The power of the mind is not only about the brain - it’s really about one's whole life! Mind power is not the kind of power that will let you float or move things just by looking at them. Simply put, mind power is the combination of one’s attention, thoughts, way of thinking, and mental images. Thoughts are transformed as energy so when you think about positive thoughts, it will stimulate your body to be energized and healthy, too.
Having good mind power will help one attain good decision-making skills, be more resilient, and be open to failures and success at the same time, which is a healthier way to face life. It will also drive one to acquire more valuable knowledge, that can lead your life down a better, healthier path and not be easily influenced by others and society.
Mind power and success: How mind exercises contribute
A healthy mind and body can derive success. It’s easy to stay physically healthy and active but for the mind, many are still reluctant as to how to enhance it since adults are already preoccupied with work, familial responsibilities, and other factors.
An article posted by The Guardian talked about the need for mind exercises not only to help people avoid memory loss but to also improve their quality of life. In a study done by researchers at UCLA, it has proven that after two weeks of constant brain enhancement activities and workouts, participants improved their efficiency, and regain a good memory.
