Have you ever felt really tired and worn out? Like you didn’t have the energy or mood to get up and do anything at all? If you’ve felt this way before, perhaps it’s one of those occasions when the demands of student life have gotten the better of you. But if this happens, please don’t feel bad. Rest assured it happens to the best of us and the good news is there are steps you can take to get your mind and body back on track.
What you need during these tough times is “healing,” to be exact, physical and spiritual healing, which you can achieve with the Law of Attraction.
How does it work? Well, think of it this way. How you feel, be in on the inside (spiritual) or outside (physical), is very often a direct reflection of what’s going on deep in your mind. So you could say that your mind may be the root of the issues you might be experiencing, such as a lack of energy and focus, or moodiness and irritability.
So by gaining better control of your thoughts, you can attract wellbeing and resolve the health issues you’ve been facing. The power to feel better, stronger, healthier and be more active and focused is within YOU. And here’s how YOU can tap into the incredible power of your own mind and thoughts to heal yourself from the inside out:
Pump up the affirmations
To get your mind and body on the right track, you can start by using positive affirmations. To do this, take some time out of your day to talk to yourself. Clear your mind and say to yourself words like: “I love my body and I take good care of it;” or “I am healthy, energetic and focused,” and, “My body is healing itself naturally.” You can come up with your own affirmations and repeat them to yourself regularly.
Boost with deep breathing
You breathe to stay alive, but did you know that breathing can also be an emotional release to ease stress and heal? Done correctly, deep breathing therapy can help you to relax and boost your natural immune system, which triggers self healing. All you need to do is to slowly take a deep breath, hold it for a few seconds and exhale slowly. Repeat this breathing pattern for 10 to 15 minutes. Try to do this at least once a day, preferably at the same time and in a quiet spot, to reap the most benefits.
Power up visualisations
Once you’re comfortable with deep breathing, you can practice visualisations. To visualise, you only need to imagine something in your mind, in great detail. So to self heal, for example, you can imagine yourself in a peaceful place. You are lying down comfortably and a bright light appears above your head. As it moves down towards your feet, you can feel its gentle warmth pushing all the negative feelings and pain out of your body. If you like, imagine the light passing over you several times. At the end of the visualisation, you should feel refreshed. Practice these visualisations regularly.
Let go of the negatives
Each day, you carry around emotional garbage, like anger, jealousy and hate. But unlike normal garbage, which you get rid of regularly, you tend to hold onto emotional garbage. The build up of these negative thoughts cause your body to release stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol, which can disrupt your natural immune system. Therefore, it’s crucial to let go of the negatives. You can do this by being more forgiving, focusing on the good things in life, being thankful and looking for silver linings in every negative thing that comes your way.
To further develop your positive mindset, it’s best to work with a coach. In order to help students understand how their minds can influence the way they function in daily life, we’ve designed the HeadStart programme to help them fully appreciate their own mental strength. Through performance coaching, we help students to manifest healing for themselves through a systematic approach and practice. This equips students with a unique blend of effective tools and techniques that help them to perform at their fullest potential!
