Your mind is not the boss of you. And it doesn’t always tell the truth. Its job is to catalog information, form opinions, and make plans. It can be a workaholic.
Sometimes you just need to hit the pause button. Free yourself from the endless cycle of thinking by taking a walk, observing nature, or just taking one full deep breath.
In mindful presence,
To know that we are not our thoughts is the first step toward freedom. —Stephen Cope
