The power of your thoughts is really strong. And your mind is a powerful thing, so when you start think more happy and positive thoughts things will start to happen. All of us are of course experiencing both good and bad things in life, but it is the way we handle what happens that differs. When bad things happen, we can choose to think about it as being a disaster and letting our negative thoughts take control and make us feel even worse. Or, we can choose to think positive and try to see things differently. And by doing so, we are creating a life of happiness.
For instance, in the ongoing Covid situation we all facing. Yes, it is a terrible virus and the situation is really awful. But, in this situation there are also some positive effects that I see many people experiencing. Like being able to slow down the pace in life, to take the opportunity and invest time into things you like doing, maybe spending a bit more time taking care of your home and your family, enjoying time in your garden if you have one, reading books, maybe reflecting on what you want to do in your life once things get back to “normal” or new normal again. Maybe there is some changes you want to make. This can actually be an opportunity, right?
To help you with this process I really recommend a daily mindfulness meditation, works very well as a part of your yoga session. I usually start with the meditation, before going into other yoga exercises. Also, you can set an intention for the day, use a mantra, or whatever works for you to help you focus on the right things. That what is giving you positive energy and that what is making you feel good.
So, trying to keep your thoughts positive will for sure help you in whatever situation you are in. It is all a matter of choice.
I do wish you the best. Take care. Namaste.
