5 Ways to Achieve a Mind Over Matter Lifestyle
The proverb "mind over matter" is relevant for mental health, focus, and stress management. Making brain health a big part of your daily routine can make a huge difference in keeping your mind in shape. A healthy brain is the most important part of a thriving lifestyle.
The brain is a wonderful organ that has been known to be more powerful than even a digital computer and even though it can do it all on its own, there’s no reason you can't give it a helping hand.
To visualize your goal is to give your mind and body a way to accomplish the result. Being specific and detailed about that goal tricks the body to respond as if that specific goal has been conquered already, allowing your body to naturally follow through with what your mind has told it.
If you believe in yourself, you are more likely to push yourself to finish these challenges. You need to be your biggest cheerleader, especially if no one else is. Talk yourself through the problem, face it head-on, then congratulate yourself on your most recent accomplishment.
If you're looking for a boost in confidence, tell yourself daily affirmations (even if you don't believe them) - things like "I am amazing" or "I can do anything I set my mind to." Your mind believes what you tell it, so over time you will start to believe the things you say to yourself. This is true whether you tell yourself positive or negative things, so remember to be careful and gentle with how you talk to yourself.
Not being able to move past your failures and hurt is one of the many reasons some people have a hard time practicing mind over matter. They're scared that since things didn't work out before, they are bound to fail again. When you get rid of this pent-up feeling of failure, you are more likely to succeed going forward. It's important to remember that you can't find success without having failed. Failure truly is a learning opportunity.
A habit is a behavior that is repeated time and time again. Both fortunately and unfortunately, developing negative habits is just as easy as developing positive ones.
There's a rule called 21/90. You do something for 21 days and after that, you do it for another 90, and boom, you've formed a new habit. If you're looking to break bad habits, try replacing them with good ones, one at a time, instead of just simply trying to cut them out. You'll gain better habits, and it won't feel like you're simply stopping cold-turkey.
When you can focus on your goals, you tend to put all your attention into achieving them. Set your intention for the day. When you wake up, find a spot in your house that brings you comfort and relaxation. Sit down and write a list of what you want to achieve. It could be small, or it could be big. It could be something you're trying to accomplish that day, that week, or that month. Whatever it is, writing it down will help you to visualize it and then do it.
