Positive Thinking and Mindset – Turn Negative Thoughts to Positive 2018
The power of positive thinking. I am Usmar from Pakistan and today I’d like to talk about Positive Thinking. How to stay positive and how to turn negative thoughts into positive? Taking negative thoughts or emotions and turning them into positive is actually not that hard.
Everything in this life is so relative and it all depends on how we choose to look at things, how to perceive them, depends on our state of mind or our expectations at that point. If we want to eliminate negative thoughts we need understand where do they come from?
Many negative emotions come from blaming someone or something for situations that happen in your life. Since you can’t change the outcome of the situation it’s useless to be angry about it.
Constant negative thoughts can weigh you down both physically and mentally. These 5 tricks will help you translate negative thoughts into positive ones before they ruin your day and even your life in a long term. 1. Push Negative Thoughts Out It takes about 25 seconds of dwelling on a thought for it to enter our consciousness and affect our mood.
As soon as you notice negative thoughts or images enter your mind, just say “stop!” to yourself. You can even say it out loud, preferably if no one is around 🙂 but it is also effective when just said in your head.
Train your brain to reject these thoughts, stop them before they get stuck in your head. 2. Make Time for Positivist If you surround yourself and your life with negativity, your thoughts will not be optimistic.
Make time to do things that make you happy personally. A hobby, reading, sports, anything enjoyed by you is a good distraction from negativity. Focus on things that promote happiness and positive thinking and let them be in charge of your emotions. 3.
Picture something you are happy and grateful for If you start feeling frustrated, sad, or pessimistic, remember something you feel good about, and focus on it. Think about your loved ones, your pet, your friends. Recall something you are grateful for! Absorb that feeling of gratitude for a few moments.
Lingering on a positive memory and experience helps to settle a positive mood. 4. Replace the negativity around you (toxic people/things) You may have to distance yourself from negative people or negative things. People that tend to ‘bring you down’ or that you suspect are “talking behind your back” are toxic and should be avoided.
It’s difficult to focus on the bright side when you’re surrounded by negativity. Identify the positive people in your life, spend time with them on a regular basis. Positive people love helping others, don’t be afraid to express your admiration for their emotional health.
Their positive energy is contagious and you will end up developing optimistic thoughts too. 5. Smile often 🙂 It does sounds cheesy but a lot of people don’t realize that happy thoughts can be projected from your actions to your mind, feeling good doesn’t always come from the inside.
Smiling persistently activates endorphins responsible for making us feel good , they also help us lower stress levels. Smiles are very powerful, free, and extremely beneficial in building a positive mindset 🙂 Like attracts like. Positive thoughts and happiness create more of the same, you can’t deny that a positive mindset is a key for living a healthy and satisfying life. It’s time to quit the negative thinking for good and it won’t take long for you to see the results.
