Getting out of your head

What’s it about?:Getting out of your head




Spending too much time in confinement.
Can’t find a way out.


And if you are trapped for too long, it comes at a price.


That price could be…


Poor Health.
Poor decision making.


And where might you be trapped?


In a prison?
In a room?
In a car?


Hopefully not.


In fact, there is one place on this earth you are more likely to be trapped than anywhere else.


In your own head.


You see…


Increasingly busy people around the developed world are becoming trapped inside their own heads.


Can’t switch off.
Thinking about what could have been or what has to be.
Missing the moment and joy of now.


And that’s really sad.


Especially when science clearly shows us that your mid and body are all part of one system.


Your mind influences the health of your body.


Your body influences the health of your mind.


And if you’re trapped in your head, when do you take the time to stop and get into your body?


To listen to what it needs.
To nourish your intuition.
To build up a wealth of good emotions (all emotions are felt and stored in the cells of your body)


Think about it…


Do you ever get back pains after a day of worry?
Do you ever develop headaches after all day meetings with aggressive colleagues?
Do you ever get that cold or flu just 2 days into your holiday after a stressful few months at work?


Thing is…


Your body can’t communicate in words.
Or intellect.
Or concepts.


So if it’s not happy….
If it’s been neglected because you have spent too much time trapped in your head….


It communicates in the only way it can.




It’s as if your body is trying to say to you…
“Hello. Your are neglecting me. Less focus on the head worrying time and more body time please.
You see, if you respect me and the emotions I store in me, I can help you. I can support the mind to think more clearly. I can help you make the right decisions. I can help you sleep well at night. I can provide you with the foundations you need for a healthy life. But I can’t do that if you are trapped up there in your headspace all the time.”


I’m off to remember to get out of my head regularly and respect the direct connection between my mind and body.


How about you?


To your fulfilment.
