The first step is to pay attention to all your negative thoughts during the course of your day, and you can bet they’ll be quite a few to choose from. Write the negative thoughts down and during a calm moment to go over your list. Check out the list without emotion as if it didn’t belong to you and while deep breathing, imagine that the the items on the list are just floating away into infinity. You are releasing the negative charge on that list. This is one of many techniques to take control of your thoughts and actions.
