All of us experience a blue day or an out-of-sort day once in a while. An effective technique that a good friend shared with me a while ago is what I wanna share with you. 

 

Today's bite-size tip is to pull out the wallpaper of your favourite place whenever you are feeling down. This can be a real place that you have been to, a picture that you have seen or an imaginary place.

 

Oftentimes when we are feeling negative, our thoughts tend to be heading in that direction as well. It is not easy to counter thoughts with thoughts even though you may find success at times.

 

It is more effective to alter the medium. Instead of thinking, switch to something visual or audio to interrupt your negative thoughts or feelings.

 

Just last week, my husband and I were in Hawaii enjoying the relaxing and laidback vibes of the gorgeous place. Just looking at our pictures and recalling the memories of our experiences help to distract myself from my own negative emotions.

 

Try this tip and see if it works for you.
