Emotions are what express the present status of any human being. It is the positive thinking that can drive you to success.

On contrary, negativity can make you the loser of your life. In today’s life it’s very easy to fall prey to negative thinking. Negative emotions are just like a movie which can only give you pain and loneliness many times throughout your life.

Negative emotions consume your inner energy and peace and steal your present from your life. The most menacing problem of these emotions are that once you start thinking about them, they start to accumulate more and more and become stronger which will make it harder to change. If you know a few tricks, you can easily overpower your adverse emotions and achieve whatever you want from your life.

So, let’s check out 7 great tips to overcome your negative emotions:

 

1. Face the mirror

It is a common phenomenon that humans can see the reality about himself/herself only by standing in front of the mirror. This case stands true in case of negative thinking too. Whenever you feel yourself to be the slave of your emotions that hurts you, stand in front of the mirror and dare to look into your eyes in the mirror.

You will see your dull face due to that negativity within your mind. And as you come to know that you are becoming dull, start energizing your mirror image. Boost him to expel that thinking. It has been seen that a person can perform a task only when he has the inner desire to do that task. Similar to that, when you see yourself within the mirror, your mind will stop bringing negative thoughts and in reverse to that, it will start boosting your soul to energize.

2. Recall your happy moments

Whether it is a happy occasion or a sad one, memories are made to delight you. There are many situations, when your negative emotions start hurting your inner peace. In that case, old and happy memories are the best remedy. Whenever you feel unhappy, start recalling your happiest moments. Within minutes, you will see a smile on your face. A new charm will replace the dullness.

 

3. Get surrounded by cheerful people

Loneliness is the home for cynical feelings. The best alternative for it is to change your environment. Whenever you feel like negative sentiments and you are alone, go out to some pragmatic area. You can call your friends and run a get together. Actually, in terms of science, whenever a task is allotted to the mind, it stops working on the existing one and starts thinking about the new task you put in your focus. Your mind will get busy on planning the meeting with your friends and all your destructive emotions will come to an end.

 

4. Start your hobby

When you find yourself uncomfortable because of negative emotions, start doing your hobby. Many people love to read books, many love to sing, others love to listen to music. All these hobbies are the best medicine to curb adverse emotions present within your body.

As soon as you notice negativity, start your hobby, like for example start reading a book you love to read. Your mind will automatically get diverted from recalling negative thoughts. Also, by reading your favorite book, your mind as well as your body will feel relaxed and positive emotions start to spark within you.

It will act accordingly. If you need motivation, you need positive feelings. To get positive feelings, you need some positive source to read.

It may sound silly, but this is also known as laughing therapy to bring life back to hopeless people. To convert your negative emotions into positive ones, come to a place of peace and start laughing loudly. Laugh artificially once, twice, or three times. Later you will automatically start laughing naturally. To implement this, you must not bother about what others will say after seeing me laugh like this.

  1. Hi Ravinder,

    Thank you for these wonderful tips.

    Laughter is indeed a fantastic antidote to negative feelings. It releases the charge created by negative feelings almost instantaneously.

    The motivational videos on this site http://addicted2success.com/category/videos/ do also a fantastic job to transform low feelings. To watch them would qualify as tip 8 for your list. 🙂

    Circumstances and people around us only trigger the low feelings if they were already present in us. The most powerful way to deal with negative emotions is to surrender them. Eventually they run out and we can not be triggered any more. There is a phenomenal book by Dr Hawkins M.D. Ph.D. called Letting Go, The Pathway to Surrender which describes this process and underpins with scientific research.

    Tip 7 really inspired me, I will try the laughter therapy!

    Cheers,

    Esther
