The Benefits Of Keeping Busy
There are many benefits of keeping busy. Not least is which is that much gets done. Participating in activities that one enjoys, is the best way to spend time. The greatest benefit of all, is it will render quiet to the endless, negative self-talk that inundates throughout the day.
No one is immune to the incessant barrage of chatter we can undermine ourselves with. The best way to silence the saboteur is to keep one's mind focused on other things. That is why creating projects for yourself can do wonders. Nothing beats negativity like an infusion of fun. One cannot remain in opposing mind frames, at the same time. Therefore, concentrating on any enjoyable task at hand will, by its very nature, eliminate most, if not all, of the less than productive mental activity.
Everyone can use this idea to their advantage. Staying positive takes effort. If it were easy to only retain good thoughts, we would all do it. After all, who in their right mind would want to be stuck in the destructive aspects of our lives?
Fortunately, we have a choice, as to what thoughts we think. Being aware is the first step, then picking the best beliefs for ourselves will be next. This can, of course, be extremely arduous. And reverting back to old habits might be the quickest line of defence. Despite the fact, it may be harmful. Too much time on our hands can be very dangerous to counterproductive thinking. It is at these times that one is apt to fill their heads full of nonsense. It happens to the best people on the planet.
To keep busy, both mind and body, solves a multitude of challenges. The way one thinks and the actions taken will lead, directly to being saved from the trap of dissension
The value in keeping engaged in pleasant endeavours will only compel optimum satisfaction. The mind can use the rest. No more beating ourselves up. Participating in fun, will create the right mindset and that will benefit all.
