Positive thinking and its power is often dismissed. You can be accused of being naive, having your head in the clouds, even being stupid. We would ask though, what’s the alternative?
In these troubled times, with a global pandemic, it is understandable to worry, we are in uncharted territory. The reality is, other than following Government guidelines, there is nothing else we can do to affect the outcome. Even in better times we spend a lot of time either worrying about the future or regretting what we have done in the past.
The trouble is, neither of these mindsets lead us to a healthy place mentally or, in the longer term, physically, it’s well established that stress effects our physical wellbeing as well as mental. Regret leads to us beating ourselves up and, usually, we have control about the things we are worried about.
Instead of worrying about a particular thing, work out what the opposite of that bad outcome would be and focus on how you might achieve that. If it’s something you can’t affect (someone else’s health for instance), forget about it, you have no control. If it’s something you can affect (your own health), figure out what steps you need to take to achieve that positive outcome. Even if you don’t achieve that goal does not mean you’ve failed.

In the meantime though remember, you have a choice about the way you feel. So, why not focus on the positive outcome?
