Week 3 of the Support Driven Challenge is supposed to be about our thinking space.
After thinking about where my thinking space was I realized I don’t have a thinking space. My brain kinda just goes…
With that being said, it’s not unusual to find me zoned out or seemingly daydreaming at any point in the day. What I really struggle with is not thinking.
I tend to overanalyze and contemplate things way too much. What really helps me is turning off. It’s kind of like when you reset a computer and what ever wasn’t working magically starts working.
My non-thinking place is… spin class.
I usually go 2-3 times a week. It’s 45 min where instead of thinking about life, I forget and just enjoy the class. My favorite instructors have the best music and it’s a time to just have fun, pay attention to the beat, and focus on challenging myself physically.
Whenever I start thinking about life (as opposed to focusing on the ride) I tend to lose the beat and get annoyed. It’s like a literal jolt to remember class is for spinning and none of the stuff going on in the world outside.
Sometimes, the best approach to solving problems is taking a step back and that’s exactly what spin lets me do.
