    There are so many amazing benefits to thinking positive. It’s good for the mind, body, and soul. And it’s true that we can rewire our brain by “flipping the script,” turning negative thoughts into positive ones. Thank you for sharing your tips for positive thinking!

    Definitely! Thinking negative thoughts can definitely take you down a dark rabbit role. Just trying to look at the upside or what could be good makes a big difference.

    You are so right about anxiety and negative self talk! It’s like the thoughts don’t stop, and you have to be so intentional about creating a positive head space.

    This is well written. I completely agree with the power of positive thinking! It is so important that we are able to recognize our thoughts and be able to see how damaging they can be. Great reminders!

    Great suggestions! I love the Henry Ford quote:
    “Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you are right!”

    A beautiful post! I have been doing a lot of self-talking these past 2 or 3 years. The doc said, “You don’t need pills anymore you got this on your own.” How amazing that was!

    Great tips. Negative thinking for sure doesn’t help (mot of the time) and it takes the same effort to think positive and so many benefits. Thanks for sharing.

    Great post, with great tips and quotes about positive thinking. It is my belief that positive thinking will only work long-term if we truly believe what we are saying to ourselves, and that it is coming from a deep understanding that what we are saying is truth coming from deep in our heart. The thoughts & feelings we have about ourselves must come from inside of us and radiate outwards, rather than us trying to “wear” positivity on the outside. Otherwise the positivity will just wear off and we will feel terrible again. Kind of like the difference between eating healthy foods to make our skin glow as opposed to putting make-up on to cover blemishes (if I can use that as an analogy) Thank you so much for sharing about this subject. I’d love to hear more about your journey. You mention you grew up thinking negatively. I’d love to know what was it that marked the turning point for you? How did you first identify the negative thinking and what was it that helped you change? I’m looking forward to hearing more.

      Thank you. Yes, you definitely need to believe it and put everything out there. I don’t think there was a specific turning point for me. I think it was the gradual slide of things seeming to get worse, being sick more often and just feeling like there was nothing ever to look forward to. I wasn’t happy and I knew something needed to change. I was sick of feeling like I was merely existing and I wanted to live. When I started to think about what I was telling myself and how it was making me feel, I started to realise the damage I had been doing and nothing was going to change if I didn’t do something about it. Habits are hard to break and take time, but it’s definitely something I’m continuing to work on. And I hope by writing this that other people can see what negative thoughts are doing to themselves and how they can bring more positivity to their lives.

    I definitely need to practice being more positive in my life. I find it very hard when people around me are very negative.

      That can definitely make it harder, but it will get easier.
