Do you ever feel this way? Like you are completely stuck in the jumble of thoughts that is your mind? What a complicated place to be sometimes!
The problem with our minds is that they are always on. Driving down the road, taking a shower, washing the dishes – engage brain. If we are watching a movie, we think. Should we be working, or going,or cleaning, or staying, or whatever – there will be thoughts. Maybe that is why people meditate. Maybe meditation gives one the opportunity to silence and sort all those thoughts.
My favorite way to tune everything out and to calm my mind is usually with ear-buds in and world turned off. Sometimes Adam Lambert does the trick. Sometimes it is ASMR. Often it is just soothing instrumental music or YouTube. YouTube is good.
Do you ever feel like your thoughts are overwhelming you? How do you manage your thoughts? What is your “go to” for relaxation of the mind?
