Solutions

Most of them are unhealthy and destructive.

Substances

Sedating your brain by smoking weed or drinking alcohol works, sort of. But it’s addictive and you’re not even fixing the core issue at hand.

Meditation

Don’t click off this article, yes I know what it sounds like.

Start small

Don’t do 30-minute sessions during the first week. It’s the same as going to the gym. You’re not going to bench 100kg the first time you go.

Mindfulness meditation

Do not, and I repeat, do not use the ASMR talking you through the meditation function.

  1. Close your eyes
  2. Focus on breathing in through your nose
  3. And out through your mouth. Breathing out should take longer than breathing in.

Results

You will be a much happier person, you will ‘live in the moment’ more.
