The importance of a powerful mind
By now we should all know that having a mind that is capable of thinking analytically and clearly is an important step for achieving any of our goals and desires.
How can you plan something if you can’t think straight? How can you resolve situations if you can’t collect your thoughts? How can you deal with people in the right way to help them and achieve your objectives unless you can remain calm and enthusiastic? The truth is you can’t unless you have a powerful enough mind.
So what constitutes a powerful mind?
A powerful mind is a mind that is in an optimal state, it can be directed and is not easily distracted by external influences or detracting thoughts. Is able to attain and maintain focus on a chosen objective for extended periods of time in order to attain what it is you are aiming for.
These attributes help contribute to a powerful mind.
In order to achieve this there are some very important ingredients…
One of the vital ingredients is Sleep!
Though we all know sleep is essential we don’t actually take it seriously enough, we’re not giving it enough credit. Without sleep our brains would literally not function. Therefore it goes to reason that not enough sleep or low quality sleep will make our brains work as a much lesser rate and lower quality than if we had plenty of good quality sleep.
Some of you are lucky and you get eight or nine hours sleep per night, though that’s not the rule, it’s the exception. And many of you who are blessed to have the time to be able to sleep that long as still waking up tired.
It’s not enough to get all those hours sleep, you need to also get QUALITY sleep, and I’m not just talking about having a comfortable bed! (though that does help).
I’m actually referring to having the right state of mind DURING your sleep, a state that allows deep relaxation and rest. This will allow your physical brain to fully recover from the stress and and exertion of the day.
One of the keys is rest and sleep is not necessarily resting. As you can have restless sleep and you won’t wake up rested.
If you don’t sleep well this should be a high priority as it will have a knock on effect on everything you do! Including having an adverse effect on concentration.
I will soon link an article with different techniques to get a great nights sleep.
