Subconscious Mind, do you nurture yours?

Here I am… my very first blog (looks around an empty room). I thought I’d start with something I’ve been working on which is my mind.

Our Minds Can Be A Wilderness, Nurture It!

Sometimes in life, all we have is hope and that’s really all we need, well, at least to start off with. It is important to have something to FOCUS on, to look forward to and to have a passion for in life, otherwise we will walk aimlessly in the wilderness. FOCUS on the word wilderness;- which is a dark, miserable, uncultivated, neglected, abandoned and an unhabitable place. Wow! that doesnt sound nice at all! But guess what, our Minds can be just like that, a neglected wilderness, if we do not nurture it. It’s so easy to just FOCUS on our external selves and neglect our inner self, the ‘engine’ which drives us.

As I am sure you know, a car is nothing without its engine or even if the engine is slightly damaged the external body of the car is no good with a faulty engine no matter how beautiful the external body is. It is so important to FOCUS on our minds, thoughts and views because they will be driving us around each day.

The Surface of Our Minds and The ‘Meh’ Feeling

The thing is, it’s not just the surface of our minds we need to FOCUS on, it is the subconscious mind. The thoughts you think you don’t think but you think subconsciously and if these are subconscious ‘negative’ thoughts, then they will certainly weigh you down.

You know that random feeling of unhappiness but you try to rattle your mind to think of why you are unhappy, dull or that ‘meh” feeling and at times there is simply nothing which stands out to make you feel this way.

Overcome Your Negative Subconscious

Trust me… there are ways to overcome your negative subconscious engine which is driving you each day but you need to FOCUS and stay determined. By doing this you need to start by clearing a bit of your mental wilderness and start gardening at your thoughts each day and weeding the negative thorns.

Our minds are very susceptible to our thoughts and we need to be conscious of this, to navigate it well in order for it to pour out effectively into our day to day lives by our actions and how we mean to go on.

How do you overcome your ‘meh’ feelings and are you even aware of them?

Have you cultivated a wilderness in your mind and are you gardening?

      Hehe..Oh I know that feeling very well.. Maybe swap for a mood boosting food such as some Banana, Oats (maybe have a flapjack at the ready) or almonds are a good stimulant for low or dull mood recovery particularly a banana though as the vitamin b6 regulates a mood boosting hormone called serotonin and that should alleviate some of that ‘Meh’ feeling . Thanks for visiting! More tips coming soon.
