If you’ve ever had trouble solving a dilemma, and the more time you spent considering it, the more difficult it seemed to be to figure out, you should know that you’re not the only one.
There was a single mom six years ago who was employed full time as a behavior therapist for families who had children having severe behavior issues. As her work turned out to be more oppressive, she felt lost in a thick, black tumultuous woods.
Because she didn’t desire to remain her entire life unable to find her way in the forest, she discovered a secret: you can’t always find the solutions to your problems out in the open, but because they are just under the obvious of the aware functioning mind, unexpectedly the solution becomes to not attempt so much to solve it.
Having acquired this insight, I permitted the trees to drop off, and lucidity came back. Not long after she recognized these strategies she quit the stressful job and began teaching yoga, meditation and life endorsing workshops which assisted others to calm their thoughts and live healthier, successful lives. Now she is more content and more satisfied than ever before in her life, so she is anxious to pass on directions for you to arrive in that place.
5 ways to discover methods to avoid thinking too much
1. Live in the moment
Concentration is at the heart of Buddhism, Taoism and a few Native American traditions. Feeling that the pressures are too much for you develops out of too much thought to the past or what has to be accomplished in the future.
Give your consideration to what needs to be done at the moment and delight in the splendor of this immediate occasion which won’t be back in this particular form. You can discover that your mind possesses an extraordinary capability to remain peaceful and satisfied when you can continue to concentrate on the immediate.
2. Write your thoughts on paper
You can find comfort in relieving your mind of all the responsibilities which burden it. A very thought-releasing method of relinquishing these concerns can be journaling. A line from Anna Nalick’s song “Just Breathe” can continually help us remember the release that a pen and piece of paper can give to our mind:
“2 AM and I’m still awake, writing a song
If I get it all down on paper, it’s no longer inside of me,
Threatening the life it belongs to..”
