Nothing is as wonderful and liberating as the ability to set the mind free and knowing that there is no longer any excuses for the mind to become dominated with unhappiness. For this purpose, let’s discover together other, wonderful, habits such as meditation, journaling, gratitude, and de-cluttering. Be surprised. Have a Healthy Life!
Meditation is a practice where an individual uses a technique, such as focusing their mind on a particular object, thought, or activity, to achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm state.
Do you want to try meditation? Great! I have some tips for you:
- set up a fixed time during the day at least to start with
- slow down, be constant and keep on practice
- don’t give up at the first difficulties, accept the distraction
- get some help with a guided meditation
Journaling requires practice and perseverance. It is a vehicle of emotional exploration, a way to channel difficult feelings into healthy and creative outcomes. Writing is a creative form of artistic expression that allows you, the author, to explore your innermost emotions all while painting a colorful masterpiece with words.
Gratitude is being aware of and thankful for the good things that happen in your life and taking the time to express appreciation and return kindness. Being grateful is more than saying thank you. It relates to humility.
Decluttering is remove the superfluous from your life, organizing, and prioritizing in order to achieve clarity and quality time.
