Today's lessons : How To Mind Your Business And Having Productive Days

It's often tempting to get involved in other people's private conversations, lives, and issues. However, interrupting or entanglement of personal problems that do not directly affect you can be both unhelpful to the parties concerned and detrimental to your own mental health.

One of the first concepts I'm going to talk about today is the importance of minding your own business.

At first, "mind your own business" would perhaps sound harsh, however in this case, it's actually a gentle reminder to stay on your own lane, so to speak .

" Minding Your Own Business" What Does It Means ?

You 're going to be happier and gain more respect from your peers if you learn when and how to think about your own business. Minding your own business doesn't mean avoiding responsibility or ignoring the world around you.

It simply means understanding when it's best to avoid involvement. Focusing on what you can control and let go of what you can't do. It is taking responsibility for your own thoughts and actions, and allowing others to take responsibility for their own thoughts and actions.

Very often we attempt to control other people, to rule the people around us and, basically, to control everyone and everything but ourselves.

Ironically, the only thing that we can control is ourselves. And even then, this is imperfect control.

Few Examples Of Not Minding Your Own Business

1. Criticizing

2. Judging

3. Blaming others for your thoughts and feelings

4. Reacting to circumstances and others instead of being conscious

5. Trying to solve other people’s problems for them

6. Seeing others as separate from us (separation vs oneness is also a core tenet of conscious living.)

8. Attempting to “fix” others

9. Refusing to accept others as they are

10. Not taking responsibility for your own thoughts and actions
