It is Monday! What was your first thought of the day?
Did you know scientists claim humans have as many as 70,000 thoughts per day? However, many of those thoughts are negative, and 90% are repeated from previous days, which lead to bad habits, and biases and do not serve us well. Many of our thoughts happen automatically.
It is essential to our health to work on our thoughts and try to keep those negative thoughts from taking over. The more negativity we have, the less our brain produces the serotonin and dopamine needed for feelings of happiness and well-being. Negativity also increases the brain’s aging process.
So if we are going to have 90% of our thoughts be repeated, why are we not focused on making those happy thoughts—today, we work to create a happy thought at least every hour of the day. We will chase out negativity!
