Hey guys! I’m back again!
This time I want to talk about “How to Stop Being so Negative” by explaining you (from my own experience) five simple steps to accomplish it.
Before having my boyfriend, I used to be a very negative person without even noticing. I always excused myself by saying I was a “realistic” person. I wouldn’t think miracles existed or I wouldn’t even enjoy some moments or things because I knew they were going to be over someday. I would get mad over lots of things and see all the bad in something instead of appreciating the little nice things every single thing/person/moment has. I’m not going to explain a lot about this because it would take me ages!
So here I am now. With the help of my boyfriend I could finally see the beauty that every single thing has and also appreciate every moment of my life.
HERE ARE MY 5 STEPS TO STOP BEING SO NEGATIVE
1) Take care of your body
First you have to start by getting you body healthy before thinking of helping your mind. So start by eating healthier, doing exercise and sleeping the amounts of hours your body is asking you for. This way you’ll have more energy, you’ll be more awaken, and all the grumpiness will be severely reduced. You’ll start feeling better as days pass by, trust me.
2) Relieve your mind from stress
This is a very important tip! If you are stressed out, your mind is going to feel cluttered with thoughts that eventually will harm your body and then step 1 will be for nothing. You have to relax, to meditate, to set your mind free from nonsense worries. Of course you will have worries, but sometimes we worry about things that are not worth it and you are adding more stress to your mind. So relax, meditate and enjoy/have fun doing what you like.
3) Push your negativity away
Once you could deal with the first two steps (which are crucial for this next one), you now have to move the negativity away from your mind. How can you do this? Well, what I always do, is to choose a place where the only thing you can hear is your own thoughts, close your eyes and start thinking of the things that made you, make you, or think will make you feel negative. Gather all of these thoughts into a huge ball of negativity (to do so you´ll need a bit of imagination). Once you have it all of them together in your mind, start pushing it far away. Push it away with all your strength and heart. Slowly you’ll see it becoming smaller and smaller, until it’s so insignificant that it will disappear in front of you.
4) Bring positivity into you
This step is about imagining all the great things that you have in your life, and start picturing them in front of you like a big screen. Include every moment, every person, every thing that makes you happy and that you love. Gather all of them and just picture it for a while. Smile at this, because this is what will keep you up in difficult times. These will be the reasons to enjoy life, to wake up every day. These will be the engine of your life. That is why you have to remember them all day, every day.
5) Enjoy the present
Now that you have gone through all the mentioned steps before, apply them to your every day life. Don’t live by the past, and don’t live for the future. Enjoy the present. Delight yourself with every single little thing that life gives you!.
Hope you try it sometime or at least helo you see a different way to combat negativity. I had to learn this the hard way. I lost many things, some so very important to me, and when these things happen you just have to remember all those precious moments you had. That’s why you have to enjoy them all, because you never know how much longer it will be there for you.
Please tell me if this was helpful for you as it was for me!. Of course this doesn’t mean I don’t have bad days, I do, like anybody else, but I have a different vision of life and try to enjoy as much as I can to be happier!.
