How To Immediately Renew Your Mind in 10 Ways
Read Your Bible
Ephesians 4:20 - 24: “But that is not the way you learned Christ!— assuming that you have heard about him and were taught in him, as the truth is in Jesus, to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.
2. Pray To God
Your quiet time with God helps you put the focus back on Him. He instructs.

3. Take a Quiet Walk
Enjoying a quiet peaceful walk in nature allows us to see the beauty in God’s creation. Fresh air will always do some good for you.
Journaling helps you to gain some control of your thoughts. It often helps to jot your things down on paper such as your goals or grocery list so you can clearly identify what they are and how to plan or redirect them if needed.
5. Schedule Scripture Reminders
Let’s be honest. We don’t always feel it in our spirit to read the word or open the Bible app. But something you CAN do is schedule scripture reminders ahead of time for whatever hour of the day, so you can always have a scripture to meditate on during the day. All you have do is save your favorite bible scripture to your reminders list and schedule it for a specific time daily!
6. Encourage Yourself
Our negative self talk can be so ingrained in us, that we’re not even aware it’s happening sometimes. If you notice yourself making fun of yourself (albeit jokingly), counter that with a life affirming word.
7. Listen to Uplifting Music
