Sooner, your consciousness will pay attention to itself and you will open to yourself a new exciting world of inner hidden feelings and emotions.
Put Away Your Phone

Remember: while you spend your time in front of the screen, your life passes by!
Turn Off Everything

Shortly saying, they are engaged in those things that we all want to do, but perennially postpone.
Buy a Good Pair of Headphones
If you cannot completely get rid of the environment noise, then at least try to seclude yourself from it. A good pair of headphones and your favorite music in the player is the best way that will help you feel calm.
