Thoughts Per Day?

October 26, 2023

A new study from psychologists at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario reports observations of the transition from one thought to another in brain scans. Though the researchers didn’t detect the content of our thoughts, their method allowed them to count each one. Referred to as “thought worms,” the team says that the average human has 6,200 thoughts per day.
Other estimates have suggested that humans have over 70,000 thoughts per day.
I think that perhaps men have fewer thoughts, like 17 and women are more thoughtful like 70,000.
I know my wife is more thoughtful. Thinks more. Reacts more. Dwells more and does more.
Additionally, it is suggested that negative thoughts are predominant in our minds as well. Some incredibly smart people estimate that 80 percent of all thoughts are negative. Further, we don’t let stuff go and again it is estimated that 95 percent of thoughts are recurring thoughts.
Summation: Here’s where I know what I know!
• Take every thought captive, I am the commander of my thoughts, not the other way around.
• Chase off the negative junk, it probably isn’t going to happen anyway so why worry.
• Keep looking forward, don’t recycle stuff that’s in the rearview mirror. Chances are good that there’s nothing you can do about it anyway.
• Smile and be a generous listener, it will keep you from overthinking stuff!
