1- Be mindful of your thoughts:
Don’t let your thoughts run unmonitored. Think about what you think, be aware. In fact try this out, whenever you have a negative thought, stomp on the ground! While you stomp, imagine you are stomping the negative thought.
2- Replace EVERY negative thought with a positive one:
For example- “I am worthless”
Replace this with “I am not as bad as I think about myself. I have a great personality, have had a great education, have a supportive family and many blessings that I discard. Maybe I am lost at the moment but I will figure it all out in due time.
3- Add to your existing bucket of knowledge:
This can be done by reading a book, watching motivational videos or even following someone who was stuck in a similar situation but eventually got out of it.
4- Take action:
Even if it is the smallest of actions. This includes making your bed in the morning, having a glass of water when you wake up, taking a shower regularly, going out for a walk/jog, working out, going out for coffee. Does not matter if it’s a small action but what’s important is you need to be consistent. You need to do it EVERYDAY.
