1. Distract Yourself When You Feel Negativity Arise

2. Reframe Your Negative Interpretation

“You cannot change what has already happened. You can always change the way you respond.”

— Ron Kaufman

  • Be aware of your trigger (Knowing the cause of it)
  • Identify your emotion (Knowing what you feel when this trigger comes)
  • Spot and Swap (Spot your negative thought and swap them into a positive way)

3. Focus On Positive Moments In The Past

  • Write some positive moments in the past
  • Visualize and feel the positive moments in the past as a daily habit
  • Be consistent in recalling your positive experience in the past

Final Thought

“Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.”
