If we’re not careful we can easily get caught up in the noise of life.
As women, we tend to let everything else come first. The kids, the schedules, the dog, the meetings, the meals, the lists, the reminders, the chores, the plans, the vacations, the deposits, the bills, the TV shows, the social media feeds throughout the day...
It’s a lot of NOISE.
Whether the noise is loud or quiet, if it is taking up a lot of your headspace it is NOISE.
Noise drains us of our energy. It blurries our focus, our memory and over time causes a lot of stress. We become anxious, worried and always feel like we’re trying to keep up or stay on top of everything.
We need to make a conscious effort to drown out the noise, to give our mind a break and settle on a blank slate. We can do this by doing something that puts us in a calm, meditative state, which is different for everyone.
Here are a few ways you can drown out the noise:
- Walking through nature
- Tai Chi
These are just a few ideas, but anything that helps you clear your head of thoughts and noise will help you become more focused and zen. And the more time you spend in this calm, meditative state, the better you feel.
If noise is the running theme in your everyday life, you can change that.
Turn off the TV. Put down your phone. Step away from the computer.
Tell your family you need some time for you and then really use that time to go inward and focus on your innermost state of mind. It is within this intimate space that we are able to connect with the life source and begin to identify our needs and adjust our perspective.
Our mind encompasses the entire universe therefore, what we focus on ultimately becomes our reality. If all we have in our heads is noise, we can’t possibly attract our innermost desires. When we change our innermost state of mind and adjust our perspective, our entire being changes, which in turn directly impacts the environment and our overall existence. This is critical to our evolution and self-transformation.
Do what works for you.
Drown out the noise and find your zen.
