As Positive As a Proton

First and for most, my sincerest apologies for not posting anything in a week or so. This has been due to numerous reasons like the fact that I’m battling my way out of final exams. So, I’ve been focusing most of my time on studying and preparations. Yes, like everyone else, I struggle with time management and sadly, procrastination. However, I’m so incredibly grateful to the first 100 followers of this blog. Thank you so much, It truly means so much to me! So far, “Blogosphere” has been very welcoming. Okay, enough of the rambling. Let’s get into business!

A few days ago, I’ve had to face an extremely hard math paper. Maybe not as hard, but i felt like I blanked out and didn’t try my best. Almost like, i just gave up. As a very emotional person, i cried for hours feeling so “low”. I obviously regret not giving it as much effort as i should have. I went ahead and asked my mom for advice and that’s when she told me to learn from a proton.

Scientific Background

Although I’m no expert, Protons are positively charged particles found within atomic nuclei. Protons were discovered by Ernest Rutherford in experiments conducted between the years 1911 and 1919. In the beginning, the theory of the existence of protons were questioned by many scientists. In 1808, John Dalton was convinced that atoms were the smallest particles and were indivisible and indestructible. The indivisibility of an atom was proved wrong: an atom can be further subdivided into protons, neutrons and electrons.

Why are Protons Important?

The stability of the atom depends on the number of protons present in the nucleus. Without it, all atoms would all have a negative charge. In the same way, positivity stabilises the human mind. As a positively charged particle, it is a fundamental constituent of an atomic nuclei as it shows the charge and the element. Being a positive person, we fundamentally define who we are, highlighting our hopes and dreams and helps us to become better versions of ourselves. Without protons, the atom would not be balanced and charges would be uneven. Similarly, our life would just bd lopsided with no hope of the better. Just like protons in charge of the positive charge. We are in charge of our emotions leading to our own happiness.

“Think like a proton in the nucleus of an atom. Always positive, though surrounded by apathy and negativity.”

Keeping a positive attitude is not always the easiest thing in the world. I feel that it is the times that are the hardest, that it is most needed. A small smile can spread like a wild fire. It not only will brighten your day, but of those around you. I think we don’t let ourselves appreciate the power of a positive attitude.

I think it is safe to say that we are familiar with the placebo effect. What I learn from that is that the mind is so powerful. We can convince our minds of something and our bodies will obey. So why not use the power of the mind to help us?

Tips and Tricks: Wake Up Easier in The Morning

wakingup

“I love waking up in the morning”- said no one ever. Well at least, no one who has to get up at 5:30 AM for school. The sound of that awfully noisy alarm taunting you to get up and meet the day’s demands is truly a perpetual struggle, I must admit.  However, ever since I’ve started developing some sort of routine on my “Sleeping Schedule” It has been comparatively easier. Although, I wouldn’t go as far as calling myself a “morning person” because I still consider myself a “Sleepoholic”

For anyone else struggling,

Here are 10 things to make waking up in the morning easier:

Snooze-Alarm-475x285

1)  Know the Purpose

Why do you need to wake up in the morning? What becomes your goal and motivation? Don’t just get up because you have to. Most of the time when you’re supposed to set off that alarm, you press the snooze button because you let yourself succumb to that urge. Having a purpose will not only help you get up, but also begin the day with dreams you stored. Accountability is as effective as an alarm clock.

2) Brew That Coffee

Like every process, waking up needs time. Don’t just jump out of the bed in haste after realising you’re late because of a few minutes of extra sleep. Set the clock a minimum of an hour earlier. Brew coffee, relax, stretch, read the paper, take a few minutes for yourself to get used to “reality”

3) Set Your Body Clock

Never compromise the amount of sleep your body is accustomed to, especially if you have to get up in the morning. Know how much sleep you need and adjust your sleeping patterns accordingly. With that being said, this change is not instantaneous. It is going to take major adjustments affecting our daily activities, but the outcome is so worth it! One way to figure out what might work best for you is to set a consistent bedtime that starts about 8 hours before your alarm is going to go off.

4) Shut Down

To get up on time, you must sleep early. Wind up before bed time because spending too much time on gadgets before bed, may not lead to a restful sleep. Be sure to turn everything off!

5) Expose Yourself to Light

Make sure your bedroom is exposed to sunrise or bright lights. This helps your body clock accept your wake up time. This will help make your day brighter by embracing the new day with good mood.

6) Hard To Reach “Snooze Button”

It is always a tendency to postpone the time to wake up, so create an obstacle to force you out of the bed. If the alarm is placed next to your bed, place it elsewhere.

7) Maintain Sleep During Weekend 

Compensating sleep on the weekends feeds into sleepiness for the following week and interrupts the set body clock. Stick to your accustomed bed time even on your weekends to maintain regularity.

8) Drink Plenty of Water

Be sure to gulp down glasses of water before you go to bed and immediately after you wake up. This will not only rehydrate and rejuvenate your senses, it’ll also compel you to get up and go to the toilet.

9) Make Your Mornings Motivationalwoman-happy-morning-prevention

Part of the struggle to wake up in the morning is when you’re alarmed with stress and pressure of having so much to do. Instead of stressing out, think about the good things that await you that day. Dwell on thoughts that puts a smile on your face.

10) Remember to Pray3656249818_woman_praying_answer_1_xlarge

Always pray before going to bed to Thank God for his constant protection throughout the day and every morning after getting up, to seek blessings to start a new day with happiness and success in whatever you do.

“Father, unto thee I pray,
Thou hast guarded me all day;
Safe I am while in thy sight,
Safely let me sleep tonight.
Bless my friends, the whole world bless;
Help me to learn helpfulness;
Keep me every in thy sight;
So to all I say good night.”

Following a routine like this does take time and adjustment and dedication. Don’t expect immediate results or instant perfection, It’s a setup for failure. Instead, improvise and alter as you make this important lifestyle change. Good Luck and I sincerely hope it helped!

Welcome to My Blog!

Sisterly Love

A Family Photo Shoot my sister and I attended a while back. We decided to act a little crazy! #oops :p

All my life, I’ve always wanted to do something challenging and different. I’ve always had ideas firing up my brain about starting an “Inspirational blog“. I consider starting this blog as a form of mutualism since, I truly hope that it inspires me as much as it inspires people.

Main Objective 

Some will comment on the fact that I’m only 16 and I’m trying to “teach” people how to live a better life when this most definitely is NOT the case. As a teenager, the issues I deal with may not be the worst but, this does not make coping with it any easier. Everyone deals with similar kinds of emotional stress on a daily basis. This is a common thread of that we get to hopefully work on with hope and positivity.

Everything in the future blog posts will mainly comprise on real-life issues and its aspired coping mechanism. All based on my own thoughts and perspectives. This covers everything from Trending Topics, Types of Personality, Personal Advice or even Useful Ideas. Treasures of happiness are always burried underneath negativity and complications. Keeping it short and concise, I hope that the readers find it easy to relate to.  Here’s to uncovering tid-bits that’ll hopefully make life more exciting! 🙂

Like I said earlier, the most important aspect of this blog is a mutual connection. So, feel free to ask random questions and involve yourself in discussions. Also, feel free too leave feedbacks and suggestions for future blog posts. Last but not the least, thank you for checking out this blog. It means the world to me knowing that my efforts are appreciated. Keep Smiling! 🙂
