You are not your thoughts! This is the fundamental insight that weaves its way through Just a Thought: A No-Willpower Approach to Overcome Self-Doubt and Make Peace with Your Mind, a new book by life coach and psychologist Amy Johnson. Imagine we can learn to transcend unhelpful and noisy thoughts and focus our awareness onto something quieter and deeper. This is true peace of mind and its accessible to everyone.
In this conversation we discuss:
- What it means to make peace with your mind;
- Tuning into the common, universal struggle we all have with our thoughts;
- If we’re not the mind, what or who are we;
- How we learn to watch the mind;
- How to take our thoughts less seriously, or at least have them be less triggering;
- How does this process help us become more resilient.
