When we live in our thoughts it’s like we always worry about our future and the second thought would be of our past event whichever happened to us. And the other part of thoughts would be of certain conditions which don’t satisfy fully which dishearten us. Which leaves are dissatisfied these negative thoughts always prevent you from enjoying your present time, this thought distracts you from focusing on these things which are important for you these negative thoughts make you depressed and anxious?
