Do you take time to turn off your mind for a while?
Sometimes smoking a bowl and watching a movie is just the kind of relaxation the mind needs :]
Socializing and drinking are basically the things that i use to turn my mind off. Even being on the internet only softens the mental noise, you know? I can get pretty distracted playing video games with my best friend from back home and I can get totally out of my mind while drinking, but other than that I usually am always thinking about something.
Music helps with actually making some mental headway, though. It allows for the solitude to be pretty profitable instead of burdensome.
My problem is that I can still continue that mental chatter at the same time as doing those other things. Docs call it ADD idk what is is but I find it extremely difficult to shut my mind up I matter what I’m doing. And yes I do practice meditation.
@keru111, smoking weed never gets to turn off my mind, it just makes me uncomfortable or gets me working out….. heh.
