what do you mean?

do you just mean automation?

the only solution is compensating with new, challenging
stuff

I can't. Meditation helps. Hypnosis.

I don't know about you, but I can't catch a break from my
mind.

Lots of fragmented bits and blocks that overlap each other.

i dont feel i want to put myself into the quasi sleeping
states of meditation, though i recognize that the principle
of letting things pass without reacting is essential to live

that is the only way to cut some spaces in my mind, not
opposing the flow just to recognize when i do. thats the
entrance of conditioning

without having read the link,
focusing your thoughts on your body/breathing etc..
while doing excercises, qi-gong or similar stuff. (basic
work and cleaning the house or gear can do the trick
aswell)
gives a good "rest" from the unstoppable thinking machine
the mind is. and while lots of these practices have a
positive effect on moods i find it way easier to think about
anything that i felt uneasy with before.

It really can't be stopped, because thats basiccly the
brains function, to produce thoughts. In acceptance and
commitment therapy you learn how to live with your
chattering brain, while in common CBT you learn how to
change your thoughts.
I don't know which is the better alternative, because my
problems were of emotional nature.

why is when your head hits the pillow, thats the time your
brain decides to create a thought dump, well it does for me
anyway
