Remember that stress doesn’t come from what’s going on in your life. It comes from your thoughts about what’s going on in your life
Andrew J. Bernstein
January 16 - watch your thoughts
You are today where your thoughts have brought you, you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.
When it comes to health and well being our thoughts matter. Our thoughts drive our energy and actions which creates our reality. When you feel great you will pick up the phone and call a friend. When you are feeling down you just want to curl up and zone out.
Controlling our minds especially in times of stress will help reduce our fears, anxiety and stress. The key is to observe our thoughts without attachment. For example, a random though may be that I’m going to catch this virus, is so contagions. Your emotional reaction might be fear , anxiety and letting your thoughts loose. On the other hand, if you observed that thought without attachment you’d say, is that true?No it’s possible but I’m taking recommended precautions so it’s highly unlikely.
When we believe our thoughts instead of what is really true for us, we experience all kinds of emotional distress . We are not our thoughts, our mind is like like a narrator that comments on what is going on around you. The thoughts that spontaneously occur is mostly negative Watching your thoughts will help you to manage negative emotions and feelings. Best to keep it simple Don’t overthink it . Smile and laugh for a mood boost. Above all else think good thoughts !
I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to thing, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to rea, and all the friends I want to see.
