How is it going? Last week we talked about “noisy electronics,” how essential it is to take a break from using them all day every day. If you apply it in your life, you will find more moments to improve your mental peace gradually. We live in a very accelerated society, and our brain needs a break from time to time. I will explain how to find these moments and get the most out of them. I will also tell how to prevent third parties or situations from stealing this sacred time.
In fact, I have been a little more tired for a few weeks now, and I am listening to my needs, taking it more calmly because sometimes, the body and life ask us to do it. It happens when, for whatever reason, I have meditated less, I have been busier, worked more, or watched TV a little more, especially when there are science, technology, and of course, space documentaries. But come on, that’s the least of it. The important thing is that between work, TV, and life’s demands, it’s easy to forget a little about your mental peace, and yourself. A moment of mental peace, even a moment, already makes a difference.
(By the way, this year has an interesting start… make sure to check the forecast.)
Let’s do a test.
- Sit in a comfortable position and turn off the music if you have any.
- Set a timer for two minutes. Do not use a kitchen timer; they usually have a high pitched tone that can shuttle you. A more gentle sound from your phone, for example, is much better.
- Activate the timer and close your eyes.
- Focus on your breathing, take a deep breath, and slowly, hold the air for a few seconds, without forcing it, and let it go.
- Repeat during these two minutes, until the time is up.
How are you? I am sure you already notice some mental peace. I am sure that you have lowered at least a few pulsations, and you may notice yourself mentally with a little serenity, even if it is subtle. Also, if it’s just a couple of minutes, you can already make a difference mentally. It will make a significant impact on your life since you will notice yourself mentally more agile. You just have to close your eyes and focus on your breathing. Moments of peace, we have them every day. In my Path to Success course, this is essential.
The usual problem.
Again, there is only one culprit who stands. Our block from mental peace. In life, we all have moments of more or less stillness. Waiting in line to check out the grocery store, wait for the rice to cook, the TV commercials, the dog has fallen asleep… We are not continuously active in doing things, are we? I still talked about it last week. What do you usually do in these “dumb moments” or “downtime”? I guess you will take out your cell phone and take a look at the phone (as if you had not done it for hours), or maybe, take the opportunity to send a quick message to your aunt. And you?
Once in a while, you have to restart your phone. Otherwise, it goes slower or even works a little poorly. Unless you have, I suppose, a high-end phone, you’ll find yourself in this situation. We have always made a comparison that says that a computer is a super-brain. If a super-brain has to restart, don’t you think that a normal one needs it too. A brain like yours, mine, or even the one that Einstein had. The brain needs a break from time to time. That is why that exercise that you did for two minutes has brought you peace of mind, because you have reduced (for a few moments) the external stimuli. Your brain is brilliant and knows when to breathe. You need to give it a moment once in a while, that’s it.
Sometimes, cord cuttings bring peace.
For a moment!
If you got a telegram, you had to listen to it right away; then the person left your premises. Today, the message waits on a computer server, and a copy, on your phone and other synchronized devices. It will not be lost, nor does it need immediate attention. Try, at least a couple of times a day, to have a moment not to use your phone. Worth the mental peace you will get. Close your eyes, take a few deep breaths and open them again. You will notice a small mental peace that will bring you serenity. It is effortless, and it is free to do this. You even save on cell phone’s battery while recharging a more significant one, yours.
You see, it costs nothing.
Mental Peace gives us life.
As I explained above, these little moments of peace of mind can bring us many things. Relaxing the mind, helps you solve problems and find solutions to issues that perhaps, you have not even thought consciously. That is why when you relax, you have better ideas than when you try to find one. Sometimes the solution is discovered when you don’t always focus on the problem.
In fact, you can use these moments to learn to silence your mind and get more out of it. In fact, one of life’s challenges is precisely to find these moments, because they are worth it. And you also have “The Mini Meditations” from “The Classics.” One of them, “Absolute Silence,” will help you get to this state quickly for a few minutes. It is a small five-minute meditation with a very fast relaxation, with subliminal silence in the background. Subliminal messages focus on healing. Awesome for mental peace. You can see more here or in the image below:
There are five meditations, each last five minutes, and have different themes. They are very powerful and straightforward to do.
Beware of vampires.
We are still talking about mental peace, but you have to be careful with “vampires.” If you have people around you, that people should respect your moments of silence, and you, theirs. If there is a person who is taking away your constant “me” time, talk to that person. That also applies to people with whom you communicate through electronic devices. It happens to everyone. We don’t realize it and sacrifice good moments for your mental peace. Sometimes it is necessary, but sometimes your two minutes of relaxation matter and you need them. They are great to recharge, feel happier, and have a clearer mind.
That’s all, folks!
The goal was clear, to talk a little bit about mental peace. To help you to try it for a moment (if you haven’t, seriously, do it), and pretty much, that was it. Now you know that even a couple of minutes, you can give your mind a critical break. And if you already have moments of silence, fabulous!
I hope you gradually add more mental peace to your lives! In fact, for next week, I have a shorter but fascinating entry. I am going to give you some tips so you can discover your gifts. I advance one of them: Know how to induce mental peace!. But all this, in one week! I am pretty sure you are going to enjoy the read! See you next Wednesday!
