Get some calm.

5 Dec

In the busy run-up to Christmas, I just wanted to provide a quick tip to help you get some calm.

I was inspired by my own experience a couple of nights ago when I was trying to get to sleep and my mind was SO active! I wasn’t worrying, I was excited about a new project I’m planning and my mind was whirring.  I often work with clients to help them let go of any worries or anxieties, but I didn’t want to completely let go of my excited thoughts, I just wanted to put them to one side and get some sleep!

So, what did I do?  Well, it sounds simple, but I just imagined that my thoughts were inside a helium balloon.  I allowed that balloon to gently float up to the corner of my room and just sit there, ready for the morning when I wanted them back.  I clearly imagined the colour of the balloon and saw length of ribbon hanging down beneath it, so I could grab it back when I was ready to get excited again.

You may be thinking, ‘surely that couldn’t work, it couldn’t be that easy!’  Well, I tell you, it did work.  My mind slowed down and whenever my thoughts started whirring again, I took myself back to that balloon.  It was a simple way of containing my thinking.  Very soon I was fast asleep and woke up feeling refreshed.

I know we can all have lots on our minds at this time of year, so why not try this simple technique when you need some peace?  Let me know how it works for you.
