"Mini cupcakes? As in the mini version of regular cupcakes? Which is already a mini version of cake? Where does it end with you people" - Kevin
I attempt to play piano, yes! Actually sat down at it yesterday for the first time in months. I can't read music in the slightest so learning stuff is slow and difficult and I have to remember everything but I find I can't think about anything else while playing.
That's smart NP. If your brain is busy struggling with the music it doesn't have space for other stuff.
Yup, that's the idea! But it doesn't always work and sometimes I can do both at the same time which can be good thinking time... and also it can be a good way to externalise stuff... I might play the same song in different ways (loud, heavy, fast, slow) depending on how I feel.
That's an interesting way to look at it.
Deleting old files from your hard drive to make more space.
something I find useful is "practical daydreaming" - setting myself a little fantasy project such as planning a dream holiday, finding the costs, planning the days, everything down to how I will transport myself there..... and even if I have no intention (or resources) to actually take said holiday, I can spend a couple of hours planning it and it's like a mini-break for the mind.
I find running is a great distraction. I felt rubbish because it's a Monday morning, but during my run, I forgot all about it and after the run, I felt awesome.
Great to hear Dan! I'm not a personal fan of running but I know a few people who feel that way.
