Seven simple ways to bounce back to life, to feel rich

Material wealth and a good financial status in life often bring contentment. ‘Money talks’ in contemporary times. In fact, the craving for financial wealth has become as basic a need to man as breathing.

The only difference perhaps being, while breathing keeps man alive, the yearning for money often leaves him feeling dead. There are, however, several simple ways to bounce back to life and feel rich in the midst of falling bank balances and empty pockets. Among others, here are seven such strategies, one for each day of the week.

It is a great idea to begin the week with feelings of gratitude to experience lingering richness. 

Putting a price tag on a normally functioning body with its valuable organs, systems and functions is enough to give an inkling of how rich an average, normal human being is! “I had the blues because I had no shoes, until upon the street I met a man who had no feet,” goes a Persian proverb. So, “Think and thank” is perhaps the best way to count life’s innumerable blessings and feel rich.

Smiling wide, smiling often and smiling in all circumstances is another superb way to feeling opulent. Smiling will give red colour to the cheeks, white colour to the teeth, pink colour to the lips and silver colour to the eyes, a time-tested inexpensive way to get a facelift and feel affluent.

Making friends and cherishing a wide circle of kinship is a life philosophy that is worth its weight in gold. A life made rich with friends can never lament the lack of material riches.Filling the day with simple acts of kindness can elevate one to heights that no amount of wealth can. As Charles Dickens said, “No one is useless in this world who lightens the burden of another.” Kindness is also that one rare thing in the world that can never deplete no matter how much of it is used for others. 

Living a grudge-free life is recommended by those who learn to forgive. These masters vouch, that saying the words, ‘I forgive you,’ could be the richest of all human experiences.

A strong faith is yet another wealth that can never run out. Prayer, trust and belief in a Creator are forms of wealth that are open to all men.

Finally, caring for health and physical well-being is the one habit that will leave even the poorest of the poor feeling like a man of great wealth. “Health is wealth” is an age-old truth that can never go out of fashion. Good health is a blessing that no money can buy.This seven-point formula is all that it takes to experience abundance in a world of much, yet little!
