Did you know that the average human brain generates 45 thoughts per minute?

Did you know that the average human brain generates 45 thoughts per minute?

Some studies have estimated that the average person has around 50,000 to 70,000 thoughts per day, translating to roughly 35 to 48 thoughts per minute if evenly distributed throughout the waking hours. That’s quite the amount…

The content and nature of our thoughts can vary widely depending on many factors, including our individual experiences, emotions, and environment. Some of the most common types of thoughts that humans have include:

  • Worries and concerns: Many people spend a significant amount of time thinking about things they are worried or anxious about, such as their job, relationships, or health. These worries could easily become a major source of stress, tension, and cause of exhaustion for the mind and the physical body.

  • Planning and problem-solving: Thinking about practical matters such as planning for the future, making decisions, and figuring out how to solve problems or challenges we may be facing. These thoughts are crucial in achieving our goals and navigating the challenges of daily life.

  • Memories and reflections: Humans often reflect on past experiences, replay memories, or analyze their thoughts and feelings.

  • Fantasies and daydreams: Some thoughts are more imaginative and involve fantasizing about things that are not currently present or daydreaming about possible future scenarios.

  • Social interactions: Thinking about their relationships with others, social interactions, and how they are perceived by others.

“The human mind is like a butterfly, flitting from flower to flower, never settling in one place.”

You might not always be aware of this ceaseless thinking in your everyday life. Much of this thinking is an automatic process, a mental habit. It is only when you need to focus on something specific that you become aware of the many thoughts vying for your attention and distracting your focus.

How can you calm down these nonstop chatters in your mind?

  • Practice deep breathing: Taking slow, deep breaths can help you feel more grounded and present. Try taking a few deep breaths and focusing on the sensations of your breath as it enters and exits your body.

  • Engage your senses: Focusing on your senses can help you stay present at the moment. Take a moment to notice the sights, sounds, smells, and physical sensations around you.

  • Write down your thoughts: Writing down your thoughts can be a helpful way to process them and release them from your mind. You can also use journaling to reflect on your experiences and cultivate gratitude for the present moment.

  • Engage in mindfulness activities: Activities such as yoga, tai chi, or mindful walking can help you stay focused on the present moment and cultivate a sense of calm and relaxation.

  • Try Mendi: Mendi Neurofeedback training, with consistent training, your ability to focus, and filter thoughts will improve.
