Three simple steps to stillness
Lately, I've been in my head a lot. This causes rumination, headaches, less motivation. I am one for retrospection, but there's the danger that it then causes you to believe everything you think and pulls you to stay in the past.
I know that I can make my home where my heart is, but feelings still arose from my last move. When you’re too much in your head, the chatter can get too much. It can be agony. So here are three ways on how to get out of your head.
Recite a mantra or verse
"Do not let your heart be troubled and do not be afraid" is a bible verse I put above my mirror when my mum moved in with me a while ago. Repeating this verse and trusting in God to gift me with trust has been useful when I'm too much in my mind. It encourages me to focus on the present moment and engage with my worry as a fleeting feeling rather than who I am.
I like to work with affirmations with my clients and can use them to bring you hope and healing. We all deal with situations differently, so finding words that suit you specifically is best. The second thing to do to get out of your head is:
My dear friend called me in the right moment the other day when I was in my head too much. Just hearing their voice and soothing words allowed me to get out of my mind and come back to the now. We need close people to remind us everything is ok when we don't particularly feel it.
The power of a short phone call can work wonders on your mind and spirit; don't be afraid to pick up the phone and admit to how you feel, then know what is real.
Lastly, how to get out of your head means:
Focusing on your surroundings
Try counting to five then finding comfort in the clock ticking, rain falling, or stillness around you. It may help you stay in the now and become appreciative and aware. Self-awareness can help you in your daily life - here's how. Becoming aware of the here and now nurtures your soul and stills your mind.
So there are three things to do to get out of your head. When you notice your wellness and sanity matter, become more mindful and attentive towards your thoughts.
