Today, I would like to talk about expressing your thoughts for stress management. Most likely, you feel busy. And I going to assume that living an on the go life is more accepted than slowing down to allow self-reflection in your world, but by not allowing yourself space and time to listen to your thoughts, it can be easy to wait until you fall asleep to process your thoughts - which can make it hard to go asleep and stay asleep. To improve your sleep, which is super important for so many reasons, I highly recommend you create a time and place to process your thoughts before you go asleep. You can do this by writing or expressing your thoughts to someone who knows how to listen - this person could be a therapist or really thoughtful and mindful friend.
For example today, I went to a class on vlogging (blogging for videos) like a boss with Amy Schmittauer from www.vloglikeaboss.com. I had time to speak with Amy who really listened to me. From this conversation, I realized the obstacle for me that I was trying to solve was actually the way I was thinking about it. By Amy holding space and allowing myself to express these thoughts, I was able to resolve my issue and reduce my stress stress levels.
If you have more questions, I offer private sessions in San Francisco and online. For a free consultation, please email me. In May, I plan to offer an integrative group programming (movement, meditation, and holistic nutrition). Click here for more information.
