The mind is like a garden: Pull the weeds. Trim the hedges. Whenever some negative external force comes my way, I don't fight it, I face it head on, observing it's odd nature. Cause deep down I know, I'm in the business of blooming flowers!
Positive thinking exercises are to rid your life of thoughts like: "My life sucks", "Things will never get better", "I'll never be able to pay for these expenses", "I'm no good" - Do they sound familiar?
These are the thoughts of negative thinkers.
These thoughts that may be with you now or were a part of your life some time ago. But now it is time for a change!
1. Fill your mind with positive thoughts
Positive thinking exercises are just like any form of exercise. Repetition on a daily basis leads to us getting fitter and healthier. The same applies to our minds.
Actively seek out positive thoughts whether it be about you or someone else or something else. This is not a self esteem building exercise as such. It is a practice that makes for a worthy long term habit of a healthy mind.
