The mind is a powerful tool. When used correctly, it can propel you forward in life, give you peace, and manifest anything. However, if you’re feeling unspirited and unmotivated, you’re not alone. Many adults, and even children, feel stuck from time to time, making life a little more challenging than it needs to be.
Here at Brain Forest Centers, we pride ourselves in helping every superhero reach peak performance and take back control over their brains. This includes helping them create a more positive mindset that allows them to see the good or opportunity in every situation rather than misfortune and disappointment. Here are some of our tips that you can start implementing in your life to help create a more positive mindset.
Express Gratitude Daily
If you find yourself struggling to find the positive in life, start expressing daily gratitude. Write these gratitudes down first thing in the morning and watch your entire day begin to shift in the right direction. You can be thankful for family, friends, health, or anything your heart desires. Put this into practice for at least 21 days, and you’ll find that your mind awakens every day with something new to be grateful for. Expressing what you’re thankful for can help you change your negative thoughts and be a constant reminder of your good fortunes when you’re facing a hard time.
Often, we get discouraged by the negative comments of others or even by our negative self-beliefs. These can come in the form of self-doubt or negative comments such as, “I’m not enough,” “People won’t like me,” or “I don’t have the courage to do this.” The truth is, we all have these negative thoughts, and they can often lead to significant anxiety and depression in some individuals. Instead of dwelling on these beliefs, begin to counter them with more positive self-declarations. Try lifting yourself and giving yourself more grace. No one is expecting you to be perfect, and no one around you is perfect. We’re all human, and we all deserve love and kindness, especially from ourselves.
Journal Your Thoughts
It’s easy to get lost in your head and feel overwhelmed by all of the thoughts floating around. However, when you put your thoughts to paper, it can clear up your web of lies or negative thoughts and help you sort out your feelings. Journaling can also help you understand yourself better by letting you see the patterns within your thoughts. When you can examine these thoughts, you can see what triggers your mind to race and make adjustments in your lifestyle, leading to more happy, positive thoughts. Over time, these shifts will become more rewarding to your brain than the negative ones, and you’ll find yourself with a more positive mindset.
