Do you ever feel like you just can’t get out of your own head?
Ruminating over the past?
Things you’ve said and done, replaying repeatedly.
Worrying about the future?
Thinking about all the things that could go wrong.
Powerless over the present?
Unable to resist your impulses.
Each and every thought pulling you this way and that.
Unable to control your thoughts?
Such patterns can be frustrating and defeating.
You’re not doomed to feeling this way forever.
Your mind can serve you.
A tool for reflection and solving problems.
Moving you toward your best life.
Or it can hold you back.
A tool for reactivity and impulse.
Stuck in a cycle of depression, rumination, and anxiety.
Learn to use your mind or it will continue to use you.
Start with a mindfulness practice like meditation.
Even two minutes a day can help tremendously.
The key is consistency.
Showing up, day after day.
Even for those two minutes.
If you think you need professional help, seek it out.
There’s no shame in that.
But consider what you can do first.
The basics that give you the best chance possible.
You’re worth that chance.
You’ve got this.
