Get into the habit of gently replacing negative thoughts with more helpful and rational thoughts.


Avoid suppressing, fighting, or engaging with negative thoughts in any way. Simply recognize them, take a deep breath, and become more mindful of your immediate surroundings.


Then, invite a nicer thought to replace it. Acknowledge that all emotions are impermanent. With patience, allow the wave of negativity to pass.


Try visualizing a relaxing experience with the help of calming photos.


Instead of letting yourself drown in negative thoughts, practice gently releasing negative energy so you can make wiser choices about how you respond to stressful situations.
