My trainer was talking to my sister and said she could even notice me analyzing the thing she told me to do in a lesson. I'm not aware of that in particular, but I do know that before I do ANYTHING I have to plan out what I'm going to do, even what I'm going to say! It is kind of exhausting when you think about it.
Oh, and if something is bothering me, I keep on thinking on and on about it, trying to search for something that will make me feel better about it.
This next thing isn't really bad, but I guess I'm competitive with myself instead of other people, in other words I'm my own enemy... LOL!
So like, going to a jump, instead of just riding through it, I'm going over how I should look before, during, and after the jump AND what my horse should look like!
At this point, you guys probably think I should be seeing a therapist or something, but I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one out there
Do you guys have any advice on how to shut off my brain and go with the flow?
Thanks fellow therapists!
