If you want to make your life more meaningful, one of the ways to do it is to fill the voids. Fill the emptiness that exists in it. When you make your life more productive, automatically your life gains more meaning.


So what is it that really drives you? Here are some common hobby ideas that can enrich your life.

Gardening is considered a great hobby and it is ecologically beneficial too. But what is most significant about it is that it gives you a feeling that you can “create” life. When you see your saplings grow, the feeling they can create in your mind is nonpareil. Many people who devote themselves to gardening do so because it teaches them to appreciate life in a better way.

Traveling.  A lot of people enjoy traveling. Visiting different places, eating different foods, understanding how people in different parts of the world live differently, picking up their languages and dialects, learning about their cultures and customs is something that can really enrich your mind. A person who has traveled a lot has improved the mind with various experiences and will have a lot of stories to tell.

Nature Painting.  Got a skill with the paintbrush? Then probably painting will be more in your line. Even here, you could try your hand at nature painting, because this is an art that can really make you appreciate even the smallest things in nature. You realize everything that exists in the world around you and you can become happier about your own life too.

Reading opens up the mind. It makes you more creative; it makes you imagine better. You learn how to see beyond the trivial things that people usually think about. You begin to see the larger picture. The more well-read a person is, the more enriched in mind he or she will be.

In short, any hobby that has something to teach you or helps you to see things differently can be a great idea for a hobby. These hobbies help you to look beyond your normal survival instinct and make you a much better person, who is living optimally.

For a lot of people, the family is the most important institution in their lives. It is an extended part of their lives. It is where they see themselves mirrored and make an impression of themselves. There’s an old saying that says a man is only as happy as his family is, and it is true even today. Any problem with the family is bound to show immediately on us, and hence if you are thinking about optimal living, you cannot ignore the family aspect.

However, society is changing today. We are breaking ties with our close ones even if we are living in the same house. There are many reasons that are fueling this. People are losing the emotional connect they had earlier. Celebratory family dinners, festival gatherings, occasions, all these things are dwindling away. People are bringing their work home and that’s taking them away from their family too.

This is leading to problems such as loneliness, depression, spats within the family members, periods of non-communication between members of the family, etc… each of which can take a serious toll on the lives of everyone involved.

So what is the way to ensure you live more fruitfully with your family?

One of the main things you will need here is communication. Whatever the extent of your work is, however busy you are, do make it a point to speak with every member of your family every day. People from India have a great saying here – A family that eats together stays together. This is a distortion of the English saying – A family that prays together stays together. But if you were to think about it, both these sayings are quite apt. Both of them can be quite instrumental in bringing families closer. Make such a routine in your household. You may not pray together, but you can certainly eat together. Switch the television off during these meals. Schedule a fixed time each day. You will find that you exchange much more in these few minutes than you do in your entire day.

Health is a very important aspect of human life. It is very true to say that if health is lost, everything is lost. Hence, when we speak about optimal living, this is the first point that we need to tackle. But people understand health in different ways. For some, the absence of any disease spells good health. For some, health means being able to be fit and capable of performing all their tasks without getting spent. For yet others, good health means living longer. Though there are different ways that you may look at it, good health essentially boils down to one thing – Being able to make your life more productive and hence live a more enriched and optimal life.

If you give it a thought, wealth is an effect of good health, not otherwise. Only when you are healthy can you perform well and earn a better income. Your riches begin to increase as long as you are healthy. In fact, people build their financial securities for their old age, when they will be no longer able to work on account of ill health, right in their younger days. People salt money away for those days in which their health will begin to dwindle. This clearly shows one thing – we need good health to be able to earn money.

A few people have the wrong idea. They think that riches can buy good health. They think that when they have a large amount of money, they can keep diseases away by going for the best curative options possible. But, even the richest people die, don’t they? Health is a great leveler, we all know that but only few of us accept it.

But, as long as we live in the world we are in, we cannot shun the idea of wealth either. The optimal thing to do, therefore, would be to strike a balance between health and wealth. If you are looking at making your life better than what it is now, you have to learn this secret.

Here are some things that you must take care of:-
   → Work for money, but don’t overexert yourself. It is all right to do so occasionally, but people who do it all the time never amount to much. They will be able to earn a good amount of money presently because of their doubled efforts, but they won’t be able to do so for long. Sooner or later, their health will begin to fade and they won’t be able to earn their usual steady amount of money too.
   → Work can take a toll on health in other ways. Socializing with your office friends, for example, could be disastrous to health in the long run. Make sure you know where to draw the line.
   → However early in the morning you have to begin work, always make sure that you keep at least a half hour for stretching and doing some meditative exercises. This will not just keep you healthy but will also help you do better at work.
   → Research on various health plans and choose one for yourself. This is going to be quite beneficial to you sooner than you think.

Many people speak about their problems in life. In fact, this is one of the hottest topics of conversations. It doesn’t really matter where you meet someone, all it takes is a friendly smile to start pouring out your life’s woes to them. Everyone does the same. The result is that no one really knows how happy one is. Since everyone is talking about their miseries, it does seem that no one around is leading an optimal life.

This is where the problem lies. We think that the term ‘optimal life’ should have a definition. We think that we should be able to peg down someone’s life entirely and say, “Ah, now his is an optimal life!” But it doesn’t happen that way, does it? You might think that someone with a lot of money or someone with a beautiful wife must have an optimal life. But when you get to know them, you begin to see the great big problems that lie behind this exterior façade of theirs and you realize that their life is not all that hunky-dory as you thought it to be.

There’s a great saying I am reminded of here –


It’s true. We think the neighbors are always happier than we are. We think they are leading a more optimal life than we are. But if we were really to sit down and make comparisons, quite likely, we would find our problems to be the least.

So, where are we heading with this? The point I want to make here is that our lives are only as optimal as we want them to be. We have it entirely in our hands how beautiful we want to make our lives. If we want to sit and brood that life is toying with us in every way possible, it is. But if we plan to take things in our hands and not let life jerk us around, it won’t.

We have to plan just how much control we want to give our lives.

An optimal life is a very individualistic thing. For us, an optimal life would be one in which we are completely contented and satisfied with whatever we have. It doesn’t matter whether we are rich or poor – if we are satisfied with what we have, it is an optimal life that we live.
