The Art of the Resting Mind

February 21, 2018

You are really good at pushing your body and mind to its limits.

But, how good are you at resting your mind?

And yes, resting your mind means doing so without involving a cell phone.

Sure, your body is relaxing while on your phone, but your mind really isn't.

Electronic devices cause the neurons in your brain to continue to fire.

To rest the mind, you have to decelerate the influx of info that it processes.

Meditating. Praying. Napping. Sitting on a beach. Reading. Hanging out.

Resting the mind is becoming a lost art in our fast-paced world.

Yet, it is vital for good emotional health and sustainable success.

Like any artist, this will both test and reward your patience.
