“Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it” -Confucius.
Our thoughts define us. They shape our perception. Positive and negative thoughts have the ability to influence the outcome of our day. To enjoy every day of life, one needs to get rid of the negative thoughts. If you are at the university, you must be struggling to complete numerous assignments on tight deadlines. You may even be asking questions like “ who can ”. Many times negative thinking becomes part of our daily routine in less than no time. And it’ll not stop bothering you unless you decide to take some action to drive them out of your mind.
The more you try to push them out of your mind, the deeper you sink into the hole of negativity. So, you wonder “am I ever going to get out it?” and more alike thoughts start to march inside your head.
Take listed approaches to pin-down negative thoughts:
• Keep yourself engaged: Idle mind likes to swimming deep in thought. If you’re swaddled in negative thoughts, giving yourself much time to linger and wonder might not be a good idea. So, keep yourself engaged this way or that.
• Talk: Keeping things inside all the time can lead to negative thought. So, get your emotions, fears, and anxieties out by talking with your trusted ones. You can also start writing a diary. This way might just find out the origin of your negative thoughts, and it's much easier to lead them out after that.
• Be mindful of your thoughts: Always trying to resist negative thoughts will make them more powerful. So, instead of trying to resist them, welcome them and be mindful of the nature of your negative thoughts. Try to get to the root from where your negativity sprouted.
• Meditation: It’s a powerful practice that can drive out all the negative thoughts out of your mind. Not just that, it also helps you build a more subtle concentration level.
• Body language: If you don’t have a confident body language it might lead to degraded self-image. So, it’s vital to maintain a good body language.
• Stay more out and less in: Observe the world you are living in. Be aware of your surrounding. Eat your food in a mindful manner. Stay focused on the outer world more than your inner self for the time being. Once the things are back to normal, you can start diving inside again.
• Read self-help books: Books are true companions. There are plenty of well-recognized books that can help one overcome the pattern of negative thoughts.
• Indulge yourself in something creative: Find a hobby. The act of immersing yourself in beautiful things beautifies your mind too.
