Hi! When you are addressing it as troublesome that means those are negative thoughts. You can replace it with positive ones. But I will suggest you to resolve those underlying issues that are disturbing your mind. For that you can consult a counselor and take help, and you can also try out deep breathing and meditation as well. Pallabi Bose, Counseling Psychologist.

Hey! First of all, I want to appreciate your effort to seek help and take care of yourself. Any activity that you enjoy, and requires some concentration from your end would be helpful. Some examples are drawing/painting, playing an instrument, dancing, gardening, writing, playing video games. It could be anything you enjoy doing and that requires you to be actively engaged. Thus, I would not recommend things like watching TV or reading magazines as they are more passive in nature. I hope this was helpful and you could find an activity of your interest. Also, I woud add that if things get a bit tough to take care of, please do consider speaking to a professional.

Taking up hobbies and other activities to get your mind off troublesome things – will only suppress them. They will remain at the back of your mind. Worst still - you will be aware of them either consciously or subconsciously – and this will disturb you. If we want PEACE OF MIND - troublesome thoughts and issues need to be addressed and resolved to the best of our abilities. I suggest that you speak to a counsellor – he/she will help and guide you accordingly.
