Dear friend,

Do you feel overrun by a gazillion thoughts and don’t know what to do about it?

Are you exhausted and overwhelmed from listening to the same old broken records
playing over and over in your head and wish there was a way to pull the plug?

Well, I know exactly where you are coming from. And I also know the answer to your problem.

For years, I felt trapped inside my head with a neurotic chatterbox for company.

And I had no idea what to do about it.

I read self-help books, spent a small fortune on therapy and workshops, had positive affirmation post-it notes around the house and in my car and, although these approaches were helpful to some extent, none of them addressed the
REAL ISSUE, which was this:

My peace, or lack of it, seemed to be entirely dependent on whatever random thoughts happened to be passing through the mind in any given moment. My peace was determined by something I had no control over.

And then one day on a meditation retreat, through grace or whatever, I had a light bulb moment which changed my relationship with the mind in an instant.

My thoughts were no different from before – the mind was still up to all its old tricks – but something had shifted. The thoughts were no longer affecting my peace in the same way. And the beautiful truth is that anyone can experience more peace straight away.

I have written this book to share with you how a simple shift in how you
relate to the mind can be utterly life-changing – no matter how screwed up you believe yourself to be.

"This is the best method I have ever come across. I have been searching for years for ways to stop thinking and no one has ever suggested this approach before. I can't believe it is so simple. Thank you so much. I will be sharing your book in the hope it will help others as well. Rosie Greig, Dunblane.



For years, my mind was like an out-of-control Frankenstein monster with a life of its own. I believed I had no option but to listen to its incessant ramblings all day long.

When the thoughts were pleasant, I was happy.
When they were unpleasant, I was unhappy. I was like a marionette being dragged around by the puppeteer mind.

And here is the crux of the matter.

In all my efforts to break free of mind-created suffering, I had been focusing on trying to ‘fix’ the mind itself
trying to change undesirable thoughts and thinking patterns into more pleasant, more acceptable ones. I equated peace with having nice thoughts.

But what if the mind was not the problem at all? What if the mind is just doing what all minds do? (being a big mess)

What if is not the mind itself that causes us problems but the way we relate to it?

All along, I had been barking up the wrong tree
looking for peace of mind rather than peace with mind.

In this book, you will learn how you give the mind power through the deeply-ingrained habit of:

  • giving it so much attention

  • believing everything it tells you

  • judging and resisting thoughts as they arise

  • taking the thoughts personally

  • believing the thoughts are who you are

In truth the mind has only as much power as we give it

Learn to withdraw your attention from the mind (I will show you how) and it loses its power to affect your peace. Instead of trying to find peace
of mind through the near-impossible approach of attempting to “fix” all of your thoughts, learn to enjoy peace with mind straight away through changing how you relate to thoughts as they arise.

Thank you so much Richard for this wonderful book. It all makes so much sense. My mind has been tormenting me for years and I feel much freer already. I woke up excited this morning, ready to apply this wisdom, especially the part about taking the mind’s stories with a large pinch of salt. I will recommend the book to all of my friends. Thank you.

This 157-page ebook is written in 5 parts, which loosely represent the stages of my own journey. Reading this book will hopefully enable you to quickly grasp what took me years to see.

It is important to realise that breaking free of mind-created suffering need not take any time at all, regardless of how stuck you believe yourself to be. Changing your relationship with thoughts can happen in an instant.

  • unconscious thinking is a habit we have learned at a young age
  • it is the 'mother of all addictions', affecting practically everyone
  • we suffer when we take the voices in our heads seriously, believe
  • what they tell us and think that we have no choice but to listen
  • the mind has NO power other than that which we give it

  • alcohol, television, gadgets, over-working, busi-ness
  • self-improvement does NOT address the issue of addictive thinking
  • no need to fix the content of the mind to experience peace
  • changing the ideas we have about the mind

  • becoming the watcher of the mind rather than being lost in the mind
  • deeply questioning our false beliefs and unfounded assumptions
  • taking the mind's version of reality with a large pinch of salt
  • examining the belief that "there is something wrong with me as I am"
  • dropping our resistance to the mind –  accepting it exactly as it is
  • being innocent –  letting go of our preconceived ideas and beliefs

  • exercises for watching the mind
  • becoming the watcher rather than the thinker
  • thoughts appear by themselves and, if left alone, disappear again
  • suffering is created by our resistance to thoughts
  • thinking itself is a choice

  • the mind pulls us out of the moment and into the past and future
  • experiencing life second-hand through the mind’s complex filters
  • how to experience the simple joy of being here now
  • present moment awareness stops thinking dead in its tracks
  • powerful exercises for directing the attention inward
  • the benefits of mindfulness and meditation

Thanks for sharing your book. I have been trapped in the iron grip of excessive thinking and analyzing for many years. It has and is making me miserable. I read your book and while I am not yet free of addictive thinking, it certainly helped me with insights about how to question all the mind's assumptions. Anjali, Hong Kong.

My name is Richard Paterson. I am a spiritual life coach, mindfulness teacher (and ex-monk) from Edinburgh, Scotland.

When I first ‘got’ the ideas outlined in this book, I wanted to shout it out from the rooftops!

After all, if there was a simple way to eradicate most of our mind-created suffering, wouldn’t everyone want to know about it?

The simple ideas I share in "Kick The Thinking Habit" really work. They have transformed my own life and the lives of many of my students clients. And it can do the same for you.

Paradoxically, attempting to escape the mind by trying to fix or change it, is
precisely what keeps us trapped.

Once we see the mind for what it really is and understand the true cause of our mind-created suffering, the issue is resolved in the seeing itself. There is nothing else we need do.

For the past 11 years, it has been my joy and privilege to share these teachings with others – through talks, workshops, individual and group coaching sessions and through this book "Kick the Thinking Habit".

"I am 32 years old and have struggled to find happiness since I was a teenager! I have read numerous articles and book excerpts and nothing has really hit home like this. Your truth about not fighting the mind but rather accepting it as it is and refusing to buy into the blame and guilt that the horrible mental commentator gives, is the most liberating experience I have has in this struggle! I had to stop and tell you just how grateful I am for your gift in sharing this material. Thank you , thank you, thank you!"
Christine Davidson, United States.
