Don’t Believe Everything You Think: 5 vital tips to heal your mind and live a happier life
A healthy mindset is everything. The quality of your life is mostly based on the way you see yourself and how you approach life.
And if your life is not in order, that is because your mindset and decisions are not in order as well.
So, a healthy mindset equals a good life.
In this article, we will share 5 vital tips that will help you heal your mind and ultimately lead a happier life to change your mindset so you can take the first steps toward an awesome life filled with passion and happiness.
1. Be an observer of your own mind
Instead of reacting to all your thoughts, simply observe them without any bias. And as soon as a good or a bad thought arises, say “It’s interesting that I just thought of that.”
As an observer who holds no bias of your thoughts, you remain in control by not reacting. Do not identify the waves – instead, be the still and unmoving ocean.
2. Train your brain to think happy thoughts
Training your brain to think in a more positive way, will make you a happier person.
You have likely noticed that some people feel bad about themselves when they are being criticized, while others never seem to really care.
What most people don’t know is that the way you react to criticism is just a habit.
Some people have the habit of taking it personally and feel miserable as a result, while others are habitually indifferent which serves them as a shield and keeps them happy.
3. Find your purpose in life
You need a purpose and this is critical for a well-lived life.
When you have a clear target and purpose, you will be focused on the things that matter after cutting off all the distractions in your life. This will make you much happier and less stressed.
Because what you focus on for an extended period of time becomes your reality, it is crucial to decide the purpose you want to fulfill and direct tour mental energy toward this narrative.
4. Put trust in your heart
If you have some doubts or are feeling uncomfortable, don’t try to fight it, it’s normal.
Whenever you try to do something new in your life, your mind will try to come up with all sorts of different reasons to put you off by over-rationalizing.
In such cases, too much rationalizing will not give you the answers you are looking for. Thus, you must ask only your heart for the right answers.
5. Understand the difference between the Higher Self and the Ego
The Ego is your deeper animal nature. Survival and fear is its mantra. The Ego’s voice is loud and hard to not notice. In contrast, your Higher Self is your creativity, wisdom, and intuition. It’s the Universal creative consciousness being channeled through your mind. It speaks in whispers and is not easy to hear. Listen intently to the Higher Self (and bypass the ego). In turn, this will make your mind healthier and happier.
React less but pay more attention.
