Today we’re going to practice an essential skill for life in general, but more specifically, those really tough times.
Like mentioned in the previous blog post, it can be really difficult to look at the positive in trying times. But that is why we have a tool called positive reframing.
Positive reframing takes your current situation, asks you to look at it with an objective viewpoint, and then find the positive amongst the difficult. If you are going through it right now, ask yourself some of the questions below and see if you come out with a new outlook.
- How will this make me stronger?’
- What can I learn from this?
- How can I best show up in this situation to have it align with my values?
- What are the benefits?
I know it’s difficult, and what we really want to do is wrap ourself up in our pity blanket, but if you practice positive reframing on a daily basis, you will literally change the way you brain works! You are actively programming your brain to focus on the positive. And it will get easier the more you practice.
Get positive, and stay witchy ( *)
