How to Challenge Negative Thoughts ?

How to Challenge Negative Thoughts?

Have you ever felt like your life was spiraling into disaster, even when things were actually improving? That was me for the past couple of years. Despite seeing progress around me, my mind was stuck in a loop of negativity. I kept asking myself, "Why do I feel this way when everything is getting better?"

It turns out, our minds are often resistant to change. We cling to familiar patterns, even if they no longer serve us. Every new chapter of life brings unique challenges, and without the same level of support or familiar routines, it’s easy to feel lost.

But here's the truth: 

We are always growing, evolving, and getting better, even if our minds don't immediately recognize it. Studies show that 80% of our thoughts are negative, and 95% of these thoughts are repetitive. It’s no wonder we struggle to see the positive changes happening around us.

So, how do we break free from this cycle? Here are three simple steps that helped me, and they might help you too:

1. Identify and Acknowledge: 

Start by recognizing your negative thoughts. Write them down and acknowledge that they don't define your reality.

2. Examine the Evidence: 

Challenge these thoughts by looking for evidence to the contrary. For instance, if you think, "I'm not progressing," list your recent achievements and improvements.

3. Reframe and Replace: 

Replace negative thoughts with positive affirmations and more realistic perspectives. For example, change "I can't do this" to "I’m learning and growing every day."

Remember, it’s natural for our minds to resist change, but by challenging these negative patterns, we can embrace a more positive and realistic outlook. 🌟
