I still went out as much as before, but instead of getting drunk I would just stick to 4 pints.Again it is not an over night thing but the above really helped me on my way to who I am now.I was sure there was a secret out there that just needed discovering.It was then that I realised that I did not need to figure my way back to a calm mind, I just had to stop going over my past experiences and stop peering into my future experiences.I would also love people to watch a film that had a big effect on me after my recovery and just shows the importance of a calm mind.The link is here and it is over a few episodes and around 3 hours long altogether, but do try and watch it, it is very inspiring and a real eye opener. v=L_z Dtd Yu3m A Paul New Anxietynomore App more information about my book ‘At last a life’ visit more help with anxiety visit Follow me on Twitter This entry was posted on Wednesday, March 7th, 2012 at pm and is filed under Obsessive thoughts.All this mental planning was constant and it could be a simple trip out with friends or going round to a family gathering, I was obsessed how I as coming across and how things were going, then filling myself with negative thoughts about how bad my life was and how it was not fair that others could enjoy themselves and not me, more thoughts on how to fix it, my mind just never switched off.
Everything has taken off in the last year or so and it is hard work keeping up and I have to cut back on certain things.
I should though be around on the blog more as things have calmed a little and it starts with todays post.
A mind that never seems to switch off I know a lot struggle with an over active mind and wonder how to calm it.
When we are anxious then our body works over time and the reason we may sweat or feel restless and unable to sit still, with this comes an over active mind that seems to start on one subject then jump to another with little rhyme or reason.
Firstly I realised that a calm mind led to a calm body and the mistake I was making was to try and figure my way back to a calm mind, to try and unravel what I was doing wrong, what I needed to do etc.
