Do you want to get out of your head and live more in the moment?
Maybe doing so feels impossible at times. Believe me; you are not alone! It’s very human to ruminate over negative thoughts, future worries, or past mistakes that you wish you could change. Many of us get consumed in these types of internal experiences, leading to feelings of anxiety, stress, depression, and low self-esteem. This likely pulls you away from being able to enjoy or relax in the present moment, only causing further frustration.
Furthermore, it’s not uncommon to get attached to rigid ideas, norms, beliefs, or definitions of ourselves and our lives. For example, you might think “I’m just a person who’s always (insert adjective),” “I’ve never been good at (you name it),” or “If I don’t accomplish (insert goal), I’m a failure.” Remaining attached to these kinds of self-limiting beliefs can become a self-fulfilling prophecy, preventing you from realizing your full potential as a student, athlete, or educator.
