How To Reprogram Your Mind For Positive Thinking

Brainy Dose Presents:How To Reprogram Your Mind For Positive ThinkingYou already know that staying positive promotes
a happier and healthier life. There are tons of studies out there that have
proven the correlation between optimism andimproved mental and physical states. We know definitively that positivity boosts
motivation – helping you achieve your goalsand find fulfillment in life. These facts are great and all, but how do
you foster a more positive mindset?It can be a difficult struggle to hold onto
your optimism – especially when facing unforeseenobstacles, sudden hardships, or negative attitudes. The good thing is, that you have the ability
to reprogram your mind – to see the glassas half full instead of half empty. Here are 7 essential tips. Number 1 – Mind Your Body LanguageWhen we’re feeling down, we tend to communicate
our feelings to others non-verbally. If you’re sad, you might slouch, avoid eye
contact, or cross your arms. Discomfort can be seen in your face – and
your body language. When your head is full of negative thoughts,
you let your circumstances take hold of yourbody, instead of being mindful about how you
present yourself. In this state, you appear weak, uneasy, mad,
or upset. Others may interpret it as a command to leave
you alone. But, positive thinking is as much about your
body as it is about your mind – and you canproject positivity with something as simple
as your posture. When you stand tall, meet people’s eyes
and smile, you show others that you’re readyto listen, feel positive, and possess strength. Maintaining a powerful stance will help create
channels for positivity to flow freely throughoutyour body. You, and the people around you, will feel
this newfound optimism and respond with morepositivity. Number 2 – Affirm Empowering BeliefsWhen we are held back in life, it is often
the result of our own limiting beliefs. Although you probably have valid reasons to
believe in these pessimistic thoughts, theydon’t serve you well. Be mindful of how ‘negative past experiences’
tend to shape unhopeful visions of the future- visions that are inaccurate and toxic. If you want to reprogram your mind for positive
thinking, first you need to address your flawedbeliefs. Then, challenge them and replace them with
more empowering ones. In practice, this would begin with an acknowledgment
of your negative thoughts. It could be something along the lines of I
don’t feel deserving of love or I’m notgood enough. You might have a lot of these self-defeating
beliefs – and for every single one, you mustreplace it with a positive
belief – such as I am worthy of love and ahealthy relationship or I’m doing the best
I can. You control what you believe, and when you
harness that power, you can change your world. Number 3 – Choose Your Words CarefullyJust like your body language, the words you
speak and think have a huge impact on yourmindset. Establishing a vocabulary that utilizes positive
words is an essential habit for a healthymind. Studies have shown that positive self-talk
can help you regulate your emotions and improveyour overall psychological state. And, it doesn’t end there…The words you use with other people affect
how they respond to you – creating a feedbackloop. Whether that loop is positive or negative
is up to you. Before you begin to craft your personal dictionary,
you need to know what’s already in it. How do you label things or describe them in
conversation?When you talk about your emotions, is the
language full of intensity, understanding,or complexity?When you’re feeling uneasy about a presentation,
you might say that you’re “terrified”- but perhaps your just “a little nervous. ”If you’re having issues with your partner,
you could say that you’re “extremely furious”- but in reality, you may just be a bit “annoyed. ”When you tag your emotions with intensity,
your brain recognizes that and responds accordingly. If you are mindful and aware, you can tone
down your vocabulary and use language withless emotional power. This way, you will be able to stay more positive. Number 4 – Seek Out PositivityHave you ever met the kind of person who revels
in the worst details?They focus and hold onto bad moments – like
getting cut off in traffic, having a mediocremeal, or spilling a drink. If this sounds like you, it means that you’ve
trained your brain to focus on negativity. You might even be an expert by now, and undoing
years of training can be a challenge. Fortunately, you can train your brain to seek
out positivity. Instead of concentrating on moments that elicit
your negative emotions, you can begin to shiftyour focus to positive moments. Make it a point to consider positive information
and redirect your attention when you’refeeling negative. Turn optimism into a routine by seeking out
positivity in your life. Number 5 – Watch Your EnvironmentReprogramming your mind is a difficult task,
but you can make it easier by limiting thenegative influences in your environment. Your subconscious mind absorbs much more information
than you think. It takes in as much data as possible from
your surroundings – and uses it to form yourbeliefs, thoughts, and values. If you’re bombarded with negativity – whether
it’s from the news, social media, or toxicpeople in your life – your subconscious mind
is profoundly affected. You might not even realize it’s happening. Yes, that’s how powerful your environment
is!So make an effort to fill your life with positive
and supportive people. Surround yourself with books, music, clothing,
and art that bring you joy, lift up your spirits,and empower you. As time passes, you’ll see that these changes
to your environment influence your positivity- subconsciously encouraging you to be more
optimistic. Number 6 – Have An Emotional OutletPeople are emotional creatures. Some are better at revealing their emotions,
while others are better at hiding them. If you often suppress your negative emotions,
they build up inside you and contribute toyour negative mindset. Holding onto pessimistic thoughts or painful
memories will only end up hurting you in thefuture. It could lead to increased stress levels,
anxiety, or depression. Emotions can be intense – you will feel the
good and the bad – but, you can choose whatyou want to hold on to and what you want to
let go of. It’s important to embrace – and express
– your emotions. Allow yourself to feel your emotions, and
find an outlet to release the negative ones. Whether it’s a sport, a form of art, or
something else entirely – find an activityyou can put all that energy into. Number 7 – Look After Your BodyResearch has proven that your emotional state
is highly influenced by your lifestyle – includingyour diet, sleep schedule and exercise habits. To make positive thinking easier biologically,
you can adjust these factors as you need to. Take an honest inventory of how well you take
care of your body. Keep working on your good habits, get rid
of your bad ones, and establish better ones. When it comes to emotional health, diet plays
an especially huge factor. If you eat primarily processed foods, you’re
likely missing out on some essential nutrients. Think about how you can change what you eat
to support a healthy mind – as vitamin deficienciesare linked to mental health issues such as
anxiety and depression. And if you don’t get enough sleep, you could
become more irritable, angry, and pessimistic. Thus, it’s important to establish a sleep
schedule that gives you enough time to recharge. Taking care of your body is a simple way to
bring more positivity into your life. You’ll see improvements physically, mentally,
and emotionally when you establish a healthylifestyle. Positive thinking isn’t easy, and you won’t
reprogram your mind overnight. It takes time. Nevertheless, with the help of these tips,
you can learn to cultivate a more positiveoutlook on life. How are you doing on your journey toward positive
