  • Try writing your thoughts down, like journal or even a blog. It can really help to get it all on paper. It lets your mind ease up and relise we can go back to it later- it's all right there.

  • Get off CM, turn off the TV, find an interesting book. If you don't commit yourself to that time- 15 minutes, hour, whatever - all you're thinking of is what you should be doing & what to do next.

  • I always enjoy turning off everything and listening to soothing music like Chris Botti while reading. If that doesn't work maybe take some time before picking up your book to reflect on everything.
