Your thoughts can feel nebulous.
Present, but hard to read, feel, understand, etc.
You know your thoughts are there, but maybe at times when people ask you about them, you might not be able to explain them.
It happens to me all the time.
That’s why when I heard this on a podcast, I fell in love with the idea of “ground your thought clouds.”
Maybe you’re feeling overwhelmed, and your thoughts keep coming in, reminding you of all the things you have to do.
So, how do you ground your thoughts?
You write them all down. You fill out a schedule. You visualize what you have to get done now, today, in the week.
Immediately, this act of grounding will bring you relief, and then you will realize that your brain was making things bigger than things were.
It works if you feel overwhelmed in dating, your relationship, school, and all the beliefs you might have about yourself.
Grounding your thought clouds is you taking an honest look at your thoughts, making them real as you write them down, and asking yourself, do I think this is true? Why is this really bothering me?
Not from frustration. Just be curious.
If you fail to condense your thoughts, just like a gas expands in whatever space you give it, your thoughts will expand and dominate and overwhelm you in all kinds of areas of your life.
It’s important to visualize your thoughts, make them solid, and ground them right in front of you.
Sometimes, you may be afraid to confront them.
Trust me. Grounding your thought clouds may be one of the greatest things you can do for yourself.
I speak from experience.
