Mindful Monday ~ Extremes

Welcome to Mindful Monday a blogging event that has been created by Colleen over at Silverthreading but for a while is hosted here at “A Spirit of Healing”. Colleen follows her call to tell the fairies stories, so her blog follows other paths.

Therefore, I have stepped in as I believe Mindful Monday is important, and it is important to have it as a weekly feature. Thanks Colleen for letting me be the host for the time being!

Mindful Monday is a blog feature to support each other on our mindful and healthy journeys. It is not a challenge but a community of bloggers who post insightful posts on Mondays which make us think, change and hopefully act too.

Please feel free to leave your link to your Mindful Monday post in the comments, so the Mindful Monday community has the chance to head over to your place and give and get support.

I am looking forward to reading your insights for this week!


Last week Helen over at “This Thing Called Life One Word At A Time” shared with us how she feels depleted from fighting her demons but that she allows herself to rest and recuperate. Sending love and healing energy!


In 1989 Billy Joel published a song called “I go to Extremes”. One line says:

“Darling I don’t know why I go to extremes
Too high or too low there ain’t no in-betweens”

That is how it feels to me when I jump between depressive and anxious times: It’s either total low or hyperactivity. And lately, it seems to jump faster and faster from one to the other.

That  might, of course, be a sign that Mindfulness makes me more aware of the different ebbs and flows of my moods, emotions and my mindset. Or it just seems that way because I had a relatively stable time over the last year.

One thing is for certain, though: Mindfulness as a practise helps you to be more balanced and teaches you to take a step back and not delving back into your drama. It is a question of practice though and developing different coping strategies that will help me to go less to extremes.

What do you think?
