One thing I am working on is trying to quiet all the thoughts in my head so that I can listen to my heart and soul. When I have been able to do this, I feel so much better. I tend to overwhelm myself with so many different thoughts, and it ends up coming out in the form of anger, frustration, and sadness. This doesn’t do me or anyone else around me any good.
Lately, I’ve struggled with really bad migraines due to the stress of everything going on in my life. So recently my boyfriend got me a neck hammock which stretches the neck. I’ve been taking 15 minutes every day to lay down, turn on some relaxing music, and just stretch my neck. That’s 15 minutes a day that I’ve given myself to chill, and I do believe this is helping me learn how to calm my mind and reconnect with my body. I’ve also tried a technique called Tapping, and even some other calming techniques. I am desperate to learn how to just calm my mind and body so that I can allow my soul to be happy and at peace.
I loved this quote because it represents what I am working on right now in my life. I want to be able to calm my mind when it is angry, sad, and frustrated before I react. I want to learn how to allow my body to relax and not take on so much stress. It’s just not worth it. The hardest part for me is letting go. Letting go of control and learning to trust the process and other people. So, when it all comes down to it, I think much of my sadness and anger that builds up is a way of trying to protect myself and the ones I love, but it just ends up all messy in the end. I can protect myself and the ones I love by just accepting what is and learning to take better care of myself.
Thank you for listening, and I’d love to hear about what you have tried to help calm your mind and get more in touch with your body.
