This may not pertain to bodybuilding, but we all know that we go through mind games on a day-to-day basis. The mind games can consist of confusion, mental anguish, and analysis paralysis. It is completely normal to go through this because we are usually thinking from a sense of comfort.
When you get up in the morning you have two options, either look forward to the day ahead or resent getting up.
Most would rather lay in bed because it is the easier and comfortable thing to do. We as humans crave comfort because it allows us to stay stagnant. Our emotions are energy in motion. Therefore when you are laying down or sitting in place you are more in-apt to be stuck or not wanting to get up.
We’ve all been there. Tossing side to side, snoozing the alarm, and wishing that we could go back to sleep instead of get up for work, school, or a morning obligation. Then The thought that enters our head is there anyway to skip it or do it later or not do it at all.
Think about how much time we spend every day contemplating decisions that could take a second or two. This time and energy could be used wisely towards a task that could push you further along to your hopes and dreams
We all only have so much energy, be sure to use it diligently!
Here’s a few tricks to get yourself out of the mind game.
Complete one of two things: write out what is going on in your brain and break down the options to solve what you’re currently experiencing. The other option is get up and go for a walk. Get up, get moving and this could change the outcome of your mindset.
Another thing that has been helping me is talking out my problems with my friends. Sometimes they’re not even serious problems, However what helps me is speaking out loud what is going on in my head. Another way you could do this is by talking to yourself about what’s going on.
Are you unhappy with your job? With your body? With your relationship? Or even maybe all those are great and you don’t have any issues with those areas of your life.
Let’s say you only want to change how you feel on a day-to-day basis. In order to change how you feel it is necessary to raise your vibration.
When you raise your vibration it forces you to feel a sense of relief and overall better than where you were prior to meditating.
Mind games likely take place at least once or twice for everyone on a daily recurrence. There is also levels of extensiveness with how serious the games in the brain could be. Sometimes your thoughts can spiral out of control and can cause much more harm than good.
If and when you remind yourself that the mind plays games on you, it provides a feeling of relief. When we feel confused about our own thought process it is disheartening because subliminally we feel like we’re constantly in control of our mind.
Mind games could be triggered from subconscious feelings and thoughts.
For example if you’re constantly thinking about some thing, you are thinking of the lack of it.
Before getting under the bench with your max weight on there is a little voice in your head that tells you you could fail. Silence your inner voice and take action based upon what you know deep in your heart you need to be doing. The mind can be like a maze. And a maze can be daunting without a map of direction
Create your map with pen and paper of exactly what your brain is going through.
The amount you write does not determine the way you feel following this exercise. Right from your heart and right exactly what you need in order for things to make more sense and to have clarity.
Clarity is crucial for optimal brain performance.
It’s the little things you do everyday that make you great over a period of time.
