Mental Health Awareness…learn how to control your thoughts!

#mentalhealthawareness💚

Overthinking can be a BIG problem for most of us, we usually think on things we can’t control the most! Here are 5 tips to help control those thoughts:

#1– CONTROL YOUR THOUGHTS

“We can’t control our thoughts”

Yes you can by not thinking on everything that pops in your head. When the negative thoughts pop up, ask yourself “will this thought drain my energy”, how can I think on something better or different?

Most of the time those thoughts are unimportant and stress you out more.

Yes we have things we have to think about, but it’s how you react to them.

The goal isn’t to stop 🛑 thinking negative thoughts all together but learning how we react to them.

#2 – DON’T BELIEVE YOUR BRAIN

“Just because you think it, doesn’t make it true”

Really enough said about this, stop believing everything you think period…🤷🏽‍♀️

#3– BRING YOURSELF TO THE PRESENT

Mindfulness is so important, stop dwelling on the past, last week, and yesterday. Life is too short keep thinking about what would have happened.

When you bring yourself to the present, you move forward from the past.

Our past doesn’t define our future, so why should it ruin our thoughts?

#4– ACTION STOPS FEAR

Thoughts that are based on anxiety or worrying about a future event. It hasn’t happened so why the hell are you worrying now🤷🏽‍♀️

When we are feeling anxious, we are often fearing or dreading something that is coming up in the future. This could be a big event, a job interview or more abstract things like paying the bills, finding purpose in life etc.

Let it go girl….worrying doesn’t keep things from happening, but learn how to get through the situation. I promise it isn’t as bad as we usually think.

#5– CONTROL PLAN

A control plan is a list of things that you either can or cannot control.

CAN CONTROL:

•Hairstyle

•Makeup

•Clothes you put on

•Relationships

•Diet and Exercise

CANNOT CONTROL:

•Facial structure

•Body structure, God made you

•Height

•Others opinions of you

You get it right???? Try making a list of your own and see how this can help control those unwanted thoughts!
