GT: A Piece Of My Mind

14 July 2010

Over-all, I am just an average person with an average brain. There are plenty  of ways to represent this week's theme on Girls Talk. I'll do mine by enumerating several approaches I make to be mentally healthy.

To keep a healthy mind I make it a point that I pull out the good benefits from the things I do daily, situations I deal with and one of a kind individuals I encounter every day.

Keeping a positive disposition in life is my main weapon to fight off stress, frustrations and building insecurities.

On maintaining a healthy mind, I meditate everyday. Every morning I save some quiet time for myself. I close my eyes, I focus and clear my mind for the new things that's about to take place  within another bright day , then I say a thankful prayer.

On being productive, blogging is my #1 motivator. To be able to share my thoughts anytime to people from around the globe makes my brain healthy as ever. 

Reading books is also a plus factor. 

A healthy conversation is a must.

As a couple, my husband and I would indulge ourselves every weekend  to a full body massage.  We believe that relaxing helps a lot. That's when Phone-A-Massage comes in. We get to choose the time and the no. of  continuing hours we want for our massage. If our masseuse is not available, we go to the mall to have our therapy. It's revitalizing I must say. Your 300 bucks is definitely worth it, especially if it's going to be beneficial for both your body and mind.

*If you live around Quezon City, Phone-A-Massage offers Php250 per hour of Swedish massage and I highly recommend Big Apple Express Spa located in Robinsons Galleria. We always go for Balinese Massage (Aromatherapy Massage). Getting pampered doesn't even cost as much.

And dealing with a 5 year old? Conversing with your child and teaching your child are good refreshments. They're one of the things I love as a mother. My mind is relaxing and enjoying at the same time. What harm can an innocent child bring? Yes, sometimes we're exhausted, but the mind is getting entertained  and satisfied by the small accomplishments our child is making.

Don't forget:  A Healthy Body Supports A Healthy Mind (and vice versa)

Girls Rule

sabi nga nila, massage daw is not a luxury, but a necessity... I am so kuripot so it was not an option when we're in Pinas, lalo na ngayon na nasa mahal kameng bansa... but if given the chance, I would want that to include in our budget... thanks for the great post ate ench... so enlightening!

Your mind will always be at work if you have a preschooler in the house. Your son, like my four-year-old, talks and asks questions non-stop, I bet! I'm sure you sometimes run out of answers, too. LOL!
