If you’re like me, you have to watch out for the ol’ over chattering mind.
We have to remember that there is a part of our mind that wants to keep us from stepping out into the world.
And, our mind has an effective way to keep us immobilized.
It’s a technique that always stops us in our tracks.
What is that fantastic technique?
Inviting us into a MENTAL DRAMA.
So, if you catch yourself glazing over as you stare at the ceiling while listening to how “You might just not be good enough…”
Well then there’s only one thing to do…
The Committed Impulse

That bring you back from wearing mental drama pants.
As soon as you realize your mind pulled you into a crack-den of doubt, say out loud:
Actually SEE what is in front of you.
When we go into mental dramas we disconnect from our immediate environment.
Actively returning to what is real – meaning – what is actually around you – will pull you out of the swamp.
Take a deep BREATH.
Our breathing decreases when we are in our head – breathing will bring you back.
Connect to whatever you feel in your BODY.
Typically we are triggered into a mental drama when we experience a body sensation we have
a low tolerance for. So, when you reconnect with your body – it may be intense – but it’s always
better than listening to how you suck.
PRACTICE THE PRACTICE. It changes everything in your life and art.
Here’s a lil video from class about mental dramas, and what to do.
It’s short and sweet.
Now, we’d love to hear from you about how you’ve used THE PRACTICE to come back from a mental drama. If you’re new to THE PRACTICE and have questions – pop ‘em below as well.
