“No problem can withstand the assault of sustained thinking.”
Do you get caught on the vicious wheel of “over thinking” to the point of exhaustion and find yourself even more confused and muddled than before? While introspection is healthy, rumination to the extreme is frustrating and pointless.
The next time you are faced with a crisis or impending decision, put your mind on the back burner. A fun exercise to help give your mind a rest:
1. Visualize recurring thoughts written on beautiful clouds in the sky.
2. Allow yourself the opportunity to read them, feel them, and analyze them for a few minutes.
3. As the clouds fade away, so must your thoughts for now.
4. Rest assured you can always go back to the thoughts but for today that cloud has passed.
Deep down, we all know the right answers thanks to something we all possess called intuition. A wise friend once said, “We ask other people’s opinions to validate what we already know.”
Today, stop thinking. Relax. Listen to your heart. Listen to your intuition. Live your life.
Wishes to you for a happy day!
