There is one saying that is useful in this situation and that is “sleep on it”. It is a fantastic idea! It means just let your unconscious thoughts work away at finding a solution.
Another great idea that I love is when I have a problem and I just don’t have the time or shouldn’t be investing the time in trying to solve that problem immediately. I may have a presentation to give or an important meeting to attend to.
When this occurs and I am unable to give a problem or situation the attention it requires, I place the problem or situation into my mental parking lot until later.
I let my body and mind know that I will deal with it, just not yet. I then have the ability to focus on whatever it is that I should be investing my mental and physical and emotional energy into. When I place my issue into my parking lot, I am able to stay in the present.
Because I haven’t invested or wasted time on this, it actually allows me to make a better decision later. Deciding to put things in the parking lot is another way that I can take control of my life rather than being controlled.
Give it a go. It may just be another valuable tool that you can use to create a better life.
