10 Questions To Make You Think – March

This one comes a bit late because I was away in Brazil having too much fun but I haven’t forgotten my promise so here are the 10 questions for March:

  1. How could today have been better?
    Today’s just one day but it might represent your everyday so your answer can help improve not only today but your life in general.
  2. If you could add one hour to your day, what would you do with it?
    Maybe you can rearrange things and find time to do it anyway.
  3. In three words, describe your spirituality.

    It’s very important to try new activities whenever you can. They give meaning to life and make you feel empowered.

  5. What do you daydream about?
    Sometimes this can say a lot about you, what you want and how you are feeling.
  6.  What makes you laugh?
    Laughter is the best medicine. It boosts your immune system, boost your energy, diminish pain and protect you against the effects of stress. Therefore, you should do it as often as possible. Read more about it here.
  7. Who do you aspire to be like?
    And what can you do to achieve that?
  8. When was the last time you felt like you were on top of the world?
    Reliving good memories boosts your happiness. Plus this might help you figure out what you can do to go back to that moment or have more moments like that.

  9.  What do you want to remember about today?
    Every day has something good about it. Sometimes we forget to appreciate the little things that happen in our everyday life.

5 Inspiring Videos Under 5 Minutes

Sometimes we all need a little bit of inspiration, something to makes us think, something to motivate us. But there are so many resources online, so many videos, so many websites. Who has time for all that?

Well, this is a selection of very short videos, all with less than five minutes but still highly inspirational. They are all worth watching. So spare 20 minutes of your life to feel better and inspired.

After my questions to make you think. Here comes a new idea: videos to make you think.

This first one is a classic. You’ve probably watched it before but don’t skip it. It’s worth it watching it again. I bet you’ll smile.

This second video is like a gush of fresh air. It’s inspiring and the whole idea is just beautiful. The song is also perfect: “If you give a little love, you can get a little love of your own…”. We should always remember that.

This third video shows that with motivation and will, you can achieve anything. Plus it proves how powerful and amazing Yoga is.

This one is actually a commercial but it’s such a light-hearted and sweet commercial that it’s worth watching. Just ignore the product 😉

This last one is something to make you think. I really believe in the message shown by this video and it’s something my life and probably this blog kind of revolve around. Watch and think: What are you doing with your life?

10 Questions To Make You Think – November

I’ve bought a book called Q&A a day. It’s a 5-year journal with one question a day to be answered each year. It’s good because it makes you think about your life at the moment and reflect on things.

Q&A a day

I know I’m a bit late but I decided to select 10 questions from November that might be useful to give you insights about yourself and what you could change or improve. They will make you think about what you’re happy with and what you need to do to achieve more happiness. I plan to post 10 questions at the end of each month.

So here are 10 questions to make you think:

  1. What’s your biggest expense right now?
    Since we were talking about money in the last post (10 ways money can buy happiness), this question can help you think if you’re spending your money on something that’s important and worth it. Could you spend less money on that?
  2. What should remain as-is?
    Be aware of what is good in your life right now. What if it changed? Take the time to think about how to keep it the same and how to accept and deal with it if it ends up changing.
  3. Where do you find pleasure?
    Pleasure is not happiness but it can bring good times. Can you spare some time for your own pleasure? I’m sure you deserve it.
  4. What do you always avoid?
    It’s important to think about why you avoid it and what consequences this might have in your life.
  5. Is there anything missing in your life?
    It might be something possible to achieve. Why is it missing? Do you really need it? If so, what can you do to achieve it?
  6. What do you have to get done?
    Sometimes we postpone things for silly reasons. We’re lazy or it’s hassle but there’s a huge relief in getting something done. So whatever it is, why haven’t you done it yet? Maybe you need more time, maybe you need courage, maybe you need a push.
  7. Who inspires you?
    I think a good thing to focus on here is why this person inspires you and how you can inspire others in the same way.
  8. What was the last risk you took?
    Risks usually teach us something. They might be scary and have a bad outcome or they might bring something amazing. Either way, you learn.
  9. What five words describe your mood?
    Are they good or bad words? If they’re good, appreciate it. If they’re bad, how can you improve your mood?
  10. What song could be your self-portrait?
    Songs can have special meanings. If a song is your self-portrait, it better be a positive portrait.
