“There are so many everyday distractions which means it takes a higher sense of awareness of yourself and your surroundings to harness the focus needed to gain control of your own mind. It’s our daily lifestyle choices that can strengthen our place of mental clarity and focus to achieve our ambitions. Through our own behaviour and habits, we can enhance our performance, mood and sense of self. Little changes like our food choices, certain scents, hours of sleep and noting down positive thoughts can have a profound difference on how our minds work. We can all learn to gain control.”
