Head chatter …
It’s a problem we all have from time to time … right?
Can’t get to sleep because of it …
Can’t concentrate at work …
Most importantly … it causes you to not be present in your life … would you agree?
I have a very busy head. I am a thinker by nature. I am also an Aries … put the two together, and I really get the head chatter thing.
I have found a way that works for me to give it a voice and release it … for the most part 🙂
What I do every morning as part of my spiritual meditation practice (and sometimes I do it the night before too, especially if I have something big on my mind) is I actually write a list of all of the things that I am thinking about … to get it out of my head.
I have one of those big sticky notes that I put on my desk and I have one beside my bed, as well as notebooks everywhere … so depending on if it is just a few things or a lot, I am ready.
I write down the things that I want to get done … the things I need to get done … and the things that I am thinking about.
I don’t put them in any particular order, but when I read thru them, I do them in the order that I feel the most pulled to. I do the things on my lists based on how they feel to me, if that makes sense. Not how they “should” be done, but how my spirit guides me. So that way I’m listening to my guidance, my intuition and my heart.
I’ve noticed for myself that being overwhelmed is a waste of time. There are always things to do …
And … if we get it out of our head and onto paper then we can move the energy … and quite possibly get a good night’s sleep and/or feel more organized and focused throughout our day.
So you want to get to a place to recognize when you are spinning … when that head chatter is really activated. Don’t sabotage yourself by ignoring it.
When you don’t put it on physical paper, right in front of you, because “You don’t want to see it” … it’s like telling the Universe … I’m just going to spin instead.
The truth is, it is a much kinder choice to yourself and others … to pull it out of that head of yours … then you don’t have to spend all that energy spinning out.
Do you have a practice to get rid of your head chatter? Other than just covering your ears and screaming? Please share below:)
