“To Counter Negative Thinking Means To Shift The Way You Feel.”
One of the skills I wish I had learned early on as a child was how to counter negative thinking. We learn to fear as we grow up, and that fear can connect itself to other people, situations, and even to bodily sensations. So many times in our minds we only hear that one critical and fearful voice, but we don’t know how to listen to the opposing one.
There are two sides to every story, so why do we consistently listen to one? Because it gives us a sense of safety and security.
To be prepared for the threat means to avoid the threat (at least this is how we make it up in our minds). How common is this with health anxiety for example today? To brood over each and every symptom of anxiety, even though the doctors and every other professional on earth said they were a healthy person.
Negative thinking has its headquarters in the base of fear and doubt. We think negatively, so we express ourselves negatively (consciously and unconsciously), because we feel threatened in this day and age. Every day there are threats to our social status, our financial situation, and as the media frames it… our lives.
Negativity covers up the fact that we’re confused, our ego stays intact while our physical and emotional health becomes drained.
In todays podcast episode I want to reveal some knowledge you may not yet be aware of. As well as give you three powerful ways to counter negative thinking starting today. These methods are based around the teachings of cognitive behavioural therapy which I whole heartedly recommend if you’re currently dealing with anxiety.
With continued consciousness from moment to moment, and the mindset of guiding your mind towards a separate perspective, you will begin feeling just the way you deserve each day. In Episode #131 of The Anxiety Guy Podcast we’ll be digging into:
- What unconscious patterns keep a person thinking negatively
- How to properly and effectively counter negative thinking
- Why each epiphany you leads you one step closer to anxiety recovery
