The Power of Your Mind – No, Really the Power of Your Mind

Focus the Mind

You have a problem. (How do I know this? We All have problems or at least we think we do!!!)

Let’s say your problem is your mood. You want to be happy, but you can’t get out of negative feelings – frustration, anger, sadness, etc. You wonder:

Is it lack of sleep? Bad food? My time of the month? Too much caffeine, right? That comment from my co-worker, spouse, friend, etc.?

No, no, no, no, and no.

These could have been triggers, but it’s not the reason why you’re in a pickle right now.

The reason is the habits of your mind. You can have the best of intentions and desires to change your mood (or attain whatever solution needed for your problem), but until you change your habit of mind, you just won’t get there.

But there is Great News! You can definitely overcome this! How? The power of your mind! Duh!

What to Do When Fear Creeps In On a Good Day

Good things are coming
I just learned this today. See if this rings a bell for you.

Ever have a day when things are suddenly going well in your life? The sun is shining. You’re meeting your goals. No technology road bumps. People are letting you go in traffic. The world is generally shining on you and you are riding that wave!

And then you do that thing.

You suddenly think “This is strange. I wonder when the other shoe will drop? When will stuff start going wrong – like it usually does?”

Guess what that is going to get you? Yup, a shoe dropping out of the sky right on your head – allowing you to say “Ah, there you are. I was expecting you.”

The bottom line is if you look for the shoe, you’re going to find the shoe.

There’s a better way to handle great moments in your life, a way that is much more empowering and which will manifest more of the good stuff that you’re experiencing.

Live in This Moment Right Now

typical holland blurr

If you are human, you likely spend a lot of time worrying about the future. Not necessarily the far future, but the close future.

  • I have so many things to do.
  • How can I get them all done?
  • Will they all get done?

This happens constantly, so much so that you stop noticing it. The problem is this habit robs you. It robs you of energy and it robs you of bliss in this current moment. You’re not alone. This is a human habit.

But you can ease this burden. You can establish new habits that bring more light (and productivity) into your life.

Here’s the cure:

How to Change When Something Big In Your Life Is Not Working

 

How to make big changes

Is there something in your life that is just not working? A relationship, your job, your lifestyle? Maybe your health? You know it when something’s not working. You have a constant uneasiness about it. You know something needs to change, but for some reason you keep avoiding it – staying busy instead.

Perhaps the thought of change makes you uncomfortable. Maybe you know it will be difficult. Maybe you don’t know where to start. And so you find rational excuses like “I don’t have time to change,” “it won’t work,” or just flat out pushing it under the rug in your mind. But that little bugger won’t go away and will keep bothering you like a pebble in your shoe until you address it.

There’s a way to make big changes that won’t totally disrupt your life.

Don’t Just Take a Break – Bust a Move and Build Some Muscle

pushups

If you read a lot of self-improvement blogs like I do then you’ve probably heard of the concept of taking hourly breaks to improve productivity and reduce stress. And if you’re like me, it sounds great in theory, but in reality I don’t really do it. Why? I think maybe it’s because I don’t know what to do during that time. Certainly 5-10 minutes of meditation would be great, but most people’s work is already so cerebral, how about something physical instead? Here’s what I started doing and I love it!

If you or someone you know would like to feel better about their body, please check out my new website called Real Women’s Bodies.

The site’s mission is to help women learn to accept, like, and love their bodies. This is achieved through 2 methods:

  1. Viewing and reading other women’s body stories and images.
  2. Body-image articles that help shift your perspective towards a more powerful and positive view.

I hope that if you have a few moments you’ll check out the site and:

A note about images:

The site is new and just starting out so there are more articles than images.

SO WE NEED YOUR HELP. 🙂

All picture submissions are strictly anonymous. We are looking for a few brave women to help us get the ball rolling with their body stories.  Will you join us? If not, perhaps you could share the link with someone who you know would consider it.

Thank you for helping us spread the message to help women feel better about themselves! You can really make a difference for others and ultimately for yourself!

🙂

Thank you!
