Feeling positive and in control is not very common for me, but I have been feeling like that lately. Not only am I capable of decreasing anxiety and feeling more okay in the world, but I have also been able to stop the negative thoughts from creeping in (like they would usually do…)!
Every time my mind wonders and I find myself thinking of an impossible and negative scenario that could happen (it wouldn’t), I just stop myself, breathe deeply and think about something positive instead. It’s the tiniest of things but it really does help.
Usually I’d feel weird actually admitting that I feel okay, but I was able to tell myself that simply talking about it is not a bad thing. Talking about it will, hopefully, both remind myself of how to feel better in the future, or help anyone else out there from feeling as bad as I was feeling.
Do you have any tips you use on a day to day basis that could help me/others from letting the negative thoughts in?
