Marci Shimoff: "Scary Mind Math & ANTs"

“ Our minds--made up of our thoughts, beliefs, and self-talk--are always “on.” According to scientists, we have about 60,000 thoughts a day. That’s 1 thought per second during every waking hour. No wonder we’re so tired at the end of the day!

And what’s even more startling is that of those 60,000 thoughts, 95 percent are the same thoughts you had yesterday, and the day before, and the day before that. Your mind is like a record player playing the same record over and over again... Talk about being stuck in a rut...

Still, that wouldn’t be so bad if it weren’t for the next statistic:
for the average person, 80 percent of those habitual thoughts are negative.
That means that every day most people have more than 45,000 negative thoughts...
Dr. Daniel Amen, a world-renowned psychiatrist and brain imaging specialist, calls them 'automatic negative thoughts', or 'ANTs'."
