Apr 28, 2008
Do you have obsessive thoughts that stop you from doing things? Obsessive thoughts usually start out very small then builds at a rate where you feel you are mentally crippled for the day. They usually make you miserable and everyone around you (especially your loved ones) miserable after they spend some time with you. Obsessive thoughts are so threatening to the anxiety sufferer that it can stop you from being productive until they go away. In other words you are rendered useless because you can't focus on any of your projects at work or in your personal life. If you know this situation too well, I'm here to tell you there are ways to deal with them.

The best thing to do is focus on something else to clear your mind. To help you clear your mind when treating obsessive thoughts, try the following to get you moving forward again.

Usually and being obsessed with a thought has to do with a problem (or something becomes a problem for you). Talking through your thoughts and problems is a great way to calm the chatter in your head. If you have a loved one or a close friend that you trust try talking to them about what's bothering you, that's a good support system to have. Talking to some one you trust is more productive for you because you can have a very open conversation. Also, you don't have to be worried about talking though a problem.

The next thing to consider is to start taking up reading. As we all know reading has many benefits. One of those benefits is reading can help you with treating your obsessive thoughts caused by your anxiety disorder. Reading a book will take your mind off the things that worry you. In other words, getting into a book is the ultimate distraction from obsessive thoughts. Plus it's easy to do. All you have to do is pick up a book and start reading. Always keep a book within your reach and you have a way to change focus whenever you need too.

The next suggestion I would like to discuss is also very simple to do. All you need to do is stop what you are currently doing and start breathing. Breathing is a great way to clear your mind of all the chatter. Where ever you are at, get comfortable and focus on your breathing. The first thing you need to do is stop taking in new information. Shut off the radio or TV, turn off the computer monitor and start clearing your mind. Do what ever you can to break your pattern. Start taking in more air with each breath and think about releasing your thoughts each time you exhale.

So if obsessing over thoughts is becoming a too much of a problem for you, using the suggestions described above will help you out a lot. Talking out problems and taking the focus off your thought by reading a book or breaking your daily routine for a little while will help you move forward from all the chatter.
