People with common sense are seen as reasonable, down to earth, reliable, and practical.
But here's the catch. "Common sense" is neither common nor sense. There's not a whole lot of sound judgment going on these days (though whether it is worse than in the past, I can't be sure), either way, it's not common.
If common sense was common, then most people wouldn't make the kinds of decisions they do every day, right?
So let's look at why common sense is not really so common after all...

For many of us, we get stuck in the past because of our need for certainty.
Certainty is fundamentally about survival (looking at Maslow’s hierarchy of needs).
We all need to feel certain that we can avoid pain, and, ideally, find some form of comfort/pleasure.
Continuous pain means continuous damage, and that eventually leads to our demise. For almost all of us, it’s frightening to step into the unknown.
It’s difficult to be vulnerable, and it can be overwhelmingly uncomfortable to have that sense of uncertainty about what lies ahead.
So, what do we do…?
We hang on to the past – because even if it’s steeped in pain, discomfort and feelings of hurt, it’s what we are familiar with and what we have certainty about.
But what is this all costing us? How is it impacting our relationships, our lives and our happiness? And how do we learn to loosen our grip so we can move forward in a healthier, happier way?
Let's explore a few way of how to let go of the past.

Unhealthy mental health habits are behaviours that have a negative effect on the way we think and the way we feel about ourselves.
We often believe our mood and our mental health are solely dependent on external factors and that we have little ability to control them. We often wonder why we get so easily irritated, upset, sad, lethargic, and bored in life.
Then, as a solution, we try to improve our mood and cope with stress by engaging in unhealthy behaviours. And this, unfortunately, makes our mood even worse.
Yes, it’s true that our mood is affected by our brain chemistry.
But, remember one thing...
Our brain chemistry is largely affected by our behaviours and habits in life. If we treat ourselves with care and know what makes us happy, we are going to have a more balanced brain chemistry.
Here are a few common bad mental health habits that might be making you unhappy and unsatisfied with your life.
What are false beliefs?
They are beliefs we have about ourselves or our experience (internal as well as external) that are untrue and limiting. They live in our unconscious and since 90 percent of our actions stem from our unconscious, our false beliefs play a huge role in nearly everything we do.
Also, since they live in our unconscious, we may not be aware of them and how they affect our daily lives.
For example, if you believe you are unlovable, you may sabotage relationships, hold on when you shouldn’t, or avoid getting into relationships altogether.
And then “logic” may provide you with explanations on why you are doing this when, at the core, it’s fuelled by your false belief that you are unlovable.
Our behaviour stems from our beliefs. And what our life looks like is a result of our collective behaviour.
So, if we change or dissolve our beliefs, especially our false beliefs, we can change our behaviour and ultimately change our life.
A belief is based on a perception, or one’s interpretation of the acquired knowledge.
So let's investigate how to change limiting beliefs.
Sometimes in life, we find ourselves at a dead end, a crossroads, a path that seems to go nowhere and often we find ourselves uttering these 9 oh-so-familiar words: “I don’t know what to do with my life…”
No matter what stage you are at in your life, if you are unhappy or unsure as to how to proceed, then there’s one major thing you need to do right now… And that is re-evaluate.
When I was in high school, I remember thinking that I had to pick a career at which I would be “happy and successful at” for the next 50 or so years of my life. I mean, come on! A 16-year-old needing to face such a daunting task. How are you supposed to know what’s going to make you happy for the rest of your life, when you’re only 16 and you’re still getting a thrill out of watching “The Matrix”?
You can’t know!
You can’t even know what’s going to make you happy five years from now. But you can know what makes you happy RIGHT now. And if you’re in a situation where your current position — or choice of educational path — isn’t it, then you need to move on.
If what you’re doing is not working for you, then do something else. And if you’re uncertain about WHAT exactly to do, then just go and DO RANDOM stuff that you think might be interesting and if you didn’t like the class or workshop or course or whatever, then cross that off your list. See, life is often about experiencing things and realizing what you don’twant.
So, what to do when you don’t know what to do with your life…?
I want to share 8 Things to Remember When You Don’t Know What to Do with Your Life…
So you've hit "Rock Bottom"...?
You've reached a point where you feel that nothing and no-one can dig you out of the perceived hell you find yourself in and you are imagining, or even worse, planning an exit strategy?
I get you! I was there as well a few years back. If there's one person who understands, it's me.
The thing is, nobody ever tells you how to deal with extreme failure in life.
I had no idea what to do, where to go, or who to talk to.
My family didn’t even know that I needed help.
All I knew was that nobody was coming to my rescue. Nobody could pull me out of this predicament.
I had to do it myself.
It wasn’t until I narrowly escaped death that I started to wake up from the fog and realized that I had to take back my life.
How did I do it?
By going through the following five steps...
The official definition of FOMO is:
“a feeling of anxiety or insecurity over the possibility of missing out on something, such as an event or an opportunity”
But I don’t need to tell you what the definition is, you have all experienced how it feels when your friends are on social media doing something and you aren’t. Missing out on all those jokes, adventures, parties, life events and plans.
Basically, the feeling of exclusion.
I’m sure we have all experienced the gnawing anxiety of FOMO as it ruins our once happy mood with envy, sadness and a sense of lack, right?
Comparison is the thief of joy and as we compare our lives to those on social media - even though we cannot be compared because our lives are so beautifully different - FOMO kills happiness.
So what can we do to overcome it?
Here are a few tips and techniques to get you started...
Lot of fear going around, uncertainty about what is to come, what actions to take, what NOT to do and where we will all ultimately move towards as a species.
Through all of these jumbled emotions, it’s helpful to keep in mind that at its base, only two emotions exist: Love and Fear…
ALL other emotions stem from these two core emotions.
Anger, regret, blame, jealousy and the like… are all different spin-offs from fear.
Kindness, compassion, peace, trust, Gratitude and appreciations are all examples of emotions that stem from a frequency of love.
Now normally I would focus on the love and go more in depth about how to increase and improve in that direction of thought…
BUT, we’re not currently in ‘normal’ circumstances, are we?
So here are a few tips, tools and techniques you can use to overcome the fear you might be experiencing.
