We all know that the easiest way to clean up the world is to start where you stand.
But sometimes it seems the closer to home something is, the harder it is to control. It’s easy to see clearly how someone else should live, but self-control is difficult and confusing, and all too often we end up saying or doing things we later regret.
Fortunately, self-control and self-mastery can be practiced and perfected. Here are a few tips to help you gain power within yourself.
- Meditate daily. Take 5-10 minutes each day to sit quietly, close your eyes, and breathe. Take this time to check in with yourself and see how you feel, and develop a connected relationship with yourself.
- Make sound dietary choices. Sometimes the only thing we seem to have control over is what we eat, so choose what you eat wisely. Maybe it’s time to cut back on sugar. Maybe you would benefit from eating more vegetables. Determine your personal ideal diet, and practice it for a week.
- When you give yourself plenty of rest and time to sleep, you make better choices. You have more energy for the things you want to do, and that makes you a master of your own destiny.
You don’t have to take on all of these tips right away to start living more powerfully today. Try just one, and see how it feels…After all, it’s YOUR life. YOU get to choose how you live it.
