BlogChatterA2Z Day 6 – Five ‘S’ Technique

Sort, Set in order, Shine, Standardize and Sustain– These are the Five ‘S’, an improvement technique inspired by Japanese culture adopted by many organization in order to make the workplace organized and smooth to operate, adhering to efficiency and safety as well.

Now you might be thinking what this Five ‘S’ has to do with the Mental health or self-help BlogchatterA2Z theme I am representing, so I ask you a very simple question, when organizations can adopt means and ways to obtain efficiency and effectiveness in productivity, and also monitor it on regular basis, then why do we as a human fail to take care of our selves, our mind and our body altogether?


Why can’t we adopt certain measures to help ourselves? In this post I will share my five cents with you which I started imbibing in my daily life to make it bit peaceful, organized and healthy.

For a lot of people growth happens very painfully because the necessary preparation has not taken place. Most human beings have unfortunately allowed themselves to be molded entirely by the external situation ~ Sadhguru

Hence when we give our control to the external forces then we can never imagine where it will take us or how we will end up ourselves, so we got to take charge and here is how:


Self-love is not selfish or being obsessed with self, it simply means we choose our selves over anything else which costs our mental peace. If we want others to love us, we shall love ourselves first. It’s a state of appreciation for oneself that supports our physical, psychological and spiritual growth. When we begin to love ourselves, we begin to explore all our strengths and weaknesses. How to start?

  1. Know what best works for you
  2. Whom should you stick with
  3. Stop comparing yourself with others


Resisting temptation is the key here. Self-control is nothing but your own ability to alter all the responses in order to avoid certain consequences, undesirable actions or behaviors which comes in your way. No matter how smaller your goal is if you keep pushing it you will never achieve it, you know you have diabetes and you need to control, you know you procrastinate and yet you complain. How to start?

  1. Meditate as it improves your emotional intelligence.
  2. If you have an idea, just don’t sit on it, take immediate actions.
  3. Set short term goals, rather than pressurizing self with higher goals.


Self-Awareness is like a mirror, an approach to see yourself as it is without any biaseness and take needed action. Improve your self-awareness by being in present, focusing on your breathing and your senses, it helps your brain’s ability to resist destructive impulses. We become mindful of our capacities and abilities and act as per that, and not how others want us to behave. How to start?

  1. Try to listen to your body, your body gives you signal when it gets tired.
  2. Talk to yourself, do not indulge in mental arguments, just listen to your inner voice.
  3. Soak in your feelings, vent out your emotions.


Something I wrote in detail on my very first day Read Here Self-Acceptance does not only stress on self-understanding but also helps in self-introspection which helps us understand our weaknesses and strengths, and find ways to make things work for us. How to start?

  1. Let go of the past, incidents, which is not in your control
  2. Stop blaming and cursing your self for some wrong decisions you made in life.
  3. Celebrate every little success you attain.


For all the things I have mentioned above, let me tell you something, you will perhaps read it, might like it, even love it or entirely find it a bogus idea, but trust me you will forget about it because that’s what we do with our mind and our body every time, we read something good we like it ,we want to practice it but we are either too lazy or just not disciplined enough to put things at work.

If you really want to regain your willpower and have control over your daily habits, start working on it now, here is how:

  1. Follow the KISS principle- Keep It Simple Stupid. A very effective managerial technique.
  2. Reward yourself when you accomplish a set task
  3. Get adequate sleep, don’t exert and start fresh every day with gratitude.

At last, I would say be kind to yourself and love yourself, give ourself ome me and little space.Take care of your body and listen to it.

If you like my post, Challenge yourself to practice the tips given above for a week.

Take charge of your life.

Much love and gratitude

  1. This is brilliant. Applying the principles of Kaizen in our own lives for improving quality of living. The perspective deserves a round of applause. Thoroughly enjoyed reading this.

  2. This theme is a boon for so many of us here who actually procrastinate and keep delaying important things in life. Such a simple and effective explanation of such complexities of life. Keep inspiring and pulling the sheet off our heads πŸ˜› .

  3. I have learned self love, self awareness, self acceptance. Aiming for Self discipline and self control now. Totally agree. This 5S is better than the operational one! Good thought there Priyanka!

  4. It was such a helper..but truly the one thing that I lack in is Self discipline. And you said it write , though I want to do it but the road to implementation is what I miss often

  5. I love and appreciate all the five “S”.I also try to follow all but nowadays I am lacking proper sleep and not doing yoga and exercise. Feeling exhausted. I have to make a balance.

      1. Excellent post Priyanka. So true that in the process of appreciating others we forget ourselves whereas that should be from we need to start. Will definitely try to follow your tips.

  6. Beautiful post. If we don’t like ourselves, we cannot love others and others will not like us. We must not curse ourselves for past mistakes but learn from them.

  7. A wonderful post. So true, if we don’t love ourselves, we cannot love others and no-one else will love us. We must stop being super critical of ourselves and learn from past mistakes.

  8. Wonderful Post! You talked about some very relevant points and if we are able to create small wins every day on these aspects, we definitely can be in a happier space. Loved reading it Priyanka…Great Job.

  9. Your body is a beautiful place to reside. Show some gratitude. Take care of it, love it and pamper it. Beautifully penned Priyanka!

  10. All five tips are valid. I will restrict my comment to Self-Love. Self-love is something that acts as the precursor to self-respect. Self-love should come from inside us. It is a quality and as far as possible we should be aware of our strengths and weaknesses without giving too much importance to other people’s opinions. Most people cannot know us as well as know ourselves. Their opinions are bound to be biased. Of course, sometimes, we need to depend on others to understand the image we project externally. But all said and done our self-love has to be intrinsic and that usually comes by accepting our qualities as human beings without contempt for ourselves or pride in ourselves.

      1. Acceptance is key I feel to change any given situation and that is the toughest sometimes. Some great actionable points shared here! πŸ‘ #ishaspire

  11. A very relevant post for old-timers like me. I was brought up to give and give some more. I have done just that all my life and now when I am alone and depressed there is no one around. I am trying to unlearn what I learnt as a kid. Focusing on I Me Myself for a change. It is not easy but still, I am trying and you youngsters teach us a lot. Thank you πŸ™‚

  12. Loved the 5 S theory. I am definitely going to challenge myself for a week. Thanks for sharing this.

  13. Your clarity of thoughts and brilliant perspective towards life is quite evident in all your posts, Priyanka. Love reading your blog.

  14. These are powerful and empowering 5 Ss. If we can make them part of our life, our life would be so sorted and happy. Thanks for the nudge, Priyanka πŸ™‚

  15. Very well written and explained all five S.. Was waiting for your posts on Sheroes…. Thanks for this wonderful post.. Much needed to live life peacefully and happily..

Your comments make my day πŸ’œ
