The ability to turn negative thoughts into positives can be a powerful tool for overcoming stress. It allows you to take control of your thoughts, beliefs and attitudes to influence the outcome in a more positive way.
- Make a commitment to yourself to control and practice positive self-talk.
- Practice turning negative thoughts into positives. (example: “Things always go wrong” to “I can handle this one step at at time.”)
- Challenge yourself to view stress whether positive or negative, as an opportunity for new learning
