Many people suffer from a ‘racing mind’. According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, approximately 46% of Australians over the age of 16 have experienced a mental illness throughout their life, with anxiety being the most prevalent mental disorder recorded.
Our anxiety counselling services helps clients manage symptoms of anxiety and work to improve your mental wellness. However, there are some things you can to calm your mind!
Tools for slowing down a racing mind
- Try Conscious Breath Work
By focusing on the breath can calm down the mind. Try to take breathe in for a count of 3, hold for a count of 3 and breathe out for a count of 3.
- Observe and Challenge Your Thought Processes
Actively asking yourself why your mind is racing and the reasons behind your thoughts can help refocus your attention and give less power to your worries.
- Talk about what you are thinking about
Reaching out to a professional or a trusted friend or family member can help calm an overthinking mind. If you don’t feel comfortable reaching out, try writing down your thoughts.
In Australia, approximately 2 million people are living with anxiety. Life Resolutions provides anxiety counselling with experienced psychologists. Jodie Brenton and Mary Magalotti continue the pursuit of providing better mental care to those suffering from anxiety.
