    Stressful situations,
    ruminating about the past,
    worrying about what might happen in the future.

    These are mini storms
    that come,
    stay in your mind for a while,
    then leave.
    How big of a storm it is,
    and how long the storm lasts
    depends entirely on how much you entertain it.

    The more you feed energy to these things
    (by thinking about them),
    the stronger and longer the storm.
    The less you allow your mind to feed these,
    the sooner they will starve and die off.

    The only issue?
    All this thinking is mostly subconscious.
    When you're stressing about something or
    ruminating on something that happened,
    you get pulled into an almost literal 'train' of thought
    and 15 minutes later, you snap out of it
    and realize you've been staring blankly
    at the ground the whole time.
    Where were you for those 15 minutes?
    It's like you were just dreaming in your mind
    and then you suddenly wake up and come back
    to this moment right here, right now, aka reality.

    As you practise pulling your attention back
    from these thought storms and just keeping
    your attention here in this moment,
    you will start to "snap" out of them faster because your awareness of your thoughts will allow you
    to catch yourself doing it, faster.
    And as you continue to do that,
    you will see that these storms have no power
    without your attention feeding them.
    You will see that they are insignificant
    and you may even laugh at yourself for being silly and taking these thoughts so seriously.

    Continue to be aware of your attention
    and how it automatically wants to be carried away
    by these train of thoughts.
    And return your mind back to silence each time.

    Bhudda was asked "what did you gain from meditation?"
    He replied,
    "Nothing. But let me tell you what I lost: anger, anxiety, depression, fear of death, insecurities."
