    Can’t Stop Thinking...

    • Can’t Stop Thinking...

    “Why is it so hard to just relax?” “Why can’t I turn my thoughts off?” Sound familiar? So many anxiety sufferers struggle with the quieter moments in life or have difficulty relaxing. It’s a vicious cycle, you go to work and look forward to the end of the day or weekend, you get there, and you can’t escape your mind. Somehow, your desired time becomes stressful and without learning to properly control these thoughts or utilizing good coping skills, many people turn to maladaptive behaviors. Drinking, drugs, binge eating, excessively exercising or anything to stop the mind from examining every detail of the past or future. I get it, it’s exhausting. Maybe you can relate and let me tell you MANY PEOPLE FEEL THIS WAY.

    So, how does one learn to turn their thoughts off? I wish there was an easy answer to this question but like most things in life, if you want something, you’ve got to work at it -- anxiety included. At A Little Counseling, we see counseling sessions as weekly practice. Our program is designed to help you learn to think in a more productive way. When you’ve spent so many years of your life being trapped in your mind, it takes time and practice to learn how to navigate your way out. Positive coping skills can be great and are certainly better than negative coping, but alone they are not always universal in all situations. This is why learning to retrain your brain to think differently is so beneficial and anybody who is willing to put the work in CAN! If you’re ready, give us a call.
