The Annoying Roommate in Your Mind

Jul 08, 2020

I’m sure you’ve seen it. The pretty Instagram post that says, “You are not your thoughts.” Heck, we’ve even posted that exact post from the Peak Mind account! 

But, you might be wondering what that even means, and that’s what we’re diving into with this week’s episode of the podcast. 

You see, here’s the thing: our minds are thought-generating machines. It’s their jobs. Our minds sending us a constant slew of thoughts is as natural as our stomach growling when we’re hungry. 

But, many times, those thoughts feel “authentic.” They feel like they’re something we’ve intentionally decide or believe. They dictate our feelings and even our behaviors, even if it means we avoid doing something we really and truly want to do. 

In this episode of the podcast, we’re diving into the ways in which our minds generate thoughts. Times when those thoughts are helpful, and times when they aren’t.  

Finally, we talk about a set of tools and techniques you can begin using RIGHT NOW to start separating yourself from the thoughts that are unhelpful.  

You’ll be hard-pressed to find an aspect of your life that isn’t impacted by the processes we’re digging into in this episode. For that reason, I hope you’ll give this episode a listen and implement some of the techniques we describe.  

Your thoughts are separate from you, and you do not have to obey them, but it takes psychological strength.  


During this episode, we announced the beta release of our signature psych strength building program, Ascend. We couldn’t be more excited to send this baby out into the world!
