Does anybody sometimes have weird thoughts randomly pop into your head?? It usually happens when im not busy, or not concentrating on anything. Like out of the blue i will just think of a random word or phrase.

Maybe i'm worrying too much about it, but is it a symptoms of anxiety?? Im sure people have this all the time, but i just think im being too sensitive about it

Thanks

Yoyoma,

You are not alone in your thought process.  I go through that too, especially when things seem idle.  I think our brain is used to being preoccupied most of the time, that it tries to find things to do when we are not doing much.

I has also happened to me in the past right before having a panic attack, but those are more racing thoughts that don't make sense.  At least when I have the thoughts during idle times, I am at peace and don't feel anxious.

I think random thoughts are normal and aren't really related to anxiety. I have random thoughts all the time and always have. Sitting at work the other day I suddenly thought:

"Wouldn't it be great if a bunch of circus clowns made a run through the office building yelling and making a lot of noise and immediately left? Wouldn't that be weird? Is there any way I can organize such a thing? Everyone would be so bewildered. That would be awesome."

How's that for random?

I would say yes, it's normal.

I agree with debaser, it seems like a perfectly normal thing to happen.
