I’m finding I’m relaxing more during these walks. Taking in the air and appreciating the quietness between the roads. It’s nice to see a few dogs too. One thing I have noticed with my mind that I am able to articulate now is a sense of social panic and continued preparation.
My mind often conjures up fictional social situations where I am subjected to questioning and harsh judgements. For example, I imagine talking to a psychiatrist about something, or I meet someone new in Church or someone on Twitter says something really judgemental.
My mind constantly comes up with new scripted replies and then more scenarios. It can be difficult to concentrate sometimes.I think what has helped me is taking the leap of faith to believe in Christ.I am less emotionally attached to this life and can let go. It aids mindfulness.
