A Fit Mind
We talk non- stop about body fitness; but what about Mind Fitness? What if one of the major factors to greater overall health, well being and happiness is right between your ears?
It is said “you get what you think about most of the time.” But do we understand the true Power of the Mind? Often times when working with clients I am the observer of repetitive negative speech patterns that are a result of the beliefs a client has. These beliefs simply are thoughts held for a long, long time.
Creating a “fit mind” becomes the result of “fit” thinking. We recognize that our thoughts are measurable units of energy that allow us to transmit outward (project) and to receive (allow) what we are thinking about most of the time!
Look at your body NOW, what do you notice? Look at your home, relationships and work. What do you notice? We are becoming the witness to our thoughts. We are willing to “see” the correlation between what we think and what we have co-created.
So what creates a Fit Mind? What we will discuss here is the importance of cultivating a meditation/breath work practice.
I call it a “Simple Practice”. It consists of three components:
Awareness to breath,
The Grace of Gratitude,
And proper hydration
These three things will be your foundation toward creating better thoughts and a fit mind. Your brain will thank you!
The Power of meditation is a known fact. It is the “cardio” for the brain and it effects beneficially all the processes within the body and contributes to well being and peace of mind. This is called the “relaxation response.”
Most of us are moving thru life in what is called “the stress response.” Often we do not realize that within us there is an alarm blaring 24/7 and the result of this alarm is the excessive release of cortisol. It becomes a vicious cycle of stress, cortisol release, alarm and more stress! This is directly linked to excessive weight gain and a major factor to failing health.
My call to action for you today is to begin your Simple Practice! And it goes like this:
FIRST: Breath. Simple right? You already are breathing, hopefully, and you only have to become aware of your breath. Expanding the belly with the inhale, engage the Powerful Pelvic Point, and bring awareness within. Be the witness to your breath.
SECOND: Be Grateful- begin to mantra “thank you, thank you thank you…” over and over and over; we recognize the vibration of gratitude immediately makes us feel better and is the quickest way to happiness- be thank full it makes your tank full.
THIRD: Drink a large glass of water: (1Liter per 50 lbs of body weight per day is suggested) Water begins to cleanse and purify the residue left behind by the negative thoughts.
Repeat this simple practice 3x a day and HOLD your attention within for 90 seconds. Notice how you feel at this moment where life is happening, the NOW.
Your brain waves will slow down because of the meditative process, causing the brain to move to alpha waves which brings about immediate relaxation. You will sleep better and you will begin to feel more positive and connected.
As your thoughts improve in quality so will your brain chemistry causing “Fit Mind!”
Enjoy the benefits!
