Clearly, there are many benefits of positive thinking , but why exactly does positive thinking have such a strong impact on physical and mental health. One theory is that people who think positively tend to be less affected by stress. Another possibility is that people who think positively tend to live healthier lives in general; they may exercise more, follow a more nutritious diet and avoid unhealthy behaviors.
While the terms "positive thinking" and "positive psychology" are sometimes used interchangeably, it is important to understand that they are not the same thing. First, positive thinking is about looking at things from a positive point of view. Positive psychology certainly tends to focus on optimism, but it also notes that while there are many benefits to thinking positively, there are actually times when more realistic thinking is more advantageous.
Even if you are not a natural-born optimist, there are things you can do to learn how to think positive and become a positive thinker. One of the first steps is to focus on your own inner monologue and to pay attention to your self-talk. Learn the best ways to manage stress and negativity in your life. There was an error.

I often feel negative about sharp things around me and make me feel uncomfortable……. Hi Salman. We all have our different fears and worries. How do we want to relate to the thoughts and emotions that are arising in the present moment?
We can choose new ways of relating to difficult thoughts and emotions. We can respond to them mindfully. Give this article a read as well. It will teach you how to deal with negative emotions mindfully and gain a new perspective on the negativity as it arises. Thanks for the reference article, I have read this article many time and it was really very helpful and it help me to realize that I am not my fear and I have to be more generous toward my negative emotion rather than fight back. As I was trap in the negativity for quite long more than 5 years so it is very persistent within me, but I have to take care of it and Insh Allah soon this wounded part will be recovered fully.
Hi Salman, yes, you are not your fear! You are not your negative emotions, but still, we all need to learn to work more skilfully when these difficult emotions and thoughts arise. The best advice i could ever give you my friend, is to go ahead an begin learning the practice of mindfulness. Begin a daily practice even if it is only short 10 or 15 mins a day and you will get better and better able to handle the challenges of life both inner and outer ones. The best way to learn would be to find a local course or retreat to learn with a skilled teacher.

I feel that I need a lot of support from my family. How can I ask them to support me? I find it so ordinary and my brain is just so focused on the next target. Hii, I am also In a situation of negative thinking all the time and I will surely try out this method but I am a little confused in the choosing constructive or destuctive thoughts part, what exactly I have to do in that part.
Please help me out. Hi, Wasim. I find one way to really generate constructive thoughts rather than destructive ones is to first of all notice if i am ruminating or worrying. These kinds of questions re-orient the mind and generate new kinds of thoughts, new perspectives and new ways of responding to life. I hope this is helpful. Thanks so much for sharing some key tips. It feels refreshing getting a new sense of hope for my negative thinking. One question i have, i keep hearing that i should not try to fight or push negative thoughts and as you said be an impartial observer, but how exactly can i do that?
