  1. Under no circumstances will you be able to” turn off thoughts in your head”, i.e. suspend the brain's processing of information in visual images and logical formulations: the unconscious process cannot be stopped.�

    It is only possible to completely withdraw this process from the zone of your attention, from the zone of awareness. To do this, you must either focus on a specific activity – physical or mental – or master the techniques of complete dispersal. These include, in particular, meditation practices, auto-training, etc.�

    Features of the work of the psyche is that in the absence of concentration produced at your will, this concentration will be arbitrary: the consciousness will focus on the most emotionally significant issue for you or will randomly jump from one to another.�

    Attention management skills are one of the areas of intellectual development.

    Therefore, my grandmother's advice “If you don't want to think about HIM, clean the house and wash the laundry” is not without reason: at least they indicate the right direction) �

    Another example from the classics:

    “You see,” he said, ” there was the moon, the queen of the landscape. We were sitting on the steps of the Museum of Antiquities, and I felt that I loved her. But I had to leave the same evening, so the case was upset. She seemed offended. Even probably offended.

    � � – Were you sent on a business trip? the girl asked.

    � � — M-yes. Like a business trip. That is, not exactly a business trip, but an urgent matter. Now I'm suffering. I suffer majestically and stupidly.

    “It's not a big deal,” the girl said, ” switch your excess energy to doing some kind of work process. Cut wood, for example. �Now there is such a current.

    “Ostap promised to switch over and,” although he did not imagine how he would replace Zosya with a wood saw, he still “felt very relieved”

    ((I. Ilf, E. Petrov, Golden Calf)

  2. Someone is difficult, someone is not. If you care, learn self-control. I can recommend that you first learn how to fall asleep “on request” using the auto-training system. It is based on removing all thoughts from your head. When the latter leaves, you sleep. Gradually, thoughtlessness can be learned to stay in the state of wakefulness. But. I was actively learning this. And Moisyn at the age of 6 told me how he quickly falls asleep there-he thinks about an elephant and then this thought weakens and he sleeps. I reached this point myself at the age of 6. I didn't tell him anything, and I didn't give him any books.�

    As soon as you master this stage, you can move on. I would advise you to start managing your emotions. It is interesting if you, then I will write.

  3. The mind completely absorbs your consciousness and turns it into its own stuffing, so you can't stop thinking.You have to take your consciousness away from the mind.Thinking cannot occur outside of consciousness, but consciousness can do without thoughts. This state of mindlessness is achieved by persistent, persistent exercise. Just as you once learned to read and write. Once you have acquired this ability which is an exceptional property you will be grateful for your efforts

  4. Depends on the cause of this condition. It can also be events that may have happened recently, or it is fears that torment the soul, or it is the imagination that paints dark pictures. The main thing is to look at things soberly.

  5. Because while a person is conscious, his brain works continuously.

    If any thought is important, then it is impossible to get rid of it.

    The problem must either be solved, or drowned out by something more important… or lose consciousness… well, for example, to get drunk until unconsciousness.

    True, there are lucky people who do not think about anything at all… morons.

  6. This can be explained by the evolutionary development of the organism. Man is a social being. Several tens of thousands of years of living in society have affected the structure of the body and brain. Areas of the brain responsible for speech and social interactions have evolved. In the process of transmitting inherited traits, people who thought a lot were more successful, and were better adapted to processing information about dangers, including dangers from other people. It was more difficult for a person who could quickly turn off thoughts to survive and pass on genes than for a person who constantly updated and solved some problems in his mind, made plans. Even reproduction itself is not an easy task, which requires solving many problems in finding a partner, mating rituals, etc. If a person turns off his thoughts, he simply does not want to go anywhere, reproduce, feed his offspring, and it is already good for him. Therefore, the brain has some minimum level of comfortable activity that forces its owner to maintain life and reproduce.�

    The human brain is like a tangled bundle of wires connected to a constantly recharging battery. The brain always has a minimum charge. If a person disconnects some of the wires, the accumulated signal will be transmitted to other wire networks. So you can't say that a person can turn off all thinking. But it can focus your mind on the right things. For example, you can neutralize disturbing thoughts if you use the areas of the brain responsible for attention. That is, you need to choose the object of concentration and keep your attention on it. For example, monitor your breathing: how the air gets in and out. This can be difficult for someone who hasn't tried it before. But for a trained person, this is easy, just as an adult walks straight without hesitation, whereas it is still difficult for a child who has just got up on his feet. Therefore, if there are moments when you want to distract yourself from disturbing thoughts, you can gradually train concentration on breathing. A short practice — 5-10 minutes, but frequent-2-3 times a day, will teach the mind to more free management of thinking. Also, this practice can help you fall asleep, adjust your mind to calmness, in cases when too much activity interferes with sleep.

    Sometimes it can be difficult to focus because words spontaneously pop up in your mind. This can be neutralized if you occupy the part of the brain responsible for speech. To do this, you can try to pronounce non-existent words of the invented language or syllables to yourself. This will create a corridor for the exit of unnecessary speech activity, but at the same time there will be no new leads for disturbing things, since the words that are thought out do not make sense. And in this way, you can also give your brain a rest.
