I don’t know about you, but for me staying in a good headspace is requiring some extra love and care and the payoffs are huge. Here are a few simple go-tos that can create a nice turn-around for your frame of mind.
Get in your Write Mind: Writing for me has always been a vehicle for navigating challenging and uncertain terrain to find truth and figure out who I want to be in the face of my circumstances. Here are 3 simple steps.
- Take out the mental trash daily! Just like you keep your home clean, it’s imperative to keep your headspace clean too. Take 5-10 minutes to empty your thoughts on a page. Start with “Today I’m feeling….” Let all your thoughts fall onto the page. No need to edit. When you’re done – feel free to literally throw it away.
- Next, ask yourself “Who do I want to be in the face of today?” “What do I want to do, experience or feel in this moment?”
- Then, ask – “What can I think, be and do to move in that direction?” Write your way to a new feeling place.
Hike it out: Take a question and hit the trail or path near you. When you finish take a minute to write down what stood out from your walk. What did you see, hear, feel? This week I set out on a hike with a prayer that God give me a message – here’s what I posted just after.
Try a Quick Mood-Changer: Here are some ideas I heard on a webinar this week….
- Play music
- Movement – Move your body (dance, exercise, stretch)
- Pet your dog 🙂 , plant a garden, take photos, play a game, take a bath, etc..
I’d love to hear what’s helping you.
