 Think of your mind as a bowl of water. Now ask yourself, is the bowl steady? Or can you picture water sloshing around?

This Zen visualization is a great exercise for observing inner balance. When we rush too often and talk too much, this equilibrium is disturbed. Fortunately, there are simple ways to steady our minds once again.

1. Meditation

Meditation is an exercise meant to restore balance in all aspects of our lives. Beyond spiritual and physical benefits, meditation can help ease mental stress, promote happiness and improve memory. All you need to nurture cognitive harmony is a clear room and a few moments of silence.

2. Nutrition

We become what we consume. Therefore, it makes a lot of sense to explore the benefits of “brain food” – that is, foods rich in omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin E and other nutrients. You could start with walnuts, oily fish or pumpkin seeds to begin enhancing concentration and focus.

3. Stimulation

Worry is a destructive mental habit that many of us practice. Needless worry saps energy and puts a tremendous amount of stress on the brain. Some ways to settle occasional anxiety and restore mental balance can include creative outlets like music or painting, playing cognitive games like Mahjong and Sudoku, or simply sleeping a bit more each night.

Each experience in our day has the potential to settle or disrupt the peace of our mind. And while we cannot prevent every pebble from falling into the bowl, we can learn to carry it in such a way that balance is easily recovered.
