The simplest rule for a happy life


The-Desna-River-in-Chernihiv

You should never expect anything from anyone. Never. Nothing. From no one.

Only in this case, you will be pleasantly surprised and will never suffer any more.

All human sufferings always originate in inflated and unreasonable expectations.

It’s very simple, isn’t it?

As you get older, you tend to be a little less patient with people — people who are not prepared, people who have unrealistic expectations, people who make unrealistic demands, and people who think they’re more special than other people.

And always remember the most important thing. There are two ways to be happy: improve your reality, or lower your expectations.

Cannot but agree with Bruce Lee: I’m not in this world to live up to your expectations and you’re not in this world to live up to mine.

How to develop independence in children and aged people


Old-man-and-child
Let me give you a short advice. Children and older people must do everything themselves. Dressing, tying shoelaces, washing dishes, making a bed, putting clothes in a closet, turning on and off the TV, doing minimal cleaning, and doing many other things themselves.

Remember the main rule: you should never do work that old people and children can do themselves.

Independence and responsibility are very important for personal development and vitality support. While excessive care always only makes it worse for both children and aged people.

How to train your brain efficiently?


Artemy-Lebedev-about-the-brain

The brain is a muscle. The brain must be trained daily. Only then it will be vigorous and strong. That is wht recording thoughts has an amazing effect on the human brain.

As soon as a thought is recorded, a place for a new thought is freed. If you keep all your ideas in yourself, dangerous phenomena arise.

Firstly, a person stops to invent new things. Secondly, a person thinks that he has a lot of ideas in his head, although it’s actually good if there are at least a few (Artemy Lebedev, “Brain”).

How to succeed during coronavirus self-quarantine: Alexander Pushkin, Isaac Newton, and you


Now almost all countries of the world are in quarantine in connection with the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19). However, do not lose heart. You must strictly adhere to the quarantine rules and finally do everything you planned to do before but never had time for.

The Great Russian poet Alexander Pushkin and the outstanding English physicist Isaac Newton were also forced to quarantine for some time. Look what came of it.

Alexander Pushkin, cholera and quarantine

In 1830, Alexander Pushkin, while preparing for the wedding, briefly stopped in financial matters at his family country seat Boldino. A sudden outbreak of cholera and quarantine locked the poet in the wilderness for over three months.

It became the most striking and fruitful period in Pushkin’s creative work. In unexpected quarantine seclusion, the poet felt an unprecedented surge of inspiration, mastered new genres and literary forms, and as a result wrote an incredible amount of his remarkable prose and poetry.

Isaac Newton, Plague, and Quarantine

In 1665, Isaac Newton was forced to leave Cambridge and returned home. The reason for this was the quarantine during the outbreak of the plague in England. Deprived of the opportunity to teach and communicate with colleagues while in isolation, Newton went much deeper into scientific research. It was then that he discovered the Law of universal gravitation and wrote many scientific papers, which have retained their relevance in our days.

What to Watch, Read and Listen to During Your Coronavirus Self-Quarantine?

It is a bad time. Thousands of people across the world are sick with coronavirus. Those who aren’t are being encouraged to stay away from public spaces. Schools, museums, movie theaters, bars, restaurants – all closed. You’re home, and you need a distraction. Let me help you. In this article you will find some propositions for what to watch, what to listen to, what to cook, how to entertain your kids. Be safe.

It will also help you to cheer up:

To crown it all

Any crisis is not only difficulties and a huge inconvenience. It is an amazing period when windows of opportunities are actively opening. Strange as it may seem, it is the best time for new ideas and discoveries, creative breakthroughs and insights.

Right now, during quarantine, we can get all these “I`ll do it later” from the far shelves of the subconscious – I’ll write, read, finish, look, try, create … later.  You can waste this time in rubbish, panic, and depression. But you can direct your energy to the embodiment of what will become a new step in your life.

So, self-quarantine, self-educate, and do not panic! Everything will be great!
