Mental Health Week: Thoughts as Thoughts

The mind is always thinking…Experts estimate that the mind thinks between 60,000 – 80,000 thoughts a day. That’s an average of 2500 – 3,300 thoughts per hour. With mindfulness, we do not need to control our thoughts but just observe them like clouds floating across the sky. With this insight, we can step back and be less attached to their charge and better cope when we are in difficult mind states.
