I just allow it to be busy by observing what it's busy about rather than clinging to every thought. Also try to focus on your breath going in and out of the body
It might sound weirs but I've made the experience that if your head is full of various thoughts it is best to write them down on a piece of paper or better in a notebook. This way you can let go of things but you still have them near you and in addition writing can be pretty calming.
I prefer to meditate using a repeated mantra or to read. When my brain has to focus on a word/phrase or the book, it’s harder for it to get distracted by other thoughts. If needed I will do either of them a loud for further reinforcing the same idea.
- What’s your best (fastest) way of getting out of your own head?
- How do I disconnect?
- When do you start the Disconnect habit before you go to bed? 10 min, 1 hour…?
- How and what do you feel during the time between disconnecting and going to bed?
- I love to play music before sleeping and usually is on my cellphone. What would you suggest to do instead?
- Do you disconnected from everything? What if somebody texts you?
- How can you be indifferent about all the things happening around the world and do not check the news daily?
- What time should I start winding down? I usually go to bed around 9 pm.
- Does disconnecting for the night help?
- How can I create a routine that doesn’t get boring willing time?
