Did you know that we each have about 65,000 thoughts a day? And that 90% of these are thoughts we had yesterday, the day before and the day before that?
Because the thoughts that run through our mind affect our decisions, behaviours and actions, it's imperative to be as mindful and aware of those thoughts as we can be.
One of the quickest ways to break negative or unhelpful thought patterns is to reframe the thoughts. In other words, to offer ourselves an alternative perspective.
