Lockdown #5: Self-Control

do you guys ever try not to do something, its tricky isn't it "Self-Control - A Stigma". I guess if we all had perfect Self-Control we would be these movie gods and rockstars but that is the thing we are not and to most of the extent that is fine. The point still remains the same why can't we control ourselves, Ironically the movie "Fight Club" (oh, yes i am movie nerd) is not about Physical Fighting it is about what you want ti choose a Chick or a Broccoli, Reading a Book or Reality TV. It showed us that the Self-Control is the epitome to ultimate spirituality we face everyday. Like Meditation is Free, Fasting is Free, Showing Gratitude for things is Free, Spirituality is Free but Consumerism isn't Free. It is a Trap actually Consumerism is the exact opposite. It contains Strong animalistic desires Sex, Sugar, Porn and Junk Food of any kind and We can actually escape this trap of Consumerism and Ego.

WE CAN BECOME FREE, if we only just try...

Lockdown #4: Holding Onto Anger

Life is truly just far too short to get hung up on things we cannot control. - Diksha 2020

HOLDING ONTO ANGER IS LIKE DRINKING POISON - well these times are crazy and calmness has left the body and brain. Yes, I realize that anger is a natural emotion that we can’t always control feeling but we certainly have the power to CHOOSE how we are going to respond to that anger. If we scream, holler, stomp our feet and throw a good old fashioned temper tantrum (and make sure we tell everyone on Twitter) what are we gonna solve besides dragging everyone else down with us? Is that fair? Yes, I also realize that you have the right to be angry and I don’t have a clue what you are going through, nor can I understand without experiencing it myself.

I could share 23 years of reasons to holler and tell the world that life isn’t fair, but what the heck is the point? Will it change anything at all? I don't think so. What if we decided to try something new? What if we DECIDED to use our anger to po…

Lockdown #2: Discipline

Welcome to Prateek's Lockdown Diary again, how are you guys doing ???

The longer you go without working out, the less tone you get, the more weight you gain, the less likely you’ll ever start working out again. The longer you go without posting a journal, the more anxious you get about posting one, the less likely you’ll start posting again. Same paradox.

Morning!

woke up on the sofa. The TV’s on. because last night out of sheer boredom I started watching "The Vanishing of Sidney Hall" at an odd hour but let me tell you its a great movie ! It’s 5am. You turn the TV off and you sit there. You feel a little groggy, No bread and No sugar. did the same old breakfast and watched some News again about this demon Coronavirus. Took a shower. Clean up the room. helped my mother doing the laundry.

Talked to my Life in Mumbai and she gave me few other things to think about, so I'd get my mind of this Pandemic because i just couldn't stop talking about this Covid-19 She sai…

Lockdown #1: Frugality

All my lights are off. Besides my glowing Laptop, it’s nearly pitch black in my humble bedroom. I’m wearing this Bloodshot Tee that I bought in Mumbai. I like this t-shirt because it makes me look like I'm a fan of comic series but seriously telling you that it's a lie I'm a fan of Jason David Frank that's why I wear it. Man, Quarantine is hard, just when i thought that my venture was going good, Coronavirus came for it hard and pushed it further but still here Alive and Kicking I'm that mechanic trucker boy from the wrong side of the tracks. My nose and hands are still cold though. It’s much quieter in my Area. I actually like it, for once people are following the Lockdown which is a good thing, and this silence living far away from any busy streets. hmm, Good.

Saving the Money and living with Frugality is the new cool now. I’m awake and the world might be asleep now at 12:40 am. It’s so quiet that I can hear the ringing in my ears. It reminds me of all the havoc…
