It's all in the mind

I fell upon this cool take on how we should manage our minds:

“How do you manage the unending stream of thoughts that flow through your mind? Do you put a comma, an exclamation mark or a queue of questions? Why not apply a full-stop and begin to master your mind.”


  1. That's great! If we were all more aware of our internal dialogue, we might change it to something a bit more positive and life-affirming too.

  2. That's a lifelong task. It is exhausting being subjected to all the white noise of endless, mostly fruitless, mind-chatter. Have been trying to just breathe, the first baby step of meditation. For the nano-second or two when I do just b-r-e-a-t-h-e, it's so peaceful.

  3. It's definitely a lifelong task but it all starts with one small step and all that...
