If you sometimes worry that your mind is making so much noise that you can hardly hear yourself think, then just remember than calming down the mind is one of the hardest jobs that we have to do and that everyone is touched by this issue in some way or another.
You are certainly not alone.
I find it really helps to just bring your awareness to it and observe. See what nonsense your mind is getting up to. And honestly, why take it seriously? I’d like to share some of my thoughts on this with you so you can see how I tend to deal with it.
So go on, give it a name. If you see that your mind is making up stories about some terrifying illness, just speak to your mind and tell it that you know what it is doing.
I’m telling you. That really starts to take the drama out of it all and restores a sense of balance.
Your mind can be really useful when you need to logically think things through, but then let it take the backseat so that you can be present with yourself.
