Take a moment to try this, you’ll be intrigued…
Close your eyes for a minute or so and just listen to whatever sounds are going on around you. Relax all your limbs, and slowly but surely, allow any thoughts that are popping up to completely pass.
Don’t fight them, let them pass.
It’s difficult, but try not to let your mind wander. Try and keep your mind free of any passing thoughts and focus on the state of complete stillness.
Hold this state for as long as you can – or for as long as you’re comfortable with. Slowly open your eyes again and bring yourself back into full awareness.
How was that? Does the world seem a bit different than it did a few moments ago?
One of the things that most people are striving for, whether they realise it or not, is a still mind. The benefits are considerable…
Five benefits of a still mind
- Lessens worry & anxiety
- Helps develop positive social connections
- Improves your mood & emotional intelligence
- Enhances self-esteem & self-acceptance
- Increases optimism, relaxation and awareness
“To the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders.” – Lao Tzu
