Suspend your reality. What is reality to you? Your career, kids, financial challenges, bills, food, exercise, clothes, going to school, health, illness etc.? Whatever reality is for you, it equates to responsibility…the mind is in reality mode. What we think affects how we feel. Your thoughts create emotions; emotions generate moods, and your feelings alter how your body functions. Personally, without taking a break from reality I will often find myself stressed and overly anxious. I need to allow myself to deal with my worries, and to feel my emotions. When my worries cannot be solved immediately, it is important that I am able to shut them off and not allow the negative stuff to wash over everything. I call this suspending my reality. How do I suspend my reality? A nice run with some music to keep me going will take my mind, emotions and body on a more clear, healthy path. I also LOVE movies! Two hours of losing myself in a different world, no worries, responsibilities not anything! So I asked some of you. “How do you suspend your reality? “
Many responses, here are a few:
