Buddhists would advise us to let go of thought, judgment, bias and just live in the moment, mind empty, free, aware.
.
.
60,000 thoughts we average daily. Which ones should I value, which ones should I ignore?
.
.
Well, we need to start slow, let go of all the negative, unworthy thought first.
.
.
The first step is awareness. Become aware of your thoughts, not engage them or grasp.
.
.
Maybe write down every negative thought we encounter today.
.
.
Can you look at a negative thought without being impacted?
.
.
You can with practice!
.
.
Start with one negative thought.
.
.
Simplicity and persistence are keys to success.
.
.
It is simple, not easy but doable.
