Taking Time to Free Your Mind

Each and every day we find ourselves constantly on the go. This seems to happen from the time our feet hit the ground in the morning until we put them back to bed at night. Today more than ever, life is fast paced. We seem to be everywhere and nowhere all at the same time.

If you’re working then you know the chaos that can quickly ensue at your job. One minute everything will seem calm and normal and then out of nowhere the bottom falls out and you are running around like a chicken with your head cut off. Then it’s home to the family where dinner has to be prepared, the kids need help with their homework, the house needs some work done and then when that is all done, then you can finally go to bed. This could happen at 9 p.m. or 3 a.m. depending on how your day has gone.

This pace can eventually take its toll on you mentally. Do you remember hearing the phrase “a mind is a terrible thing to waste”? Well that has never been truer than it is today. While your hearts keeps your body pumping full of blood, it’s your mind that makes you who you are. If you’re not mentally alert and ready for each and every day then you’re doing an injustice to yourself and to those around you.

So keeping your mind fresh and alert is vital not only to your overall health but to your everyday life. So how can you do this when the day is crazy from start to finish? Try these simple methods:

  • On your lunch break, take a quiet; leisurely walk around the outside of your building or around the parking lot if there isn’t a park or walk way nearby. Don’t talk on your cellphone or worry about all the things you still need to do. Take 15 minutes to just enjoy the moment and relax your mind.
  • When possible, take 5 minutes at your desk to just close your eyes and sit in silence. Just relax your mind and body.
  • Take a relaxing bath to just relax and clear your mind of everything that happened that day. Don’t worry about what you did or didn’t do…just take time to yourself and to free your mind.
  • After a long day of work and family life………take 15 minutes in silence and meditate. This will allow you to clear your mind, relax your body and prepare you for the next day.

Taking time for your self is essential to keep your mind and body as healthy as it can be. By giving yourself just 15 minutes a day, you’re giving your mind the rest it needs outside of sleep so that you can be the best person for yourself and everyone else.
