How To Stop Focussing On The Negative?


How to stop focussing on the negative

It is a well-known fact that the more you want to avoid negative thoughts, they will attack you more vigorously. When you are in a fluster, negative thoughts get into your mind and trouble you all the time stealing your happiness. The more you think about that you become so fickle minded and that in turn will kill your self-confidence. According to me the one who lacks this great quality is not a human being at all. This will sometimes lead to emotional breakdown as well. So checking your emotions and thoughts will help you a lot.

 

Just like if our legs slip into the quicksand we can’t take it out because the gravitational pull in that particular area is high. Similarly, if we fall prey for negative thoughts, it is very difficult to come out of it later. Instead of panicking, you have to apply your strength both physical and mental to come out of it. Otherwise, you will start to perish soon. Never let your enemy grow stronger.

There are a number of ways to come out of those killing thoughts. What are they?

 

Deviate your mind on something else

When you focus your mind on something else, that’s  equally important and requires your attention, you will slowly start to recover. For example, you have to study well for an upcoming exam, think only about that exam. This will help you to stay focussed only on the exam,  which prevents negative thoughts to enter your mind. Sometimes, doing some other activities such as, going for shopping or listening to soothing music will help you to defend yourselves from bad thoughts.

 

Socialize with people having positive thinking

This will be of great help to you to avoid negative thoughts. You are often pulled down by negative minded people. Their negative attitude towards life will destroy your positive outlook towards life. So, try to avoid such people in your group.

 

Check your situation once again

 Recheck the situation that led you to fall prey for negative thoughts.  Try to take things lightly. This will help you to be out of this pit soon. Think about what you can do reduce the harmful effect of a situation. Research and find out opportunities to win, rather than getting trapped in the darkness.

 

Gain confidence

Improve your confidence level by working on it. If you don’t have enough courage to face the reality, gain confidence by making yourself to understand that you can overcome the situation by taking things lightly.

 

Talk to your confidante

 You will at least have one friend whom you can trust. Pour your heart out and seek his help to tide over the difficult situation. Venting your anger, frustration out will help you calm down. This will help to restore peace in your life.

In short, we need to eliminate negative thoughts to get a control over our thoughts and start experiencing happiness and peace. It is a common tendency of all going back to the same situation when you are trying to come out of a grave situation. Don’t give up the energy to resist. Fight back with all vigor and strength. This will help you achieve great things without any difficulty.
