5 Steps That Will Squash Your Negative Thoughts

We have all experienced a constant flow of negative thoughts flooding our minds and corrupting our brains at some time or another. In those moments, we just want to leave everything behind and run as far away as possible. We keep looking for that one place, that one support, that can calm us down. So here are five steps that will help get rid of this flood of negative thoughts:

Realize your own thoughts are the culprit

The foremost essential point is to realize that it is your own thought activity that is the real culprit. In that moment when we are awash with negative thoughts, our mind is not under our control and thus we fail to think sensibly. We start blaming everyone and everything around us, and neglect the fact that we need to work upon our own mind. It is our own thought process that needs to be altered and not the people in our surroundings. Realizing this fact is the first step to get you on track to crush your negative thoughts.

Move out of the company that triggers negative thoughts

We humans do not have total control of our own selves. We tend to come under the influence of negative thinking and ideas very easily. Hence, the best thing we can do is avoid negative company and negative situations. Understand that this doesn’t mean completely cutting ourselves off from our friends or relatives. All you need to do is to keep some distance when you feel this company is influencing your mindset in a negative way, returning to it when you feel stronger, or only keeping it in small doses.

Keep the company that thinks positively

There must be people around you who know you well and who know how to look at the positive aspects of life. These are the people who will help you direct your attention towards the brighter side and refrain from thinking about the darker part. This is not running away from the darker part, rather it is a way to gain the strength to crush negative thoughts or convert them into bright ones. Open up your heart completely to these people and they will show you the true path to working upon yourself. All that is required from you is to believe in them and the path that they embrace and follow.

Try and become one with nature

Nature is pure and it retains the power to freshen you up completely. When you find yourself getting drowned in the current of negative thoughts and wanting to run away from everything, then do run away — and walk into the arms of nature! Go out for a stroll in open air and see how beautiful life is if we simply bend our thought processes in the right direction. Once you start feeling better, ponder upon the positive aspects of life and help yourself maintain that healthy attitude.

Keep motivating yourself every now and then

Not just during the current bout of negative thoughts, but in every instance and at every moment, tell yourself that you are stronger than your negative thoughts: that no such thoughts can influence you or bring you down; that your values and your ideals are strong enough to stand up against the negative current; that you want to see yourself happy and hence you will do anything to maintain that positive inner state.

By following these steps, you can help yourself become stronger and mightier than your negative thinking, and stand up against any such force bravely and eventually gain greater self-control.
