I have a complex mind. I’ve always felt it made me different and weird all throughout childhood and my teenage years. I would wonder why I had different thoughts than others and what that meant about me as a person. Was there something wrong? I’ve always felt like it’s neurons constantly firing and constantly making connections; making connections to the point of my brain being a huge clusterf-ck.
It’s taken me the last few years to get to where I am, but I know there’s so much more growth for me still.
My personal mantra is: complex mind, simple life.
I have to purposefully create a juxtaposition in my life so that it balances out who I am naturally. That means meditation morning and night, waking up at 5am to do yoga and stretch, eating a little less and faster at lunch to squeeze in a long walk during my lunch hour, and letting go of things I cannot control. It’s being more mindful; it’s living in the present and enjoying the moment. It sounds so easy, but I’ve found it’s one of the most challenging things I’ve ever encountered –– mostly because every day presents itself with a different challenge based on the incidents of that day!
How do you keep your mind clear?
