MENTAL HYGIENE: In simple, everyday-life terms, Mental Hygiene means & include the measures taken to promote & preserve Mental Health. In a person's life, There are three channels for purification :
Bathing purifies the body
Serving others purifies the heart
Meditation and mindfulness purify the Mind.
Thus purification of Mind is the foremost measure to cure Mental illness caused by unbeneficial seeds of toxic germs or viruses like -fear, sorrow, desires, anger, greed, fascination, jealousy, despair, trauma, tension & stress, and all the negative thoughts & emotions. It is well said that if our Mind becomes sick, the body also becomes ill. That is why the word "disease" means Dis-Ease.
As you may already know, "Quality of Mind is Quality of life." It helps to connect to your hearts and improve the coherence between the mind-heart connection. When that happens, you become an observer of crisis and more emotionally balanced. You become connected to your inner voice and your authentic desires. You start living mindfully toward your diet, habits, relationships, and life style in general. All that together will help you to make better decisions in life that allow you to thrive. Ultimately you notice changes in your behaviors and more optimistic and more motivated. You will see you attract new people(higher energy frequency) who are in the same coherence level as you are, not the one who is lower in their mental energy frequency.
“You are the master of your destiny. You can influence, direct and control your own environment. You can make your life what you want it to be.”
How can you start harmonizing your Mind-Body-Energy?
Start with practices like Meditation, Yoga, Pranayamas. Spend some time with self every day in silence, breathe, meditate, make peace with yourself, embrace the moment to moment while trying to have a minimum or single thought in Mind, bring good relaxation to Mind & body.
The breath is the bond between our body and Mind and brings our swinging Mind to the present state from the past or future. Pranayama & meditation brings equality in body, Mind, and soul. It is also a time for connecting to our deeper inner-self, which is the real source of Joy.
Learn techniques that help you to forgive the past old resentments and help to heal your old wound. Sometimes you may think you absolved the person or situation, but in reality, you have not. One of the most effective ways is hypnosis. According to Dr. Bruce Lipton- PhD is an internationally recognized leader in bridging science and spirit - "Since subconscious programs operate without the necessity of observation or control by the conscious Mind, we are completely unaware that our subconscious minds are making our everyday decisions….the profoundly important fact is that disempowering programs in the subconscious Mind can be quickly rewritten. Using techniques such as hypnotherapy, affirmations, body-centered therapies, and a large number of new modalities collectively referred to as "energy psychology".
Don't allow the seeds of unbeneficial, toxic emotions to manifest. In our consciousness's depth are seeds of love, compassion, joy, peace, gratitude, forgiveness- all beneficial to us. Send invitation & welcome the sources of healthy emotions to manifest by thinking of it like a friend you haven't seen for a while. Their presence in your living room brings a lot of joy and will dissipate the darkness and sorrow.
“If you can't do great things, do small things in a great way.”

With a little gain, this Mind jumps to happiness, and a little loss makes the person off the hook. Keep the Mind under control like a ringmaster of a circus. It is much more tricky to manage the Mind than to control the wind. At the start of any vocation, watch out that the more the passion & enthusiasm in the Mind, the more will be the perfection in the effort, otherwise the result will be undesirable or poor. When we control, then the Mind is our fantastic friend but becomes as our great enemy when we are controlled by the Mind. We should prioritize our journey towards inner peace by fostering emotional & mental well-being. When we were born, we took the first breath and when we die, we will take the last breath. What happens between these two breaths is called life.
