Negative Thoughts and Your Health


Many people wouldn’t believe that negative thoughts are bad for health, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Negative thinking can impact on the quality of your life and have a harmful effect on your mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. To avoid negative thinking, there are many things you can do. Realizing that you have control over your attitude and your thoughts is first and foremost. Once you realize that, the next step is to pay attention to any negative thoughts that might enter your mind. When you notice a negative thought, it can be effective to say ‘stop!’, whether out loud or in your head. Firmly tell yourself to stop thinking like that. While it might feel a little strange or silly at first, the more you do it, the better you will get. Next, replace the negative thoughts with positive affirmations. It can be helpful to repeat these when you notice negative thinking.
Another effective way of ridding yourself of negative thoughts can be to write them down. Seeing your thoughts in black and white can help you realize they aren’t true, and reinforce your positivity. At first, it will be hard to let things go. If you have years of negative thinking built up in your mind, it takes a while to retrain your brain to think positively. But don’t give up! Focus on your good qualities, and let go of the things you can’t do too well. Your failures don’t define you. Stay positive by doing the things you love, or picking up a hobby that you’ve wanted to do for a while. This can help you feel better about yourself and reduce stress by providing a healthy outlet for your feelings.
