    Default Ever wish you had a brain ON/OFF switch?

    Since I was a kid I can remember wanting one so bad!


    Clarification.... In a chill out, relax and stop thinking so much kinda way.....usually to go to sleep....when you are wanting to go to sleep, but you cant because your brain is still going 200 mph on something and wont cooperate.

    You always get what you settle for.

    Why in the world would you ever want your brain OFF? Without your nervous system regulating your body, you'd die almost instantaneously.

    On a non-literal note, why discard one of your greatest assets, if even temporarily?
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    OK, to clarify..... In a chill out, relax and stop thinking so much kinda way.....or to go to sleep....when you are wanting to go to sleep, but you cant because your brain is still going 200 mph on something and wont cooperate.

    Nope, never. Well, almost never.

    I live in a mind of one thought to another to five more and so on. I wouldn't give it up for the world. Doesn't matter what I am thinking about, as long as I am thinking, I'm happy.

    Yeah, I know what you mean. Punching the walls (or your head) won't help either.

    I find it helps to just do some breathing exercises. That is, take slow, deep breaths and focus on it. Eventually, the thoughts dissapate, although that doesn't necessarily guarantee sleep.

    Yeah, that would be good, because it's probly been set to "off" all this time.
