Learning To Manage Your Mind
It doesn’t matter which industry you work in. It’s important for everyone to take the time to work on their own self-care.
Last week, I spoke to hundreds of doctors at the Royal College of Physicians about this very topic.
Because everyone, even doctors, needs to spend time practicing self-care and mind management.
Why is it so important?
Well, your brain has approximately 60,000 – 80,000 thoughts a day.
And about sixty percent of those thoughts are negative. Sixty percent!!
It doesn’t take a mathematical genius to realise that’s a lot of negative thoughts for one person to carry around.
And about ninety percent of what we worry about will never actually come to fruition anyway. So, it’s critical to learn how to acknowledge them while understanding they are nothing more than baseless worries.
To do this successfully, though, requires proper mind management.
With millions of people currently on the waitlist to speak to a therapist through the NHS, and with private healthcare not necessarily an option for many, it can easily feel impossible to access support. Especially the support you need to learn how best to manage your mind.
Which is why I’m thrilled that ‘How To Be Your Own Therapist’ has reached so many people!
Having recently achieved translation rights deals in another five-international territories (to include languages such as Chinese and Arabic), my latest book will soon be accessible to even more.
‘How to be Your Owen Therapist’ was written as a way to break the stigma surrounding therapy and provide everyone with a chance to make a difference within their own lives.
A great number of people are struggling, right now. My book isn’t a replacement for therapy, but it does teach you skills you can implement today to help yourself until you are able to speak to a qualified caregiver.
Anything you’re able to achieve today is going to help you in the long run.
