When our days are already packed with so much to do, it seems like by the time the day is through, all you have time for is to crawl into bed and watch some television. But by giving yourself ten minutes a day, twice a day, you can change your mindset and add balance to your life.
How to do it? There are a number of ways.
- Meditation is one, and can be quick and easy. Meditation is the art of emptying your mind of all external stressors and being present in the moment. You can accomplish this with music, coloring, or any activity that requires you to be focused on the present.
- Say a few affirmations. Do you struggle with self-confidence? Choose affirmations that focus on the things you like about yourself, such as, "I am smart and funny" or "I am just as the universe made me. My flaws are what make me unique." It may sound hokey, but by repeating the same things regularly, you are literally reprogramming your brain to change the way its wired.
- Put yourself in a positive mindset from the start and realize that no one can ruin it unless you allow them to.
You have the power to obtain balance in your life. You have the power to change your outlook. The only way others can affect you is if you give them the power to do so.
Take ten minutes to recharge. Those ten minutes can change your life.
