So often people worry about events going on in the world or in other people’s lives. People waste energy worrying about these things and it affects their health by affecting their mindset. The reality is that you can only control what you think, say, and do. You can not control anyone else–as much as you would like to. Of course I wish that I had a magic wand to make the world work as it should but that is not a realistic wish. ( I also wish that I had a magic wand to make my house clean with one wave!)
The good news is that you have complete control over your own mindset and the actions that you take. You can choose to start the day thinking about the one thing that you would like to accomplish that day—it does not have to be a big accomplishment. You can also think about all of the things that you are grateful for and that are going right in the world. You can sit in peace and let your mind think about the good things in life. Isn’t this better than starting the day by watching the news–being told how awful the world is and what is wrong with the world? Isn’t it better than spending time amongst others who complain about all of the terrible things going on?
Which mindset will give you happiness–one of fear or one of abundance?? When you focus on what everyone else is doing that you don’t like or agree with it brings about fear and anxiety. When you focus on the things that you can control and change it brings you peace and balance. Doesn’t it make sense that taking ownership of what you think, say, and do can result in you feeling happier and more fulfilled?
Addressing your mindset is a part of the optimal wellness picture. Balancing your hormones, eating a whole food diet, drinking plenty of water, getting good sleep, exercising regularly, taking the right supplements, and minimizing toxin exposure are all parts of this picture. So often people forget about the power of the mind and how the mind can affect how you sleep, your hormones, what food and drink you crave, and your motivation to exercise. The mind is a powerful thing–use it to help you!!
