Tips on How to Change Your Negative Thinking
(Originally appeared at

wellnessbin.comThere are days when we can’t help but have negative thoughts, and although some of us are able to dispel them as quickly as they come, some of us may tend to linger on them more than others. Unfortunately, negative thinking can impair our performance in our day-to-day lives. Those who are undergoing therapy for social anxiety focus on transforming their negative thinking into a more positive tone regardless of the situation.

If you wish to be able to get yourself out of negative thinking, the first thing that you need to do is to know how your thinking process works and the problems that usually arise because of it. Once you become aware of it, you will be able to come up with strategies to help alleviate your dark thoughts.

For those who want to get started in changing their negative thoughts, these steps might be done.

There are different styles of thinking, such as “black and white” thinking, where you only think of good or bad. Understanding how your thought process works can help you identify how you deal with negative thoughts and be able to take steps to correct them.

Whatever we do, there will always be someone who will criticize us. Although it is easier said than done that we should learn how to cope with rejection or commentaries about your life, practicing defending your self, may help you accept criticisms and rejections better.

There are times when our negative thoughts just take over us to the point that we are no longer able to function well. If this is the case, taking a long hot shower or bath can help ease the stress and tension that you are feeling. The hot temperature helps in soothing your muscles which puts you in a state of relaxation. You can even add a few drops of essential oils in your bath water to support a calmer you.

When negative thoughts start to intrude, we often find our productivity levels to take a hit. Unfortunately, this can be a source of hindrance to our performance, especially when there are times when we simply don’t want to do anything. But this is not really recommended since your brain is not being distracted from the negative thoughts. Keeping yourself busy is one of the best ways to counter your negative thoughts. You can start by spending some time in your garden, reading a book, or even doing your laundry for that matter. Even the simplest action can do you a world of good.

Mindfulness is rooted in meditation as it basically the practice of being able to detach yourself from your own emotions and thoughts and be able to observe them outside yourself. In mindfulness practice, you will be training yourself how to view your thoughts and your actions as a casual observer where you are able to let other thoughts go after observing them from all angles. The goal of mindfulness is to be able to control your emotions to various situations and letting the thinking side of your brain do its work.

It is understandable that we allow negative thinking to take a hold of ourselves, but being aware that you are dwelling in these kinds of thoughts, and be able to get out of them, should be done as much as we can. You see, allowing negativity in our lives is not really healthy. And may put us at risk of emotional problems such as depression and anxiety. By learning how to change our negative thoughts, we are helping ourselves become better too. (Read more at How to Be a Leader Everyone Loves to Work With

Search for: How to Be a Leader Everyone Loves to Work With We all want to work for a leader who is motivating, inspiring, visionary, and brilliant at making plans and carrying them out. But unfortunately, many of us have had leaders who made our lives hell and turned coming to work into a challenge. Good leaders inspire people to stay and work and dream big and take risks and do great things. Everybody loves working with them. Here are some of the qualities they share—if you see them in yourself, great, and if not, work on incorporating them into your leadership: They’re all about the people and less about the process. Efficient processes are important, but it falls to the people within the organization who actually execute the strategies, plans, and process to make the business successful. The Best Picks from Nudge Theory: How Simple Changes Can Drastically Improve Our Decisions About Health, Wealth and Happiness

Richard Thaler and Cass Sunstein made the famous Nobel-Prize winning case for nudge theory in their 2008 book drawing from a wide range of research areas from psychology to economics to politics to marketing to decision science to help people and governments make better decisions for themselves. Since then, the nudge methods have successfully been adopted both on personal and policy level in many developed as well as developing countries. This post discusses some of the most interesting examples of nudge theory in real life or in other words it explores the ‘art of simple changes’ in decision making.

Jeff Valdivia Follow Nov 21 · 6 min read Constant happiness should not be your goal. Photo by Bonnie Kittle on Unsplash I’ll admit, I’ve become a little obsessed with the concept of happiness over the last couple of months. It’s a fascinating topic and one that’s wrought with misunderstandings. As humans, we’re thrust into this world without so much as washing instructions. I mean, even our t-shirts come with those. But, alas, we’re left to figure everything out for ourselves, including whether to use cold water only!

Simplistic and thought provoking

This podcast stays on point with its model. Not one episode over seven minutes so it's easy to take in and use. Topics are clear and concise. Also if there's more to the topic outside of what's put into the episode the source materal is given in the show notes so that the listener can dive further into the topic.

I needed this

Ever have one of those middle of the day meltdowns? But you still have hours of stuff to do and you can’t leave the office and medicate for two hours. Breathe. Headphones. 7 minutes. It works for me every time.

Great start to the day

I’m always pumped to listen to this podcast every morning! Such a great inspiration right away in the morning

Great motivation podcast

I listen to a few of these 7 min pods casts every morning whilst I’m getting ready for work. I feel like it really motivates me for the day and keeps me thinking positively. Definitely worth a try!

Freddy fry is life changing

The Freddy fry episodes are honestly life changing and have help me during soooooo many low points. The messages are uplifting and are my go-to when I’m feeling down or overwhelmed

Who CDs - from United States of America

I was surprised...

I was surprised that 7 minutes of excepts of speeches could have anything new to tell me about personal development. But the value is in the curation, something that is highly undervalued. The host has a knack for picking something of value for me. My next step is choose a little 7 min job every day to do while listening ... maybe even sort out my garage ! Now THAT will be a triumph
