Thoughts are a part of our everyday living and can at times be difficult to control or avoid. It is believed that everyone even little children encounter some trains of thought which means that they are a common occurrence. An ordinary person might be having thoughts such as: what to cook for dinner, what needs to be done during the day, how to handle a certain situation at work and even what to eat for lunch. All these are normal and actually help us organize our lives for the better. Positive thinking is highly advocated for as it greatly contributes to overall health and well being. Our thoughts to some extent define who we are hence we should be careful of the kind that we allow in to our minds.
