Optimize your life with serenity
By Jean Ricot Dormeus
Artists and scientists alike nurture their inspiration, creativity, and productivity in an ambiance imbued with serenity. French painter Monet produced a series of paintings entitled Lillies showcasing nature elements, light, shadows, water, and garden components. Nature’s beauty and serenity inspired him. His paintings have brought well-being-enhanced serenity to countless art lovers. For his part, Newton had an eureka moment in the serenity of his garden when he observed an apple falling. He formulated the theory of gravity which revolutionized physics. Serenity optimizes our life.
Clutter, noise, crowd may have their place, but serenity places us on a higher dimension in life.
Escapes to nature sites, hobbies and sports are known for their serenity inducing effects. And we are yet to take full advantage of them. According to Men’s Health South Africa, edition of June 2020, “On average, men spend more than triple the amount of time watching TV as they do on “sports, exercise, and recreation”. How can we reach a life-improvement destination if we avoid the serenity-inducing road?
Serenity goes beyond invigorating well-being and stimulating robust health. Bill Crawford laid out additional benefits we can reap, “Serenity is not just an escape, but a precursor to acceptance, courage, wisdom, and change.” As Jesus and many successful leaders did, let’s set aside some moment of serenity to reflect, recharge and refocus.
Sometimes, our circumstances or frequent urgent matters do not leave us the time or predisposition to seek serenity. That’s precisely when we need short retreats to understand ourselves and the world around us. Further, in serenity our subconscious mind brings out solutions we have been after for a long time.
If you want to excel and prosper, tweak your habits to give serenity time a try. You will be amazed how fast you will turn your life around. Optimize the quality of your life with serenity.
