Calming Your Head Chatter

Does head chatter control your day? Does it gloss you over the present moment going through the motions of your daily to-do’s, tasks and projects? Does your head chatter strip you away from an intimate conversation blocking you of any kind of deeper connection?

It does for me. In fact, sometimes it can be so bad, so far off course, that the head chatter creates stress and anxiety within me.

In reality, all of this (head chatter) stems from an imaginative place. The head chatter is what we create, or imagine, around the source, to be true, that causes the pain.

We take ourselves down unnecessary rabbit hole after rabbit hole.

You can’t control what comes up in your head.

In turn, we end up judging ourselves, harshly, which ultimately transcends into how we act.

All of this stemming from a mysterious fictional void. We take something that’s not real and allow it to make decisions on our behalf; decisions on how we act, how we present ourselves and who we become.

Again, we can’t control what comes up in our head. What we can control is how we handle it.

Become More Present

Do you think about the day ahead, the deadlines, projects, meetings; while driving? Do you worry and stress over an email you sent days ago that didn’t get a response? Do you feel the urge to check your phone while in a middle of a conversation or when spending time with your family?

Distractions are all around us. We fixate on the past and the future at the expense of the present. Tweet this

I would think about why certain things happened. My meandering mind on the past then created scenarios on how to steer the future.

Release Your Inner Ramblings

Writing is a major component of my self growth journey. It’s the foundation of being intentional.

Though, as much as I’d like to, I don’t write every single day. I set out to do so, absolutely, but with the longer summer days and beautiful weather we find ourselves outside longer, playing. Therefore my writing isn’t as consistent.

Lately, however, as I’ve been neglecting it it’s also what I’ve been needing most.
