Oh god. What a day. Going to rewind it back all the way to the beginning.
I wrote about my entire day just then but for some reason, my gut was like, don’t post this so…
The Stoic way of solving and overcoming jealousy.
When we have something we cherish like a spouse or a friend or a certain status within a group but we feel threatened of losing it, we experience resentment which we call jealousy. So, how can we deal with this?
I finally finished The Power of Habit and the last chapter was a little underwhelming and anti climatic. However I thought it was still worth reading. I learned several things from the book and there were many times where I didn’t wanna put it down because it got super interesting.
Ohhh I’ve only got a chapter left of The Power of Habit (there’s literally 12 pages). But it’s almost 8pm and I’ve got to do some reflecting/reviewing.
Just quickly about this book — a few things I have learned:
Yoga was a bit of a challenge today and I laughed at one point because I realised I’ve still got a long way to go in terms of flexibility and balance.
Meditation was so-so today. I feel like half of yoga is meditation but it’s definitely not as relaxing as just sitting upright and being still. Yoga is exercise for me at the moment as I’m still trying to build the muscle and strength.
