I have been working a lot on how thoughts are interact with addictions and ran across a very interesting statistic that expanded my mind on the power and magnitude of thoughts. A few years back the National Science Foundation estimated that a person produces nearly 50,000 thoughts a day. Isn't that incredible. I feel that this is a very important statistic to know. It helps us to understand the influence and power that our thoughts have on us. It can determine how we envision the direction of our lives and our emotional reactions. We improve our lives if we just become more mindful of the content of our thoughts.
I feel that if is very important that we discover what the content of our thoughts are because it affects our health - mentally, physically and spiritually. Here are some questions to think about. If the majority of our thoughts, over 25, 000 a day are negative, then how would that affect our reaction to the events we encounter daily? Conversely, if the majority of our thoughts were positive then what would be our reactions be?
Begin to become very mindful of the content of your thoughts. It will make all the difference in your life.
