How to Stop Negative Thoughts from Getting You Down

“Negative thoughts stick around because we believe them, not because we want them or choose them.” ~ Andrew J. Bernstein

On a regular basis, are you bothered by negative, unwanted thoughts? If the answer is yes, don’t freak out. The average person has up to 60,000 thoughts a day so some of them are bound to be negative! Plus, studies show that 85% of the stuff we worry about actually ends up having a positive or neutral outcome.

But before you make up your mind to rid yourself of negative thoughts completely, remember that accepting negative emotions can actually be a powerful way to move forward. In fact, trying to be constantly upbeat can actually make us unhappier.

So how exactly do we stop negative thoughts? Try listening to upbeat music or writing them down and tearing them up. Researchers at the University of Notre Dame suggest something as simple as a change of setting to help you break free of negative thoughts.
