Clearing my mind

Sometimes when I struggle to clear my mind, I write. So today I am sharing this post with you as a means to clear my foggy thoughts.
I’ve always found that writing helps me slow down my thought process and improves the way I structure information in my mind.

Studies have shown that writing can be therapeutic because it helps you to release your emotions, be more expressive and helps you to understand them

When I'm angry or sad I find that processing those feelings via my writing helps a lot..

I like blogging because it helps me express my painful feelings in a medium that I can access and reflect on from anywhere.

I also write in a private journal. A lot of the time I write in my journal and then reflect on some of what's in my journal on my website.

If you’re feeling like you're unable to express these emotions and need some help getting started, try asking these three questions:

  • How do I feel?
  • What am I doing?
  • What am I trying to change about my life?

Prompting you to think forward about your future can help the mind process the situation and how you can deal with it.

My experience with writing down what I plan on changing empowers me to feel ultimate responsibility to change your life.

So what I been writing down in my journal recently?

  • Focusing on my improving my eating habits and consuming more healthy food.
  • Dealing with my dental problems and finally conquering my fears and contacting a dentist about getting finding a solution.
  • Getting in touch with builders who offer affordable packages in the area I'd like to (eventually) move to.

The change from feeling helpless to understanding that you hold the cards for creating a great life is very empowering. 

I would encourage anyone to reflect this way themselves. It can push you to take responsibility for your life and shape where it’s headed.

People deal too much with the negative, with what is wrong. Why not try and see positive things, to just touch those things and make them bloom?

They're still there, but instead of shouting for your attention, they're laying more softly beneath the surface. By increasing brain space, this makes experiences more delightful and leisurely.
