7 Tips to Overcome Negative Thoughts

When we start to have negative thoughts, it can be difficult to break the cycle. Try these 7 tips from TinyBuddha.com.

Meditate or do yoga. Yoga and meditation take your attention away from negative thoughts, and place the attention on your breath.

Smile. Smiling has been proved to help change your mood and relieve stress.

Surround yourself with positive people. Call a friend who can give you constructive, yet loving feedback. When you’re stuck in a negative spiral, talk to people who can put things into perspective and won’t feed your negative thinking.

Change the tone of your thoughts from negative to positive. For example, instead of thinking, “We are going to have a hard time adjusting to our living situation,” think, “We will face some challenges in our living situation, but we will come up with solutions that we will both be happy with.”

Don’t play the victim. You create your life—take responsibility. There’s a way out of any situation. You simply have to make the choice to change.

Help someone. Take the focus away from you and do something nice for another person. You’ll feel better.

Remember that no one is perfect. It’s easy to dwell on your mistakes. Instead, learn from them and move forward.
