Gifting yourself a treat of calm by resting your mind

Day 18

Word of the day: Rest

“With meditation, you begin to relax in your seat and just watch the movie of life.”

– ken wilber

When you’re tired of the stress at work, give yourself a treat of calm by resting your mind for a while. It’s obvious to feel stressed out. It’s obvious to get devastated after a series of works. That time, all you need is giving your mind a treat of rest.

So, today we will do a tiny exercise on resting the mind for a while to restore the energy. This way, you will feel calm and relaxed. Then, come back to work and start afresh.

Here begins your day of Rest.

The task of the day:

Take a seat at solitude and relax.

Have a deep breath. Then, release a deep breath.

Breathe in and breathe out.

Repeat this for five times. Gently stretch in a way that helps the body and mind release.

Your mind will keep wandering in different thoughts. But your task is to keep your mind vacuum. Try to keep your mind relaxed and calm.

Rest your mind and keep it free of thoughts. As your body, your mind deserves some rest, too!

Quote of the day:

Let yourself rest in the flow of present moment awareness.

– The saffron storyteller

Affirmations of the day:

In the hustle and bustle of life, I forgot to take a breath and relax. Today, I feel calm. A wave of bliss filled my mind when I paused for a while and relaxed my mind. This little escape from the daily rush of life opened a new window for me as I restored energy and returned to work to start afresh. A momentary rest gifted me a chance to rewire the mind. After the process, I feel refreshed as my mind if filled with inner peace.

Write in your journal:

Today you need to write about your thoughts of bliss. As you gifted yourself a handful of peaceful moments, pen down your feelings and emotions. Whatever you felt and discovered, just write it down. It’s all about your experience, write it in your own way.

The last step of this process:

Before you leave the place, assure yourself by saying:

“Today, I found some time from the rush of life to spend some blissful moments with myself. I discovered to quiet my mind in a blissful way. It helps to heal the mind, body, and soul. I embraced peace and calm with all my heart. I will let this state of bliss stay with me for the whole day. I will come back tomorrow with a new purpose and try to learn a new way of living mindfully.

I am here to receive more peace and more calm in my life.”

This is all for today. We will come back here tomorrow once again with a new way of mindful living. Till then, be still, be calm, be mindful.
