Instead of bringing more compassion and love into the world and to myself, I was mentally, physically, and emotionally exhausted from my negative over-thinking. But it had become a habit, and the more I practiced over-thinking, the more ingrained the habit became.
Over-thinking, negative thought patterns, and excessive worry can lead to feelings of low self-esteem and low self-confidence. And excessive worry and negativity can lead to anxiety and depression.
Is it possible to unhook from these looping negative thoughts and be in sync with the goodness of our own being? Can we disengage and reclaim our thoughts and our emotional well-being?
Yes it is possible!
It is not only possible, but it’s essential for simple happiness.
Our well-being and happiness hinge on our ability to live in the present moment, drawing energy and joy from the deep reservoir within, as well as from our outward actions and choices.
Self-awareness is always the first step toward change. So we should regularly seek an exit ramp off the freeway of our frenzied busy-mindedness and negative thought patterns.
The best way to break the habit of negative thought patterns is simply through awareness and interruption. Once you catch yourself in a loop of over-thinking, you must do something to break the cycle. Behind interruption, you can take simple life actions in your daily life to take your mind off of negative thoughts and begin to feel happier in general.
