Positive thinking really does change your brain. Not in some magical woo-woo kind of way, but in a real physical way.
It means that our thoughts can change the structure and function of our brains.
Experts say that repetitive positive thoughts can rewire your brain and strengthen brain areas that stimulate positive feelings.
Life is not all perfect and at times we just can’t face our demons.
Which is why we give you here the recipe to transform negative thoughts into positive ones.
Here are a bunch of negative thoughts that cross our minds on a daily basis and how to overcome them.
- Fear of failure
Force yourself to stop thinking about reasons you can’t do something.
Every time a negative thought creeps in, retrain your brain to think a positive thought about your abilities instead.
If you think life is unfair to you, just put down a list of all the positive things happening around you in life even if they were small ones.
Even the simplest of things can make a difference, only if you want to! (REMEMBER THAT)
It may take a while to do so, but never give up on yourself.
Nike’s slogan, “Just do it,” has real validity.
- Over-thinking and Worrying
Have you ever found yourself trapped in obsessive and never-ending over-thinking cycle about a problem that lasts for days or even weeks?
It drains your energy and affects your sleep.
When you find yourself in that cycle of worry or compulsive thinking, remember the three R’s — Rename, Re-frame, and Redirect.
When the worry begins, Rename the issue by reminding yourself that worry isn’t real. Rename it as a compulsive reaction, not reality.
Re-frame your thinking by focusing on positive or distracting thoughts.
Redirect your actions by doing something uplifting, fun or mentally engaging to shake off that negative state of mind you are trapped in.
Once you succeed in doing this, you will find things falling into their right place.
- Mood Swings
Sometimes we might feel blue, and it’s just a temporary fog that settles in and lifts after a few days.
It is okay to have it, but don’t unpack and live there in the blue!
They are only temporary.
Even if you don’t have too much time on your hands, consider taking a “Me Time” that offers you personal satisfaction and pleasure.
Please fasten your seatbelts and be ready for your tranquility flight.
Take into your consideration that after all, busy hands are happy hands.
A word of advice
Stay Positive and be happy
Remember, we are all connected in one way or another.
Positive energy created by you will not only affect your world, but also the people around you.
Choose to stay positive and you will see yourself bouncing back from each and every hurdle that you may encounter in your life.
You simply can’t go wrong with positive energy resting by your side! We all have the ability to be happier and more positive.
Positivity can raise our IQ’s, rejuvenate aging brains, and help us learn new skills with ease.
And always remember, practice makes perfect!
