You can combat with your mind and arrive at serenity through various routes. Discover the top five ways that are aimed to win the war with your overactive brain:
1. Entertain Yourself
One of the easiest and best ways to tranquil your thoughts is to entertain yourself. To keep amused yourself – play online games, read books, give pedicure, solve crossword puzzles, play your favorite movie, play with your pet, listen to your favorite songs, and have manicure. You can indulge yourself in playing crazy games you used to play in your early days.
Build a castle in the air; it makes the brain work harder. You can fantasize about getting intimate with the most charming man of your college, driving your favorite car, or spending vacations at your favorite destination. Just let your imagination run riot! When you fantasize more, your brain activity increases more. As a result- it gets tired, you feel sleepy, and ultimately your super-active brain finds a break.
3. Converse With Yourself
Many things run in your mind at a time. Some running thoughts are positive while others are negative and unpleasant that ultimately leave you disturbed and distressed.
Vocalize your internal thought process and ponder over good, positive thoughts, popping in your mind. It gives psychological and emotional relief. Express to yourself; explain your actions and motives to yourself. This helps in dealing with inner tumult. Saying aloud your flowing thoughts and listening to them, help in better analysis of inner uproar.
