10 Tips to Overcome Negative Thoughts: Positive Thinking Made Easy

“See the positive side, the potential, and make an effort.” ~Dalai Lama

Even though I’m a yoga teacher, I still find it’s easy to fall prey to negative thinking. Having negative thoughts play out like a movie can only bring you pain, something that I’ve experienced many times throughout my life.

Negative thoughts drain you of energy and keep you from being in the present moment. The more you give in to your negative thoughts, the stronger they become. I like the imagery of a small ball rolling along the ground, and as it rolls, it becomes bigger and faster.

That’s what one small negative thought can turn into: a huge, speeding ball of ugliness. On the contrary, a small positive thought can have the same effect blossoming into a beautiful outcome.

I’d like to share with you an example of how one small thought can turn into a very negative experience.

I have lived on my own for the last ten years. Obviously during this time, I’ve grown accustomed to living in a particular way; I have my routines with cooking, cleaning, and living happily in my place.

My boyfriend of two years, who I have had a long distance relationship with, will soon be moving here and we will be living together. Lately, I’ve had negative thoughts of moving in with him knowing that my living routine will have to change and we will have to create a new routine together.

Unfortunately, I’ve already jumped into the future and have had thoughts that we will not be able to come up with a living arrangement that will make us both happy. In my mind, I have seen myself already getting angry about our cooking and cleaning situation.

He came for a surprise visit this past weekend and boy, was it a surprise for him. We had a miserable weekend together.

I did not enjoy his company because I was already angry with him, and he was confused and equally frustrated with me. What could have been a really fabulous weekend ended up being a painful and heavy weekend.

When we start to have negative thoughts, it’s hard to stop them. And it’s much easier said than done to shift your focus to positive thoughts. But, it’s the only way, especially if you want to avoid going down a path that is painful and unnecessary.

Here are ten things I did to help overcome my negative thoughts that you can also try:

1. Meditate or do yoga.

One of the first things I did was head to a yoga class. It took my focus away from my thoughts and brought my attention to my breath. Yoga is also very relaxing which helped ease my mind. Yoga helped me stay present to my experience so instead of jumping to what could happen, it brought me back to the now—the only moment, the most important moment.

2. Smile.

I didn’t do much of this during the weekend so I literally had to bring myself in front of a mirror and force myself to smile. It really does help change your mood and relieve stress. I also felt lighter because it takes fewer muscles to smile than to frown.

3. Surround yourself with positive people.

I called a friend who I knew could give me constructive, yet loving feedback. When you’re stuck in a negative spiral, talk to people who can put things into perspective and won’t feed your negative thinking.

4. Change the tone of your thoughts from negative to positive.

For example, instead of thinking, “We are going to have a hard time adjusting to our living situation,” think, “We will face some challenges in our living situation, but we will come up with solutions that we will both be happy with.”

5. Don’t play the victim. You create your life—take responsibility.

The way I was thinking and acting, you would think I was stuck. Even if our living situation becomes unbearable, there is always a way out. I will always have the choice to make change happen, if need be.

6. Help someone.

Take the focus away from you and do something nice for another person. I decided to make a tray of food and donate it to the Salvation Army. It took my mind off of things and I felt better for helping someone else.

7. Remember that no one is perfect and let yourself move forward.

It’s easy to dwell on your mistakes. I felt terrible that I acted this way and that I wasted our weekend. The only thing I can do now is learn from my mistakes and move forward. I definitely don’t want to have a weekend like that again.

8. Sing.

I don’t remember lyrics very well and it’s probably the reason that I don’t enjoy singing, but every time I do sing I always feel better . When we sing, we show our feelings and this provides an amazing stress relief.

9. List five things that you are grateful for right now.

Being grateful helps appreciate what you already have. Here’s my list: My cats, health, a six-week trip to Asia, a new yoga class that I’ll be teaching, and for my mom’s biopsy coming out clean.

10. Read positive quotes.

I like to place Post-It notes with positive quotes on my computer, fridge door, and mirror as reminders to stay positive. Also, I’d like to share with you a quote by an unknown author that was shared in a meditation class that I attended:

Watch your thoughts, they become words.
Watch your words, they become actions.
Watch your actions, they become habits.
Watch your habits, they become your character.
Watch your character, it becomes your destiny.

Happy positive thinking!

    Hi Michelle,

    Thanks for your post. Perfect timing. I, too, had some negative thoughts/fears that consumed me and I was in a sour mood for a while. This was exactly what I needed to be reminded of. Thank you!

    Michelle, It sounds like you may have more going on than you realize. Some negative thoughts about your fear of harmoniously navigating a new routine together probably wouldn't cause a painful and miserable weekend. I would guess you have some repressed anger you are dealing with and these ten tips, although excellent to practice daily, seem like putting a band aid on a broken leg. Just a word of caution about the possibility of undermining your feelings and reframing your “miserable experience” with something easier to deal with than the truth. I did this myself for many years and while I radiated positivity, my self-esteem suffered and it showed up in the quality of my relationships because I wasn't acknowledging my real feelings. Going deeper is a harder and messier however, the dividend is huge: living authentically.

  • http://alwayswellwithin.com/ sandralee

    I like the image of the small thought turning into a big ball of ugliness, which so well illustrates how negativity can get out of control. I appreciate your grounded realistic, approach. We all have these negative habits patterns and it takes the awareness and dedication you highlight to slowly erode them away, but it's doable. Thanks for the encouragement.

    Hey. Just stumbled across your article through Twitter. Those thoughts are so good to have. I also find writing all the negative thoughts down, so that you can put them out of your head. You don't have to bother about them then.

    Is it okay if i post these on my blog? It is so useful to have these.

    Thanks, torie.

    Thanks for the list. I love number 6, “help someone.” I'm not a religious person anymore, but I love to pray for people- including strangers. I imagine them smiling and happy as I intentionally feel good. It brings joy and a sense of purpose and according to some scientific data prayer and meditation on subjects can actually change the course of events, bringing those prayers into reality. I use a method explained by author Paul Pearsall's interpretation of Polynesian prayer; every joyful moment is a powerful prayer- so, do a dance, sing a song, and hold the prayer that joy will come to others and the world while you're feeling that infectious joy. Another thing I like to do is challenge the thoughts that are bringing me sadness. I describe this more on my “happy 4 free” article. Once again, thanks for the tips and sharing your story :)

    The opposite of light is dark , the coin has two sides , there’s both positive and negative , we need a balance of the two to achieve real enlightenment !!

    as the old saying goes , plan for the worst , hope for the best and expect something in between

    learn as i have to balance between both the plus and negatives and derive energy from both to develop real power and understanding

    we must learn not to fear the dark it gives the light a place to shine just as death is a means to an end

    without sadness and pain there would be nothing for us to compare the good things in life to

    i get the shits at people who are so blind they have to focus on only positive things living in the optimistic realm , as to with someone who thoughts are only for the negative always pessimistic outlook

    how many of us go around talking only of neutrality or common ground ? lets learn to face reality and deal with what is real

    Who is rich? He that is content. Who is that? Nobody. Benjamin Franklin

    Great advice!

    We have the ability to remove any negative thoughts whenever we want to. Most people just simply don’t understand that. Once you realize that you have complete and total control over your thoughts and actions, and I mean REALLY realize it, life suddenly becomes much more enjoyable.

    Here’s a good article that I read on how to help overcome negativity and sadness PHYSICALLY, it’s great advice as sometimes physical things can help us mentally, sometimes it can be hard to control our thinking.

    Sometimes the best thing you can do is just “ACCEPT” your negative thoughts, without clinging to them or trying to run away. I don’t believe it’s possible to ever fully rid your mind of negative thoughts or emotions. But the good news is you don’t have to be overpowered by these negative thoughts or emotions. Just let them drift by…like clouds in the sky…

  • http://www.theemotionmachine.com/ Steven

    Exactly. The occasional emotional pain (like physical pain) is actually an important part of a fully functional and healthy human being. Pain is a signal we can learn from, not something we should try to push away or avoid.

  • http://www.theemotionmachine.com/ Steven

    I fell into a similar trap when I first got into the positivity movement. I felt like I wasn’t allowed to be negative ever, and if I did then I must’ve been doing something wrong. It eventually motivated me to write my post “Permission to Be Negative.

    Sometimes negative thoughts and feelings are there for a good reason. We should listen to them, learn from them, and then let them go. Trying to run away or suppress negativity can actually backfire in the end.

    Having been labelled pessimistic at times, in  my own opinion my thoughts are not pessimistic but rather …..there are 2 sides to a coin, not everything is black or white, there are colors and I think more so, insight into a situation. When you can see or feel the possibilities you can be less pessimistic.  Happy I found this blog!

    Michelle,

    We humans are inherently negative creatures. Our natural tendency is to find fault with things. We like to compare. We like to judge.

    Being positive takes real effort. It takes perseverance. It takes patience. It does not always work but we must keep trying. The results are always worth the effort.

    Thanks for all the great ideas!

    So, I need to get something off of my chest. Its really ironic but as of 3 months ago I moved up to nyc with my fiancee but once a week I go back to my aunts and my moms house because they live together. Well when I’m in nyc I’m happy as can be, but when i’m at my aunts/moms I feel like a failure I feel as if everything I do is wrong. Now I only come back to help out my mom but still when I come back I always feel down . My aunt is always complaining about everything as well as blaming her problems on others and no matter what everything has to be her way.
    I never have time to myself , they always see me as a child and not matter what I do somethings always wrong. Most of the friends I’ve had in the area have gone off as well or the ones I thought were true were actually fake.
    So not much support there.
    So my question is how do you get away from negativity when there’s nowhere to go. Not a person around to hug, When there’s no escape except when you leave ?

    I think your suggestion to list 5 things that you are grateful for is spot on. Feeling gratitude always lifts my mood and gets me into harmony with the universe. Sometimes at first it feels like a chore, but after abut 30 seconds, I always feel my mood lighten and I feel more in harmony with the universe.

    Great page!!

  • Jon

    In reference to item #9 on your list, I do something similar. I have 7 questions printed on a piece of paper that I hung in a prominent place, so I remember to answer all 7 every day. The questions are:

    1. What am I happy about right now?
    2. What am I excited about right now?
    3. What am I proud of right now?
    4. What am I grateful for right now?

    5. What am I enjoying right now?
    6. What am I committed to right now?
    7. Who do I love, and who loves me?

  • Manav Lalotra

    If any thought is there for good reason, I personally feel that it cannot be negative!! :) can it be? We need to be first be sure about what is Positive and Negative before we start practicing it! and it has to be +ve or -ve for me and not for others.. I do not have to do or act in a way how someone else would have since that would be that person’s +ve or -ve.. so it is always internal.. :)
    Stay blessed!! Om Shanti..

    Too bad I am not able to come up with *anything* positive. My life is going to be a mess; I only hope that it will be very short and that I will die soon.

    Hi there,

    I didn’t write this post, but I just read your comment and I am worried for you. Why do you hope you will die soon? What’s going on?

    Sending love your way,

    hi at the moment i seem to going through a difficult time understanding my partner for the past 20 years weve watched our children grow up together and i been by the side of my partner through out but now theres bit of a crisis as my partner now works in town and goes to the gym after work every night and i dont see her til late i love so much but i feel that in my mind that she,s been drawn away from me and ive been left with the responsabilitys of running the farm and other pieces of land by my self and i feel left out ? i need advise please anyone i feel like im going out of my mind!

  • Ryan Sumner

    Good article. I can agree that doing these things will change your thought process slowly from negative to positive from experience. Another good thing to add is your house. If you have a messy and disorganized house you won’t feel to good and you’ll get frustrated when you can’t find something you need. When I started to clean and organize my garage I began to feel better.

    I found your article helpful.I had a somewhat disturbed childhood which made me a little emotionally unstable.I am now happy with my life but don’t know why I feel negative,deeply sad and detached sometimes.I think I need to work on myself.I find it difficult to forgive people if they hurt me and I don’t know why I always love to be in the past when the present is so beautiful.Thanks for such a beautiful article.

  • bas

    thank you.. changed my mood just reading it..

  • dusty

    i try to think positive but every time i try my sub-conscious turns it into a negative comment how the heck do i stay positive when that happens?

  • Ren

    Yes ok……poof a parachute appears. That’s just positive thinking for you!. There’s no use whatsoever for negative thinking, it can be subtle dude but easy to identify if you make it

  • Ren

    I don’t remember lyrics very well!! That’s positive thinking? If you told yourself via positive thinking I remember lyrics very well (affirmation) you would be surprised at the result….for example you would just happen to come a cross a technique which would teach you how to remember things effectively :-) subtleties got to love em.

  • Ren

    That is TRUE lord although you cannot be in both darkness and light its black or white son.. No in between which do you prefer??

    Why isn’t your mind thinking about sex with him and the fun of cooking with him and fun activities with him? That is what I would think about. My husband has terminal cancer so I’m lucky for every second I have with him. Don’t waste time with petty differences. Start doing fun things with him and live! Don’t have another miserable weekend or he might not move in. Life is a LOT shorter than you think.

    Brilliant tips. You’ll be pleased to know I join you in never knowing the lyrics to songs as my 12 year old son is so keen to point out. Still I sing and love it.

  • Pingping

    Thanks for sharing such a beautiful perspective. Negative thoughts can become obsessive and affect our ability to perceive and react. Worse, it can even kill brain cells. Indeed, positive thinking is the key ingredient for a better healthier and happier life. You bring awareness in your life through positive thinking. And awareness makes up for peace of mind. Peace to you all =)

    Michelle, thank you for writing this. It has helped me getting through the days which could have otherwise be spent in misery.

  • Alex

    True but the context is important. Positive thinking is a higher form of rationalizing the good and the bad in life. It doesn’t mean that we pretend that all is well, but rather be cognizent of reality and simply analyze it rationally. To me that is positive thinking. Of course there are things that one can hardly rationalize (victim of a crime, child’s death, etc) but for the most part our problems are more or less the same (money, job, gossip, cheating, etc.) and those we can rationalize.

  • jerahmeel

    Maybe it’s God convicting you telling you to get married before you co-habitate

  • Diane

    What about listening to what your instincts are telling you??? Maybe your spirit is willing to listen and you are not. Perhaps it’s not the right thing to do. God gave us this sense, why are you ignoring it?
