On day 2, I was still using the same track as day 1: the lanes in-between waste water ponds on the palm oil mill I am working at. It’s a bit smelly, you know, but not so much to the extent that it affects your mood to walk around it. After all, my nose is already adapted to the smell, hahaha… 😀
Here is my visual for day 2:
As you can see above, my time is still around 30 minutes, burning 149 calories, 2.25 kilometers of distance, obtaining 23 heart points.
And here is my track around the ponds:
So, that’s it for day 2. I hope you are all well and healthy and fresh and peaceful… 😉
According to this site, “Rescue” envelopes the aspect of God’s willingness to go to great lengths to rescue Lauren, even when no one else can hear her. Rescue is supposed to be sung from God’s perspective.
The line that I particularly love from the behind-the-scenes-video above is, and I’m paraphrasing here, that ‘hope‘ is seen by Lauren as firm as the mountains, meaning that she’s is so optimistic, so hopeful, even in the darkest night. Such a strong and beautiful statement! 🙂
I wish the same for you: Be convinced that God will rescue you, no matter what. Be faithful.
Here is a TED talk by Katarina Blom about creating happiness instead of finding it.
See what the whole idea is and listen just how it sounds to you personally on the following video:
Having seen the video, following are some important things I’ve got:
Positive thinking alone is not enough when it comes to well-being. It takes positive action instead, repetitive positive action, to be more precise. For example, texting kind words to people at work, done repeatedly, would benefit you in the long term. Just as Nike’s slogan, “Just Do It!.”
A study by Daniel Gilbert and Matthew Killingsworth found that, on average, our mind is wandering 47% of the time we are awake. It is really hard to focus on the task at hand, so relying upon the mind power alone to think positively is definitely so hard, if not impossible.
We are also biased almost all the time, and this is reflected in how we do make priorities. We tend to put first one complaint from a coworker instead of some compliments from the same person. One complaint leaves a stronger emotional mark than some compliments, and this emotional asymmetry is strongly related to the very design of how our brain evolved: to survive. Survival mode is the default mode of our brain at work.
