Is negativity your natural default

Is negativity your natural default?

For many of us, negativity is our natural default.
We find ourselves constantly listening to the negative loop that plays in our head over and over again without a stop button.
This negative loop can play a role in our happiness levels.

Lets change the setting on our default button and go from negative to positive.
First, start paying attention to your thoughts- self awareness is key!
When you notice that negative loop playing, stay there for a few seconds and notice the thought.
Make a conscious choice to say “Stop” to the thought.
You can also say things as:
This thought is not useful
This thought is not helping/serving me in a positive way
I don’t need to have this thought
These thoughts repeated over and over again cause beliefs. These beliefs don’t serve you and need to go.

Just becoming aware of your negative thoughts stops the process
Refusing to allow the thoughts to remain and choosing not to believe in old, limiting beliefs opens the door to positive thoughts
This stops the negativity that has been on autopilot and brings you into the present moment.
In the present moment we can think with clarity and love.
