Sometimes we worry so much about what we put into our bodies through food and drinks and we forget to think if we are feeding our minds a healthy diet as well. This includes things we watch, read, listen to and people we surround ourselves with. The mind diet is crucial to creating a cohesive mind, body and spirit connection.
Mind Diet Essentials
Watch: We are constantly watching TV, Youtube, social media, or just life in general. Watching mindless reality shows and following fake people on social media can take a toll on your self perception and will not help you to reach a more positive mindset. Most of the shows on cable are based around gossip, fights, back stabbing and has been changing the values of most of its viewers. People are taking more pride in being “savage” instead of improving their morals. Try watching shows and movies that make you happy and have a positive message.
Read/ Journal: Books can be a great way to unwind and relax. Whether its the old fashioned book or using E-books can help take you to a different world or feed your mind with endless knowledge. Journaling can also be a great way to clear your mind of any feelings you have been holding in and don’t want to share with anyone else. It can also be a great way to write down your goals or dreams you may want to manifest as well.
Listen: Music and podcasts can be an awesome way to create a positive mindset. Staying clear from listening to degrading music that talk down to people or promote criminal behavior. Listening to music that is uplifting with positive messages are so important to having a great day and mood. I have started listening to podcasts as I do things around my home and subconsciously and consciously listening to them help get a positive and productive message across. Examples like Ted Talks, Highest Self podcast with Sahara Rose, For the love of money with Chris Harder, Etc. Tony Robbins has some powerful messages as well. I listen to his videos while on the treadmill and I find myself more motivated to workout.
People/ Relationships: I am sure we have all had experiences with toxic people and relationships and it can definitely take a toll on our mind set and general well being. Limiting the amount of time that these certain people are in our lives or fully eliminating them completely can help you achieve a better state in your mind diet. The most important relationship is the one we have with ourselves and then everyone else falls into place.
Meditation: Taking the time to sit down and clear all thoughts for at least 5-10 minutes can create a complete change in mood and mindset. Especially in the morning or at night before bed. If you are not the type of person that can’t sit down and clear your mind, there are many other ways to meditate. You can walk outside in nature, draw a warm bath and relax, read a book, grounding, saying positive mantras or affirmations that resonate with you throughout the day. (No one has ever been stressed out after a session of mediation).
We cleanse our homes and our bodies and now it is time to cleanse our minds. Improving your mind diet will help you to become your highest self and allow you to live a life of unlimited abundance.
