In Your Head

With the snow almost totally melted, more than anything, I’m looking forward to walks/hikes in and around the city. It’s always been important to me to make sure I fill my days with things that help me get outside of my head, because I am serious a over-thinker. I think things to death and often get lost in my thoughts, which can be positive, but it can also be quite negative. So knowing this about myself, I try to do things that help me leave my mind for a bit. This is usually something creative, like dancing, taking pictures, writing…but hiking is also a positive outlet for me. I’ll admit, I don’t like walking that much if it is to get a specific destination, but if I’m walking just for the sake of walking, I love it.

On this particular day, Ryan and I had planned to head to High Park (the best park in Toronto, imo) for a walk in the woods, but it was rainy and muddy and just not the ideal day for a leisurely stroll, so after brunch we headed to Dufferin Grove (a park close to our house) to snap some pictures and at the very least, breathe in fresh air for a little bit. I’m quite looking forward to summer in my new neighbourhood. I’ve never lived this close to a park, so I’m really hoping I’ll take advantage of it’s close proximity come the warmer days.

What about you guys, are you also over-thinkers? What helps you get out of your mind, and live in the present?

    I’m with you, creativity is the best to help me get out of my over-thinking head. Sewing, painting, last year I started dancing….and recently I’ve been repainting the faces of old dolls. Have you heard of Tree Change Dolls? If not, check it out on youtube or google, you might find it interesting. Great pictures!

    Your outfit is gorgeous! I love the color palette!
    I definitely get all up in my head a lot of the time. I always tend to overthink thing and dwell on subjects I don’t even really want to think about any more. I find that going outside, or even just getting any fresh air helps. I used to go on long drives, or just short pointless ones to clear my thoughts. Sometimes forcing myself to read (if it’s nasty out) also really helps. Either way, I am right there with you!
