This morning I was anxious.
It began in the train. Instead of getting to sit down and enjoy the ride I ended up standing in a weird corner with the book in my bag jabbing me in my back. The anxiety was like a weird uncomfortable presence I couldn’t shake off. Not even leg day at the gym could get rid of it which made me concerned. Normally when going to the gym I feel pumped like a hero and ready for whatever. Not today.
It was time for the last exercise. I didn’t want to leave the gym with this weird feeling hanging over me though. So in the 2 mins between each set I pulled out my phone and wrote about the things that were bugging me- shining a light on the creepy spiders that were crawling in the back of my mind.
Want to know something? The 4-6 minutes I spent writing things down was equivalent to having a 30 minute shower. I instantly felt better, in control and on top my mental game again. To celebrate I did some hanging crunches which felt pretty cool.
- Do you have any thoughts that are cycling through your mind that are taking away your peace?
- Try writing them down to get them out of your head. Writing them down will help you process on move beyond.
To your success.
