Micro Episode 8 - Exploring Clarity of Mind

Exploring Clarity of Mind

“When we feel anxious or worried about something, it looks like we have to do something about it to change the feeling. Is that true? What is going on there?

Being in a low state often feels like a call to action, but that is the worst thing we can do; taking action and creating goals from a state of anxiety versus allowing our mind to settle to see what is required more clearly.

Timestamps and Takeaways

01:00 When feeling anxious about something, we often think we have to do something to change the feeling. Is that true?

02:00 Trying to change the experience of having an uncomfortable feeling can often compound the issue and worsen it.

02:57 Being compassionate towards yourself and allowing yourself to feel the full spectrum of human emotion is the best gift you can give because it leads to clarity.

03:42 The more you get curious and explore how your mind works and go out there and experiment, so you can see if this is true for yourself.

04:11 When there are storm clouds above you, and it’s pouring down with rain, you are getting zapped by lightning, and it’s a crappy day; you want to give up, close the curtains and go back to sleep, but there is always blue sky and sunshine above those storm clouds, and that’s your clarity, still there when your mind settles.

05:48 If you feel low, the best thing you can do is not change that feeling is reach out to other people to express how you feel.

06:82 Even on the worst days, you can get back to a place of clarity.

07:14 Mira had some profound moments of clarity at the times when she had the most stress in her life.
