Being mindful of your thoughts and feelings can be a daunting task. However, understanding that your thoughts, emotions, and actions can culminate in literal manifestations is a powerful reason to pay attention!
Here are 5 simple tips that you can utilize to remain mindful of your thought-processes as you work to draw good things into your life:
Though it may sound silly, going to sleep is the quickest and easiest way to change the energy you are emitting. When we sleep, we halt the momentum of our daily "feelings" buildup. If you're experiencing a lot of negative feelings, calling it an early evening can be helpful; it provides for a fresh start and new perspective in the morning.
Taking a few deep breaths and surrendering to the silence can also help put you in a positive and receptive frame of mind. If you are new to meditating, try one of the free apps available for your smart phone, or find mind-calming exercises in this video:
3. Surround yourself with positive people
You're probably already unconsciously absorbing the energy of those around you without even realizing it. For instance, do you have friends that you love hanging out with, because you always feel energized and uplifted when you are around them? Or conversely, do you notice that after being around certain people, you feel drained and in a bad mood?
If so, you are already unknowingly serving as a conduit for positive and negative energy. Therefore, it's important to make an effort to surround yourself with as many positive people as possible.
4. Eat healthy
It's hard to feel positive about your life when you feel like you've been run over by a freight train. Making small changes to your diet such as cutting out soda, drinking more water, and eating unprocessed, fresh foods can make a real difference in how you feel -- and the energy that you attract. The healthier you are, the better you'll feel and the easier it'll be to focus your thoughts.
5. Keep a journal
Every day, make a list of 10 things that you are thankful for. It takes about a month for your brain to form a new habit, so as you begin to repetitively write out your daily list, your subconscious will begin to train itself to look for the positive in everyday situations.
You can also include anything that triggers or bothers you in your journal. Acknowledging these points will help pinpoint which people and situations are triggering negative thoughts and emotions. While you might not be able to change certain situations right away, you CAN change your attitude and reactions to them.
