A (very short) “counselling session” by the American stand up comedian and actor Bob Newhart. Do watch it!
I came across this video while learning thought stopping techniques. Seriously, sometimes I think this is simply and exactly what some people need.
Notice the thought and stop the thought, accept whatever you are feeling, focus on the present, use your sensation, pay attention to the external environment (as opposed to the internal), and do what you want to do!
Remember, only present exists! Everything else is only in your mind.
Also remember, you can’t stop the thoughts from popping up, but you can decide how you react to them!
