Consider reflecting on your thoughts and questioning their validity. Are you unknowingly getting caught up in them? Take a moment to become aware of the constant chatter in your mind and then make a conscious decision. Ask yourself, do I want to engage with these thoughts or let them go?
Here are a few techniques that might help. Try redirecting your focus to something outside of yourself, like an object in the distance or nearby. You can also try changing your physical location or drinking more water, as these simple actions can have a positive impact.
One amazing tool to instantly calm your breathing and reduce anxiety is square breathing. Take a deep breath in for 4 seconds, hold it for 4 seconds, exhale for 4 seconds, and hold for 4 seconds again. Notice how this brings you into a state of calm awareness.
If you're looking for relaxation and mindfulness resources, YouTube offers a variety of short videos that can work wonders. I personally recommend this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jyy0ra2WcQQ.
If you prefer shorter videos, there are plenty of one-minute options available as well.
For further exploration into the workings of your mind, I highly recommend Jo Dispenza. His insights into the past, present, and future, as well as the mechanics of our minds, can be truly eye-opening.
If you're interested, you can find more of Jo Dispenza's work on Spotify: [insert Spotify link]. In one episode, Joe mentions that having a peaceful mind can potentially add 15 years to your life, which is quite remarkable.
Remember, you don't have to face loneliness alone. Loneliness can actually bring us together at the Chitter Chatter Club, rather than driving us apart.
