So I've been practicing AB/DL stuff for a while now, but regression remains something of a riddle to me. I'm not sure I've ever really experienced it, but I have a strong desire to.
My everyday state of mind is exceptionally difficult to shut down, and tends to be very hyper-aware and analytical. This is good sometimes, but it's fairly annoying when you just want to put aside your worries and cares. I also can be very self-conscious and harsh towards myself, and wearing diapers or otherwise trying to engage my little sometimes wakes up this negativity.
What I want to do is just get to a point where I can be comfortable letting go of my adult responsibilities and thought patterns for a while and switch them out for simpler ones. I'm not quite sure how to do this... If I just, say, color or play with Hot Wheels for long enough, will I gradually just slip past the point of thinking too much about it into a state where it's natural? Is there anything people find helpful in practicing/easing into regression, and/or shutting down hyperawareness and negativity?
