Get out of your head and into your journal
Ever get so stuck in your head with all your thoughts swirling round like a whirlpool of overwhelm? Try making this a habit and reap the benefits of a calm mind...
You know the feeling right?
You wake up and immediately your brain goes into overdrive...
You're on the tube and your brain is still swirling...
You get into bed at night and oh what's this...even more thoughts are making their way into your brain space.
Ever feel like your head might just go 'pop!' one day because there's no room left?!
We get you and we understand the feeling.
Something that has been instrumental in clearing space in our heads, that doesn't require a lot of effort or time and that allows you to actually get some sleep around here...is journaling.
This one little thing can make ALL the difference.
If you're someone who is constantly stuck living inside their head, thoughts racing around a track in your mind like they're practicing for the Olympic gold medal, then journaling may be just the relief you've been searching for.
The simple act of getting thoughts out of your head and onto paper can be HUGE. It creates space, eases tension and actually allows you to make sense of everything-even providing you with big 'aha' moments in the process.
It doesn't have to take long either-just a couple of minutes when you wake up, so you can empty your thoughts from the night before and start the day afresh and a couple of minutes before bed to release the thoughts from the day and clear your head for a restful sleep.
The point of journaling is this-it's a self care practice FOR YOU. You don't have to show anyone, or share it on social media even. This is just time and space for you to empty, release and breathe.
Each day, allow yourself this simple but powerful act of getting out of your head and making space for you to feel that inner peace and calm we all want so much.
