By Conquering the mind, you can conquer the world. -Guru Nanak
We’ve all heard the cliche New Years resolutions that get thrown around so casually these days. Plans to lose weight, make extra money, get healthier -we’ve heard them all. It’s very seldom that you hear about people wanting to change their way of thinking, though. After all, it can be one of the hardest things to do and for many, can take an entire lifetime before any real progress is made.
So what do I mean by conquering your mind? I’m talking about conquering those voices in your head that tell you that you aren’t good enough, smart enough, pretty enough. I’m talking about that loud, piercing voice in your head that fills your mind with fear, doubt, negativity, and criticism. All of these thoughts have one common theme…FEAR! Fear of failure, fear of the unknown, fear of rejection, the list goes on and on.
Fear comes disguised as everyday stresses, worry and anxiety and can hinder us from living our lives to to the fullest. Fear can also be the basis to many distressing physical symptoms as well such as digestive issues, racing heart, dizziness, aches & pains.
We must address the bad habits that we’ve picked up throughout the years and begin identifying ways to combat them in order to gain better control of our mind. So, what better time to take these on than in the new year when the slate is wiped clean?
Here are some very simple (and some not so simple) ways to combat fear, negativity, and overall negative energy
These things can be hard to implement at first especially if you have been living the opposite your entire life. But, try to understand that doing so can help you become more positive, happy, healthy, and resilient to stress and FEAR.
I urge you to add this very crucial goal to the rest of your 2017 “new year, new me” list as in doing so you will promote a healthier lifestyle overall because as you know, in order to live a more balanced life, we need to take care of all areas of our lives and that includes mind, body, and spirit.
I wish you all a very happy, healthy, and prosperous new year!
