A friend of mine pointed out to me today that i really just think way too much and that i needed to find my "thing". Something i can do that helps me calm down and clear my mind.<br><br>
So i was wondering what is your thing?

<i>.....Resist the urge, Dan, resist the urge</i><br><br>
Seriously....As strange as it might sound, running seems to do that for me.

Now, now, Dan....cut him some slack.<br><br>
Jon, for me it is running also. NO tunes...just me, the feet hitting the pavement/trail and the peace and quiet.

I'm sorry if it appeared that I was making fun of you, Snowboy.<br><br>
I'm not.<br><br>
And that's what I do too, Todd.<br><br>
No tunes, just thoughts.<br><br>
Sometimes I think about all sorts of stuff, sometimes nothing.<br><br>
But I always feel better when I'm done.<br><br>
Both physically and mentally.

On the other hand, "practicing my faith", or whatever the hell I meant there, is often not calming. It is rather <i>enflaming</i>.<br><br>
Anyway...

That sounds dangerous!!! <img alt="uhoh2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/uhoh2.gif"><br><br>
For me - lately, it's computer Scrabble. That's when I unplug, use the part of my brain that thinks up great letter combinations, not the part that worries about things.

Those are good "things," snowboy. And it seems like you're starting to get into the snowboard designing, so it'll be cool to see where you go with that in the future.

Not to hijack the thread...but who else 'talks' to themselves while they run. Do you carry on a conversation with your inner self?<br><br>
I try to talk things out, work out frustrations/problems and get my day in order. I run in the predawn hours so it is MY time out there to clear my mind and clear the air, so to say.

I find a prefrontal lobotomy helps with the overthinking thing.<br><br><img alt="" src="http://overthehedge.amd.com/images_en/4.2C1.jpg" style="border:0px solid;">

In all honesty...photography, probably.<br><br>
It is the only time I can every get truly outside of myself.<br><br>
And sex. Sex works too.<br><br><img alt="razz.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/razz.gif">

You like art right? Maybe you should focus on that right now.<br><br>
In general it sounds like you want more going on in your life so get out, take some classes for fun, look for a job even semi related to art (art store or something of that sort).
