Are you happy with yourself right now? Do you take good care of your mind and body? It surprises me just how many people take regular exercise and eat healthy foods, yet don’t spend time improving their spirit, or higher self as it’s sometimes called.
Although it is important to take care of your physical body, it is just as important to spend time nurturing your spirit. You can do this by taking regular meditation; during meditation you become closer to your higher self. You will notice, when practising regular meditation, that you feel lighter and more refreshed. The worries and burdens of modern life don’t seem to weigh you down as much. This is because your spirit is light and wants to enjoy happiness and freedom. Your spirit is the part of you that is connected to your higher self. It is the part of you that will leave your body, when it is your time, and return to the spirit world. Your physical body is merely a home for the real you – the spirit inside your physical body.

There has been a lot of research done, over the years, on the mind and how it works, particularly the subconscious mind and the power it has over you. You may not realize this, but your thoughts control your life. Everything you have in your life right now has been brought to you by the power of your thoughts. Unbelievable, but true.
This is why it is so important that you monitor the thoughts you have on a daily basis. If you’re like me, you will probably have all sorts of things going through your mind during a typical day, but be careful of any negative thoughts that cross your mind. It isn’t an accident that optimistic people live longer than pessimists and have happier lives as a result of their positivity. Negative thoughts are powerful; they attract negative circumstances and situations into your life.
Have you ever woken up and nothing seemed to go right: you dropped your toast on the floor; spilled coffee down your new blouse and then your car wouldn’t start. In those types of situations, your negative thoughts lead to more powerful negative outcomes and it’s like a vicious circle. You had one annoying experience and your first thought was probably, ‘it’s going to be one of those days’ or ‘bad things come in threes’ and then you are proven right as the rest of your day brings more of the same ‘unlucky’ scenarios.

A habit is defined as a recurrent, often unconscious pattern of behavior that is acquired through frequent repetition. Habits are those things that are so automatic, we do them without even thinking about it. Whilst some habits are harmless; such as getting up at the same time every day; Having the same food for breakfast; following the exact same route to work without deviating every day. Others, which are detrimental to our well being, are not!
Some of the most common bad habits people struggle with are obvious, such as smoking, drinking too much, or spending too much time on the computer. But there are others, which may appear on the surface, to be a normal part of an individuals character; but are in reality, are just another habit. They were not born with this behaviour, it has developed over time. But has become through constant repetition, an ingrained part of their personality.
