Understand that your worrisome thoughts have no concrete reality to back them up.

This knowledge won’t make your worries and fear disappear, but it will help you avoid being taken in by them, and in turn, it will help you be happier.


  1. Recognize your worrisome thoughts.
    Everyone has that voice inside their head telling them all sorts of worrisome things—that they aren’t good enough, that they should engage in self-destructive behaviors, etc. The next time you hear this, pause, and recognize it.
  2. Understand that these thoughts are not necessarily a reflection of reality.
    These thoughts are just quantum bursts of psychic energy that exist solely in your head, and are not always based on reality. They may not be irrational, but they aren’t necessarily true, either.
  3. Do not indulge these thoughts.
    This kind of behavior will never be helpful.


I like thinking of these thoughts as quantum bursts of energy as they can be very sudden. My previous reminder was 'a thought is just a thought' but this captures the activeness of a thought
