Your thoughts are a production of your mind. You are the master of your mind. Yes this is true…but….
Sometimes it feels exhausting to think,
Sometimes I really don’t feel I’m in control of what’s happening up there,
Sometimes (all the time…), I am overthinking.
What is happening? What to do with yourself?
The over of your thinking is when it’s creating tension or tiredness in your body. Simply observe how are you shoulders or your jaw now?
Breathe and relax.
Often, we are simply looping with the same thoughts about a specific situation again and again, or we are projecting our thoughts into an unexpected future situation or overthinking about a past situation; Well, you are not here and now with your thinking and it’s ok. Now, you are observing the fact you are overthinking. that is a good step.
My proposition: Clearing your mind.
Intention : Express how you feel. Whatever is looping or bothering you in your mind, take it out : write, draw, dance, cook, etc. Act it out.
Let it go outside your mind.
Guidance : Do not overthink the overthinking already existing inside yourself. Simply let it out. Do it privately for yourself first then with practice you will clarify in your relationships with others.
Tools needed : what you have available when you need to let it out. A pen and paper to write/draw, your body to move, a song on your phone, your breathe to calm down, etc.
Position: Up to you and the situation.
Timespace: From a few seconds to infinity
Mode of action:
Situation – During your day, at one moment, you observe your thoughts looping, you understand you are overthinking.
Step 1 – Take out your available tools
Step 2 – Express out what’s in your head right now. Don’t think about it, you would create more overthinking on top of the rest, not the goal here. Simply take out what is bothering your peace of mind.
Step 3 – Breathe in and out and observe how you expressed yourself easily.
Step 4 – Well done you observed an uncomfortable situation inside of you and you acted to change it.
Step 5 : Do it everyday.
To go deeper: Keep doing it.
Be creative. Do it for yourself.
