Train your brain to feel happier and think happy thoughts more often. Here’s a simple thought retraining tool I’ve used – to re-file my thoughts so I can think more positively on a regular basis!
A new thought came to me recently, while I was googling some research on a new project.
When our mind is searching for an “opinion” on how our life is going (aka: awesome vs. awful) we have “favorite first listings” of thoughts and memories which we tend to use to decide how we should think about ourselves and our life.
If we choose to file unhappy thoughts and unhappy memories as our first “thought listings” for what to think about – then we wind up feeling unhappy about ourselves and our lives.
Meanwhile, we have have infinite happy thoughts and happy memories we could have chosen to think about. But these go unnoticed.
Because just like with a Google search, we mainly only consider the first few listings that pop up.
And we ignore the rest of our “thought listings.”
As a result, you tend to believe that your first thought listings (the ones which immediately pop into your mind) are the truest thoughts about your life.
Although specific thoughts and memories might pop up first in your mind, this does not mean these particular “thought listings” accurately represent the full story of your life!
If you wanted, you could right now re-file your thoughts and memories so that happy thought listings pop up first.
As a result, you could improve your mood and perspective.
If you repeatedly practice thinking your Positive Evidence Listings, you’ll naturally start to retrieve these happy thoughts and happy memories first and foremost.
As a result, you will walk around feeling happier on a daily basis.
