Audio On Breaking Negative Thinking Patterns Contributed by Our Friends at The Outcome

In today's episode of 7 Good Minutes, we learn a few helpful tips on Breaking Negative Thinking Patterns.

We've all been there before stuck in a seemingly never-ending cycle of negative thinking. Whether it's dwelling on a past mistake or fixating on an unfortunate situation, negative thinking patterns can be debilitating.

But the good news is that there are ways to break free from these destructive thought processes. Here are five strategies you can use to start thinking more positively.

Be aware of your thoughts

The first step to breaking negative thinking patterns is becoming aware of the thoughts you're having in the first place. Oftentimes, we allow our thoughts to run rampant without taking the time to critically evaluate them. Pay attention to the things you tell yourself on a daily basis, and question whether or not they're actually true. Just because you think something doesn't make it true.

Talk back to your inner critic

We all have that little voice in our head that tells us we're not good enough, smart enough, or capable enough. This internal dialogue can be very harmful, so it's important to learn how to talk back to your inner critic. When you find yourself having negative thoughts, counter them with positive statements about yourself.

For example, if you're berating yourself for not getting a promotion at work, remind yourself of all of the valuable contributions you make on a daily basis.

Reframe your thinking

When we're stuck in a negative thought pattern, it can be difficult to see things from another perspective. To help break free from this type of thinking, try reframing your thoughts in a more positive light.

For instance, instead of beating yourself up for not working out three times this week like you intended to, give yourself credit for making it to the gym even once. Small changes like this can make a big difference in your overall outlook on life.

Practice gratitude

It's easy to get caught up in what we don't have and forget about all of the incredible things we do have in our lives. To help shift your focus from negative to positive thoughts, practice gratitude on a daily basis by taking inventory of all the things you're thankful for no matter how big or small they may be.

Research has shown that gratitude can increase overall happiness and well-being, so it's definitely worth incorporating into your daily routine.

Focus on solutions instead of dwelling on problems

Negative thinking often occurs when we dwell on problems without looking for solutions. If you find yourself in this situation, take a step back and ask yourself what you can do to resolve the issue at hand instead of wallowing in self-pity or feeling sorry for yourself.

For example, if you're worried about an upcoming work presentation, come up with a game plan for dealing with nervousness or lack of confidence. Focusing on solutions rather than dwelling on problems will help you move forward in a more productive way.

Negative thinking patterns can be tough to break free from, but it's definitely possible with some effort and perseverance. By using some or all of the strategies listed above, you can start thinking more positively today.
