Motivate the Mind – The Body Will Follow


Every moment is precious.

The last few weeks I’ve been reading a lot about the power of the mind and the need to control one’s thoughts in order to grow mentally and spiritually.

By “control” I mean resisting the urge to let my mind wander to foolish, time-wasting activities that distract me from true growth (Facebook, anyone?)

So…what to do, what to do?

This week I’m eliminating as many irrelevant, trivial distractions and use that gained time to focus on things that matter.

Leo Babauta at Zen Habits recently offered some thoughts on inspiration and becoming a better person that you might enjoy (link below).

Here’s a sample –

“If you take a positive step, like going for a walk, you feel pretty good about it. That gives you the inspiration to eat a healthy meal. Now you’re cranking out emails and important tasks. You’re motivated to take care of yourself and turn your life around, so you start paying attention to sleep. You start flossing. You try some meditation. You feel great!” – Leo Babauta

  1. I totally agree with you and I have read Leo Babauta for more than 2 years now! 🙂 I like his concept of changing our habits incrementally, one by one. He is a great blogger!
