Keeping Your Mind Busy Is Important!

After completing my Master’s degree in International Relations, I applied for several jobs at prominent companies. I got selected for most of them, but due to the security issues in my country, I had to recede from the offers. Staying at home with nothing much to do was fine at start, but after a month or so, I became bored and quite lazy.

I wasted my time loitering around the house with nothing to do as my mom and maids did all the house chores. Since I had so much free time on my hands, I began sitting online. I joined different social networks and found plenty of friends I had most contact with on them too. Socializing was fun with them for the first few days, but I began going through their profiles and reading everything they had been doing all these years. Tracking their lives led me to stalking, and when I learnt anything new about the personal life of a friend, I would gossip with the other friends!

It was my mother who pointed out what I was turning into – a gossip queen trying to learn about the secrets of others. She told me I was being unconstructive with my time and was thinking about unimportant things all the time. She quoted Albert Einstein for me, saying:

“Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.”

I knew she was right. I decided to utilize my time by doing something that helped people instead of hurting them. With my degree, I held the option or journalism, and decided to write for the people around me and spread awareness amongst them. I became a freelance writer online and wrote fervently about social issues.

I now write for a magazine and a newspaper online regarding the issues being faced in the Eastern part of the world. I am more constructive with my time and keep my mind busy to avoid ill-talk and gossip. And everywhere I go, I use another quote from Albert Einstein to describe my transformation:

“The idea is to write it so that people hear it and it slides through the brain and goes straight to the heart. “
