Sometimes we can get so caught up in our heads that we forget to be in the present moment. Experts estimate that the mind thinks between 50.000 – 80.000 thoughts per day. That’s a lot! Not to forget all the emotions that come with these thoughts: excitement, happiness, overwhelm, anxiety, gratitude.. I’m a thinker, so I’m often stuck in my head. It’s really important for me to clear my mind, because otherwise I sleep bad and I feel anxious and overwhelmed. Here are some things that I like to do to clear my mind:
Talk with someone
Write your thoughts down
Go for a walk
Do something creative (like drawing)
Follow a yoga class
Spend time in nature
Everybody is different, so what works for me doesn’t necessarily have to work for you and vice versa. Just try some of the tips and see what works!
