My mind seems to work with so much data it is juggling and so fast sometimes that it can get overloaded and come to a grinding, screeching halt. A standstill. Where all is quiet because it is just overloaded. Almost like when you flood your car or motorcycle or overheat the engine.
These are times of real challenges because it is often times when I need my brain’s clarity the most. When I have so much to do or deadlines to meet and I can’t seem to reach up and grab that sting hanging that seems to anchor me and balance my mind.
So what do I do to get it unstuck? Remember the Milk? I start there.
Seriously, there are days (i.e. like today) where doing anything seems painful and as if there is a big pile, just stuck. So again I start with Remember the Milk. And if that doesn’t work and I can not get past my block, I try some more things, like:
- Take a nap
- Go for a run
- Play a game of solitaire
- Talk to a friend
- Do something fun
- Take a walk
- Take a bath
What about you all? If you have a huge boulder sitting in between you and your goals — how do you move it? I’ll mention one more thing that has worked miracles for me — getting a life coach (but more on that later).
I would love to hear some suggestions!
