We all have days where the Negative Nancy/Ned in our head spirals out of control.
We all have good and bad days – that’s part of life.
Have you ever noticed how people who constantly complain have more bad stuff happening?
At least, they think they do – a lot of it is all about their perception of life.
There are definitely times where my head gets the better of me, same as anyone.
And I can definitely have a good rant every now and again – they can be good for the soul but you have to choose wisely who you do this with.
The point of it is to have a brain dump rather than keep spiralling down the shitty thought rabbit hole.
I’m well aware of my triggers for this though – lack of sleep and chronic pain in my body are the biggies for me.
My best when I’m feeling good is different from my best when I’ve had a rubbish sleep or when I’m unwell.
Sometimes the best thing to do is take a load off and completely relax.
The thing that makes the most difference whether you feel good or bad is your self-talk.
Right now as I’m writing this blog (which I started 2 weeks ago and haven’t finished as I’ve been in a lot of pain, working long days and sleeping poorly) I’m full of head cold/fluey gunk head.
And now I’m unwell – and literally forced to not do anything.
I had to take Thursday and Friday off work and move my Reiki workshop due to be yesterday, to two weeks time.
I could be telling myself how rubbish I feel and how hard everything is to do, how I have no energy etc; that’s how we feed the monsters in our head.
Or instead I could be grateful that although I’m not well, I get to hang out with my dog all day watching Netflix and relax.
I’m grateful for my dog because if it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t have even left the house I feel that rubbish.
I’m watering the seeds in my head by seeing the positives in the situation I’m in, and keeping things simple for now.
Rest, sleep, nourishment… and about 15 litres of water in the last 3 days.
Do you spend your days feeding the monsters or watering the seeds?
Watch your train of thought today and see whats going on for you.
Can you choose to think better thoughts?
