We suffer more in our imagination than we do in reality

Ain’t that the truth.

We spend so much of our lives ruminating on past hurts or perceived failures, or worrying about the future.

Our brain literally doesn’t know the difference between reality and imagination.

Try this little exercise right now.

Imagine taking a slice of lemon and biting into it.

What happened in your mouth? Did your saliva increase? Did your cheeks tighten like there was a sour taste there?

Our body actually has physiological reactions to whatever our brain is focusing on.

Do you realise that every time you focus on the trauma of the past you’re creating a huge amount of stress in the body?

You’re also creating stronger neural connections in your brain for that stress and trauma.

Nothing good can come from that.

Isn’t it time to give yourself a fucking break?

Isn’t it time to do things differently?

To start focusing on the present moment and all the things there are to be grateful for?

Because there are SO. MANY. THINGS to be grateful for in every moment.

If you’re struggling to think of things to be grateful for right now and you feel stuck, get in touch with me and let’s get you unstuck.
