Choice

Choice is described as an individual’s opportunity to perform an action selected from at least two available options.  The right to make a choice can be difficult when we get too much information, we struggle to make the “right” choice, we overthink and “what if” questions circle our minds. 

Albert Einstein once said, “if I had an hour to solve a problem, I would take 55 minutes thinking about the problem and identifying what the problem is.  Then take 5 minutes thinking about the solutions.”   The point Einstein makes is so valid, we are so busy creating this overthinking we don’t know what the problem is, we don’t have solutions. 

Learning how to let go of overthinking can be a choice.  It is kind of like learning to stick in your own lane, stick to the “now” instead of jumping from thought to thought.  There are some small tricks to helping us, reduce screen time, add in some exercise, pay attention to your breathing, learn how to feel calm, in control and highly mindful.  Try counting your breathing, control and mindfully breath in and out.  Feel the calm.  This practice helps you become more in control of calm.

If you act calmly and engage in calm, then you will find calm.
