Do you get sidetracked by your negative thoughts? If yes, you are at the right place.
Negative thoughts can interfere with daily tasks, disrupt sleep, and prevent us from living happy, healthy lives when they take over our minds. Anxiety and despair are known to cause this.
Make A Decision
The first step is to realize that we may choose whether or not to let go. We can intentionally decide to stop reliving occurrences in our brains and simply remind ourselves to “let it go” whenever we recall an embarrassing circumstance or someone who has hurt us.
Note It Down
When I ruminate on unpleasant thoughts, I find it difficult to let them go unless I take out my journal and write about them. The sheer act of writing (rather than typing) forces me to calm down and describe what’s bugging me.
Stay In The Moment
When you’re entirely engrossed in the present moment, there’s little time or energy left to reflect on past mistakes. Isn’t it more enjoyable to live in the moment with an attitude of joy and abundance? Sitting and praying each morning helps me bring a more robust presence to my days.
Stop Rehearsing Thoughts.
Do you have those moments where you keep rehearsing old blunders or embarrassing occasions in your head? It’s a hazardous loop that can rob us of enjoyment and increase stress levels. Choose to treat yourself with the same kindness you would show a loved one the next time you find yourself rehashing occurrences. Deeply visualize your thoughts dissipating.
Work Up A Sweat
Working up a sweat is the best way to get out of a slump. I’ll go for a run or a spin class, and the release of endorphins nearly always gives me a sense of hope and clarity. Plus, It leaves you feeling mentally powerful, allowing me to concentrate on the tasks at hand.
