Your level of happiness is a learned skill that is easy to learn. Anyone can learn to bust a bad mood or look at the world through more upbeat and optimistic eyes. We show practice ways to do it now.
The first technique to practice was discussed in our last blog. Did you read the last blog? Importantly, did you practice it? If not, please review the first technique and get going. So please practice our first technique called, De-tox Your Mind.
Here’s the 2nd technique to practice this week: Optimism and Happiness by the Numbers
Are you obsessed with negative thoughts that lead you to a bad mood? A simple way to become happy and optimistic is to count your way to more positive thoughts. It’s easy to become an expert at switching your negative and bad thoughts to more positive and upbeat thoughts and feelings. All you need to do is focus on counting and switching your bad thoughts to upbeat and uplifting thoughts.
Each time you have a negative thought, immediately switch to a positive thought or solution to your woes. Write a tally mark on a pad of paper each time you switch like this each day.
Your goal is to decrease the number of times you need to switch. For example, at first you may need to switch 50 times daily. In time, you will decrease it to 30, 20 or 10 times a day. If you are obsessively negative, you will become obsessively positive using this technique.
