Shift Your Negative Thoughts for Peace of Mind & Well-being: Here's the Trick!

One path toward shifting your thoughts, particularly your judgmental or negative thoughts, is through sustained non-judgmental attention or meditation. Meditation is the experience of sustaining one’s focus on a thought, word, sensation or sound in order to calm the mind. Mindful meditation is the act of calming your mind and body through non-judgmental sustained attention. If you're prone to rumination, negative thinking or catastrophizing, mindful meditation is a skill you may wish to explore. Do you feel overwhelmed by any of the follow?

  • work
  • life
  • people
  • finances 
  • parenting

Cultivating a sense of peace, developing more neutral thoughts and appreciating what you have in the moment will likely help decrease your experience of stress. Health benefits abound.

Meditation has made a huge difference for me, Dr. Lynne Kenney . Thank you for sharing this. I hope more people will be inspired to meditate and help free themselves from anxiety and stress.

My mind is always going in 20 different directions. I'm sure the self-discipline of meditation would help tremendously but I don't know how to focus on just one thing at a time!
