CHENNAI:One of the most dreadful disease of 21st century is ‘overthinking’. All of us have this bad habit of thinking too much about others, what they did, what they should do, what they should have done, why they said this or that etc… All these what’s and why’s rob the mind of its peace, thereby making our lives miserable. So how does one puts brake on the mind?
We are constantly being pulled outward by others, by their words, by their opinions and by circumstances, due to which an imbalance is caused within us thereby creating emotional, mental and physical disorder. Hence, the easiest way to avoid this kind of imbalance is ‘putting a brake on the tongue first’. Our mind and tongue are closely connected for what is in my mind is automatically expressed through the tongue in the form of words, positive or negative.
If my words are incorrect or inappropriate they create negative feelings and reactions in others and in turn the the response of others create further retort from within. This ping-pong game of words and emotions occurs daily and is very draining for majority of us. So if we wish to stop this daily drainage of energy, we must apply the ‘check and change’ method. To ‘check’ means to put a brake and to ‘change’ means letting the energy of my mind flow in to a constructive direction.Let’s make mind our best friend and begin the day with these thoughts: ‘I am a peaceful person, and peace is my original quality.’ Remain energetic, creative and productive.
