Get rid of the obsession
So life has turned into no joy. At night, do not sleep: overcome by anxious forebodings, obsessive thoughts about evil.
In the morning – a state of weakness and frequent sticky fears. Happy: the inability to concentrate on work, expecting problems at any time. In the night before going to bed, a premonition of agonizing insomnia.
Dark thoughts are spinning in the head, leading a person to complete nervous and even physical exhaustion.
Despair is not worth it. Before getting rid of negative thoughts, you must recognize the fact of having an obsession.
This will be the first step to get rid of him, although the fight is long.
- First, you must separate yourself from your obsessions, to realize: I am not the one who goes through bad and painful thoughts in my head. This makes my obsession. By accepting his condition, he will stop punishing himself for bad thoughts.
- The next stage is to lower the value of bad thoughts. For this it is important to understand: the state of fear and fear has nothing to do with reality. Stress and anxiety are the result of biochemical processes of the brain, a product of thought and not of events in the surrounding reality.
- Since the person is fixed, it is necessary to refocus. It is important to find something good, positive, something you love, and learn to focus on it. This stage is comparable to the development of new good habits and will require patience and will.
Gradual struggle with obsessions.
The observance of the daily regime is important: it helps to change the attention to reality. To do this, try to create rituals, for example, the ritual of falling asleep.
For example, you like to walk in the fresh air. It is necessary to determine the time in which you will do a night walk. Get ready: exactly at eight o’clock at night I go for a walk before going to bed.
By itself, exercise will give extra fatigue, help saturate the body with oxygen. Walk carefully, focus on your movements, for example, count the steps.
Pay attention to the details: how is the weather today? Does the wind blow? What is covered in the park?
What color are the leaves, the clouds? Try to remember your favorite poems and songs about nature.
Concentration on the positive aspects of reality will accelerate the outflow of annoying thoughts.
If you like water, then the second ritual can be a shower or a bath before going to bed. Water is important for people, not only for body hygiene: its properties can be used for relaxation.
It is important that the water temperature is comfortable, not too hot or cold. Immersion in a warm bath will remind the subconscious of the absolute state of the baby in the uterus, in the amniotic fluid.
This is a state of peace and security: there is no need to fight for life and its quality, not worry about the future.
You can add essential oils to the bath with a calming effect, but remember that the doses of the essential oils are calculated in drops, their effect is quite strong. Effectively relieves the nervous system of chamomile, lavender, lemon balm, sage, bergamot, jasmine, cedar, basil, geranium, patchouli, incense and valerian oil.
In addition to lemon, mandarin or grapefruit oils, but it is important to ensure that you are not allergic to these citrus fruits.
Stand under the shower, direct the current up and down towards the head. Imagine how the negative and fatigue are washed.
Tell yourself: I wash all the bad things to accept the good.
After bathing or showering, drink herbal tea before picking up, or pick up if you like. Let it be fragrant, not strong or hot.
Enjoy every sip! After that you can go to bed.
It is important to follow the regimen and go to bed every day at the same time so that the brain adapts to sleep in advance.

Thoughts before bedtime
