How to Evaluate Your Headspace


Where is your headspace?


Your headspace is your mindset. What consumes or takes up the space in your head.


Your thoughts create your reality. What reality are you creating for yourself? Is it the life that you want to live? Are you choosing happiness and health?


It is time to evaluate our headspace. Your self-talk creates the reality around you. It affects how you perceive your day, the choices you make, and your relationships. How? Whether or not you realize it, we are creating assumptions and formulating feelings all the time. And sometimes those assumptions and feelings don't align with the truth. They can be false accusations based on our past experiences, our own misconceptions and insecurities, and the priorities we have set for ourselves.


So the true question is how do we hold each thought captive? How can we refocus our energies and be mindful of our headspace?


Slow down. Take a breath. A deep breath in through your nose, sighing your exhale out through your mouth. Take a moment just to focus on the sensation of your breath. Notice how the air flow feels through your nostrils. Notice your chest expand and contract. Notice your distractions and busy thoughts dissipating.


If it feels good, close your eyes as you focus inward on how your body feels. Roll your shoulders down away from your ears. Sit tall, maybe sitting in an easy seat. Lengthening your spine, lifting through the crown of your head. Take note of how it feels in your body.


Taking a moment to truly be in your body, you can gain a better perspective of where your headspace. Clearing your mind, focusing in. Ask yourself, what do I know as true? Is this thought worthwhile or beneficial to myself or my loved ones?


Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things. Philippians 4:8 (NIV)

Evaluate your headspace in accordance to your faith and in accordance to what is most important to your life. If it isn't worthwhile or aligned with what's important, don't let those thoughts live rent-free in your head. Refill your headspace with what is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, and admireable. Soak in the love in your life and notice the blessings around you. Don't let that negative self-talk or toxic headspace take you down and control your life. Regain control by taking a hard and honest look at your headspace.
