Minimalist meditation

There are more and more research articles about the benefits of meditation.

I approach meditation with a minimalist style. Do the simplest thing, think the simplest way.

All i need is a quiet space in my home, start with 5 to 10 minutes. Set the timing on your phone so it rings after 5 minutes, or 2 minutes if you can’t wait.

Sit down , cross your legs, and sit still, breath in and out. Don’t let your brain and your mind wondering about with waves of thought. Just think nothing, the way to do this is just focus on the breath, in… then out…, then repeat…

Meditation has helped me sleep better, better quality sleep, reducing stress and a clearer mind. A clearer mind has helped me to tackle life in a more optimistic and effective approach.

Find joy in your daily work

You love your job, great!! However there must be a day or two when you feel that you have had enough, and you want to break free.

Just take a minute to stop all the speculation in your head, just live at the present

Stop thinking that you will have to spend a whole day working and it’s boring

Just take a breath, enjoying the fresh air, focus on your steps if you are walking , focus on your breakfast if you are having one

Don’t let your mind wonder to the past , don’t worry about some unfinished work, or speculate about the future, the present is all you have right now, live it, make it, enjoy it!

Have a fantastic day!

Minimalist diet

It is amazing to try the minimalist diet, and see amazing result!

I’ve always wanted to loose weight, drop a dress size without too much hard work, and i’ve been told it’s quite impossible.

Surprisingly, it is a myth.

The minimalist diet is actually working!

What i meant about the minimalist diet is

– minimal exercise, I actually didn’t do any exercise apart from meditation and a bit of yoga

– minimal meat and carb intake, just stay hungry, only keep fruits and vegetables in your fridge

– any food can be delicious when you are hungry, I actually enjoy all the sweet potato noodle, glass noodle and veggie.

– fruits can help with my sugar crave so cut down on biscuits and chocolate

And after 2 weeks, the tummy is getting more flat, very happy with this and ready for the next beach holiday coming

Be minimalist and happy always!

Anger and fire

Anger is like a great fire

It destroys everything it touches

Nothing left

Only regret

Only tears

We can control this fire

Just with a deep breath

Just by controlling our mind

Focus on the breath

Let the anger melt away

And never have to say it’s too late

Minimalist quick meal

Yummy delicious bonito glass noodle, smoked tofu and vegetables

It took 15′ to make and tasted 5 star

Calm moment

Be calm

Be present

Be with your breath

Be happy

Find a zen place in your home

Kiss goodbye to more junk stuffs!!

To celebrate the New Year, i have been decluttering my bedroom even more.

I did an intense clearing of my bedroom about 3 months ago, and the room did get more spacious and more room to relax. However, i found out that it could even get more spacious with the help of my sister.

She came for a visit and we shared the idea of minimalism. She looked at my bedroom and with her fresh view, there are more questions about whether i need these stuffs??

So it took us 2 hours this morning to throw another few more bags for recycling.

I feel great and now i am in love with my bedroom even more. It could well be a great place to find my calm self and meditating every morning or night.

Simplify your relationship

I found that the more you expect from your partner, the more chance that you will get disappointed.

So why don’t you simplify your relationship, simplify your expectations, it is more likely that you will get happier.

I have applied this method to my marriage, and it actually works, i have more time to enjoy life and focus on the positives, instead of wasting time getting stress over my relationship.

Expect nothing, everything will be a bonus in your life and you will feel that you are so blessed and your life is full of lovely surprises and happiness.

Let ‘s have the happiest new year of our life starting today!

Love and courage

  • “Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” – Lao Tzu.
  • Keep your love alive everyday !

Focus and simplicity

“That’s been one of my mantras – focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.”
Steve Jobs

Great saying from Steve Jobs !!
