Inspired by Jay Shetty
Take a moment to reflect on your thoughts, feelings, and mental weight. Do you feel heavy and tired? Don’t worry you’re not alone! The media, social, and mainstream are constantly leading our thoughts to a downward spiral of negativity. To top that off, we push ourselves even deeper into it by:
- Comparing ourselves to other people, especially on social media
- Asking ‘if only’ questions.
The good news is that when we identify our mental weight, just like body weight, we can perform specific exercises and start removing the excess baggage!
I recently listened to this amazing podcast episode by Jay Shetty and here are the 4 exercises which I am 100% sure will help you:
