How many thoughts a day do we have?
Researchers say there are approximately 50,000 – 70,000 thoughts a day!
That’s a lot of thoughts. What a shame we’re not getting paid for every thought we have!
Whether we know the correct number or not it definitely is showing us we think lots of thoughts daily.
According to some researchers 98% of our thoughts are exactly the same as the day before.
Talk about creatures of habit!
Thoughts today… Story tomorrow. Our thoughts today are creating our experience tomorrow. Same thoughts lead to same experience. This is definitely worth looking into a bit more.
If I’m going to be taking 98% of my thoughts today into tomorrow, then I better become aware of what thoughts I’m carrying around with me. Everywhere I go… So do my thoughts!
Are they helpful thoughts?
Do they uplift or tear down? (myself included)
Are these the thoughts I want to be experiencing tomorrow?
Do I want to hang out with these thoughts?
Do I need to entertain these thoughts or can I let them go?
So many questions come up. No doubt you have your own questions that come up too.
For me, knowing this information now has made me realise how important it is that I am aware of what thoughts I am thinking. If the thoughts make me feel happy and content then by all means continue, for they will be coming with me tomorrow.
If they are not, then well done, they are no longer running on autopilot. You are now aware of it and can make a conscious choice to keep it or let it go. Just know though, whatever you choose, will be going with you
We all are faced with that choice daily.
We are all leading in the same direction… To be happy.
Our happiness may look different from others but the feeling is very much the same.
I believe it is worth my attention to watch my thoughts for today, for they are my experiences tomorrow.
