Often, you find yourself stuck in a loop of negative thoughts. And if we’re honest, we have wished, at least once, that our minds had an off button. Since that can’t be, there are simple solutions you can use to quiet your mind when you need moments of peace.
Hassan Mahmood says that the human mind is a noisy place, a busy street of thoughts, ideas, worries, and so much more. According to science, daydreaming is a sign of intelligence, which is true, but sometimes, the chatter in your mind can be destructive, especially when negative thoughts dominate.
From very early on, Hassan Mahmood makes it clear that your mind won’t ever stop thinking. However, you can practice mindfulness to help you surpass the thoughts running wild. Hassan stresses that mindfulness is aimed at helping you quiet your thoughts, not suppress them. This is so you can work on your purpose. The key to achieving mindfulness is through meditation, which Hassan recommends.
Hassan Mahmood adds that when you learn to focus on what’s important, the rest of your thoughts can run free without interrupting your quest for success. Being present in every situation will help your mind stop wandering. While the process of finding your purpose can be strenuous, mindfulness will help you focus and sort through your thoughts to find that spark of passion.
Another way that Hassan Mahmood recommends to help you quiet your mind is distancing yourself from your worries. When you break out of a rut you’ve been stuck in, you’re able to see clearer and can focus on your purpose instead of worries. To do this, start by practicing distanced self-talk, avoid the “I, I, I" running in your mind, and choose a different pronoun to distance yourself from the distracting thoughts.
Understandably, this is all easier said than done, but Hassan Mahmood emphasizes that it is doable. Nothing should keep you from finding your purpose, not even yourself!
