Switching The Mind Off

Today was a different day, today was a day of switching off all the noise in my head & making some big decisions in my life.

Switching off all this noise today was so peaceful & quiet, my mind is constantly running at 28365 kilometres an hour – so this most certainly benefited me.

The thought of switching off scares me though, I have to be alert & aware at all times.

I packed a bag & set off for the day to La Perouse National Park, (located in Sydney, Australia for those that don’t know where it is), it is amazing there, sat by the cliff side ate my muesli bar & grapes I than set off for a nice long walk, this walk was not only a walk but a walk filled w/ thoughts, decision making etc – best walk of my life.

When I reached my next destination, this was the ‘switching off’ time – I sat & meditated for a while, I let out all the negative thoughts that are poisoning me.

Realising that I don’t need to be in control 24/7 & that it is okay to go with the flow in life & to not question everything is happening around me & everyone around me.

Realising that if I was less stressed in life, my thought pattern would be VERY different!

Today, I enjoyed my own company, I enjoyed spending time outdoors alone, thinking, & also switching off for once in my life.

Below are some of the photos from my walk, I want to share – the silence was amazing.

  1. Awesome! I really enjoy reading your posts as I am connecting a lot and finding myself in them. My spiritual journey didnยดt start of with Meditation or Yoga but with travelling trough Patagonia as a hitch hiker for 1 month, enjoying national parks. Therefore I can relate a lot to your experience!

  2. Thank you for this. I have just had my first ever panic attack and after I have phoned the doctor I know exactly what to do now. I’m going to the local RSPB centre and I’m going to walk, relax and enjoy the tranquillity!

      1. I’ve started by writing a poem and blogging it raw, unedited and straight from the heart. A great form of therapy for me. It’s freezing outside today, literally have frost on the cars but crisp fresh air could be the best treatment so I don’t become stuck inside afraid all day

      2. Is this poem live now? I will definitely check that out! Poems are great! And, if that is a coping strategy for you, than you write on ๐Ÿ™‚ Crispy air could do the trick, maybe don’t go for a drastic walk, just a baby one, baby steps are good ๐Ÿ™‚
