Daily Affirmations: Mind Strength

So here it is, your first affirmation from the authordailymemphis. Don’t you just love this? So you come to this blog, you read it and get affirmations to allow you to think different and have a good day and you remain motivated and positive throughout life. But anyways, the keywords here was affirmation and think. The affirmation I want to give you today is,”I am in control of my mind and everything else around me. Today take charge of the situation. Don’t let it take charge of you. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in what’s going on and forget to find a solution.

I mean come on, nobody is perfect. We all know that our stress levels have been so high before that we forget to even think. Talk about nerve wrecking. But recently after a while, I’ve trained my cognitive to relax once my brain has gone fried. Well, not friend, but having so many thoughts that I cannot adjust to what is in front of me. Recently, I became a Certified Anger Management Specialist. Within this study in my field, Anger has been said to birth from a ton of stress. According to the Anger Management Institute “What’s Good About Anger,” it also has been established that this is at the forefront of a malfunction in your health and thinking strategies. Now, I am a very busy woman, so therefore I need all the room possible to think and be relaxed. So to add to this affirmation here are some great cognitive techniques that one can use for stress reduction.

Stress Reduction Techniques

Ok busy people pay close attention, I’m going to take your mind a roller coaster of relaxation that you have never been. Below is a list of three techniques I will advise you to use to keep track of your busy schedules, and busy day. And here they are, drum roll please…..(excessive drum rolling, lol.)

  • Cue words (allowing yourself cognitive to relax, anytime a negative situation comes into play or you feel overwhelmed remind yourself to calm down and everything will be ok. EX: “I got this, the day is almost over I get to relax let me just finish, relax.”)These are cue phases and cue words. They train your cognitive and it helps!
  • Taking a load off ( now a lot of us don’t realize what a snack and a nap can do for us when it comes to thinking, taking a load off resets your mind, then you can come back to your project later, don’t allow your mind to over bake if you know what I mean.)
  • And lastly, planning (ok this is very cognitive because you are giving your mind a road map, I work with children with intellectual disabilities and when they don’t know what’s going on they go haywire, that is exactly the same with us. An intellectual disability does not make you incapable or not smart, you just learn slower than most. We all operate the same and we need this, put yourself on a productive and original schedule and take control of your brain, it will eliminate all your mental crisis, helping you manage and live a successful and happy life.)

So there you have it, you have your affirmation which is completely a mental note and reminder, as well as cognitive flexibility skills to embark on and take with you. So that’s it today readers. Take heed to your brains and take care of this for it is the most powerful part of our bodies. Signing off with much pleasure and

Late Night Blogger

It is exactly 1:46 a.m. It is very understandable why I blog at night, around this time my mind works wonders. The reason of this blog is to give an ounce of encouraging words to my readers.

I remember wanting to leave my city as soon as I graduated from college. The first thing that spun to my mind was that I was going to pack up and got to Dallas,TX to continue my mental health career. I told everyone, I knew for sure I had it all planned out. Then boom, it was graduation day. I packed my bags and was excited to grace that stage. I thought, ok I’m going to get a job, save my money and move right away. I cared nothing about little ole Memphis,TN it was in my mind just to get out, and this may have made me felt as if I was just as successful as any other person that moved away from home after graduation, yet this was not the case.

As I went through my phone looking for apartments I found my stay in Memphis to be quite more lasting than expected. Nothing change and I then seen myself switching from job to job. This indeed may have made me feel like a failure, but instead of speaking negatively I opened my eyes completely. Maybe, God wants me to stay in Memphis for a reason, maybe just here right now he has a plan for me. Then, I started my development. College students and young millennials, we must understand that whatever we want sometimes is in our city. We will pick up and leave and not even think to fix what’s at home or see the city for what it is.

After staying in Memphis a few more months my plan and ideas got bigger. I wanted to take Memphis by the storm. I wanted to be one of the most known authors, psychology professionals, speakers, bloggers and fashion guru in my city. Something I always wanted to do since I was a kid, all of my loves came back to me. But how just how exactly was I going to do that if I would’ve left my city. Memphis all along, was my foundation. And I made it just that, now (hearts), it’s time to network and make this dream, travel and stay a blast.

Sincerely,

What Men Want

Finally, we are at the first blog of the decade. First and for most Happy New Year my friends. Of course, I would love for you guys to subscribe to my podcast “Talks with Evonne.” If you have never heard my voice and some of you have not, my podcast will give you a sense of “relaxation.” I tended to find myself falling madly in love with my voice after discovering how cultural it was. Lol I guess I could say I started to like myself, yet where were we, why yes explaining what men like. Now, this has been a troubling question indeed for a lot of young gals like myself. But honestly, the matter is not that complicated as we make it. Being a psychology professional I will place here hard cold evidence to support my claims. But we have to be opened minded to the simplicity of what I am about to write. As, a writer, I have been taught and equipped to give you information that you could visualize in your head, so be prepare for something great I must say.

So What Do Men Want?

Lol. No literally lol. The same as them not knowing what we want, we are all going back and forth trying to figure how to to satisfy someone so that we can be with them. Honestly, we are doing it all wrong. If we get so caught up in being the “pick me girl,” we become unattractive.

Yes, the “pick me girl,” do you know who she is. Well, she is the women who tends to every man’s need or man need to make her self more appealing than most women. She will say thing like, “I don’t wear all the make up, it’s not even that serious,” or “yeah I love all football teams who gets their nails done every day, not me.”

If you are one who is doing this, I highly suggest you stop. Downing yourself or other women to make you seem more appealing is not attractive to any human. It’s just makes you seem as if you are the snob of the room. Honestly if you really want to know what men want or vise versa it’s not that. But wait, I was suppose to support my claims with hard cold evidence. Give me a second this may become interesting.

No seriously, what does psychology say men want?

Ok you asked for it, don’t be too ashamed because psychological studies are done based off animal science. That’s ok though I’ll try to give you information that is surely based on the scientific research of humans.

According to Psychology Today, “What Does Psychology Say Men Want,” is easy to come by. We sit and think men want us to be the ideal woman for them, they want us to be this beautiful unicorn that no one has seen, yet in actuality so many women are doing the same thing that we are all starting to look alike, a field full of unicorns. In psychology this is call “peer pressure,” or insecurities or identification issues. Toget what we want we become what we hate. A serious mental defense mechanism.

It is important to understand the likeness in men and women. We feel that we are creature from two different planets but don’t realize we are exactly alike, made in God’s imagine. There’s no difference in feelings unless they have been tampered, but being in my field I see that this can be fixed. As women we tend to push away what men really want. That is being likes and accepted as well as wanting love. Men have been taught to be conformed to this world, growing to learn what is masculine and what is not. How dare society tell them that, but it has not just affected the men, also the women. If we tell men that they cannot be vulnerable how the heck do you expect them to love you. Seriously let that soak in for a minute.

A man wants you to be yourself. To love him and not allow the world to tell you different. I understand that you may now say,” well I do love him but he isn’t showing it back.” Well now it’s time to look at how long you have been there and if you’re just looking at potential. We in this generation try to force relationships, when we need to just allow things to happen. Just be yourself, date and let the right person come to you. That is what men want. But please understand the answers are all in your head.
