Do you ever fell like your brain is full?
Please share in this with me and humor me for a minute.
As in your brain is SO full that you can’t think straight or focus? Yes? Yes? Yes?
I think some of it is just that we are women and thinking too much about everything is just what we do. But, I also think there is a bit of overload from society too! Life is coming at us, and coming at us FAST! Too fast for us to even process things sometimes!
If you can relate at all – keep reading and you may hear something that can help your brain space not feel quite as full today!
Society now days is just LOUD!
Lots of things coming at us and lots of ways for us to be contacted:
Just to name a few!!
Hear me out -none of these things are bad, and have actually made certain parts of our life easier!
But – this my friends, is quite the list!!
Think back even 10-15 years ago – we didn’t have most of these things coming at us!
So…I think it is safe to say – we have a lot of distractions coming our way!
What does this all have to do with us as women? What does this have to do with us and finding balance?
So, for me, I have to often take a step back and realize that my brain can get on overload if I am not careful. Just recognizing this small fact helps me tremendously.
I can find myself feeling a bit “off-kilter” and all I have to do is think back to the last 30minutes to an hour and easily find out why. Maybe it was an email that came in that was a bit of an attack, or maybe it was the stress of a few texts that required something of me, or maybe it was a post I saw that made me feel not good enough in comparison with whomever posted it.
Whatever it is…these were all things that I allowed to mess with my emotions. I allowed. An outside source caused internal overload! Been there?
So, this week, today, this hour, I am going to be okay with slowing down, turning a few of these things “off”, taking off notifications, and quieting some of the “loud” coming my way.
It is OKAY to not be available all of the time.
It is actually good to not have our phones with us all the time.
It is OKAY to be still a bit.
It is OKAY to not be “in” everything.
It is OKAY to be see that your brain may be a bit full and that you need to make some adjustments.
For me – if I don’t make these adjustments, I will find that I am not at my best for the people and things in my life that deserve the best of me. My husband, my kids, and certain situations that require a less empty and distracted brain!!
So today, let’s empty out our brains, turn some of the loud off, and be okay with focusing on the things that are most important in your life today!!
Be blessed ladies with more brain space!!
