We all have negative thought patterns that become habitual and can be tough habits to break. There are ways that you can break through that cycle of negative thinking. The odds are, the negative thinking patterns have impacted your life and well being. You can replace some of these negative ideas with more positive ones. One of the negative thoughts has been identified as all or nothing thinking. You can change the course of this thinking with mindfulness. The more aware we are of ourselves, the better we can be at changing that.
- Negative thinking patterns can create unnecessary stress and anxiety and pave the way for a bleak outlook on life.
- In order to adopt more positive thinking patterns, you must first become aware of your current ways of thinking.
- If you need the company of others, be sure to surround yourself with people who will encourage your positive thinking. (Steer clear of triggers!)
