There are many ways to quiet the overactive mind, including the following:
- Change ‘What if?’ to ‘What is?’. Instead of ‘What if…happens?’ ask yourself ‘What is really happening right now? What steps can I take to deal with this today’?.
- Put the hamster to bed. One of my brilliant podcast guests, Robin Farmanfarmaian shared that when she has a hamster on a wheel in her head, she visualises a safe nesting box full of shredded paper. She pops it in the box, lowers the lights and lets it go to sleep.
? Happy hamster. ?Happy free mind.
