How great would it be if we could have a little holiday from our thoughts? Or there was a little off switch, so that every now and then the thoughts would stop flooding in and there were just a few moments of complete calm.

My mind is wide awake most of the time, from what I’m aware. Even when I’m sleeping my dreams are so vivid and full of messages, I feel like my brain never takes a break. I can’t even relax when I’m taking a bath, because I’m thinking about something that needs to be done, or my tiny little worries surface just in time to interrupt my down time.

I’ve never really been able to truly relax. It’s not all bad though, my over active mind keeps me creative. A lot of thoughts I can jot down and they can be used for stories, or future plans. Life is going in a pretty good direction at the minute, so my worries have lessened and there is far more room for good thoughts.

It really would be nice to get a little break once in a while though. Having an over active mind means it’s difficult for me to keep concentration, this can lead me to being forgetful and ultimately that can make me unreliable, a trait I could really do without. It’s another thing on the list of self improvement and I hope to get better over time. I find routine is helping a little to keep my mind from going on a tangent.

Unfortunately for me, it is not just a case of lighting a few candles and setting the scene so I can unwind. I would love to hear what you do to relax and if you have any methods to empty your mind of a thousand thoughts a minute.

I’m now halfway through the 28 Day Challenge, most people have finished today, as they started at the beginning of February, but I am happy I started when I did and I look forward to completing this and seeing where it takes me next.

Until next time, stay awesome!

-Sara
