Adult Coloring Books are a great way to keep your mind off of your rapid thoughts. I personally have tried the adult coloring books and it was fun. However, because I have low attention span I got bored and went to something. For example, crocheting
crochetingis something that I use to do all the time, to pass time by and to self sooth myself from my anxiety.
yoga is also a great way to relieve your stress and anxiety. I would go to the gym and take their yoga classes. However if you can not afford to join a gym there are yoga videos that you can buy and try it at home. If you are like me, you will absolutely love doing Yoga.
