posted in: Affirmations | 0

Each day is full of opportunities for me to learn, and I happily embrace each one.

Learning keeps my brain active, which is a primary goal for me. Part of my approach to the good life involves keeping my mind sharp, so I do so at every opportunity!

I know that my mind is my own responsibility, and I know that I can keep it sharp through thoughtful action. In a sense, my brain is a muscle, so it responds to use. Therefore, I can choose whether to keep it sharp or allow it to go downhill.

I love how well my mind works now and I want that to continue, so I elect to stay mentally active.

Keeping my mind sharp can involve many different activities. I can do brain puzzles. I can enroll in a class on a topic that intrigues me or study on my own. Even engaging in stimulating conversation or balancing my checkbook helps me stay sharp.

I know that regular meditation also helps keep my mind sharp.

Sometimes, I may find myself mentally relaxing. Although rest is important, I value my ability to think clearly and critically when needed, so I am sure to include mental activity in each day. This way, I have my skills polished and ready when I want them.

Today, I am thankful for all that my mind does for me. And I know that staying mentally fit is critical to my ongoing happiness. Therefore, I commit to doing at least one thing today to benefit my mind.
