Loosen Your Mind
Do not take life too seriously; part of enjoying it involves letting go of your ego and rigid mindset and allowing yourself to just be. Loosening your mind will help relieve stress, pressure and pain; it feels good to just let your mind float.
Stress builds up because we are constantly bombarded with external stimuli, chores, problems to solve, relationship issues, etc. And stress slowly breaks us down like ice cracking away from winter salt. Learn to deal with life’s issues by loosening your mind: find a quiet place in nature or at home and just let your mind be; ignore the negativity and enjoy the present moment. Don’t worry so much!
Life is not meant to always be on the go. The more you learn to relax your mind, the easier life will become. No matter how difficult or competitive your job is, if you learn to let your mind float on a daily basis, you will surpass your competition because you will start to think more clearly and make better choices; a clear mind paves the way for easier streams of thought.
Loosening your mind does not mean “you’re slacking or being lazy.” It’s a technique that you can incorporate into your daily routine several times a day, in order to relax and appreciate the present moment, while still remaining motivated and determined to accomplish your goals. Loosening your mind is being smart!
