How To Maintain A Healthy Mind

The human mind is a miracle itself. Don't underestimate it and enhance it with wisdom and knowledge.

How To Maintain A Healthy Mind
Sandy Hounsell

A human being can do immeasurable things in ways that never cease to amaze me. The mind is the most incredible part of the human body. Everything we do is controlled by the mind. It is the most powerful component that runs our world and it has created everything that we have today. So, the next time you underestimate yourself, think about how amazing your mind is and you will never mistrust your capabilities again.

Surely, we cannot function without our minds. Therefore, we are to keep the stress off our minds as much as possible. How long can you hold on to a piece of weight for in one hand without moving your hand? For minutes? For hours? For a day? It does not matter how long you hold on to it for. The point here is that you can’t hold on to it forever because eventually your hand will start to shake and you will let the weight go. Same thing with the stress: The more you hold on to it the more miserable you will feel. We can’t hold on to it forever. The sooner we let go of the stress the more relaxed the mind will be and you will readily move on with life.

Another great feature the mind has is that it leads us to know the truth. The mind is a guide for us and it usually reveals the truth to us, making us aware of what’s going on around us. The mind should not be ignored. Feed it with knowledge and wisdom and if you are a religious person, from any religion, you know better to always ask God to brighten your mind and your soul. Control your thoughts in a way where everything corrupt will seem restored. Don’t let there be a negative thought and when there is a negative thought turn to God and ask him to show you the right way and pray about it because no matter what religion you come from, they all want us to do the right things.

Also, to have a set mind one should avoid contacting with the worldly corruptions. With the media and the internet, it is so easy to engage our minds in dishonored activities. For example, you can watch anything from violence to sexual content on the internet any time of the day. Such views create distractions in the mind, leading it to wanting to engage in such actions. Your mind and your soul deserve to be protected. Don’t let the devil in and avoid watching anything that may have a negative impact on you.

So, when you ever feel lost remember how unique your mind is and keep your mind awake and healthy. Be gentle to your mind and keep away any kind of distractions from it. Have a positive thinking, enjoy life and everything in it. Enhancing your mind with wisdom and good choices will not only decrease the stress but it will also make you realize that you deserve the world and to live this life with a peace of mind.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
