Do negative thoughts steal away your mental focus? Research shows that more than 90% of the thoughts we think each day are repetitive and negative. Imagine freeing up your mental focus to allow positive thoughts.
You might not consider your negative thoughts as thieves. In fact, negative thoughts may steal away some of the best moments of your life. Consider the time and attention negative thoughts take away from each day of your life. In this week's series, you'll explore how to release these thieves.
This week, you'll be exploring non-stealing, from Pantanjali's Yoga Sutras. This is part of a collection of meditation series focused on honoring the way you live your life. You'll focus on truthfulness to help cultivate a calmer, kinder approach to the problems in the world today.
