At war with your mind, wondering how to offload the plethora of thoughts that keep plaguing you all day long? Well, yes, such thoughts are likely to cause much distress when you are trying to study, or work or even sleep. No matter how hard you are trying to concentrate, your mind refuses to calm down. Do you suffer these symptoms? Are you wondering how to keep it under control? And how to calm your overactive mind? Yes? Then, read on.
Talk to Yourself
Well, of course, do it when no one is around. Otherwise you are going to be one popular guy, and definitely not for any positive reasons. Jokes apart, there
are a million things running in your mind at a time. Whilst some would be positive thoughts, the rest are bound to be unpleasant and may only end up upsetting you. Just mull over the positive thoughts flowing in your head, and repeat them. Repeat to yourself that you can control your mind. This will help you deal with your inner turmoil. Say aloud what you are thinking. Listening to it may help analyse it better.
This is the easiest way to calm your thoughts. Read your favourite book, listen to your favourite song or play your favourite movie. You can even try those silly games you used to play as a kid, such as standing in front of a table fan and listening to your robotic voice!
Fantasize (no holds barred)
Fantasising might make your brain work harder, even though the purpose is exactly the opposite, but then, who is complaining? You can fantasise about being at your dream destination, driving your favourite sports car or bike, or spending some intimate (read ‘naughty’) moments with the bombshell next door!
Focus on Something Uneventful
Look at your wall clock and start observing the movement of its hands. It might not make any kind of sense whatsoever and it might be boring as hell, but that’s precisely the point. The lesser sense it makes, the lesser work your senses do, literally!
Focus on Your Friend’s Problem
Yes, the focus still remains a problem, but not yours! Focusing on another’s dilemma is bound to make you divert your energy away from the pile of rubbish weighing your mind down. What’s more, you might just be doing your buddy a huge favour by being his friend in need.
Exercise Your Body, Not Your Brain
Exercising is much more than keeping yourself physically fit. A jog in the park every morning rejuvenates your brain and the whole thought process. Feel yourself more filled with energy than ever before!
The unnecessary hard work that the brain puts into everything causes stress and anxiety. Worse still, it causes hair fall! So, it is extremely important to flush out the redundant thoughts and keep your head clutter-free. Follow the above tips and end this long-stretched combat with your brain.
