There are times that our thoughts take over and our mind gets out of control. We end up obsessing about people, places and things with no way to stop. Not only does this take us out of the moment, but it is absolutely exhausts us.
Sometimes we feel guilty about our thoughts. Remember, a thought is not the same as an action.
When the mind complicates things, we need a simple antidote to help us.
Next time your mind gets out of control, try this:
Say to yourself: “It’s just a thought” or “Thinking”
This will help bring you back to the moment so you can get centered. You might find you need to remind yourself of this often throughout the day!
