Ultimately, I recognize that I’m in charge of everything in my head.  However, sometimes a bout of painful and unhelpful thinking is hard to shake.  When this is the case, I don’t have to strong-arm it.  I can just borrow someone else’s healthy thinking until I’m ready to give it another go.

My favorite way of doing this is listening to happy music, audiobooks or podcasts, because it allows me to simultaneously apply my hands to some task.  Positive thinking accompanied by physical accomplishment (exercise, tidying up the house, running errands) packs a powerful one-two wallop to the dark cloud of doom and gloom.  You’ll wind up with a new outlook and some items checked off your to-do list — both potent destressors and motivators.

On My Playlist This Week:

Audiobooks:

Podcasts:

Happy Working Songs

Of course, you don’t have to limit yourself to audio.  An encouraging book or a good comedy is another great way to disrupt mournful mental meandering.  But my favorite method of detoxing my brain includes pushed up sleeves or running shoes along with a voice from outside of my own head.
