How to Overcome Stress and Anxiety Naturally

Two Doves

There is no denying that stress and anxiety are part of everyday life. Due to lifestyle changes and numerous challenges that people go through on a daily basis, these two mental health problems have become common.

However, excessive stress and anxiety can become dangerous health problems if not dealt with early. Besides weakening our immune systems and making us prone to illnesses, they can also make a person become unproductive in life. While there are several medications that can be used to manage stress and anxiety, there are many proven and natural methods of relieving these conditions.

One of the best natural methods of overcoming stress and anxiety is through meditation. Meditation is the practice of emptying the thoughts in the mind. This helps to clear your mind for a couple of minutes and achieve a state of inner calm. However, in order to achieve better results, you need a quiet, clean and peaceful room with a natural setting.

Developing a positive mindset is another outstanding way of overcoming stress and anxiety the natural way. A positive mindset is considered as the practice of developing positive thoughts. Creating a positive mindset involves changing your perception of a negative situation by repeating affirmations, positive notes, prayer or visualization. To develop a positive mindset you should place positive notes in places where you can see them frequently.

Do You Play the Blame Game in Life?

The Blame Game

Do You Play the Blame Game in Life?

Does everyone around you make your life a living nightmare? Do you hate your job, dislike your marriage, and have more debt than you ever wanted? Life is so unfair sometimes, isn’t it?

…Or is it really life?

If you’re the type of person who often thinks about how bad of a life you have, and the hits just keep coming, it’s likely you play the blame game. The blame game is when you blame everything and everyone around you for what is wrong with your life.

Of course, you can have a million reasons for believing it’s everyone and everything around you that makes life so difficult, but the reason your life is difficult ultimately falls on you. I know it’s not easy to swallow, but bear with me.

Think about your life. YOUR life right now depends on what everyone and everything does to it. You are a victim.

You are continuously hit, and while you believe that you are trying to avoid the abuse, you’re just not able to get away from it. You continue to feel the pain everyone and everything inflicts on you.

A New Book, How to Focus Your Mind

focus-your-mind-3dI am happy to announce that I have finished writing my new book, “How to Focus Your Mind”, and it is now available from this website.

Concentration has always been one of my favorite topics. My interest in this subject began many years ago. I read every book and article I could find, and practiced various exercises for focusing the mind.

I have already written quite a few articles about the power of concentration, so there is no need to repeat what is concentration, and how important it is in all areas of life.

There are so many distractions in everyone’s life that fixing the mind on one thing for more than a few seconds is almost impossible. To be able to focus your mind for long periods, some mental training is required, and this is exactly what the new book, “How to Focus Your Mind” is about. It provides tips, instructions and exercises to develop the power of focus.

I wanted to write a book that would appeal to both beginners and more experienced people, something simple and not complicated.

How to Overcome Self Destructive Behavior

Why do we do things that cause us harm?

We’re pretty rational beings.

We want to be happy and healthy.

We’re wired to live, survive and thrive.

We know better.

Yet we continue to overeat, smoke, drink excessively, shop compulsively and engage in a variety of other activities that are detrimental to our health and wellbeing.

Why?

The answer may surprise you.

The Development of Self Destructive Behavior

Internalization of a Negative Belief

Self destructive behavior typically starts with a negative belief about yourself. You aren’t happy with the way you look. You don’t think you’re intelligent enough. You don’t feel worthy of love.

A New Book About the Power of Concentration

I am happy to announce that I have written a new book, titled, “How to Focus Your Mind”. The book will be published soon, and be available for sale through this website.

The book instructs, advises, and teaches how to strengthen the power of concentration, and contains exercises, and a wealth of useful information and tips.

The mind is a great tool, but it requires discipline. It is in a constant state of movement, just like a butterfly that flies from one flower to another, never standing still for more than a brief moment. If your mind wanders where it wills, and you cannot focus it on what you are doing, how can you complete a task or achieve a goal?

Can you Focus Your Mind?

Can You Focus Your Mind?Hold a pencil in your hand, look at your watch to measure the time, and try to focus your full attention on the pencil. Look at it from all sides, trying to imprint its image on your mind.

The moment you discover that you lost your focus, look at your watch to measure the time.

How long can you focus on the pencil, before your attention or your eyes wander somewhere else? Can you measure the time in minutes, or just in a few seconds?

If you can measure the time in minutes, you are lucky, but if it is only seconds, you need to do something about your focus.

When you write a letter, read a book, or study for an examination, how many times do you stop, and either, think about unrelated subjects, or get up and do something else?

When learning a new skill, working, or doing anything else, do you focus on what you are doing, or does your mind wander to other things?

Are you absent minded in situations that require complete focus of mind?

The Law Of Attraction: Can You Make It Work?

Swan Swimming

On many law of attraction forums and websites you’ll see questions about how to make the law of attraction work.

How can I attract more money?
Can I attract true love?

As a law of attraction coach, I feel a pang of frustration: I want to help all of those people at once because the answer is actually very simple. The problem with the answer is that its very simplicity makes people doubt it.

Before I tell you what that answer is, let us be clear about the nature of the problem. A little insight into human (i.e. your own), psychology can save you a great deal of trouble and soul-searching later on.

We are living in the age of the “quick fix.” As somebody pointed out not so long ago, most of our mothers and grandmothers would spend every Sunday preparing the family dinner. Now we live in a time where we stand in front of the microwave shouting, “Hurry up!”

Underachiever

In 1999, my five-year-old nephew sat in the bleachers with my family members and attended my high-school graduation at a local college stadium. Last night, I attended my now 17-year-old nephew’s graduation at the same location.

I’m 31 now, and watching his graduation experience thirteen years later was surreal. As I’m sitting in the bleachers, I couldn’t help but think back to thirteen years ago when it was me walking the stage to receive my diploma.

I was excited for my nephew, but at the same time I was disappointed. I was disappointed in myself and my lack of success, both professionally and personally. I never knew exactly what I wanted to do when I graduated high school, but I knew I’d eventually figure it out and become successful in whatever it was that I chose to do. I figured I’d have a great job making lots of money, a big house, a nice car, a wife and one or two kids.

The only thing that came to fruition was me owning a car. I have friends whom I grew up with that are in great careers, married with kids, and are also proud homeowners. All of these thoughts of disappointment are going through my head as the PA announcer is saying each kids name.
