We have on average 60,000 thoughts a day, a lot of these thought can be simple “I need to buy bread on the way home” or “What shall I have for dinner?” but equally a lot of our thoughts can have emotions and feeling attached to them. Thoughts can make us physically and mentally ill, when we are stressed or worried we quite often get run down, headaches, sore throats and worse. Our thoughts are linked to our well-being so it is so important to be able to be aware of our thoughts and feelings that come with them.
We spend so much of our life worrying about the future but the future is only a story we make up in our head, it can’t be really, as no one can predict the future. So we make a story up in our head and then start to worry about this story coming true, or we make a nice story up, them get upset with other people and ourselves when it doesn’t come true, but no one else even knows your story, they all have their own.
