Intriguing Shower Thoughts To Stew Over

Nothing like a batch of shower thoughts to occupy the mind and fill the void. For whatever reason our brains churn out all kinds of nuggets of half-baked wisdom when we're in the shower. Whether it's the sobering realization that our tongues have the hardest job, and are constantly avoiding being chopped off; or something more innocent like the fact that taking crumbs away from an ant could make said ant look like a liar to the rest of the colony; shower thoughts are a swell time.

Supportive Tumblr Thread On Dealing With Invasive Thoughts

Assigning silly identities and voices to those various thought streams that might pop up as invasive, and with a dark tone around them, can be helpful in riding out the process back toward peace. If you're able to step outside the thought when it pops up, recognize it as that, and not identify with the thought, it can almost end up being a game of sorts. Is the conspiracy theorist with the panicked strain piping up again from the back corridors of your mind? Maybe.
