Preparing For Sleep

My lights are turned down to a minimum.

All my devices are off.

I am in my sleeping clothing and my room is in sleep mode.

I seem to respond to sleep masks, quiet, white noise and a sleep body scan to produce deeper relaxation.

I Got To Stop Over Watching TV or Streaming

AI And Me

This is what I am doing to cut down on my poor TV and streaming behavior.

This is part of a plan to start being more proactive and living a lifestyle that is best for me.

AI On Bing Vs. Me: Stoicism

AI: That’s a good question. I think it depends on how you define a lifestyle and something more. For some people, Stoicism is just a set of tools and techniques that they use to cope with life’s challenges and improve their well-being. For others, Stoicism is a way of life that shapes their values, beliefs, and actions. For some, Stoicism is even a spiritual path that connects them with the divine reason or logos that governs the universe.

What do you think? How do you see Stoicism in your life?

Me: It is about Cicero, On Living and Dying Well. I referred to a big piece of it in my last blog entry on Michael’s Space. “Grab Hold Of Yourself And Stop Being Afraid Of Your Freedom”. My blog will continue to have elements in future blog posts. But first, do no harm to myself and others. And remember this is about being and doing.

Grab Hold Of Yourself And Stop Being Afraid Of Your Freedom

Yes, living life is complex, all is contradictory,divisive and possibly illusory in many many ways.

But live the good life.

Use the ‘proper use of impressions’.

There are so many ups and downs!

Do no harm to yourself or others.

Seize the day!

There is a certain relationship to living each day that may seem to be a contradiction.

Life looks like pattern, problem and solutions and so much more.

Eat well, exercise, use positive stress to embrace all of yourself.

Engage people, work, play and find a work life balance.

Keep reassessing life to make your goals adapt to what works for you.

It is your job to do your best in your circumstances but that may not be fair to you or others.

Be grateful, give back, love one another.

There is always going to be a need to change, challenge and grow.

Rest, relax, meditate, be calm, be still, be silent.

And fail, make mistakes, regroup, recover, get stuck, misbehave, find out, discover, relearn, be a critical thinker, be compassionately understanding, do more with less, strive to live a better way.

If you need help, look for it and accept all you can stand, then take some more.

Mike Idea For A Vid

What about a drama/documentary to stir your imagination on challenging topics?

I have a sincere interest in history, physics and energy use and application in society today.

My pic is a little outside mainstream but will attract some people.

Calm, Still, Silent: Do no harm!

If you had to give up one word that you use regularly, what would it be?

I actually use all the above words all the time.

It is not impulsive. It is a practice.

I can stop any time.

Why bother?

Why Understanding And Accepting ‘Argument’ Is Important

In today’s society, people are becoming dumber, unengaged, and too nice.

Dumber, because technically we don’t think enough to work out our own problems, nor do we help sort out societal problems.

Luckily there is a way out. Or through our modern day dilemma.

Unengaged, because we isolate, avoid others and remain uninformed about the very issues causing all these symptoms in society today.

Too nice, we have been followers in one of the riches cultural exchanges of this generation.

Sink or swim? Stop. Think. Decide.

You need to learn to reverse course, learn why and how to argue.

Woke And The Effects on Society

There is a lot of fear and unrest as a result of left wing authoritarian behaviour.

Optics tend to be difficult to control due to the instability that people are creating on multimedia.

It appears we all need to become aware of the insecurity and instability many citizens and cultures are undergoing in society today.

Many stable professionals like the author above are trying to reach out on platforms like twitter to get word out about the pitfalls and dangers.

It may be more important for average people to find out what will work for them.

This is a ‘story’ that is just getting bigger.
