Have you ever thought what kind of quality life you are leading to? One of my colleague asked me once. We discussed it over a cup of green tea.
For many years, mankind is improving its quality of life but with a price. Many people started to belive, the more you spend the more quality you achieve in your life. Many equated quality with luxury.
The naked truth is ‘quality’ is not related with luxury. Luxury is a style of life, if one wants to live with the money he spent on various newer things released in the market by the business people whose only aim is to make money. Life’s quality does not depend on luxury. Am I complicating to make you understand?
Just think of a man with his intelligence, has earned more and got a nice luxurious apartment in a plush locality and has everything in the house positioned with great care and maintained by servants for every category, which the house holds. End of the day when this man lies down in the bed and think of his self, he might have got great stress, developed with anxiety leading to depression just to achieve this luxury and success in his life. Due to the developed stress, this man’s body would have developed all kinds of ailments without having time to take care of himself, he would have already crossed his crucial age to enjoy his life. The earned money will be of no use, if not able to use at the right age.
So do you agree, in the search of luxury people lose the quality in their life. Visit to the doctors increases, but the man is so used to go in the search of luxury, he has no time to accept what the doctors say and follow. He overrides the advises thinking nothing will happen to him. He misses to realize the truth and fact of life when the life shows to him at many occasions. He misses the bus and falls into the medical attention which becomes sometimes impossible.
You might ask me, what am I trying to say and what is my point?
My point is, while running to create luxury in one’s life, man should know how to feed his mind, body and soul. He should know what are the required food for the mind, body and soul and understand not only the money he generated or the luxury can feed them. The money and the luxury which he created using the money might bring self-satisfaction but not the real quality one require in life.
Learning to unlearn a few things in life is the only way to achieve a good quality.
- Unlearn to consume junk food and learn to feed the body with good nutritional food!
- Unlearn the process of having negative thoughts, and learn to feed the mind & soul with good intentions, required information and positive thoughts!
- Unlearn to chat and gossip useless information, and learn to read good books and exchange good authentic information!
- Unlearn the ways of having a sedentary life, and learn to lead an active life through Yoga, regular exercise and planned workouts!
So my friends, ‘Quality of life’ is not something procured, it should be generated from one’s inner self…. 🙂
Do you agree?
