Guarding our mind against daily attacks

January 12, 2020

We lock the door, take care of passwords and the like, but to what extent are we guarding our mind against daily attacks?

In precise words, these attacks could include:

a) Toxic opinions spouted out by people around us;

b) Negative news stories reported endlessly on television and across social media;

c) Belittling thoughts inside our head, possibly telling us we are not good enough.

In terms of managing our time, guarding our mind against daily attacks coming from distractions, non-strategic activities and unfair requests on our schedule is a crucial task for us to undertake.

And once we have the habit of guarding our mind against daily attacks, our days, at least, take on a shape more aligned to our objectives. Although there will still be moments in which we have no choice but to do this or that for others, in these instances we know they are the exceptions, not the rule.

In all probabilities, you have winning strategies for dealing with these attacks. Accordingly, if you would like to share them, please don’t hesitate to leave a comment below.
