My brain races like I’m speedy Gonzalez. I know how this feels.
Guided meditation apps like calm or simple habit help your racing mind to focus on the guides instructions.
Make a list or write down your 468973 thoughts.
Getting these thoughts onto paper allows your brain to slow down because you can’t forget it.
Talk to a therapist once a week to work on this. Seems stupid but I swear it helps.
Talk to someone. Rant about your life. Get all of it out. Record yourself. Voice memos videos whatever. Getting your thoughts out on paper ensures that you won’t forget which is therapeutic. If your thoughts are anxiety related, try a lower dose of your meds or anxiety medication.
