Upcycling thoughts

A friend of mine has a business that grew out of a hobby. She offers ‘upcycled’ and ‘repurposed’ items for sale. Lots of Shabby Chic furniture and items that have been made into something different and lovely.

Sadly, recycling your thoughts is not so good.

Upcycle your thoughts

How many times do you get a thought in your head that seems to be stuck on repeat? Usually a negative thought about an event that caused you stress or distress. Racing thoughts may also be worries about things that have not happened yet. Imaginary conversations on repeat or visualisations of conflict situations perhaps? As Mark Twain said: “I have been through some terrible things in my life, some of which actually happened.”

Thoughts like these drain your energy, play havoc with your sleep and create stress as they have a physical effect. A thought becomes a feeling that becomes an action.

The trick to breaking this pattern is to move your conscious thoughts away from the pattern they are in. When I’m skiing, I totally forget about everything else. It takes so much concentration to be safe. The more complicated or engaging the task, the better. Going for a walk will not be enough but going for a walk with a pair of binoculars and a ‘Guide to the Birds of the UK’ will be as you will be absorbed and engaged.
