A healthy mind is just as important as a healthy body! Just like your body needs to be looked after by eating healthy food and exercising, your mind needs be looked after by keeping it free from negativity, overworking and anxiety. Here are some of my tips on how to say goodbye to negative energy, and Hello to a happier YOU.
Clear Your Mind
1. Get in touch with your inner self
Spend 5 minutes at the start of your day sitting and doing nothing. Absolutely nothing but listening to the sound of your own breath. During this this time set a goal of how you want to feel for the rest of the day. Relaxed? Happy? Strong? Whatever it is, keep it simple and clear.
2. Technology detox
Make the effort to spend nine hours each week away from your phone, computer or iPad. Don’t touch it, play with it or use it, unless your phone rings. You will be amazed at how much more alert you become and how clear your mind will feel.
3. Be Grateful
What are you grateful for? If you find yourself creeping into negative thoughts during the day, take a step back and practice gratitude. Each time you do this, you are building mental resilience.
Choose an activity that helps you slow down and be calm. Yoga or walking outside is perfect for this. It helps you stay alert, calm and grounded.
5. Read Positive & Inspiring Quotes
During a mind detox, read books or quotes which are motivating, positive and inspirational. This will help keep your mind at peace and is a better alternative to switching on the TV and watching that mindlessly.
