Unknowingly we keep thinking negative things in our minds. There are several negative thinking patterns that lead to anxiety. It can be worrying too much about the future or jealous thinking in our mind, anything. When we talk about skipping anxiety or reducing the causes, it's very necessary to talk about 'negative thinking pattern'.
When we choose to think about 'all the negative things happen' to us, that's the worse we do to ourselves. Like, no one loves us, every bad thing happens to us, I will never achieve my goals ie. This is so common and we get used to it that it's hard to get rid of this. Another thing is emotional thinking and jumping to a conclusion. Like he talked like that so he might stay apart from me. This thinking pattern just ruins us.
There are should and shouldn't in our mind, it's hard to decide what to take. Also, we often ignore good things in life. This patter and negative thought processes are something that happens automatically. But overpowering positive thinking can help us.
What to do?
Replace positive words, thinking with it. Think about what life gives to you, what best thing happens to yourselves. There's no other way to feel, improve, and bring positivity in life rather cultivating positive thinking. Be with positive people, think positively, talk, and stay positive.
A positive mentality is the best open to deal with anxiety. But before that recognizing negative thinking patter is necessary to find out what leads us to produce more anxiety. I always believe that it can counter the automatic negative thought process. Try it, you will be amazed. I hope it's gonna help!
