Having restless thoughts as well as feelings of restlessness throughout your body in regards to where you are in life post stroke is difficult. To say yes, “having restless thoughts and feelings of restlessness is difficult” is one thing. To be the person suffering is another thing altogether!
How are you meant to travel your stroke recovery journey without a great deal of direction and then have to suffer with restlessness as well? We are responsible to find many of our own answers in life, and this is what makes us all individuals. We are incredibly fortunate that others can help guide us and give us first hand knowledge in regards to how to navigate forwards through the difficulties that you may be facing.
There are many people out there who are great at convincing others that their answers are the right ones and that you should spend money buying their products
Restlessness can come in all shapes and sizes, however in this case I will be talking about restless thoughts as well as having restless sensations in your body.

Restless thoughts: Being a stroke survivor promotes restlessness simply put. If you don’t learn how to control these restless thoughts you are going to struggle. How do you manage restless thoughts being a stroke survivor? There are many ways, however a good place to start that you are lucky to have is to get your copy of the Stroke Recovery Toolkit as this explains all of the useful information that has helped me on my journey. What I talk about in this Toolkit is an accumulation of what has helped me which I have accumulatively learnt over the past 17 years. You are sure to find at a minimum a good selection of tactics that will help you manage your restless thoughts going forward.

Restlessness throughout your body: Restlessness throughout your body is (mostly) simply put restless thoughts occurring throughout your mind. Stroke survivors have so many restless thoughts it’s not not funny..
“Ok I have restless thoughts and sometimes experience restlessness throughout my body, how on earth am I meant to control this, and put an end to this”? You may have thoughts similar to this, and let’s be frank, Practice makes perfect. In this case good old fashioned repetition works wonders! Practicing repetition in the sense that you may want to have less restless thoughts as well as less restlessness in your body can be tough. It can be tough taking this on yourself as you may not know exactly what to do that could help you personally improve. You may not know in what direction you should go, or who you should seek advice from.
We are living in a world where the words Do It Yourself (DIY) are at the forefront of our minds. Especially when it comes to searching for answers online. We all get to use the same platform/s, yet we all receive different answers. So the fact that you found yourself reading this blog today could well and truly be the answer to some of your questions you may have. I have created two DIY digital products so far that give you insight into different levels of detail when it comes to managing and improving on your journey forwards. There is also my autobiography which is available. This is about my stroke recovery journey and insight into life. If you like you can get yourself a copy of either of these. Or you can book in to talk with me one on one and I can help implement what you read in these products, or simply be your Counsellor, Mentor, Guide and accountability partner.
In all heartfelt honesty I can personally say I have been where you are right now, where you were or where you will be, so I can say, yes this journey is hard. It is unbearable at times, but with enough patience and support, you will see better days ahead.
Better & Better
