How many happy thoughts do you have every day?
The average human mind is estimated to have between fifty and one hundred thousand thoughts per day, and studies have suggested that as many as 40% can be “negative”, such as fears, worries or stress etc.
Instead of trying to suppress these thoughts, if you can catch your mind thinking negatively, we can use this awareness that some negative thought has occurred naturally, and then consciously follow it with a positive one! Any positive thought whatsoever! A quick thought of thanks for something pleasant in your life, or acknowledging feelings of love for others?
Maybe with practice you could unlock an extra +40,000 positive thoughts every day!
Walter Anderson said this on the matter: “Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilised by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have — life itself.”
