Living Life

Sound Mind

We are living in uncertain times, and we find ourselves constantly having to adapt and adjust the way we’ve been doing things. This can cause us to experience anxiety, worry and stress, that can be the cause of our unusual reactions. Often, we have knee jerk reactions and find ourselves in a ridiculously silly and unreasonable state of mind. There are ways to reduce these feelings and increase our tolerance to uncertainty. Reducing the effects of stress is important for a sound mind and for our overall health and well-being. Practicing mindfulness will help us relax the body and mind and will also help reduce stress and help to focus on sensing and feeling in the moment, without judgment.

For the sake of simplicity avoid absurdity concentrate on lucidity

Prevent assumption and interpretation focus on comprehension

Embrace a sound mind and hold on to balance and intelligence

Always Hope for Positive Change

You may have heard the childhood phrase, “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never harm me.”So, in other words a physical attack may hurt but you’ll not be hurt by cruel words or name-calling. I recall uttering this phrase as a child to make others believe that I did not care about the name calling but I do recall that the words and name-calling did hurt. For me, a sensitive person, words do especially hurt. Over the years I’ve learned to manage my sensitivity or maybe I should say, I’m constantly learning to manage my sensitivity by making it more of a strength and less of a challenge in life. I do have those days where I overthink things, but I’ve become much more aware when doing so. I know that I feel things deeply, whether those things are positive or negative. I’m a work in progress J I constantly work on shifting my mindset to a more positive one. I often remind myself, instead of trying to change people or situations that I have no control over, I concentrate on my response, my reaction.

Change course to wipe away negativity, see the opportunity as you turn it into positivity!

In Christianity Easter is meant to be a symbol of hope, renewal, and new life.

Happy and blessed Easter to you all.
