practice to see the good things in any kind of experience, situation, relationship and focus on appreciation every day.
(all you need is a bit of discipline and you will see a huge change after a few days of practice)
get rid of negative energy and get aware of negativity – so you can create more of positive thoughts and replace the negative beliefs with positive beliefs that push you into a peaceful / motivating / more productive state of mind.
request your limited beliefs about yourself. „is the thought you think true or not? just because you think a thought does not mean it is true.“ (remember that)
your body reacts to any kind of thought. a negative thought effects your body negative – as a positive thought effects your body – in a good / positive way.
examples for questions to ask yourself – if you want to get rid of painful / negative / stressful thoughts would be :
is this thought true?
how does it feel when i think this thought?
who would i be without this thought?
how would i react without this thought?
how would i be without this thought? (imagine it or just write your answers down)
i´ve learned these „simple“ (not easy but simple) skills from byron katie.
her work changed my way of thinking 7 years ago. back then i started writing.
i recommend you her book „loving what is“ if you are serious and ready to work on your state of mind / or if you want to learn new skills, if you want to learn to forgive – if you are depressed and if you struggle with painful experiences of your past, that keep pushing you back – it helped me to forgive people / toxic experiences / traumas from childhood and i was able to learn so much more about my inner self and overcome stress and anxiety and more.
