrated our lives too much.

                                                                According to my research, Americans spend an average of 8 hours a day looking at the computer screen — The average screen time spent on smartphones alone is about 20 hours per week. That’s a lot! No wonder why living a happy and peaceful life is so difficult these days.

                                                                Too Many People Don’t Want to Unplug

                                                                Americans check their phones an average of 80 times during vacation.[2] Some admit to checking their smartphones 300 times every single day. In countries like Brazil, India and China, the situation is no different.

                                                                The reality is that people are constantly plugged into technological devices and this behavior is literally making people all over the globe fight an inner war with themselves, which consequently makes them very sad. As we know, war is the enemy of peace which won’t make anybody happy.

                                                                Listen carefully:

                                                                We have a global anxiety epidemic because people don’t want to unplug from their smartphones and most people aren’t doing anything to fix it. It is a sad state of affairs but very real. This obsession with technology is turning us into perishable robots who live terrible lives.

                                                                Advertising

                                                                The era of anxiety is here to stay. There is little doubt about it. We can, however, fight back with the best remedy of all — We call it mindfulness!

                                                                Thank God there is an antidote to this whole technological madness. Without further ado, let’s go straight to the mindful exercises.

                                                                8 Mindfulness Exercises to Start Practicing

                                                                There are tons of mindfulness exercises available for you to engage with out there.[3] In the paragraphs below, I will include the best ones I’ve personally tried or have seen my close friends and family members try.

                                                                Are you ready for it? Let’s go!

                                                                1. Pray Daily

                                                                You should pray on a daily basis. Why is that you may ask — Well, because science has told us to do so.

                                                                When people pray, they feel peaceful, almost eliminating anxiety. Worries become secondary, and often gives people energy and hope to cope with the difficulties of life.

                                                                Prayer can make you more confident and focused. Prayer also helps you with self-control, helps to control pain, and can protect you against illnesses and disorders like cancer and high blood pressure. At least, this is what researchers from Harvard Medical School have said.[4]

                                                                Pray. You won’t regret it.[5]

                                                                2. Pay Attention to Your Inner Thoughts

                                                                A lot of people allow themselves to be influenced by their negative thoughts. Be different and resist believing in them. It is a bad habit that can lead to unhappiness.

                                                                By the way, if you do feel this way, chances are high that somebody other than you put these thoughts into your head.

                                                                Here is my secret to combat this cancer — look at things objectively. I bet that if you look at things as they are, you will realize that most if not all of your negative thoughts are only inside of your head.

                                                                Advertising

                                                                If you pay close attention, you will quickly realize that these voices aren’t worth your time. Believe me — Ignoring them and looking at things with objectivity is often the best course of action.

                                                                This article can guide you to beat negative thoughts:

                                                                How to Stop Automatic Negative Thoughts When You’re Overwhelmed

                                                                3. Smile Often

                                                                Smiling will slow down your heart. It will also relax your body because when you smile, your body releases endorphins which in itself has a number of positive benefits for you as a person.

                                                                Smile often! You may want to smile early in the morning, during the day, and late in the evening. It is amazing what happens to you when you decide to smile instead of being grumpy.

                                                                Surrender your problems to a nice smile. You will notice two things. First, most people just don’t which makes them live a miserable life. Second, if you decide to smile often, you will eventually smile unconsciously which is the ideal.

                                                                The moment that you smile unconsciously, you then know that you are truly happy.

                                                                4. Organize Your Working Desk

                                                                A messy desk will make you less productive and can agitate and overstimulate you. You don’t want that.

                                                                When you clear your desk, you engage in deep inner-thinking and your systematic decision making ends up becoming therapeutic.

                                                                Most people realize that they are most creative when their creative space is clean and organized. The former often makes people more aware of what they are doing which lends to less stress and more productivity.

                                                                Organizing your desk will also make you more energetic and focused because order often decreases chaos which is a condition that often slows down daily progress.

                                                                Advertising

                                                                5. Celebrate Your Friend’s Victories

                                                                I love this mindful exercise. One of the best ways to live a happy and peaceful life is to celebrate the victories of others. When you do that, you automatically make your friends in a better mood which makes you in a better mood, as well.

                                                                Happiness is contagious! We might as well celebrate others as much as we can. If you find out that your peer has won an award, celebrate with him! If your friend is the recipient of a local charity award, celebrate with her!

                                                                What is also awesome is that when you celebrate with others, they often celebrate with you in return. This, ladies and gentleman, will make you feel fantastic. You can’t go wrong with this one, period.

                                                                6. Listen to Your Spouse/Partner

                                                                God put someone in your life for a reason. You might as well listen to him or her.

                                                                I listen to my wife everyday. In fact, I often ask the following question to her, “Amanda, what are your thoughts about…” or “What am I missing about…” It is shocking what I hear back from her. Without her having much context and perspective, by the art of observation in my own nonverbal behavior and the behavior of others, she accurately gives me incredible insights which helps me out with living my life to the fullest.

                                                                I’m a firm believer that spouses are supposed to engage in interpersonal communication every day. I most definitely do and will continue doing it. You should do the same.

                                                                7. Give Yourself a Break from Technology

                                                                You can’t be in total equilibrium if your computerized devices control your life. You must get away from technology on a daily basis.[6]

                                                                How do you do that? This is my formula:

                                                                First, take this smartphone control test. It is only ten questions but this test will place you somewhere in the human robot cycle continuum.

                                                                If your score is between 25-30, take a break from the computer (or smartphone, pad, laptop/desktop) every twenty minutes and stop being on a computerized device after 8:00pm.

                                                                If you score between 30-35, still take a break every 20 minutes but stop being on these devices at 5:00pm.

                                                                Advertising

                                                                If you score more than 35, you need to take action immediately.

                                                                Limit computer use as much as possible throughout the day. Give yourself as many breaks from the computer as possible. Are you ready for the challenge?

                                                                8. Go Exercise

                                                                Go exercise at least three times a week. I don’t care if you need to workout early in the morning, late in the evening, on the weekends or during work days. Working out is absolutely imperative for you to live happy and peaceful life.

                                                                The stresses of the modern world are too much for you to neglect this important mindfulness exercise. When you go to the gym, you burn calories, focus on activities one step at a time, your mind relaxes, anxiety decreases, you sweat and often think about topics unrelated to your work place among many other benefits.

                                                                You must exercise at least three hours each week for optimum results. Why? Just take a look at all the benefits of regular exercising:

                                                                12 Benefits of Regular Exercise You Should Know

                                                                The Bottom Line

                                                                It’s in your best interest to learn and put these mindfulness exercises into practice. Now that our habitat has become too technological and many people just don’t want to unplug, engaging in daily prayer, celebrate your friends’ victories, and listening to your spouse are among the best ways to be mindful about what you are doing and how you are living.

                                                                It is possible to live a happy and peaceful life. It only depends on you.

                                                                Go exercise! Take a break from technology and invest in you! Life is too short for distractions.
