How to Get Over with Negative Thoughts

Our thoughts are the doorway of our emotions. “I’m completely stuck in this” – if such thoughts crop up in your mind quite often, it’s time to give a serious thought to the things going wrong. A possible reason can be the responsibility of playing of several roles in life.

Many times we experienceinsomnia, mood swings, emotional turmoil and uneasiness while carrying out various duties in our lives. This can further make you passive on many fronts in life.

We then lose all our positive energy and become the storehouse of negative energy.

Here are a few tips of regaining the lost positive energy in life:

Take Out Time for Yourself: Try and do a division of your heavy workload. Make a list of tasks which can be split into smaller chunks. If there are some tasks which you carry out regularly but at the back of your head you realise they aren’t really important, give them up. Try and learn the art of time management. Make attempts to strike a balance between your personal and family life.

Bad Times would Eventually Go Away: Downbeat circumstances can become a cause of sorrow. But bear this in your mind that this time would eventually be over. Try and see if any benefits can be extracted from such harsh times. This would promote optimism in you.

Good Company: Try and avoid the company of people whose favourite pastime is exploring negativities in others. This can only aggravate your problem.

Think Positive: Don’t let thoughts like: “I’m trapped”, “things are never going to change” etc. cloud your head. Easier said than done but you can at least give it a try.

At your Workplace: If you’re finding it difficult to handle things in your office, do not hesitate in walking up to your boss and discussing things with him. These days many companies provide counseling to their employees.

Leisure Activities: Though clichéd but activites like watching movies, listening to music, gossiping, travelling can actually help you overcome negativities in your life.

Getaways: If you’re stuck in the din and bustle of your city life, it’s time to go for a nonchalant break. Plan getaways to hills, jungles, beaches et al (there’s no point going to just another city for that would not help you escape from the usual uproar). You would feel rejuvenated and. Some personal experience here. I recently went for holidaying in the Corbett jungles. After coming back I felt refreshed and more optimistic.

Eat Healthy: Eating healthy food is a key to not just remain physically fit but also to attain good mental health.
