4 Ways to Stop Negative Thinking Before It Starts
Stop complaining and start profiting, writes Inc.com columnist Andrew Thomas
1 — SLEEP
Research suggests that adults need seven to nine hours of sleep each night. The better rested you are, the more likely you are to look at things in a positive light.
2 — LAUGH
Laughter sends mood-lifting chemicals to your brain. Laugh more and you’ll be less focused on the bad.
3 — GIVE THANKS
Before you go to bed, write down three things you are grateful for that day.
4 — USE THE RUBBER-BAND TRICK
Complaining is unproductive. Snap a rubber band on your wrist every time you do it.
