The mind is a room within rooms. You should never try to balance the mind. Say what? Yes I just said to leave the mind alone. If you want to maintain your sanity then the aspects of your mind can only be treated as you would muddy water. The more you mess with it the worse it gets. So you have to leave the water alone, let the sediments settle until it becomes clear. Same with the mind, you have to learn to leave it alone, an endless sense of strategizing, scheming, and self centeredness. Where has this taken you? Haven't you experienced it? The stress, anxiety, the muddled thoughts? Haven't you suffered enough? I know I have!
So how to leave the mind alone. Well the first thing you can do is to manage your Automatic, Negative, Thoughts (ANTS). Your subconscious is always listening in. Notice the words of the songs you listen to, who do you keep around you, what are they saying? What is the television telling you about yourself? Do you see your worth? Immediately, like right after reading these words, I beg you to include things into your life that will foster overall health and wellbeing for your mind. I post a poem, art and “balanced perspective” videos on my instagram each day. If you don’t yet have a source for inspiration and positivity please visit my page for some free “inspiration to action”.
