A change in mindset can transform a negative feeling into a positive one. Every cloud has a silver lining.
Question Your Thoughts
You have the power to control your thoughts. Every single negative thought can be changed into a positive one.
It does take practice and consistency, but it can be done.
The next time you notice a negative thought sneaking up on you, stop what you’re doing and take some time to question it.
Why do you think that thought entered your mind in the first place? Did something happen in the past that made you cautious? Or are you experiencing a bad gut feeling?
Just because you think something doesn’t make it true – even if it feels that way right now.
Challenging your thoughts can help you look at events from several different points of view.
Will This Matter One Month From Now?
Remember, there is always light at the end of the tunnel.
Just because you can’t see it right now doesn’t mean it isn’t there.
When something is bothering you, an excellent question to ask yourself is…
“Will this matter a month from now?”
Bringing a little bit of the future into the present can help remind you that even though you may be feeling bad right now, the feeling will pass.
Practice Positive Thinking
None of us are perfect, and significant lifestyle changes won’t happen overnight. But if you put the work in, anything is possible.
Every small step is one step in the right direction.
Looking at one situation/event a day through a different lens is an amazing place to start.
