How to Get out of Your Own Head - Deepstash
The Mind’s GPS Memory

The mind recalls old memories when it visits a certain place(usually where we used to be as kids) in amazing detail. Our memory banks contain so much information that we don’t even know exists, until it gets triggered by a certain location, food, smell or music.

The association mechanism of the mind unlocks the ‘memory locker’ with odd, awkward and embarrassing memories that are stuck inside. We don’t have control over what memory pops up!

  • Though thoughts are about real things, they themselves are just thoughts, sensations and hallucinations with no substance. 
  • We don’t need to engage with every thought and get carried away to the next associative thought, drowning in the thought spiral.
  • It is a good idea to treat thoughts like TV noise coming from a different room, something you can easily ignore
  • Do not act or get emotionally attached to the constant stream of thoughts all the time, giving your mind some rest.
