Feeling anxious, worried, or angry? We all have moments like that, but those thoughts don’t have to throw off the entire day.
Practicing mindfulness means understanding that our thoughts are temporary, fleeting, and will soon be replaced with other thoughts. Once you fully train yourself to accept this, you’ll be able to take the next step – replacing negative thoughts with positive thoughts!
Today, notice when you’re feeling a negative thought, take a deep breath in, and as you exhale, picture the negativity exiting your body.
Try to flood your mind with positivity – start thinking of things that you’re grateful for, distract yourself by noticing the sensation of your clothes against your skin, or the ground beneath your feet.
