Calming stacked rocks and bamboo for mindfulness

Journaling or Brain Downloading

This information can help transform worry and ruminating thoughts into productive thinking. With stress, worry and anxiety, your entire body contracts and tightens up. A root cause of stress is repetitive, anxiety-filled thoughts. When you find yourself thinking in this way, simply decide to schedule a time for brain downloading.

For relationship challenges and emotionally oriented thoughts, writing in a * journal, or writing a letter to a friend helps. The act of writing (or typing) untangles and releases confusing, charged feelings from one’s head and body.

If your worry thoughts are about what to do for your future, making lists and making plans using your calendar works well. So take some time to map out new directions for your career, for creative projects or for leisure travel possibilities

These kinds of writing, in the form of strategic planning, or sorting through one’s issues, are positive, creative acts. After the thoughts and feelings are down on the page, notice your increased energy and relaxation level, as well as how much clearer your head and body feel. Contrast these good feelings to the energy drain and mental clutter you have experienced when all of those jumbled thoughts and worries were just rattling around in your head!
