Mindfulness Technique 2

 

This mindfulness technique is directed towards those of us that have a busy and hectic lifestyle and often feel overwhelmed, stressed or anxious. It is designed to remove negative energy that manifest into thoughts. These negative thoughts have an adverse affect on the physiological and physiological centers of our being. This energy must be allowed to dissipate like steam from our consciousness if we ever expect to have a good nights sleep and a healthy and productive life. Very often we feel forced to address an issue or rushed into making an final decision, but this is all an illusion. Below is a technique that I and others have found useful in removing negative thoughts from our mind.

It should be noted that the least favorable time to make a decision is when you are tired and/or at bed time. Our minds are exhausted and need to recharge, so below are some simple steps to assist in achieve a peaceful and balance mind …
1. Tell yourself that the thought can wait until tomorrow
2. Write down the thought and then attempt to sleep.
3. Allow the thoughts to roll past your mind’s eye. Allow these thoughts to play like a movie and simply view the screen. View the screen without any
attachment or opinion whatsoever. The last thing we do before bed affects how peacefully we will sleep. Watching mock drama on television, listening to sports debates and viewing the news are very disturbing to the subconscious mind. Instead sit down with a warm cup of tea as you read a book, or listen to calming music. At some point during the evening set aside time to meditate if only for five minutes.
