Bore hone ka time kahaan hai. Duniya mein itni baatein hain, itne kaam hain, itni cheeze hain ke agar koi sachmuch interested ho to phir bore hi nahi ho sakta.
Loosely translated to – “Who has the time to get bored. There are so many things to talk about, so much work to do, so much stuff that if a person is really interested he’d never get bored.” Romi, played by Preity Zinta in the movie Lakshya, delivers this line. There is a whole debate around this movie. While it didn’t do well at the Box Office, some people think it is the best performance of Hrithik Roshan till date. I am not getting into that debate but Romi’s line hits the target. The fact is we do get bored. In fact some of us are bored every single day.
And then there are those who think 24 hours are just not enough. But then, Mother Teresa, Mahatma Gandhi, Albert Einstein, Steve Jobs (among other great people) too had 24 hours in a day. Alright I hear you, you neither get bored daily nor do you want to be someone as great as these folks but before you close this window and go away, let’s get down to business and talk about the four things we MUST (yes, in CAPS) be doing daily,
Usually we are not serious about our hobbies. Let’s understand that a hobby that doesn’t excite you is simply something that you ‘like‘. And you may ‘like’ listening to songs but how exciting is it really? Not only does a good hobby act as a stress buster, it is also the immediate next activity that can keep you occupied apart from your job or studies. Investing some time daily in a hobby also ensures that you don’t get stuck in the vicious Home-Office-Home cycle. So get a better hobby than listening to songs or watching movies, something that excites you, something that’s productive and you should be all set.
All of us thrive on relationships. Be it our spouse, kids, parents, friends or relatives. It is thus necessary to dedicate some part of the daily routine and keep up with them. Phone calls, text messages and video calls count only if they are in another city.
One thing that promises to be with us till the very end is our body. Now isn’t that a reason enough to ensure that it remains healthy? There are plenty of 10-minute workouts out there on the internet which you can refer to. However, it is important to note that good health doesn’t really mean that you transform into The Rock. A 10-minute daily workout is what even doctors suggest to stay healthy and fit.
Whatever you like to call it. If you believe in a greater power that is taking care of everything in the universe, you should take some time out to thank Him for all the good things in your life and at the same time pray to get the not so good ones fixed.
You may have ample time daily or none at all, in either case these four can make it in your daily To-Do List. I would love to know if there is a fifth item that can be added here 🙂
