Don’t believe every thought

The thoughts you think can cause you clarity or anxiety.

The key to clarity is to learn how to manage your thoughts instead of being led by them.

Much of our anxiety is due to our unmanaged thoughts about the situation, and not so much the situation itself. Whether it’s obsessing about politics, focusing on world problems, or concerns about a future that isn’t here yet, many of our thoughts are simply ideas, opinions, beliefs or philosophical points of view.

You can’t stop thinking thoughts, but you can stop believing every thought that you think. If any thought makes you feel bad, challenge it.
Remind yourself that just because you think something doesn’t necessarily mean it’s true.
When you notice a negative or repetitive thought, say to yourself, “Thanks for sharing,” then decide to shift your attention.

To your clarity,
