Build anchors for a healthy mind

What are the things you practice regularly to support your mind?

Do you have non-negotiable anchors in your day that allow you to be at your best?

Consider the activities that are of the most importance to keep you mentally healthy. These could be meditating, a workout, eating healthy or reading a book – identify the activities that form a part of a daily ritual, the things that anchor your day and make sure you can be at your best.

Begin with looking at the 2 or 3 activities that provide the biggest impact to how you feel everyday and make sure you set these as your key anchors that must be fulfilled to ensure you feel mentally and physically on point.

Everyone has their own demons

Dealing with other people can be a tricky thing. Everyone has their own personality, reactions, likes, dislikes and ways of operating.

A great deal of this is influenced through how we see the world and the challenges we are constantly met with. One thing to remember, is that we all have our own demons and battles to fight everyday and a lot of this happens behind the closed doors of the mind.

Think about this the next time someone is not responding to you in the way you had hoped. You don’t know what battles that person is having to deal with on the inside and the way you react and the words you utter can have a profound affect in how they feel.

Sometimes it’s better to take the high road, use your awareness and try to recognise that the people you interact with all have their own battles going on and their behaviour although not ideal is not something to be met with more hate.
