When we’re not actively engaged in a task, our minds wander. Beyond everyday thoughts like grocery lists and daily plans, where does your mind go? What do you spend time thinking about?
Do you envision yourself meeting a goal? Do you rehash losses? Do you spend time worrying?
We all worry, of course. It’s part of being human. But sometimes the worries or losses in our lives can consume our thoughts. Writing down worries can help us examine them from a new perspective, firing up the problem-solving part of our brains. I’ve found that journaling about my worries and losses helps me solve or move past them. And when I can close the book on them for a bit, I free up more of my thinking time to focus on the blessings in my life and the person I want to become.
