    How often do you really let go? Put the phone down, no distractions, no book no magazine, no TV, music zoning in

    Just let your thoughts go wherever they go, get vacant, declutter




    209 bitch what

    Yeah but do you let that dialogue run wherever it wants

    Absolutely, I often have conversations between three different people at times

    Do you ever narate for yourself, so it's a one sided commentary, like he's the one who's awake and needs to tell the vacant one what's going on

    Never.

    Whenever my brain starts floating around, I stop winning.

    I frequently try to relax my mind and let my subconscious work through problems. I find this approach can frequently yield stress free results to complex work issues. I'm an engineer so my problems are generally practical / mathematical instead of emotional though

    It's a great stress relief practice. Even for a few moments, while you wait at the traffic light or something. Watch your thoughts arise and pass by. I do a lot of gardening and farm work, and my grandpa told me years ago: while you're doing hard physical work, you let your mind wander. The work will appear to be done quicker and easier. If it wasn't for Sherdog, I wouldn't spend more than 20 minutes online daily. The internet is a great distraction for us all. It's good to give it a rest from time to time.

    Quite often actually. Sitting outside, just staring at the river. My thoughts usually wander towards food eventually.

    I hate the silence as it makes me deal with things. I've seen a lot and don't like dwelling much. I prefer stimulation and noise. When I get home, I immediately turn a podcast on.

    I have to do shit to make my mind relax. Longboarding, snowboarding, car racing, fucking, etc. I can't sit still.

    My brain is rarely in the moment. It's a blessing and a curse.

    I've learned to live with it.

    You know me, man. Even after I've just taken my Adderall for the day & you'd think I'd be laser-focused my ADD lets my mind wander. That's why I'm always multitasking. Even when I'm at leisure watching a film I've also got to be on my laptop surfing the web or hanging out here or on Facebook. It's just the way I operate.

    Speaking of films, have you acquired anything new & noteworthy? I haven't for about a month or so. But I've got some preorders coming in a couple of weeks from now & I've got to order a plethora of stuff at the beginning of October.

    My mind really doesn't ask my permission to start pondering random shit.

    It's kind of a problem.

    Not that deep really, just put everything down, listen to music and let go
