so so true
You may always have the tendency to think the worst is going to happen, but most of the time it doesn’t..It turns out the tendency to think negatively is a human evolution. This type of thinking use to be a survival tool to help protect us during cavemen era! The good news is, today were not in that era anymore and we can change our thinking! Instead of thinking why YOU are thinking that way, think of all the things YOU are doing to stop it 🙂
Here are 3 awesome ways to help you change your thinking! (I’ve experimented with all of these and all of them worked for me so I hope it can work for you too!) 🙂
#1. The Gratitude Journal-This is really easy to start and it can change your thoughts instantly! Just grab an empty journal and title it “GRATITUDE.” After that is done, start writing all the things you are grateful for each and everyday. It doesn’t have to be a very long list, just think of all the simple things that made you happy today 🙂 Try your best to do this at the same time (eg.after breakfast, before bed), so it can become a habit. I started this, and it changed my life 🙂 I’m so thankful for all the good things that comes into my life, more good just comes and it can happen to you too!
#2.Surround yourself with everything positive!-Have you ever heard of the quote from Jim Rohn- “You’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”
This quote speaks truth, whether it is people or things engage yourself with positive things, know that you have the choice! To be honest, I am the most positive person out of all my friends, but most of the time I surround myself with doing the things that makes me happy like cooking, singing or dancing. Listening to inspirational pod-casts is a plus for me! Just remember doing these things is a choice you have to make, do this for yourself!:)
#3.Ask yourself this: Is this thought even rational or logical?-Ask yourself these questions whenever your mind wanders to the negative bubble. Think reasonable, think logical. List or think all of the things that counteract that thought. You’ll be pleasantly surprised with why you even thought that way at first.
I hope you try at least one or even better ALL THREE of them!:D Remember it takes 21days to form a habit, so be patient with your results. Give me a shout out, by commenting below how these methods worked for you, or if you have any ideas or suggestions for my blog! I’ll be more than happy to hear from you!:)
