Look Up

Psychologists and researchers have shown that looking at the night sky improves your happiness and well-being – and not only at that moment, but the effect lasts for weeks afterward.

Star gazing also makes you make more ethical decisions and makes you have a more positive outlook on life, care more about the planet, and less about materialistic things.

Watching the stars, our Milky Way, galaxies, clusters and earth’s moon shifts you from a focus on daily concerns to a mindset of connection, compassion and the “bigger picture”.

It also helps you feel like you have more time.

You will be happy to hear that you will also have these results if you simply look at an image of the stars or our universe (see for example the photos taken through the Hubble Telescope).

“Looking up at the stars is one of the most powerful sources of positive and connected emotion, that happens when you are confronted with something vast that dwarfs you and is beyond your capacity to really comprehend.”

Author & Scientist Jo Merchant

Tonight, watch the night sky.

My 5 Favorite Quotes By Wayne W. Dyer

Nip Pessimism In The Bud:

Noone can posibly know enough to be a pessimist.

End comparison syndrome once and for all:

You don’t need to be better than anyone else.
You just need to be better than you used to be.

Check your beliefs:

Change the way you look at things
and the things you look at change.

Judgement Karma:

When you judge someone else, you are not defining them,
You are defining yourself.

You are spirit:

You are a spiritual being having a human experience,
Not the other way around.

Think About It

If Zimply Zen had a hymn, it would be this song. Enjoy!

Put on some borrowed kicks,
Hang all your notions up.
It’s never what it is.
Wisdom is asking “what?”.

There is another side
Down where the rabbit lives.
My world will blow your mind.
Just have a look at it.

Don’t gotta change your mind,
Just try to open it.
I’ll let you use my eyes,
See what I’m dealing with.
People with different stories, divided by
Different categories and reasons why.
The smart speak; the wise, they listen.
