How Writing Things Down Can Change Your Life

What do you write down? For most of us, writing consists of emails, task lists, and perhaps the odd work project. However, making time to write down certain things, such as our daily experiences, our goals, and our mental clutter can change the way we live our lives.

Here are six different ways that writing things down can change your life, and what you can do to get the most out of each.

1. It clears your mind for higher-level thinking.
You can clear your mind by writing things down in two different ways.

David Allen, productivity speaker and author of Getting Things Done, recommends doing what he calls a “core dump”. This involves writing down every task, activity, and project you need to address. This could range from picking up milk on the way home, to a multi-person project at work. Writing down every “to-do” item you can think of clears space in your head for more important topics.

You can also use a technique called “morning pages”, which was pioneered by Julia Cameron, author of The Artist’s Way. Morning pages involves completing three pages (around 750 words) of stream-of-consciousness writing. Through doing this first thing each morning, you clear your head in preparation for the day’s most important thinking.

2. It helps you process your emotions.
Writing down what’s on our mind is a great way to work through inner conflict or process your feelings around a particular situation. It’s similar to talking a situation through with a friend, except it’s a useful way of strengthening your self-soothing abilities and enhancing your self-knowledge.

3. It gives you a record of the past.
If you keep a journal and regularly write down your thoughts and feelings, you’ll soon have a record of your experiences that you might otherwise have forgotten.

Reading back through this record is not just fascinating—it also provides a valuable insight into your thought process and emotional life. You can savor moments that you could have potentially forgotten and increase your levels of gratitude.

Keeping a journal can also enhance your levels of self-trust. When you can look back and see how successfully you’ve traversed and dealt with important decisions and tricky situations in the past, you’ll feel more confident in your ability to do so in the future.

4. You gain a sense of achievement.
Writing things down can foster a sense of achievement and progress, expanding our possibilities and increasing our productivity.

If we journal, it’s incredibly satisfying to fill up one or more journals with our thoughts and feelings. Many people harbor dreams of writing a book, but balk at the reality of how long it takes. When you finish a journal, you’ll realize that you have written a book. This opens up a new sense of possibilities, not just in writing but in other areas of our lives, too.

Equally, if we write down everything we need to do in a particular day or week, we gain an additional sense of satisfaction when, having completed the task, we can cross the item off our list. Feeling productive enhances our productivity, creating a virtuous cycle.

5. It helps you think big.
Writing things down gives you space to think big and aim high. No matter what’s going on in our outside world, when we write things down, we enter a world of possibility.

Doing this helps us stay motivated, and it reduces the chance that we fall prey to self-limiting beliefs. (Even if we do, we can keep writing things down to process our feelings!)

When we write things down, we have a chance to explore dreams and ambitions that we might not feel safe revealing to anyone else yet. We also have a space to keep track of all our ideas and desires so we can return to them later.

6. It makes you more committed.
As well as offering a space for exploring possibilities, writing our goals and ambitions down makes it more likely that we’ll achieve them.

As with any goals, they are most effective if they are SMART: specific, measurable, actionable, realistic, and timed. These are all variables we can work out and commit to through writing.

Writing down our goals is the first step towards making them a reality. It can also help us stay accountable. When you’ve outlined your SMART goal in writing, display it somewhere you can see for an extra shot of motivation.

Scientists Fear Mutation of MERS Coronavirus from Animals to Humans -Gulf News

Dubai: Earlier this week, medical investigators for the first time have confirmed the Mers coronavirus in a camel, one belonging to a Saudi man also ill with the new virus. The tie has provided a critical clue into the virus’s animal hosts and transmission

The first definitive confirmation of the Mers coronavirus in the camel provides a “missing link” for disease experts, said Henry L. Niman, a microbiologist in Pittsburgh who tracks the Middle East virus and other infectious diseases.
Mers typically causes severe respiratory problems.

The virus typically spreads in limited fashion from person to person after appearing in a community, but medical experts have been mystified as to the original source animal.
Owning racing stables or farms with camels and other livestock is popular among Saudi and other Gulf residents with the means to do so. Some, but not all, of the originating human cases in clusters of Mers have been found to have come in contact with camels or other livestock.

But the reality too is that if you walk past the endless rows of vegetables, past the dozens of stalls selling every possible part of animals in any market around the world, scores of people are selling and butchering live animals, breathing the same air and in constant contact with the animals’ blood, urine and faeces.

Of the roughly 400 emerging infectious diseases that have been identified since 1940, more than 60 per cent are zoonotic — they came from animals. Throughout history this has been common. HIV originated in monkeys, ebola in bats, influenza in pigs and birds. The rate at which new pathogens are emerging is on the rise, even taking into account the increase in awareness and surveillance.

Which pathogens will cross the species barrier next, and which one is the greatest potential public health concern, is a subject of intense interest. A modern outbreak, caused by a previously unknown virus, could travel at jet-speed around the world, spreading across the continents in just a few days, causing illness, panic and death.

..:: Beauty ::.. [Written by: Lauren T]

Beauty is the Qur’anic verses
Exquisite in it’s sequence
As the Arabic words drip off one another
Silky a transition as the pattern of the rain.
Raining on our barren tongues and quenching the thirst of searching

Beauty is the Hijab
Complementing the natural splendor of a woman
Hiding that which is hers
Promoting a sense of awareness
That all she does is for her Lord

Beauty is the sound of the mu’azzin
Calling to that which is called to five times each day
Reminding us of our purpose as mere mortals
Welcoming us to our reward
Feeding our souls as we continually starve them

Beauty is the act of prostration
To the one and only Allah ta’ala
As we bow our heads so full of pride
Acknowledging our insignificance
Together in congregation and alone

Beauty is the status of our mothers
Women who strive in the way of our Lord
Nurturing the cries of the young
Caressing their promises
Whispering to the ears which hear more then we fathom

Beauty is the bond of love
For Allah ta’ala alone
As brothers and sisters, husband and wives
Peace is bestowed upon us
And charity spread through smiles

Beauty is the Qur’anic verses
Which spell all that we know
In which it’s hidden beauty may be unlocked
Unlocked by the searchers
Who care not of this world.

***
May Allah make beauty easy for us…insha Allah…amin

Today’s Quote

“It always seems impossible until it is done” -Nelson Mandela

Don’t Judge!

This particular story has been making the rounds online for quite some time. It has been sent and resent so many times that it mau have lost its original text. Nonetheless, the underlying lesson has remained unchanged

“A young lady was waiting for her flight in the
boarding room of a big airport. As she would
need to wait many hours, she decided to buy
a book to spend her time. She also bought a
packet of cookies.

She sat down in an armchair, in the VIP room
of the airport, to rest and read in peace.
Beside the armchair where the packet of
cookies lay, a man sat down in the next seat,
opened his magazine and started reading.

When she took out the first cookie, the man
took one also. She felt irritated but said
nothing. She just thought: “What a nerve! If I
was in the mood I would punch him for
daring!”
For each cookie she took, the man took one
too.

This was infuriating her but she didn’t
want to cause a scene. When only one cookie
remained, she thought: “ah… What has this
abusive man done now?” Then, the man, taking
the last cookie, divided it into half, giving her
one half.

Ah! That was too much! She was much too
angry now! In a huff, she took her book, her
things and stormed to the boarding place.
When she sat down in her seat, inside the
plane, she looked into her purse to take her
eyeglasses, and to her surprise, her packet of
cookies was there, untouched, unopened!

She felt so ashamed! She realized that she
was wrong… She had forgotten that her
cookies were kept in her purse. The man had
divided his cookies with her, without feeling
angered or bitter.
“While she had been very angry, thinking that
she was dividing her cookies with him. And
now there was no chance to explain herself,
nor to apologize.”

* * * * * *
There are 4 things that you cannot
recover:
The stone… after the throw.
The word…after it’s said.
The occasion…after the loss.
The time…after it’s gone.
