“There comes a time in every woman's life when the only thing that helps is a glass of champagne.” ~Bette Davis

 

You know those days where you just can’t get your head screwed on straight? There’s something wrong and you just can’t put your finger on it? You are anxious, full of worry and just have no clue as to why! Well, sometimes its hormones (you have your gender to thank for that, sorry), and sometimes its just our mind wandering in directions for reasons we cant explain.

When days like this hit, I always tell myself “ok crazy lady, its time for a mental lane change!”

I start by trying to change my routine for the day.  Sometimes all we need is a little change in our normal daily routine to actually knock our minds back on track and stop thinking like a lunatic. Here are some of the things that usually do the trick for me:

 

Work It Out! Get a workout in! Even if its just a 20 or 30 minute run! Mind and body are connected. When you exercise you release lots of  “feel good” endorphins! Blast some of your favorite tunes while you are at it. Need some musical inspiration, check out our Moment of Zen section for some new tracks. Remember, our body’s natural medicine is always the best!

Call a friend that makes you laugh! have my speed dial loaded with my friends that make me laugh…sometimes all I need is a 5 minute phone call to someone that just puts a smile on my face. Like we always say, surround yourself with positive people doing positive things and it’s amazing how your life can change in both the smallest and most meaningful ways.

Short story for ya….one day a friend of mine called me in the middle of the week right in the middle of the day and she was crying.  Like a good friend I asked, “What on earth is wrong?” “What happened?” To which she replied, in a sobbing voice,  “I don’t know and nothing happened. I am just driving around in my car crying!” To which I laughed and said, “Well something must be wrong?” Well, after talking for a few minutes the conversation quickly turned to a laugh between two friends and we hung up after a few short minutes later. When I called the next day to check up on her, I again asked, “Are you okay?” “Did something happen?” She replies “Oh no, I’m fine now. I think its that time of the month…thats all!”

Again, you can see where sometimes there really is NOTHING wrong, but just our minds playing tricks on us.  So, pick up the phone and call a friend who makes you smile! Most likely they can slap ya back into a positive state and you can tell yourself that you ARE in control and ARE not crazy! “Bless Your Heart”

Read, Watch, Explore! Sometimes it’s just enough to read an inspiring article, or watch a funny video to get your mind back on track.

We are going to do our best each week to arm you with as much positive re-enforcement we can provide and you can handle. Need a laugh…check out our Motormouth section or click the Daily LOL. There’s always some meaningless video clip or time wasting read you can find there, just the perfect fix for your moment of unstableness. Or find inspiration here in “What’s In The Cabeza” and tell us what’s going on in your cabeza today. We love hearing from you and love to help! Just comment below and we’ll do our best to get your head back in the game!

If all else fails…go to sleep or have a drink! Just kidding but not really! 

Cheers to finding your Mental Lane Changer!
