Calm a Chaotic Mind – 5 Super Ways
1. Keep your mind busy
There’s a delicate balance between keeping your mind busy without overcrowding it.
It’s one thing to occupy your mind so it doesn’t wander, but it’s a whole different ball game when you start stressing out about endless to-do lists and information overload.
Try to write 3-5 things you want to accomplish every day – and be sure to add at least one thing that is purely for fun. This will keep your mind busy without getting you too stressed.
2. Help others to help yourself!
When was the last time you extended a helping hand to someone who needs it?
Our brains tend to calm down when we’re in “helper mode” because the focus is on others rather than our own problems or stresses.
3. Pick up a creative hobby and give your mind a break…
We all have a creative side, whether it’s deep down or you’re continually flexing your creative muscles.
Picking up a creative hobby gives your brain a nice, healthy break from the usual grind.
Plus, it allows you to expand your intelligence with new forms of thinking. Win-win!
For me, this has been trying to learn the Guitar! Ok, it’s slow going and I’m still pretty rubbish, but it really does help my mind calm down.
4. Care for your physical well-being and your mind will follow…
The mind and body should fit like a hand and glove!
If you aren’t caring for your physical being, you may notice some stress going on in your head and this is certainly no way to calm a chaotic mind!
Take time to care for your body – work out more, take a walk, draw a bath, or snooze your alarm clock.
There are lots of ways to reenergize your body so that you can take on more in your mind!
5. Connect with others and get your mind active
Helping others and connecting with other people are two totally different things, but both are essential aspects of cultivating an active, healthy mind.
As humans, we need socialization.
We thrive when we are part of a tribe. We crave human interaction time, so get out there and get social! Every laugh and bit of chatter will feed your mind in countless ways.
Call a friend and have lunch in the park. It doesn’t have to be a big production, since the goal is simple human connection.
And finally, for now!
Do any of these work for you?
Please read through the list again and pick one thing to try, you’ll be amazed at the difference it can make.
Thanks for reading and as always, try not to worry, when you don’t have to.
