Do you have an overactive mind? Here are a few tips to calm yourself.
Move your body - running, yoga, swimming, zumba. Do any form of exercise you enjoy. It will do two things: one, it will help you get out of your mind, and into your body; and two, it will balance out your hormones. Exercise lowers stress hormones, and releases happy hormones, uplifting your mood instantly.
Bringing focus to your breath can be extremely relaxing and rejuvenating. Over time, and with regular practice, focused deep breathing improves concentration and overall state of mind.
Too many of us take ourselves and our lives too seriously. Learn to take things lightly, one day at a time, and enjoy the process!
The overactive mind is constantly thinking about the past or future. By living in the now you will be able to release what you cannot control. This doesnt mean that you instantly become unaware of what has happened or what is about to happen. It is more of a realisation that the past cannot change and the future hasnt occurred, so why think about either?
