The Power of the Mind

Yesterday and today have been very blessed days. First let me begin by saying the mind is the most powerful organ in the body. I believe that if one changes their mindset their life will change (common presumption) but so hard to live by on a day to day basis!

If one truly believes in themselves no matter what it is one can achieve it. Sometimes goals seem unreachable and that may seem like a road block, however keeping the mind focused day by day, hour by hour and sometimes even minute by minute fuels the fire to personal achievement.
Personally, my mind gets distracted continuously. When I stop and think of the big picture, that is my life, I am grateful and blessed for I am able to keep my goals alive.

I would like to share an example. One of my greatest hobbies is health and fitness, perhaps because I feel the urgency to prolong my life and make the best of it as long as I can (my mother passed when I was a child and keeping healthy has been engrained into my psyche). Anyhow, my dedication to health and fitness has brought individuals in my life who ask for my help, tell me I inspire them, ask for advice; and I am not even a professional in the field! Although, I already have my career (communication professor) it baffles me how much positive energy I receive from the health and fitness endeavor. It simply reinforces that if I think positively about my life or certain things no matter what they are, marriage, family, career, travels, hobbies, goals etc I can and will make it happen!

Everyone’s mind works the same way! The power is within the mind!

Today I felt back to “normal” whatever that means… I was able to teach class and then go to the gym, I really needed that release… I felt so much better… It also made me remember the importance of keeping a journal on hand to keep mental notes and write my food logs and workouts down. I drank all my water for the day and remained balanced and mentally present. I was energized and happy without any stimulants (coffee is my habit but I am trying to cut down, I found that if I have my fresh fruits and veggies I don’t even need it). At times I need to remember how important it is to maintain a healthy way of life not only to be fit, but to align all aspects of my life and stay focused.
