Does anyone else have a million thoughts running through their head when they shower?
All of a sudden it’s as if I’m not even in the shower anymore. I’m thinking about wanting to buy a different kind of soap. And then I’m singing along with the music I’m playing and probably thinking about how ridiculous the lyrics are. Within another minute or so I’ve already planned half of my week, decided what I’m going to eat, and drafted five emails in my mind.
This used to stress me out. Big time. I’d feel exhausted after one simple activity because of the overwhelming number of thoughts passing through my mind, and how I was interpreting them. I wasn’t fully present in what I was doing, and I wasn’t allowing myself to relax and let go of the outcome of situations that hadn’t even happened yet.
