Tips on 100mph thoughts
So I commented this on @therealjacksepticeye‘s video and realised some people here might like it too.So here you go…
Hey, I have a few tips for people who struggle with being unable to
focus or sleep due to their thoughts going 100 mph.
So most people have a thing that clears their head and calms them down,
it can be a book, food, games, YouTube videos or even just a shower. Try
discovering what you calm things are and use them when needed.
For the restless hands, try wearing a hair tie or elastic around your
wrist. Take it if when you feel the need, fiddle around with it and put
it back on your wrist when you’re done.
When trying to sleep, try focusing on one thought. This could be a song,
or a problem, or just something that happened that day. Let that
thought die out. In the case of the song, let it end, the problem, solve
it or check whether it’s really that much of a problem. When it’s an
event, just relive the memory. In most cases this will help clear your
Another thing I like to do is start my dream. I think up a story,
what it looks, feels, smells and sounds like and live it like a dream.
Eventually I fall asleep (or just call it coma for all I care, it’s
sheer nothingness and it might as well be time travel to the next
moring) and sometimes even end up lucid dreaming.
So to recap:
- learn what clears your head and use it
- wear a elastic or have a coin to keep your hands busy
- focus on one thought and finish it to clear your head
(- start your dream before falling asleep)
I hope this was at least a little helpful to someone. Have a nice day.
