You probably know by now that i’m an advocate for mindset. I am fascinated by it, and it’s one of the reasons I started this blog.
I just think that mindset plays an important role in staying mentally healthy.
It took me years and baby steps to be at the space where I am now in my mind, and even when I believe that I’ve come a long way from where I’ve been (really mentally unhealthy), I know that it’s not the end all be all.
It is a process. There is always something new to learn, always something to help improve us, be it a new scientific discovery or simply having more experiences as we grow up and understand things more. Mental health, though I’m sure isn’t new to us humans, has only been brought to the spotlight (thanks to social media) in our generation – and there’s still so much to know about it.
Having said that, there is a tool designed to help us be more mentally healthy. I came across it before but it’s not only until recently that I gave it more attention, and that is subconscious reprogramming via audio.
Do you know that that 95% of our mental framework is subconscious (more on the subconscious at a later post), and only 5% is conscious? And since our subconscious mind runs on autopilot, reprogramming our subconscious mind will affect our life drastically. And yes, you read the title right: we can reprogram our subconscious mind.
The same reason subliminal messages in TV and ads make us buy something, subliminal audio can help us reframe the subconscious. There are quite a bit of resources out there, and one that I like to use is Youtube. There are many Youtube channels who offer sound recordings that you can just listen to while you sleep, and since the conscious mind can’t process them, the messages go straight to your subconscious. There are a variety of topics to choose to listen to as well, such as motivation, success, and quitting bad habits.
Like most things worthwhile, reprogramming your subconscious mind doesn’t happen overnight. Remember, it took me years and I still have a long way to go, and am still in the process of going. But like investments, subtle shifts compounded over time lead to big results.
One day, you’ll notice that there’s something different in the way you think. Your mood is lighter. You focus more of the good things. You feel better. You realize that you’re happier, and of course, mentally healthier.
