    If I force myself to stop thinking, I start to think about thinking about the idea of stopping to think. So I keep thinking about it until I give up on it and then I think about something else.

    Sometimes there are periods in which I cannot keep a line of thought. Even then, I am thinking but without detail and without linear patterns.

    Can one not think? Even when I think of "nothing" I'm thinking of everything... I know this does not make sense. I want to try meditation one of these day. I mean... when I'm asleep my brain is working something out, everyone dreams even if they won't remember, dreams are simply your subconscious thinking for you behind the scenes.

    The only way I can stop thinking is to get myself to think about something smaller and less important, like what I need to do today. The worst is when I'm reading blogs or forums at night about really in-depth topics and then I have to go to bed with thoughts running through my head like an endless internal monologue. That's when it takes hours to get to sleep.

    Lol yes, that. But the rest of the time I'm still thinking about all kinds of things!

    Sometimes I can stop thinking for a very short term by focusing on a very simple repetitive motion such as cleaning out my electric shaver or washing dishes. I guess I think more of my sensations when I do that, or the motion, than thinking some random thought about politics or something.

    When in sexual mode I focus on the one thing and the thinking stops...

    Also when I need to focus on some physical exercise - sport or bicycler riding, I got to pay attention to the road so any daydream could cause boom...

    Other than that I cant stop thinking for a longer period, it is just automatic and it goes on and on... No matter what the topic is, there is always something to be analysed... Sometimes it is quite terrible, especially when reading I tend to think about the new concepts and I usually stop reading... When in time pressure of deadline it can be really impractical.

    Considering our brains don't fully stop working until you die, I doubt anyone stops thinking, for instance, you essentially need to think about breathing right now.
