Are you a hamster?

Are you a hamster?
Get your brain off its hamster wheel!

When your mind starts ruminating, or you start having obsessive thoughts, or are feeling anxious, try to picture your mind on a hamster wheel and yank it off!  Catch yourself and then immediately replace your thoughts with this silly song and laugh at yourself.  Its a fantastic way to change your thought pattern!  If the hamster dance isn’t your thing, we have other tactics below…

Simple steps to get your brain off its hamster wheel:

Yoga is an excellent method to connect with the breath and the body thereby calming the mind.  It’s like setting your mind on cruise control.  With practice, you will be able to dull the senses so that the mind can rest as you enter a state of meditation.  Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it for at least a month!  Meditation help here.

Mindfulness: catch yourself thinking those repetitive noisy and/or negative thoughts, and think about what you could replace them with… your cells are listening!  Could it be a positive quote, a mantra, a chant, an affirming song?  Whatever it is, make sure it’s overwriting the negativity!

A product we swear by, is a naturally occurring compound in Green Tea minus the caffeine.  The compound is L-Theanine and it’s beyond awesome!  It’s like drinking a glass of wine without the alcohol.  Start with 100mg and you can go up to 200mg if you need more.  It restores calmness and focus. Get it here.

Bruce Lipton, PhD., examines this in great detail but sums it up here:

“The moment your change your perception is the moment you rewrite the chemistry of your body.”

Your gut also plays a major role in your mental health because your gut is literally your second brain.  Eat healthy snacks. We also have gut balancing supplements here:

Also, consider the teachings of the great T. Krishnamacharya:
Inhale, and God approaches you. Hold the inhalation, and God remains with you. Exhale, and you approach God. Hold the exhalation, and surrender to God. - Tirumalai Krishnamacharya
