12- How to Deal with Overwhelming Thoughts?
Today's question is from a college sophomore who asks, “How can I deal with all the thoughts that keep popping into my head? There’s so much I’m trying to figure out right now and I just want a brain break!”
I’m so glad you’re realizing you need this now instead of waiting until you’re further along in training or your career and totally burned out. There are many ways of dealing with all the thoughts but I’ll tell you some of the things that I do. These are what I recommend to my kids, who are in 4th and 7th grade, and to the medical students I teach. They are what I use every week to keep myself sane and happy.
