We also don’t have to be around people in order to feel negative or have negativity around us. We also can experience negativity in our minds as well. We can easily fall prey to negative thoughts and thinking. And it is not easy to avoid when we are alone.

Negative thoughts drain your energy and keep you from being in the moment. It makes you feel overwhelmed and you end up getting headaches from the constant negative thinking.

Overcoming negativity or negative thoughts is the way to go. It is not easy to overcome. It is not an easy ordeal to get over. But keeping negativity at bay is how we can live life negative free.

Here are a few tips to overcome negative thinking:

Surround yourself with positive people: If you live alone, call your friends or loved ones who are always welcoming to keep you distracted from your thoughts.

Change the tone of your thinking from negative to positive: Instead of saying, “I can’t do this.” Instead you can say, “I will give my best efforts to do this knowing I tried even if I fail.”

Help someone: Sometimes helping others can be a way for you to not think negatively. You’re out of your own head and you’re keeping positive for the person you’re helping. This way it is easier to think more positive things.

Read positive quotes: This helps me whenever I am feeling down about myself. It’s a reminder that better things are coming.

Draw or colouring: Everything is online nowadays. So downloading a colouring app and doing some coloring for a few hours can keep your anxiety at ease.

Write a list of things you’re grateful/thankful for: Like a gratitude journal. This will remind you do things you have that others don’t. It’ll make you feel better and think more positive about your current situation and not feel sorry for yourself.
