It can be exhausting when you just can’t seem to turn your brain off. What can often happen is that all of this chaotic brain activity ends up stagnating us. We end up feeling paralysed by the overwhelm in our brains. We might then crucify ourselves, beating ourselves up for procrastinating and not moving forward. Does any of this sound familiar?
3 Methods To Minimise Mind Chatter
1. Breathe into your lower belly. Inhaling into the lower abdomen (Dan Tian) area calms your mind. It also brings the chaotic Qi (energy) in your head down into your belly so that you feel more grounded. This will result in your mind being clearer and more focused. When you are clear and focused in your mind you become more efficient at carrying out everyday activities. This has the knock on effect of saving you time so that you get more done resulting in less stress!
2. Give yourself something else to think about. If you are distracted by busy thoughts and can’t concentrate on your breathing the giving yourself something else to think about can help. As you breathe in say the mantra to yourself, “I’m breathing in”. As you breathe out say to yourself, “Relax”. It is very difficult for the mind chatter to creep in if you are saying these words to yourself. This method is a perfect example of how to use Qigong for mind chatter and its control.
3. Dump the mind chatter. Write down any worries, things to do, emotions or distractions on a piece of paper. Once they are out of your brain and on paper you will notice a huge difference. This is because you are clearing brain space and no longer have to hold busy thoughts in your mind as they are safely on paper.
