Where are your thoughts taking you?

Have you ever con­tem­plate what affect your thoughts are hav­ing on your well– being? Con­sider Deepak Chopra MD’s remark, “The aver­age human thinks about 16,000 thoughts a day, but 90% of today’s thoughts are the same ones we had yes­ter­day.” We almost become ‘addicted’ to our thoughts.
