Humans are complicated beings with complicated minds. According to one Science journal, we have anywhere between 12 and 50 THOUSAND thoughts per day.

With that many thoughts coursing through our heads each day, it’s no wonder that many people struggle with managing their mental health.

In this two-part article, we offer some psychological hacks to help you maintain more positive thoughts throughout your day. 

  • Recognize all the times you got it right. Rather than wake up each morning anxiousabout what didn’t get done on the to-do list, focus on what’s going well.
  • Protect your emotional well-being day with the Big Three: Quality sleep, lots of water, and slow, deep-breathing.
  • Consider your options when catastrophic thinkingthreatens to derail your mood. Close your eyes (this helps to block out stimulation) and fill in the blanks: I am afraid of ________. The worst-case scenario would be ________. On a scale of 1-10, the likelihood of this happening is ________. If this happens, I can do ________ and ________ and ________, instead of worry, feel helpless or stuck.
  • Talk less.You don’t need to explain yourself as much as you think you do.
  • Share your talents. When things don’t go your way it’s easy to think you’re a failure. You’re not. Switch the dial and notice your unique gifts. Find someone to help out.
