BRA (BELIEVE RETRIEVE ACHIEVE) – The three words that keep me going every day.
Believe in yourself. Focus on the positive you wish to achieve and then achieve it.
Stick to what you want. If you believe in it strong enough then go for it and don’t let others stop you. Tell yourself you can do it and all will be ok. Be strong enough to eliminate the negative out of your mind.
2. Practice Mindfulness
Mindfulness is particularly key to combating stress that is caused through worry.
Particularly when your brain is full of all the bad things that are happening in the World around us it is time to remove yourself from what you can not change. Slow down and focus on the present. Stop your mind from wandering to things that may never happen or things you can not change.
3 small steps to begin mindfulness today…
Sit in a quiet spot and focus on nothing other than your breathing.
Once your mind is clear start becoming aware of the sounds and smells around you.
Simply allow the smells and sounds come and go without forming an attachment but think of how they make you feel.
Giving yourself 10 minutes each day to practice these steps will have a much bigger positive impact on your overall wellbeing than you might ever believe.
Research has shown that the brain alone can influence the health of your overall body. At the end of the day it is the health of our mind that truly is key to the quality of our lives!
The trick is to stop yourself thinking about the bad things that might happen. Focus on the now, stay positive and picture a positive future. Concentrate on things you really can have an impact on and not those that are out of your control.
