Has it ever happened to you? You lie in your bed in the middle of the night, and think about the unpleasant event, that poison your mind all day. You’re considering options, wondering how it could get better. You’re worried. You feel your pulse accelerate and you will not sleep again tonight.
Think now how often it has happened to you to can not fall asleep, but not for something bad that has happened or can happen, but for something that has made you happy. Something ,which make you smiling or because of a dream you can not wait to do? Never? Yes, this is because our brain is so designed as to think about how to protect us from pain. That is why your focus so often focuses on things that scare, hurt and worry. And do you imagine what it would be like if we were so obsessed with the good things than the bad … Fortunately, there is a way. Besides the brain wants to protect you, it has another feature: the ability to think only of one thought. Knowing this ,is much easier when negative thoughts arise in your mind, to replace them immediately with a positive one. The more you do this, the easier it will be to control the negativism in your head and focus on the good things.
Yes, negative thoughts will always exist, they are an indispensable part of our daily lives. But perhaps this is the healthy way of developing things, and if you try to give them twice less attention and importance ,if you do not give them the power to control your life, things will change very soon and you will see how bealtuful your life will be! Just try.
