Four Steps to Filter Out Thoughts And Ideas

  1. Stay grounded and in the present moment.
  2. Be self-aware, identifying and recognizing your thoughts, feelings and emotions in real time.
  3. Let your awareness discriminate between artificial and real, right or wrong, keeping a critical and objective mindset.
  4. Recognize that your thought is just a thought. We can let go of all the glitz, fear and drama for the moment.

Practising mindfulness sharpens our self-awareness skills, keeping us in the present moment.

The Alternative To Absolutes: The Gray Area

Many of us are practising all-or-nothing thinking, believing that the world is in absolute terms, and assuming that something that is not completely black or white has negative connotations or is murky and confusing.

The often-resisted gray areas, where the answers are not certain, quick or clear, are paradoxically the very places that one can start to experience peace and contentment, and minimize anxiety.
