Quiet the mind so that you can hear your Soul speak
Peace and quiet is a precious commodity these days, but sometimes we are our own worst enemies. How many times have you gone to bed only to relive your day in your head or make a mental to-do list for tomorrow? Or maybe you have carved out a few minutes to relax and been hijacked by a barrage of thoughts or worries? Finding calm in a world of chaos can be a tall order.
Life throws chaos at us on a regular basis – whether it is our finances, our relationships or our health. In the work world, around 50 percent of people are burned out in industries like health care, banking, and nonprofits and employers spend $300 billion per year on workplace-related stress.
There is another way – a calmer way. Cultivating a more restful, relaxed state of mind doesn’t mean we will drown under all our responsibilities. Instead, research suggests it will bring us greater attention, energy and creativity to tackle them. And science also points to simple ways we can tap into that calm state of mind to be more resilient in our chaotic lives.
Having a mind that is too busy wears down your body, your health and your energy. It also impacts things like your emotional intelligence and your decision making. When you are tightly wound up, you are more likely to react to situations than to respond with reason.
You also perceive the world differently. Having a mind that is racing makes us narrowly focused, preventing us from seeing the bigger picture. When we are calmer, our attention becomes broader. In fact, we literally see more things.
When your mind is quiet, you also manage your energy because you are not burning yourself up constantly, spending your days with your sympathetic nervous system in overdrive. Calm helps you focus on what you need to do and get it done much more quickly.
A quiet mind can also impact your creativity. Research suggests that our most creative ideas come in moments when we are not actively focused or stressed. We are most creative when our brain is in alpha wave mode, which is a relaxed state of mind – like when you are in the shower or taking a walk in nature. Indeed, people who go on an immersive nature retreat for four days come back with 50 percent increased creativity.
If you want to get the most out of yourself in terms of your productivity, creativity and innovation – making progress at work or just solving the basic problems of life that you are faced with – a quiet mind is the key.
How to cultivate a quiet mind
We know how to become stressed. Most of us are really good at activating our adrenal system and getting wound up. The question becomes, then, how do you quiet your mind?
I have written this course specifically to deal with this issue and to show you ways that you can overcome your busy mind.
