Curious Observer Stance
First, become an Observer of your thoughts, a curious bystander – watching your mind as it moves from topic to topic, spirals with a line of thinking, or perhaps is fixed on one line of thinking. Become a curious observer.
Begin the process of letting go of the judgement you might have about your thoughts … perhaps you see them as distressing, annoying, anxiety provoking or even impractical. Replace this judgment with understanding, acceptance, and compassion.
