I'm excited for today's topic because I feel this has been a big topic in our world today and that's mental health.
When it comes to the brain or consiousness there is still so much we don't currently understand.
What we do understand is that it is wonderfully complex and powerful.
There is so much we can do to use this complex and powerful machine to our benefit.
But There is also so much we can do to allow it to cause so much trouble and suffering.
So We'll be diving into a lot of topics on our mindset in this podcast as there is literally unlimited things to learn!
A massive issue I see and experience myself is: Lack of Focus or Low Attention Span.
This is massively due to the instant 'microwave' soeciety we live in.
All our communication or information is virtually all Instant.
So whenever we need to be patient or need to be focused, our thoughts tend to wounder.
I wanna share my personal top tips on how to start to overcome this and be so much more focused.
#1 Decrease the amount of random input in your life.
Everything you watch, see and listen to is a seed sown into your life.
If it's not gonna reap you a harvest you want than it's better you don't consume it!
A big tip in this area is in reduce Social media - But something that's helped me is actually to browse slower!
What i mean is: Instead of speeding through things and scrolling fast which is basically training your brain to NOT focus
I like to scroll slower and actually consume the information more deeply and actually engage with it - which trains your brain to focus.
This has been a game changer for me and iv'e felt my focus improve massivly just with this simple tip!
#2 Is meditation - Basically calming yourself and being aware of your thoughts and when random thoughts come in you can constantly pushing them aside and refocusing on your breathe.
this get's easier over time, but in the beginining it really feels like a mental work out!
So many benefits to meditation and being aware! simply good search it and you'll see what i'm talking about!
My Third Tip has been an eye opener for me and thats:
It's easier to fight thoughts with words - than to fight thoughts with your thoughts.
I've tried to overcome negative thinking so many times by trying so hard to think positive and with more faith.
That DEFINITELY works! BUT using your words has been even MORE effective for me.
There is so much power in our words as we are made in the image and likeness of God and he actually created this universe with his WORDS.
We'll talk more about that in another episode forsure.
But whenever you are battleing with your thoughts i encourage you to use your words against them.
Start speaking out loud to them with faith and you'll see you'll have a much easier time overcoming!
Hope that helps and encurages you guys!
In the times we are living in, we can use all the mental strength we can get!
Physical training is super important but don't neglect the importence and taking the time to train our minds!
Love you guys - And i'll see you guys here.. in the next Episode!
Hey Guys, Welcome to the Seek First Podcast!
Hope you guys are doing Amazing!
As you guys may have heard already, I've moved the podcast to a new Platform so we are starting FRESH!
The new Platform I'm using is: https://anchor.fm/danielziedins
If you've been a previous listener - Welcome Back! If you're tuning in for the first time - Welcome!
This is a Podcast Focused on Self-Development or I sometimes like to call it: 'New-Man' Development from a Faith Based Perspective.
What i mean about New Man Development is stated in: 2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. | So we'ere focusing on growing our New Identity!
Each week we'll be diving into topics on growing in our Faith, Health, Mind-Set, Relationships and Character.
How I choose what topic to speak on is really what I feel on my heart that day that I feel could really benefit someone.
I'm always excited myself because I get to learn and grow from the things I share, together with you guys! - Sometime the best way to learn is to teach.
At the start of each episode I like make sure we are fully primed and ready to learn and hear from God.
Priming yourself is simply positioning yourself to be ready to receive or execute physically, mentally & spiritually.
So Let's start by sitting up straight and correcting our posture where ever you are.
Than let's start to crack a bit of a smile on our face to send those happy and joy signals to our brain.
Just stir up the feeling of Gratitude! Think of something you are Grateful for right now!
Take a Deep long breath IN and Let it all out!
Alright. We are Primed & Ready to Grow!
So Let's Jump Right IN!
In this first episode on our new podcast platform I wanna talk about setting a foundation for our lives.
At the time of this Podcast we are currently going through some troubled times with the Covid-19 outbreak.
It is currently shaking the very foundations of a lot of peoples lives - Physically, financially, emotionally, mentally & spiritually!
This is a time where we can clearly see what foundations are Truly solid.
A lot of people in this season have just realized that there Job is not a very solid foundation.
That the economy is not a solid foundation, neither is the govourment or even there health.
Life is Fragile and everything in it is not a good foundation to build your life on!
The only thing that is a solid foundation is our faith in Christ.
Because if everything passes away or life ends... We still go on to live for Eternity!
Jesus has paid the price and defeated spiritual death so that we may freely receive the GIFT of salvation.
This is not something we can ever Earn or ever Deserve!
So no matter what happens, we need to be super grateful and take joy for our salvation.
In this time where many are questioning there life's foundation - It's important for us to Share this GOOD news!
People now and more open than ever.
If God is real... Than all of eternity is at stake for so many lives around us.
We can share this good news in many ways... But the best way is by LOVE.
This is how God choose to show us... By giving us his life for us on the Cross.
We SO much to be grateful for today!
Don't forgot to SEEK FIRST the kingdom and his righteousness and all these things will be added to you!
Have an BLESSED day - Love you guys! & I'll see you here.. In the next episode.
So Excited to start getting ULTRA aware of my thoughts everyday this week along with you guys!
Than.. Replacing them with POWERFUL thoughts!
Hope that encourages you guys today!
