If there is a battle going on in your mind, it usually means trouble. Whether it\u2019s anxiety about workload, priorities, that next promotion, favouritism or fear of rejection, everyone struggles with internal chatter which is almost always negative. Controlling these negative thoughts is not easy.\n\n\u201cAll healthy human beings have an inner stream of thoughts and feelings that include criticism, doubt, and fear. That\u2019s just our minds doing the job they were designed to do: trying to anticipate and solve problems and avoid potential pitfalls,\u201d according to the 2013 Harvard Business Review article \u201cEmotional Agility.\u201d\n\nOur inner experiences drive how engaged and productive we are at work. Yet often our thoughts are repetitive, unpleasant, and about the past or the future.
