Learn this one thing, and life becomes yours

Be in control

The one thing

How to get inside your mind

Metacognition

  • Ask yourself questions.
  • Watch your reactions to external events.
  • When you’re engaging in something, reflect on why you’re doing it.
  • Have a debate with yourself.
  • Listen to your internal voice.

Meditation

  • If you’re new to meditation, search for guided meditation on YouTube. This will be your simplest choice.
  • Or, you can sit down and focus on your breath. When you drift away in thoughts, simply direct your focus back at your breath again. This is what I usually do.

Journaling

  • Write about what’s on your mind or how you’re feeling.
  • Write about what happened today. What was good? What was bad?
  • Ask questions that you’ll answer.
