The first step to overcoming negative thoughts is to become aware of them. When you notice a negative thought, don't judge yourself or try to push it away.  

Become Aware Of Your Thoughts

Once you've become aware of your thoughts, try to detach from them. Remember, you are not your thoughts. You are the observer of your thoughts.

When you have a negative thought, ask yourself if it's really true. Is there another way to look at the situation? Are you making any assumptions?

When you make a mistake or experience a setback, be kind to yourself. Don't beat yourself up or dwell on the negative. Instead, focus on learning and moving forward. 

Practice Self-Compassion

When you're sleep-deprived, you're more likely to have negative thoughts. Make sure you're getting enough sleep each night to help improve your mood and mental clarity. 

Get Enough Sleep

Exercise is a great way to boost your mood and reduce stress. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise most days of the week.
