There are so many ways to keep your mind sharp
Our mind is the very essence of our being what makes us feel
alive. What are we without our mind? Our perception,
experiences, feelings and the ability to think and act are all
processed by our mind. Doesn’t that require us to keep our mind
healthy at all costs?
A healthy mind one that is not scattered al over the place. It is
not grieving the past nor is it anxious about what might befall in
the future. It is focused and productive and at the peak of its
creativity. It can be all this only when it is free of stress. Stress is
responsible for making a mind dull and for triggering emotional
and physical problems. Have you noticed how easily someone?
can get you to shout and howl when you are already stressed?
A healthy mind keeps you calm and composed even at troubled
times. You are able to enjoy what you are doing now, be it
reading this article, getting a report done on time, or walking your
dog. It strengthens your relationships with people. In fact, your
mind is so powerful that it can also affect your physical and
emotional health. You are more like to fall ill when you are
stressed because your immune system weakens.
I believe that meditation and/or prayer helps eliminates stress-
because you are connecting with your higher power and
understand that you are the only person you control.
Pray/meditate for others but accept and realize that it only about
YOU who you can control. Not your partner, nor your children or
family or any of your friends. That eliminates 90% of stress when
you realize it is only YOU
Be kind to yourself, encourage and empower YOURself
