Have you noticed that many of your thoughts are useless?
Our mind stays busy with stories from the past, criticizing the present or worried about the future. And between the past, the critic and the future, we miss the present moment.
The good news is that we can teach our mind to live in the present moment. Imagine your thoughts are like those of a spoiled child catching your attention with screams and tantrums. If you pay attention to the screams and tantrums you will be reinforcing the behavior, but if you ignore it sooner or later the negative behavior will disappear. Our thoughts are the same.
When you notice that your mind is distracted by thoughts, acknowledge it and bring your attention to what you are doing right now. Choose your battles. We always have options in difficult situations: we can stay and try to change it, we can stay and accept the situation as it is, we stay and make it worse, or we can leave the situation by just and leaving. You choose.
Do not expect different results in your life when you just give excuses that you cannot change. Focus on what you have, not what you do not have. In what you focus will determine your reality. Use your strengths to achieve the changes you want.
EMDR Therapy can reduce the symptoms of fear for people suffering from phobias, panic attacks, obsessive-compulsive disorder and generalized anxiety disorder.
Remember that life is lived in the now!
