Live your life

Allow me first to wish you a happy Eid Al-Fitr and may Allah accept your worship and bestow His blessings on you all. I had a feeling that Saturday may be the first day of Eid and the start of the new lunar month, yet technology proved me wrong! Technology in our modern day life is in every major and minor detail, and we have no choice but to accept it.
I saw the following post on Facebook and would like to share it with you. The post starts by saying “Fear will kill you!”, then goes on with some sort of a chronicle as follows: They told us on the news in 2001 anthrax will kill you, 2002 West Nile Virus will kill you, 2003 SARS will kill you, 2005 bird flu will kill you, 2006 E coli will kill you, 2008 the financial collapse will kill you, 2009 swine flu will kill you, 2012 the Maya calendar predicts the end of the world, 2013 N Korea will cause WWIII, 2014 Ebola will kill you, 2015 Daesh will kill you, 2016 Zika virus will kill you, 2018 Nipah virus will kill you, and 2020 coronavirus will kill you.
The fact is that fear will kill you – if you become addicted to this type of news. Stop believing everything on social media, preoccupy yourself with reading and give yourself time for prayers and positive thinking. Do not relinquish your share of this life, be happy and enjoy it. Keep your trust in God strong, because you are going to live as long as God decides, so do not spend your years in fear.
Adopt a healthy way of life – eat healthy food so you can get a potent immune system. Get rid of illusions and worries – you will not live any longer than your age, so do not waste it in fear of losing it. Life has become too fast – the days are going as fast as a soaring rocket into the heavens, so we must be open minded to changes and new developments that we may not be familiar with.
This will definitely affect our way of thinking and affect our psychological behavior, and we must adapt to the environment around us so to enjoy better psychological health. World Health Organization studies revealed that psychological problems increase the risk of getting many physical diseases, and define health as indivisible and a condition of physical perfection.
So, in order to maintain a healthy psychological life, one has to be optimistic and be around optimistic people, while at the same time have self-respect. We should not think about certain matters more than it is necessary. When we go out, we must be easy in dealing with others and behave as ourselves. Physical activity is something effective in having a good mood, including sports and exercise.
These are a few simple steps that help in maintaining peace of mind and a healthy psychological state of mind.
Final Word: “Optimism is essential to achievement and it is also the foundation of courage and true progress.” – Nicholas M Butler
