Positive Thinking From The Start

Discussion in 'Sobriety Tips and Inspiration' started by VitaMuse, Mar 3, 2015.

  1. Sure. The thoughts you wake up to play a key factor in how the rest of your day will play out. Be positive, and keep your head up high. It's difficult at first, but you'll get through it. The little things, be thankful for them all.

    I think mindsets can be a huge thing in helping with our outlook on life. When I think positive it seems to permeate to so many other areas - but when I'm negative it does that too and makes life seem terrible and miserable in every way! I much prefer trying to see the positive!

    There is a wide range of techniques that can help with this. Reframing is one of them and has already been mentioned. Sure, it takes time and you have to be persistent and constant with it but eventually it's worth it. We need to realize that we can control our thoughts and that our thoughts directly affect our emotions. We can therefore choose how we feel. We need to get into the habit of positive thinking. Surely, that can only be a good addiction?!
