How is everything right here advised. However: under no circumstances allow yourself to be simply forgotten. The problem, leaving consciousness, will go into the depths of the psyche and over time will spoil real life without the ability to understand the reason. The problem must be worked out. If you have strength, then by yourself: to observe it, when and in what situations it hurts, where it manifests itself in the body. Coordinate the work of the body and mind, if possible, without emotionally analyzing your reactions. When it's really bad to switch to your favorite activities. Do not forget about movement, whatever, here a lot of options are offered. And the confidence that it will pass, because "this too is passing." If you don't have the strength to work on your own, run to a specialist!

Adrenaline. A lot of. Jump on rope jumping, go for a ride on the map, for the absolutely desperate they came up with a hang glider and a parachute.

Generally - emotions. Go somewhere, to a new place, try a new one, go to a concert. Try new things constantly.

Do what you like. Go to the ice rink, go skiing, read books, sing, dance, do your favorite sports.

Fall in love.

Well, running helped me a lot. I just got off the couch, put on my sneakers and ran down the sidewalk along the main street to distract myself. After an hour of jogging at a very slow pace, my head was as empty as a drum. This is a real sensation in the head, like in a freshly ventilated room. Not a single thought. Then we went for more or less regular jogging, then I wanted some result, then I bought running shorts, T-shirts, sneakers, sports watches. The internet was shoveled for correct running technique, injury avoidance, training plans, etc. In total, after half a year I ran my first half marathon (21.1 km) at the Moscow half marathon. Now I'm thinking about the total marathon distance of 42.2 km. Running is a great way to disconnect from reality, a kind of meditation. And I have heard this opinion from many amateur runners.

I have already written about travel, I can only add that it is not necessary to go far, it is better to travel to familiar places with pleasant memories. In principle, a country house is suitable. And there you can already read and engage in creativity or a hobby. The main thing is that no one distracts.

Collect Lego or puzzle.

First, you need to find out what you want to forget about)

And so, any emotions quite well help to distract, and it doesn't matter at all, negative or vice versa

"Pret" cinema? Run there. Books, karting, rope jumping, in short, anything that makes you feel

Answer 8

Computer games.

Their gameplay variety and number of genres is amazing. Nowadays, a lot is invested in solid projects, a good game is like a good book or a movie, various simulators can be compared with sports, the effect is similar (even in terms of real movements - kinect to help). Many will say that this is a stupid waste of time, but it is as stupid as wasting time watching a TV series or drinking with your homies. A separate topic is online games, especially with friends.

For beginners, I would recommend games like "interactive cinema", for example, products from Telltale Games. Or simple casual blunt games on any mobile platform.

Answer 9
May, 2021

Start writing stories.

Sounds like complete nonsense, but sometimes it helps more than reading books. In the book you are reading, you may not find something "of your own", but when you yourself become an author, you are able to put on a sheet of paper a thought that will help you to some extent realize yourself, as well as create your own small alternative reality.)

Answer 10

That feeling when there was everything from this list (except for games). True, then I realized that it was not an option. I forgot when I started my studies and hobbies. It helps.

You just need to keep yourself busy. But so that 24/7. Get your hands or your head, you must be busy all day! Sports are great too.

It's also good to communicate a lot with someone. No need to grind about the person you want to forget. Everything else is yes.

Don't be afraid to meet new people. And these are not outbred connections, but simply new people. They will not ask you about your past, because they don’t know what was there.

I also began to remember only bad things. So I began to hate my ex-girlfriend (I hope she doesn't read this: D) and it became easier to forget, but the way is strange. Well, the funny thing is, as I did not try to forget forever about the existence of this person, we got back together.

1. Creativity (fine and decorative). If you have a taste and a disposition, developing a skill, you can earn money.

2. Art. Visiting theaters, museums, photo and art galleries, concerts.

3. Literature. You are reading? What genres do you like? What have you wanted to read for a long time, but there were still reasons to postpone them until an indefinite moment? This moment has come!

3.Sport. Extreme, fitness, healthy lifestyle. Bungee jump, parachute, try rope jumping, snowboarding, diving.

4. Various seminars on psychology, art. Pick a topic that you want to understand or already understand to keep the discussion going.

5. New acquaintances. Directly connected with attending lectures on various topics of interest to you - you will find like-minded people if you do not dwell on problems.

6.Shopping (do not overdo it);

7.Change your image (do not overdo it ). This includes a hairstyle, and a change of style, piercings, tattoos, if you really wanted to, but did not dare.

8. Tourism. Acquaintance with the traditions of different nations and peoples, architecture, cuisine, etc. Make a plan of travel, expenses, grab a camera. If not, buy.

9.Collecting. May come along with your travels.

10. Find a match for yourself. It's easy to say, of course, but as soon as this happens, a new streak will begin in your life. Choose from the list what you like, and acquaintances with various people will not keep you waiting. Maybe communication with new people will acquire new colors, and there it is not far from relations.

A couple of ways from this list will be enough for you. Something will get bored - the list did not end there. The main thing is not to be lazy, so as not to be overcome by thoughts. Good luck! I believe in you)

Read the answers to zekweschen :) At first you are just interested, then you get involved, and at the end you completely give yourself up to this occupation and already know how to cook bananas, where to find the most interesting places in Moscow and what life is like in the DPRK.

Engage in monotonous and moderate physical labor. Another option is to go wherever they look until fatigue overcomes. Then - go to bed. For those who are especially major, I recommend shopping, spa treatments and a visit to a psychotherapist.

Answer 14
May, 2021

Sport helps me a lot. And not some kind of rocking chair, but a specific sport (in my case rock climbing + extreme I get and generally excellent). After training, great mood and moral satisfaction, increased self-esteem. I don’t remember a single case when training didn’t help me. This is perhaps the most effective method.

But sometimes there is no way to go to training, then you can walk with friends or meet new people. Maybe you would like to talk better with someone you know?

You can sit on the windowsill and read a book alone under a warm blanket.

You can go to the balcony on the top floor, play your favorite song and enjoy the sunset.

You can take your guitar and leave to play and sing in a secluded place.

You can watch a movie.

You can play funny music and dance.

You can take the train and leave in an unknown direction.

You can find adventure.

There are many options, but sports help me the most.

  1. Go to bed ... Yes, just push yourself.

  2. Absorb food, good, carnal and spiritual, with headphones, and / or re-reading your favorite author.

  3. Take a piece of paper and a pencil and let your Self do the rest.

  4. Change the setting: take a new route, go on a hike, to a master class, to a new cafe, take a long-distance train.

  5. Bath, it helps, tired body affects your mood.

  6. Sleep again)

Answer 16

Travel. If there is no one with whom you are ready to leave, go alone, meet new people, develop. Not necessarily abroad. Even a trip to another city helps a lot (I know from myself).

Start doing sports or outdoor activities, running in the morning. Draw whatever you want, listen to music that can cheer you up.

In fact, you just need to understand that we have one life, and we need to enjoy every moment.

Moreover, it's summer now, there are so many opportunities)

Good luck!

Immediately, now, start digging into a good book. The books of Borges, Hesse, Eco, if it is easier and with greater expediency: start reading Leskov or Pasternak deeply. The result will not be long in coming: you will switch your experiences to what is happening in these books. These states are not meaningless, they will help you acquire important mental skills in life, make you think much wider, more tolerant, more graceful and ... calmer.

If you have some kind of creative vocation: playing music or visual arts art, at worst photography - set a goal in the coming week to surprise and delight yourself with the result of your creativity: learn or compose a simple piece of music, draw a meaningful deep picture in an artistic language you understand. Thus, you can even hypothetically discover your most ingenious side - this is how masterpieces appear in art, do not forget.

Try to find a person to whom you can sometimes talk about everything and listen to him in response as carefully. It may be a friend, or it may be a complete stranger on the net. Strange, but this will help you a lot - you will "see the world from another window" and you will understand that your own nooks and crannies of hopelessness are just invented by you, the world always remains open for any of your expectations: love, happiness, creative bliss and kind, sincere friendship. Without any vulgar motivational formulas pulled from Osho. The world is beautiful if you want to know and love it more and more.

Answer 18
May, 2021

Work, creativity (your own \ someone else's), travel, sports, religion, any fascinating, albeit meaningless business (to collect St. Isaac's Cathedral from beer bottle caps, and exclusively from "baltika" \ collect all the garbage in the area, and at night to drag to the door of the council). Do you know what? This city needs a hero for a long time! Dress up in a latex suit and go out into the night streets to rescue people and beat criminals. Just kidding. But only about the last option. Learn to knit.
