Do you ever have those moments where you are trying to get something done, but you can't get out of your head long enough to focus? Maybe you are fearful, doubtful, anxious, stressed, or simply remembering an embarrassing situation from ten years ago. Whatever the reason, sometimes we struggle to get out of our heads. If this sounds like you, check out these nine handy tips on how to deal with it.
1. Schedule Reflection Time You can't possibly eliminate all of the thoughts running through your head, so why not schedule some time to reflect? Schedule some good old "me time" with just you and your head. Hopefully, this will allow you to carry on distraction-free the rest of the day.
2. Write Your Thoughts Down If you find that you are often lost in worry, anxiety, or other negative feelings, try releasing them with the written word. Starting a journaling practice is a great way to get those worries stuck in your head out into the open.
3. Spend Time With Loved Ones When you spend time with people you truly care about, you will be less likely to be lost in your thoughts. Make a concerted effort to get caught up in the moment. Listen closely to what they say; observe what they do, and feel the joy of just being with them.
4. Establish a Meditation Routine Meditation is all about clearing your mind. While that is hardly a thorough definition, it does sound perfect if you are struggling to get out of your head. It may take you some time to break through all the noise and relax enough to meditate, but it's worth the effort.
