Season of Take – Overwhelmed ( Day -01 )

Background

In a season of take,  it is easy to be overwhelmed.

Cope

Notes

Here are some resources that can help one cope.

  1. Holiness
    • Your holiness is important
    • You have given and are giving so much already
    • Please do not part with your holiness
  2. Naturally Produced
    • Look for things your body can naturally produce
    • Unfortunately, a lot of gyms are closed
    • So please take to the outdoors
      • Neighborhood
        • Put on your face mask
        • Take a nice walk of at least 15 to 20 minutes
        • The longer the better
      • Community Parks
        • Community parks are even better
        • The scenery is modeled for supple take in
  3. Solitude
    • Look for places and time of solitude
      • Squeeze in private time to shut yourself in
      • Look for things to submerge yourself in
        • Look for things that you can escape in
  4. Look for people you share commonality
    • For me, it is programmers and bloggers foremost
      • As I research an item and find blog posts, I make quick mental notes
        • Is it fresh material?
        • Is it an existing material rendered in an easier way to digest?
        • Does the author really want me to get it
          • And, just really giving it away that I can easily comprehend it
  5. Hear and Listen Well
    • Hear and listen to the right people
    • For me here are the people I enjoy listening to
      • Christain
        • Ravi Zacharias
        • Damon Thompson
      • Islam
        • Shaykh Hamza Yusuf
        • Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad
        • Nouman Ali Khan
    • Reading
      • Khaled Hosseini
  6. Music & Musicians
    • Music is therapeutic
    • It can bring one up out of slumber
    • Usually rendered in short, 3 minutes span
  7. Wish Well
    • Look for people you can wish well
    • I look for people I can send social media friend request or just a message
      • These are people doing well already
      • And, I just want to thank them for something nice they posted online
      • I am glad they posted something and kept it out there
  8. Live and Model Well
    • As you draw near to God
    • He starts to change you from the inside out
    • Look and Identify people that can benefit in the same way
    • You are still lacking and so others that are being similarly tempted will be drawn to you
    • Your closeness to God will thus not only benefit you, but also people who are within the same context and proximity to God, the divine healer
