My mind is busy today with all kinds of things so I thought I would write. By write, I mean something a little more interesting than some of the dribble I have been publishing lately. So today, grasshopper, I am going to teach you how to calm your mind.
As always, I like to write about things I have problems with myself. Quieting my mind so I can focus is one of them. But I know some things that work for me and perhaps they will work for you too.
Stop and Stare
Often busy work gets overwhelming, especially if it is not productive busy work. Reading email, checking out social media, surfing the web, or interrupting myself with a random thought that leads to more busy work. The best thing to do when you need to regain your focus is to stop and do nothing. I usually stare at my computer until I can regain my composure.
