- How does childhood trauma affect your mindset?
- The benefit of consistent meditation practice.
Impact Of Childhood Trauma
Certain situations that you face in childhood can trigger your decision-making. People often underestimate how major this issue can be. The cause can be as simple as plucking a flower or seeing a tree being cut down. Later in life, it affects how you respond to certain situations. What’s stopping you every time when you try to do something new, like being in a relationship or anything else. These can be the causes of childhood trauma.
Here are some ways to overcome childhood trauma:
- Through meditation, you will connect with your subconscious mind. This process will not give you straight answers, but eventually, you will wake up one day and have the solution. It can be different for everybody.
- Be patient in a flight or fight situation. Cut down on things that distract you.
- Surround yourself with good things, and be grateful every day.
Consistent Meditation Practice
The initial stage of meditation can be easy but being consistent is the key to achieving mindfulness. When you begin your day, instead of using your phone, pray, lay down, and observe your consciousness. Think about what you want and how it can be achieved. Meditate at least for 20 minutes every day and keep yourself calm and relaxed.
Kindness, empathy, forgiveness, compassion, and gratitude are key elements; practice them daily. Be grateful and add forgiveness to your life, as you might run into issues where you might lose your temper.
