Destressing Your Mind

Hi Dee Ho...

Destressing the Racing Mind is what I'd like to discuss this day...

How are you doing, my sweet friend?

Ever praying for your strain and stress of this life to be relieved.

As I mentioned a couple posts ago, I am revisiting the items on the stress test in my eBook, How to Destress Via Stress Test & Stress Relief.

The second item happens to be, "Do You Experience a Racing Mind?"

Some people live in a hectic world, and their minds can and will race as fast as that world they live in.

Some people are born with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder), or ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder), which gives way to a noisy mind.

Others may experience Acute Stress and/or PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), which also lends to a nonstop racing mind.

Many people that experience any of those mentioned above may not know and/or may not believe they can consciously quiet their thoughts with practice into permanence. 

Through education, evidence, and experience, my humble opinion is that anyone can and will quiet their racing mind if they practice without giving up and beating themselves up. 

With God, all things are possible.

"But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible." ~Matthew 19:26, New Testament, Holy Bible, KJV

I believe and know that this is so...

If you have a racing mind and want to practice it in a more calm, confident place and space, try this...

Sit up quietly in an uninterrupted environment, and close your eyes. Focus on following your breath in and out, feel your heartbeat, and feel your body relax by allowing gravity to do its job. 

Do this for five minutes first thing in the morning, and consciously feel yourself relax, feel yourself being secure and safe in this present moment.

Then, throughout the day, bring yourself back to that place of a quiet mind and a relaxed body focusing on relaxation, safety, and security.

This exercise can also be done as you lay your head on your pillow at night before you go to sleep. If you have difficulty falling asleep, you may be surprised that the exercise can and will remedy that.

Suppose you have a racing mind and feel out of control with anger, anxiety, depression, irritability, and/or moodiness. In that case, I suggest you begin the practice of quieting your mind with the exercise given above.

This is so good for anyone to practice. This practice allows a person to see he or she can feel calm and confident at any time and anywhere.

Practice this into permanence.

This may not be easy for some people because they may not believe in themselves. But know this!!!

We can choose to use our authority to govern our minds by consciously focusing on what we want. In this case, we want to practice quieting the ever-busy mind.

We can choose to use our power to condition and train ourselves into a more calm, confident connection to God.

I know that we are more guided and inspired by God in the stillness of our minds. 

"Be still, and know that I am God:" ~Psalm 46:10, The Old Testament, Holy Bible, KJV.

That's all I got for now, my dear sweet friend.

God bless you...

Enjoy your day...

Enjoy your weekend...

Take good care...

Speak soon...
