Daily Stoic Entry #99: Can I Step Back and Test My Impressions? What Would I Find If I Did?
April 9th, 2022
Follow along with my personal daily stoic journal, unfiltered, unedited (except for some spelling mistakes).
Keep practicing meditation and mindfulness. I don't really need to think more about a problem. Overthinking is part of the issue for me. However, stepping back allows you to take a moment to act rather than react on an immediate emotional response triggered by your environment.
Would I find more peace of mind? That's one of my goals to walk around without that know of anxiety in my stomach. What do I really need to find, wille most likely be different from what I think I need. I feel that by stepping back and practicing that mindfulness allows me to figure that out eventually.
