Meditation and mindfulness is a quick way to overcome mental blocks

If being active and keeping the brain “on” isn’t a good fit for you, then you may like mindfulness or meditation to actively turn your brain “off”.

Now, this doesn’t mean you do nothing. Instead, you spend your mental energy doing two things:

  1. Staying as still as possible
  2. Acknowledging a thought then letting it go

Mindfulness or meditation can be very difficult if you’re not used to it, so you may want to try a YouTube video guided meditation before doing it yourself.

This method may not produce huge results the first time you do it, but it can act as a preventative measure over time. A consistent practice of meditation strengthens your ability to acknowledge then let go of thoughts, hopefully stopping future mental blocks before they happen.

Overcome a mental block and take back control

When you’ve got a mental block, it can feel like you’re not in control. You know you need to work, but you can’t. That can lead to a lot of fear and doubt about your entrepreneurial venture, but you can absolutely overcome fear and doubt. It might also be an indication that you need proper rest if you are to be successful long term, so don’t miss out on that opportunity to avoid burnout.
