Busy mind? Learn how to work with distracting thoughts

How to work with distracting thoughts…

Has this scenario happened to you? ​​​​​​​

You are going about your day and you notice you are on a negative thought train and you keep repeating it over and over again.

  • “I don’t like ……about my job.”

The concept of a new year can bring promise and sometimes a sense of not being content with what we have. Our mind is naturally inclined toward the negative and as a result we may focus on what needs to be fixed or what isn’t going well in our lives. We can bring an energy of discontentment into the New Year and with it a feeling of pressure. Have you ever heard yourself think, “This is the year that I have to…exercise more, meet the man/woman of my dreams, land that dream job, etc.”

The New Year is an opportunity to grow and develop new qualities that will more closely align with the kind of person we want to be and the life we want to be living.… READ MORE...
