How many people in the world are, at this very moment, trapped in their own thoughts of their own reality?
Common signs of being trapped in your mind:
• Overthinking everything
• Being emotionally reactive
• Losing track of time
• Constantly analyzing the past or fearing the future
• Poor concentration levels
• Sore muscles
• Sleep problems
Three steps that can help you stop feeling trapped in your mind:
◊ Help to train the mind to focus on the present moment
(i.e. mindfulness, meditation)
◊ Increase the intake of oxygen
(i.e., getting fresh air, practicing deep breathing, exercising, or getting sweaty on my myoga mat); and
◊ Release and clear thoughts
(i.e., daily journaling, talking to a close friend, brain dump).
Some of these are SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN methods for calming and/or rewiring the brain, which might be comforting for you to know.
