Increase Your Mental Power in 4 Easy Steps
The mind is an engine that we need to maintain in the best possible conditions in order for it to function to its maximum mental potential. If our mind is scattered, we forget things, make the wrong decisions, and behave misguidedly…
Energizing our mind can help us be more creative, more lucid, help us solve the challenges we have to face on a daily basis and allow us to focus best on what interests us the most. These are some of the steps that can help you increase your mental power.
1. Change up your routine
If you tend to spend your days in a robotic fashion, it’s likely that your brain isn’t functioning at its full capacity. Stimulating your brain revitalizes your mind, and fills it with energy. Changing your routine is one of the first steps you can take to clarify your mind. Doing the same thing all the time turns you into someone who runs on autopilot, who doesn’t react properly.
There are many ways to change your routine, from choosing a different route in order to get to your everyday activities, to practicing an activity you have never tried before, to meeting new people, to reading a good book, to listening to different music from the type you usually like, to seeing an alternative movie…
2. Fill up on “good vibes”
People transmit their vibes and energy onto other people, whether they are positive or negative. If you tend to find yourself in the company of people with good vibes, your mind will be filled with energy, and you’ll always have a positive mentality. This will help you be more creative, stimulate your mind with long and short term plans. It not only increases your mental energy but also your physical energy. Ultimately, all of these benefits will translate to healthier habits.
3. Be thankful for all the good that life gives you
Unless you are the one exception on the face of the Earth, you will always have various reasons to be thankful for all of the good that life has to offer you. Being grateful implies producing positive mental energy. Producing this positive mental energy gives you more confidence, and this confidence will make you radiate security in every aspect in your life.
Being grateful lets you attribute the correct value to your qualities, your abilities, to the people around you, to your relationships. A good exercise is to write at least five reasons why you should be grateful. The very fact that you’re alive is already motive enough to be grateful, don’t you think?
4. Get organized
Thinking about many things at once scatters your mind and keeps you from concentrating on concrete objectives. A good way of getting organized is to plan ahead. If you elaborate a list of what you plan to do, it will be easier for you to decide in what order you wish to perform your duties.
Delegating tasks is also a great help. Remember that you can’t carry the world on your shoulders all by yourself. There are always tasks that others can perform for you. When you get rid of mental clutter, you leave your mind free to focus on those things that really only you can do.
