Imagine having over 50,000 thoughts per day?

Reading on how to better my coping skills with stress, anxiety etc...

It is something interesting and awesome to learn by reading that book entitled, 'Mind Over Mood', that it was mentioned that a person actually experiences over 50,000 thoughts per day and went on to say, it would be impossible to record all of those individual thoughts, but they seem to happen either on a conscious level or unconscious one.

I have to say, if I was able to track down all those thoughts, it would be enough to fill volumes!

Here is a link to another article that has more to say on this subject, The Huffington Post:


So, if you ever think you have trouble remembering it might be just that you have too many thoughts crowding in your brain to focus on one single thought.

I think as I have grown older, the number of thoughts has reduced. But it's still a lot!

Quality surpasses quantity. But, yes, I'm always interested in thinking and experiencing. Maybe that will help me miss the Alzheimer's Train?

I don't think you have less thoughts, more like you have more because isn't it logical to think that, over time we accumulate more and more everything, including weight gain. lol.

Using your mind is like exercise for the brain. I hope you never have serious memory loss ever Vincent. I know it runs in my family and for that reason I feel like I am likely to have less thoughts as time goes by, but so far this is not so. I try hard to keep my mind sharp.

Two ways to keep the mind sharp: Switch hands. Do tasks with your opposite hand. Become ambidextrous. Another: learn a new language.
