Just How Powerful Is the Mind?

Your mental state sets the tone for the other areas of your life to follow suit. Protect it with everything.

Tools to use to exercise the mind include generally having a positive outlook in life.

Having a positive outlook in life will always retract you from rumination that doesn’t serve you well. Having a positive outlook in life will let you let go of ugly pasts and rather than worry over the future, plan well for it. It’s all about finding a more efficient way of dealing with negative occurrences, controlling the variables and letting go of the uncontrollable standards.

To strengthen the mind, you need to learn to use it the right way through yoga, meditation and other forms of reflective exercises

What this means is that silence is not a bad omen. Sitting still or lying still from time to time alone to connect with yourself is needful. It helps you pinpoint what your mind needs to thrive better on and what it doesn’t need. And one of the most efficient ways of doing so is through yoga. Meditation encapsulates yoga which is a practice that allows you time to almost-subconsciously but intentionally mentally visualize your thoughts — both the good and bad without fighting back.

To exercise the mind, you need to pay attention to other areas of your life — more like a holistic approach

When you feed well, you think well. When you have lots of sugar, you’re erratic and unable to make good decisions(physical). When you exercise well, you release happy hormones that make you generally happy and think good thoughts (physical/emotional), when you have deep spiritual connection with God, it’s a whole different level of ecstasy and peace of mind that a supreme being got your back(spiritual) and when you spend necessarily lone times and meditate with the respective mantra that works for you, you’re mentally sound for what’s next.
