How to control your mind?

power of your brain

There are more and more mental illnesses each year. Due to modern life tempo, many individuals succumb to the pressure that comes with it. Over the past few decades, a lot has been done in the field of mental diseases, though a lot remains unknown. Many brain doctors and scientists compare human brain and nerve connections within to the complexity of the universe.

“You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.”

–Marcus Aurelius

However, over the years there have been many experiments that are now able to support the great power of a positive mindset. Moreover, there are methods available that have been proven to have a positive effect on our brain and mental condition.

We’ve read many books and articles on that topic, and based on our gathered knowledge we’ve prepared some guidelines for you to follow and implement into your everyday life. Some might seem completely obvious, however, many tend to overlook them. We really hope you’ll be able to make the use of them.

Psychological guidelines

1.) Physical health, mind, and emotions are tightly connected; moreover, they affect each other. That’s why we have to make sure to stay in a good mood and obtain a positive state of mind.

2.) Breath.

3.) Include meditation into your life. 10 minutes a day is enough

4.) Relax (soothing drinks; smells – lavender; colors – blue, green; music – instrumental; yoga; visualization of calming situations; focusing on breathing or on details in a room; present – mindfulness; deep your face into a cold water…).

5.) Get rid of the stress.

6.) Control the flow of your thoughts. Stop overthinking!

“All that we are is the result of what we have thought. What we think we become.”

-Buddha

7.) Appreciate yourself, love yourself.

8.) Peace, joy, and love!

9.) Mindfulness! Live in present.

10.) Be grateful for everything positive in your life.

11.) Talk to others about your problems (those you can trust); self-reflection.

14.) Do things that make you happy.

15.) Abandon regret, pain, past resentment, worries about the future, bad thoughts, and negative feelings.

17.) Bad and negative situations are unavoidable, they will happen – make sure to try and change them or find something positive in them.

18.) Do your best to see the best in people, circumstances, and situations.

19.) Believe that everything happens for a reason.

20.) Think happy thoughts, speak good words, do good deeds.
