Success Tip #27
Creating Space for Increased Productivity, Energy and Happiness.
Have you ever had the feeling of being overwhelmed, stressed out, frustrated and anxious?
It’s not a pleasant feeling. It actually creates disharmony in our bodies and minds and causes us to lose focus and get stuck in a rut. It can even create illness in our bodies.
So why not eliminate the stress, anxiety, frustration and worry?
A peaceful mind creates power, unleashes creativity and allows us to fulfill our full potential.
So how do we do it.
Here is what I recommend.
We need to create space in our minds, in a sense empty our minds of everything that’s been cluttering up there throughout the day.
We can do this by practicing Meditation, Yoga, even going for a short walk if the weather permits.
Upon waking in the morning our minds will instantly pick up on whatever is going on, its very susceptible to influence.
Ever wonder why people who watch the news first thing in the morning are more stressed and fearful than people who don’t? It’s because they are filling their minds with negativity first thing in the morning, which sets the tone for the rest of the day.
So what we want to do is upon waking in the morning, create some space for yourself and meditate or practice some Yoga. This way you’ll be much more refreshed and energized ready to tackle the day head on.
If you are of the religious type, feel free to practice morning prayer.
Throughout the day, strive for at least once. I say at least once because I know a lot of people reading this probably work all day 9 – 5 or some other crazy schedule. So at least once a day strive to find a quiet spot for 5 – 10 minutes, it could even be in your car and do the same thing, create some space for yourself and clear your mind.
Be mindful of what you surround yourself with before going to bed because your mind will retain whatever it there and sink deeper into your subconscious as you drift off to sleep.
I recommend not watching the news of being around loud noises. This has a tendency to keep our minds and bodies in a state of excitement and anticipation, no wonder so many people toss and turn throughout the night.
Be sure to create some space for yourself before going to bed and clear your mind of everything that’s happened throughout the day. You deserve a good nights rest.
Once you have cleared your mind it won’t stay that way for long. Your going to have to put something positive there so the negativity doesn’t creep back in.
I recommend reading positive, inspiring and uplifting books.
Listening to inspiring, uplifting audio programs.
Writing positive thoughts and affirmations on paper.
Once we become aware of our thoughts, we become empowered to change our thoughts to create a new reality. Its not going to be easy but once you begin to master it you’ll start experiencing increased productivity, energy and happiness.
