“Inner silence promotes clarity of mind; It makes us value the inner world; It trains us to go inside to the source of peace and inspiration when we are faced with problems and challenges.”
We live in a fast-paced world, and we want everything now. The one treasure you must possess and enjoy is today’s treasure, quieting the mind. It’s time to get your monkey brain in control and shut down the mental chatter. Today I will give you a snapshot of how to take control and set yourself free.
Why do I write so much about this subject? Because I have lived through trial and error and have learned how to master my thinking to better my life, I can tell you that my improvements have allowed me to feel in control even when things are not going quite the way I want them to go. Yes, I too experience things that are not pleasant, but I choose not to talk about them because that’s giving fuel to something I do not want to grow. That’s why today I will share with you how you can quiet your mind to live a more focused life.
Look at all the benefits you will acquire by learning how to quiet your mind.
Don’t forget that feelings are derived from thoughts, and if you don’t take control of your thoughts, chances are you are going to wind up in a habitual negative thinking pattern. Decide today not to be a prisoner of your beliefs and bad habits, take control today.
Be Nice To You
Self-care, you have heard this countless of times via social media, and you are tired of hearing it. But, that doesn’t stop me from letting you know that you matter and how you treat yourself will overall determine how your day unfolds. Take time to care for yourself by getting a massage, reading a good book, practice personal development. Do something beautiful for yourself today.
Do Things Slowly
Nature is teaching us every day how taking your time to do something will allow the essence of what you are doing take its course and grow. Count from 10-0 while taking deep breaths in between, take a breather and allow yourself to complete your task at hand in a more calm manner. You will be able to be more present and avoid unnecessary mistakes.
All Systems Down - (disconnect from technology 1 hour before bed)
There are many factors on why this is important. But, I will focus on sharing with you that if you take the time to unplug before going to bed, you will feel that you will sleep better and recharge accordingly for the next day. That means no television, no iPad, no iPhone, no videos, no technology.
Observe Your Thoughts
Be a deliberate observer, pay attention to what types of thoughts you are having, when you get good at catching your thoughts, you will learn how to stop your negative thoughts before they get out of control. Some of the reasons why many can’t quiet their minds, it’s because of they're unable to know when thoughts spiral out of control. It takes practice, but when you master it, you will start feeling better in general.
In summary, overthinking is exhausting and can cause unnecessary anxiety in your life. Discover how quieting your mind will allow you to flow freely during the day making you a happier person. Contact me today for a transformational mindset conversation. Have a great week.
