Sometimes when I wake up, there are hundreds of thoughts that run through my head. Sometimes they are negative, and sometimes the thoughts are things that I am pondering about and/or analyzing. But regardless of the type, they tend to take my focus away from the important tasks that I am supposed to do.
I am sure many of you have felt this.
You would wake up and find it difficult to focus on your work because your mind is filled with thoughts. You may be worried about something or annoyed by something that you overheard on the TV.
What I have found to work best in removing these thoughts is to write them down. Writing, to me, is a form of therapy. When there are too many things and emotions running around in my mind, I just write them down and leave it on the paper. Have concerns about something? Write them down. Analyzing something you heard? Write it down. Daydreaming about something? Write it down. Just write down all your thoughts and feelings and leave it on the paper.
Writing as therapy has been very useful to me and I think it can help you too.
