How an empty mind brings lifelong benefits
My Mentor, Allen Pathmarajah , has always said to me that you need to clear your mind to learn new things … he likens your mind to a glass – as you fill it with water , the glass fills and then overflows – To put more water in the glass – you need to empty it.
This is what Anthony Chiminello has to say in his article
Your mind is like a factory that constantly processes thoughts, theories, past regrets and fears of what might happen in the future.
“Silencing your mind is like rejuvenating the body which cries out for a moment of peace and harmony”
Constantly filling your mind is not a formula for creating a meaningful life or business success in the 21st century. If you are suffering from Information overload, lack of concentration and the ability to achieve then stop, reflect and take a mind break. Research proves that overloading the mind can lead to chronic stress which is the foundation of many serious health problems in the body.
There are numerous ways of emptying or training the mind to detach from busy thoughts and experience greater freedom. Here a just three ways to give your mind a break.
- : A simple and practical way is to periodically pause for a minute and take a step back to simply breath. Removing yourself from everything going on in your world has amazing benefits.
- Unplug from technology and experience nature including a beach, park or simply get lost in a natural environment.
- Writing is a personal exercise to understand & release stress. Buy a journal, write down problems, possible causes to your problems & ways to defuse them.
