Alone with thoughts
Anon_11642 posted:
Hi - just wondering when your mind is so busy with sometimes anxious thoughts what do you do to stop thinking - sometimes at night I lay in the dark with anxious thoughts -

Am sure this is a common problem for many but wondering what does one do to stop this other than taking tranquilizers which I dont want to do. Would appreciate some good advice here. Thank you.

It's tough. I suffer from the same. The best solution is to immerse yourself in something else and start to change thought pattern, if you switch the energy, it takes the pressure off

I know but at night it's hard as you dont want to get up and start working in the house but guess you mean change thought pattern to something pleasant - right? Sometimes why we do this to focus on negativity when there is so much out there but guess we all have positive things to think about - guess it just takes a lot of hard work to turn it around. Thanks for you reply.
