I’m not saying we have to be happy all the time.
That isn’t balance either.
Here’s the dealio: When we’re experiencing negative emotions for long periods of time, it can have a negative impact on our health.
The next time you catch yourself thinking negative thoughts, try these tips:
- allow yourself to feel what you’re feeling
- process the feelings (get professional help if you think you need it)
- and then shift to what’s happening in the present moment — walking outside and tuning in to natural surroundings often helps
So whenever you can, do your best to be mindful of what’s on your mind!
