I've started to meditate. If I feel that my mind's just buzzing with random thoughts (and I don't have much else to do), I'll just lie down wherever I am and stare at something, listen to something, or concentrate on something until I'm feeling calmer. It's a little hard to do it for a long time - stuff starts to ache or itch or distract me, but that'll get better with more meditation.

BTW, forgive me if this sounds lame to anyone. I'm only saying that because that's what I used to constantly think of other people on my friends list who were also doing similar things.

I recommend you try doing it while standing for long periods, 10+ minutes. But do it outdoors - inside the room will start feeling very hot and you get faint and dizzy.

really, that implies you calmed down to the point you went parasympathetic, your blood pressure decreased and BAM, no oxygen to the brain!

Man, it's been too long since I've done that. I'll pick it up again, maybe I'll remember how to concentrate.

Also, counting your breaths is a really good way to make your brain focus

I sitll do it when I'm really stressed out. It's a great thing to know how to do.
