Stop That Racing Mind

Updated: Dec 19, 2018

I woke up this morning with my mind in knots. I alternated between ruminating on past slip-ups and stressing about future events outside of my control. Yuck.

What helped me calm down? Pointing and calling. As I drove to work, I pointed and called out the names of what I saw. Tree. Sign. Car. Person. Dog.

Our minds can't do two things at once, so this new task forced me into the present. My mind cleared. Honestly, I was shocked by the effectiveness.

Next time you are stressed, or even right now, try it. Notice what's around you. Life's better that way.
