In the quest of attaining happiness, peace, prosperity and delight- the paths are many and its boundaries are endless. The road does diverge in the middle, but at one point, somewhere, it does reconnect into one- the common goal.
How many of you souls out there, have tried more than one means of attaining peace and constantly tried various methods to discover more efficient ways?
With the increasing speeds of our mind, modern and industrial life- having a cool and calm mind has become an art of professionals and you now need a teacher to teach you how to keep calm.
But no, there are various ways you can keep calm and relax your self. One of them being, which is my main source of keeping calm, going out in the morning.
Praying the Fajr prayer (1/5 prayers Muslims pray daily) in the Masjid and having the contempt spiritual happiness and hearing the healing recitations of the Quranic verses and then cycling or walking around the area until sunrise and a little later really makes my day.
Moreover, having a hobby of photography just adds even more fun and enticement into the whole scheme! The photos that can be taken at such a time are marvellous and there are absolutely no limits to what you can take. All you need is a good camera, not a DSLR, a good phone camera is enough! (I use a phone..)
It’s not the quality of images that is the main highlight of me mentioning this but the fact that the views are so picture-worthy and tranquil that it does really calm a person down! Living in a place in front of a corniche, The morning hours invite a lot of chirping birds, cool and calm breezes, other happy faces walking, jogging or doing their morning exercises and the best? The tall buildings reflect upon the water completely and provide such an amazing view!
Don’t you think such surroundings would definitely calm you down?
This is how I like to start my day, and once I get home, I’ll be doing something else for a while before I start studying (because I absolutely hate studying immediately after finishing one happy task) like writing this post right now!
