When the feelings feel “cleared,” speak to yourself kindly and positively.
If you lost your job, tell yourself throughout the day, “I am capable of getting another job” or “I may find something even more fulfilling.”
If you’ve just gone through a break-up, tell yourself, “I am worthy of a supportive relationship” or “I am creating loving relationships in my life.”
Shifting negative, worrisome thoughts to more empowering ones can help us gradually shift our energy from negative to positive.
Many self-help authors tell us to “be positive” because having a positive attitude helps us get more out of life.
People are attracted to positive energy.
And positivity helps keep us motivated to continue doing the things we need to do.
