How to get rid of Negative thoughts /Negative emotions ~
“The Awareness Plan” ~ By ~ Kapil Jain
Many times, there are situations which create negative self talk and generate negative emotions. We have no control on the negative thoughts which cross our minds. However we can control our behavior to such negative thoughts. The key lies in understanding the difference between reacting vis-à-vis responding.
Reaction is a spontaneous action, an impulsive and involuntary action towards a situation without any thought or awareness. Whereas, a Response is a controlled action/inaction which is carried under full awareness of the consequences.
How can one develop this wonderful habit so that it becomes a part our being.
Create a “The Awareness Plan”
It’s actually only a list of Things that I can do in any given situation that will make me an aware person. Here are my favorite 4 Things.
1. Focus on Breath. This can be done 3-4 times a day & in any place. Close your eyes and take slow deep breaths around 20-25 times and then get back to what you were doing.
2. Smile at people you don’t know (as well as people that you do know). This creates a positive vibration within in your subconscious and makes you a happy person in general
3. Take a walk in nature, preferably early morning. Look, listen, smell and touch as much of nature as you possibly can. Nature does not hurry, yet everything is established. Associating self with nature is an Incredible, powerful, meaningful and peaceful experience. It helps you to reach within.
4. Listen to your favorite music. Lao Tzu has said “Music in the soul can be heard by the universe”
So go ahead and create your awareness plan in your journey towards self discovery and inner peace and ultimately Being happy –
