Get your life back. Get physical.

23838

If your eyes are always glued to the smartphone screen staring at random articles/status/photos on your Facebook Newsfeed, Twitter and Instagram, that simply means that you need to get your life back.

5 ways to get your life back

  1. Read books. I mean a physical book. Go to library, or get a second-hand book. You’ll feel really fresh and focused.
  2. Exercise. Set a concrete goal. Losing 400 calories is like burning 2 cups of rice, which equivalent to a 30 minutes of stationary bike exercise.
  3. Go out for a short walk. The use of smartphone doesn’t allow our brain to rest. Every microseconds were used to stimulate your brain and that is not good. You need the sub-conscious mind to process all those information through calm activity like a short walk, otherwise your brain will be fried (yeah I was thinking about burn-out actually). The most efficient short walk is when you don’t have any time or target destination.
  4. Meet people and talk to them face to face. Start with a cheesy opening about the whether today. Seriously. Do it. Why? You’d ask. Such opening gives you a glimpse of his/her life experience. That knowledge shall help you to relate each other and you’ll not going to feel lonely. Sure you’ll say that you don’t feel lonely because Facebook connects you more efficiently, but too much of those status/post/articles are able to drive you to depression.
  5. Get a physical hobby. The millenials sometimes responded that their hobby is to surf the internet. Yes but what is the immediate benefits of those information that you get in the internet? Why not use all those information towards doing something physical? Get a physical hobby. Cut something, glue something, sculp something, throw something, clean something. You’ll end up with something nice and great feeling of accomplishment as well.

Thinking too much is like a disease. The cure is Taking Action.

I found something worth pondering in the interwebz, here goes:

Internalise the idea that thinking too much leads to inaction. If you think too much, your mind will focus mainly on the negative part of it. The more you think, then the more opportunity you give those negative voices in your head to convince you not to act. Don’t wait until you’re ready. We’ll never be ready. You either start, or you continue thinking about starting. Realise that thoughts actually have NO REDEEMABLE VALUE. A million thoughts are worthless in comparison to 1 tiny action. Don’t linger on how much you have to do. Don’t linger on how effective your action needs to be. Simply do a tiny action as that is still INFINITELY greater than no action. So just start.

Ceramah Asas Robotik di SMK Padang Kemunting

Hari ini saya telah dijemput untuk datang ke SMK Padang Kemunting, Kuala Terengganu untuk menyampaikan ceramah berkenaan Asas Robotik. Seramai 60 orang pelajar di kalangan penuntut Sains Tulen dan Perakaunan hadir. Ceramah ini juga turut dibantu oleh dua orang pelajar pasca-siswazah saya, Ahmad Israr Ihsan Mainong dan Tengku Hafidah Tengku Hussien. Kami mengakhiri ceramah pendek ini dengan memberi peluang kepada para pelajar untuk menerbangkan AR Drone di dalam perpustakaan SMK Padang Kemunting.

Penerimaan para pelajar dan guru adalah sangat memberangsangkan. Kami sempat beramah mesra dengan guru Kaunseling, Cikgu Fadhlina, guru Fizik, Cikgu Fauziah dan guru bahasa, Cikgu Aida. Kami difahamkan bahawa Cikgu Fauziah adalah sangat aktif dengan aktiviti pertandingan rekacipta kreatif dan inovatif. Pada tahun lepas, SMK Padang Kemunting berjaya merangkul Johan di pertandingan Sains dengan produk mereka, Kereta Solar.

Pada tahun hadapan, SMK Padang Kamunting akan menyertai pertandingan robotik, insyaAllah kumpulan penyelidikan kami, Ocean Robotics Group akan memandu pelajar-pelajar ini dan berkongsi kepakaran semoga mereka berjaya di dalam pertandingan ini.
