How to stop thinking...
Updated: Apr 4, 2018
Here are some quick tips to help you slow things down:
1. Do one thing at a time.
Find an activity and do just that.
2. No time traveling.
Stop focusing on the past or the future. We need to learn how to take breaks.
3. Don't judge yourself or others.
Accept for things the way they are. Shame is a driving force in beating ourselves up. Everyone, including yourself is doing the best they can.
4. Get out in nature.
Go for a walk in the woods or on the beach. Better yet, go out in the sun. Vitamin D can have an incredible effect on your mood.
Utilize your diaphragm and breathe through the nose. Take slow breaths in for 4 seconds, hold for 4 seconds, breathe out for 4 seconds and how for 4 seconds.
