Welcome back to another post. I hope you all are still doing well during this time of quarantine and self isolation. Like I’ve said in my recent post, I know that a lot of people have been saying that they’re bored or that they’re getting tired of this entire situation.Don’t get me wrong, I understand, however there are things you can do to keep you busy. Like I have said, I have done Spring cleaning my house, I’ve been reading multiple books, Including the one that I am going to talk about today. So, let’s get to the topic of this post.
Our life is what our thoughts make it.- Marcus Aurelius.
Sometimes all you can do is lie in bed, and hope to fall asleep before you fall apart.
According to the topic, you can see that we’re about to get a little vulnerable today. Let me set the mood: You shower or have taken your warm bubble bath. You lather up in your oils, beginning your nighttime facial routine. You make yourself a cup of hot Chamomile tea with honey and light some candles. The clock then strikes midnight, then Boom! You’re there with your own thoughts and now you’re the most vulnerable you have been that day.
As I said in my last post, you know we all have follow thoughts, from our failed goals to our heartbreaks. Yea I know, it makes you feel terrible. For some reason, many like to be “nonchalant” and seem like they have no types of emotion. Which I don’t understand why. It’s honestly very annoying. I would never date a nonchalant man, but I digress. Back to the topic at hand. Remember those phone conversations with you hight school crush and how when the clock hit a certain hour, things got deep? Its much stronger when you’re not with anyone else. According to vmtherapy we keep ourselves occupied so much during the day, that when we’re actually home at night we turn off our conscious mind which turns on the control of thoughts.
I know personally, that I think about where I am lacking in life. Which is bad I know, but its hard not to. Lately, I have been doing a lot of thinking about EVERYTHING. And yes I know, overthinking can ruin things, however just thinking about life, has help me understand what I really want out of life. I’ve been learning about myself more at night. If I catch myself overthinking, here’s a list of things I do:
These are things that I do to calm my mind:
- Read my bible
- listen to soothing music
- drink some tea
- deep breaths
