7 Days To Stop Negative Thinking

If there is one thing that can prevent us from becoming an actor, it is our mind. Our negative thoughts can block us and make us see life in black. How to get rid of those thoughts that prevent us from moving forward and that we have been dragging on for years?

Here is an exercise that will allow you to reprogram your brain to finally focus on what you want. I discovered this exercise 3 weeks ago, and it is effective.
Here’s how it works:

1. The first step to stop negative thinking is to identify the thoughts that you need to change. For example, perhaps you often catch your inner voice telling you « I never have castings ».

2. Now that you have identified negative thinking, you must write an affirmation that is directly opposite. For example :

« I now have 5 professional castings a week ».

Note that it is a positive affirmation that is written in the present tense.

This technique is called in English Seventy-By-Seven, Seventy-Seven, because the next step is to write this affirmation positive 7O times a day for 7 days in a row. I know, that’s a lot but that’s also why it’s effective.

If you arrive at day 3 and you forget to do it on day 4, you will have to return to day 1.

There is a precise way to write this statement to make sure it is effective.

Whenever you write your positive affirmation, you must write your immediate mental response and move on to the next statement. If you do not have a mental answer, just write « no answer ».

It’s time to be honest with yourself and really identify what’s blocking you.

Here’s an example of what it could do with the previous example:

DAY 1

(1) I now have 5 castings a week – No, I never have, this technique is nil.

(2) I now have 5 castings a week – Without an agent, it’s impossible.

(3) I now have 5 castings a week – if only it were possible.

(4) I now have 5 castings a week – I do not even know when I’ll have time to pass them.

…….

(70) I now have 5 castings a week – I will do everything to make it happen.

The key to this technique is to always be focused on positive affirmation. At first, we tend to get distracted easily and think of something else. we must make some effort to bring our thoughts back to the affirmation we are writing. When you start, you will probably feel that you are wasting your time, and your negative mind will tend to judge the technique.

But little by little, as you continue, your negative spirit will begin to weaken. You will also discover other negative thoughts that block you deeper and that you may not have identified.

This technique is effective because it allows you to focus on what you want and stop negative thinking.

And as we become what we think most often, your positive affirmation becomes more and more true. At the same time, it allows you to be honest with yourself and express what you really think.

Try and you will see the results!

8 ways to improve your productivity

Everyone has already experienced those moments when we are so focused and absorbed in what we are doing that no distraction can get us out of it.

This can be by studying a discipline that fascinates us, or by doing manual work, playing music, playing sports, etc …

There are moments like that in life, moments when our attention is fully invested in a single activity. And this investment usually brings a feeling of well-being and fulfillment.

On the contrary, there are also times when the focus seems almost impossible, where the first notification comes to take us to a site without interest to lose precious minutes.

In our daily life, the distractions are numerous and often insinuate by our tools of work.

Our computer, our phone are sources of permanent distractions. Escaping dozens of notifications that insist on our attention is sometimes part of the mental warrior’s journey.

If disciplines such as full-consciousness, self-hypnosis or yoga are so popular today, it is also because they are particularly necessary to offer us a bubble of concentration where to reload our attentional capacity put to hard test.

In areas that require a high level of performance, the ability to focus on a single activity is critical.

At a very high level of performance, it is often the factor that makes the difference.

Great athletes often have a more or less equal technical level. And it’s their level of concentration in a tournament that often determines their success.

For an operating surgeon, the ability to avoid distractions and focus on the task at hand is obviously vital. It is hard to imagine a surgeon putting his tools to look at his latest facebook notification on his phone.

Whatever your job or activity, you will gain in efficiency and satisfaction by increasing your concentration.

The distractions that assail us on a daily basis are therefore not only counterproductive, but also a source of dissatisfaction.

So how to avoid falling into their trap? How to improve your productivity ?

1. Your personal experience

First, before you drink tips from reading or research, I’d like to encourage you to look into your personal experience.

What are the times when you have the most experience of your peak concentration?

Those moments when your attention was entirely focused on one thing, you had like blinkers preventing you from seeing or hearing the outside distractions, your thoughts were totally absorbed by what you were doing, the feeling of time passing was different, the time seemed to you slower, or on the contrary faster than usual, you were inspired, with the feeling of knowing exactly what your next action was, and at the same time totally in the present moment …

You will notice that you can do this experiment in different conditions.

This can happen when you have an important conversation with someone you love, or when you are inspired by a creative activity, etc.

What causes this in you?

Also ask yourself what causes the opposite.

In times when you can not concentrate, what’s stopping you? Does something else seem more important to you and captivate your attention? Is it because your current task seems irrelevant? Is it fatigue?

2. The principle of inertia.

Do you know the principle of inertia in physics? It is a law that says that every body has a tendency to maintain its speed in the absence of external factors.

So an immovable object will remain motionless unless a force is applied to it. If you want a piece of furniture to move, you have to push it.

On the other hand, once in motion, the object still tends to maintain its speed. It therefore requires less force to keep moving forward.

In fact, if it is necessary to put force once the object is launched, it is because an opposite force applies: it is the resistance. The furniture rubs on the floor.

Why remember your physics classes in this article on distraction and procrastination?

Because the same principles apply equally in your work or any other activity.

It is more difficult to start a task than to continue it under the principle of inertia.

In any activity, you will encounter a form of resistance that will seek to prevent you from performing your task. This resistance will take various forms and will always aim to make you abandon your task for another one requiring less effort.

You stop pushing the furniture to blow on a dust.

When you have a task to do, start by putting yourself in it. If you have to write a text, start writing (even if it’s bad) to give a positive inertia to your task.

Give yourself the goal of putting yourself in for 5 minutes, and get to work. You will often see that after the first 5 minutes, the job will seem much easier.

3. Fight resistance, eliminate distractions.

In physics, resistance to movement is often due to friction.

Try to push a piece of furniture on waxed parquet or on the contrary on a stony path, and you will quickly understand what rubbing is!

In your work, resistance will often take the form of distractions. These distractions will be able to be tasks that look like work (ex: to answer a colleague by email), or tasks that are not at all (ex: to watch cute cats on Youtube).

The best way to combat these distractions is to ignore them.

The best way to ignore them is to be unaware of their existence.

So, put your phone in silence and put it at the other end of the room. Close all tabs on your browser that are not relevant to your current task. Disconnect from social networks, etc …

Organize your workspace to avoid distractions.

Remove post-it notes or notes from your desk that do not pertain to your current work.

Lock yourself up or put on headphones (with appropriate music or white noise) to stop hearing noises and outside conversations.

Interruptions in your work take you a lot of energy every time. Again, this is the principle of inertia: you need energy to stop the current task, start another task, stop it, and restart your previous task.

It’s wasted energy.

4. Spend less time on your work.

Parkinson’s law states that any work within an administration increases until it completely occupies the time allotted to it.

This is also called the law of gases applied to work.

When a gas is put in a container, it occupies all the space allocated to it. If you put oxygen in a small 50cl bottle or put the same amount of oxygen in a 5l bottle, the gas will expand to fill the space.

So there will be oxygen everywhere and no empty space.

Applied to work, this law states that if you allocate 12 hours to complete a task, you will spend at least 12 hours.

If the work can be done in 2 hours, you will spend the other 10 hours to procrastinate, to complicate your task, to perfectionism to completely fill the time you have allocated.

If you only give yourself 1:30 to do the same job, you will have no choice but to work effectively to complete your task 30 minutes late. You will avoid losing 10 hours in unnecessary tasks.

 

5. Do not give yourself the choice.

To write his masterpieces, Victor Hugo had a very particular method. He locked himself naked in his office and asked his servant to return her clothes at the end of the day.

He had no choice but to focus on his work or do nothing at all.

You are certainly not going to do the same thing, but you can find your own way of forcing yourself to work.

Self Discipline is key to any succes !

 

6. Give importance to what you do.

Have you ever noticed that things that seem important to you tend to obsess you naturally?

If you know why it is important to complete your task, you will have a much easier time completing it.

That’s why, to the extent possible, you must mentally tie your task to your personal goals.

If you can find pleasure in what you do, then nothing will stop you from doing it.

But if the task itself does not bring you pleasure, you can tie it to a nice reward.

You motivate yourself to finish your task quickly so that you can then do something you like.

When you work for someone else, your efficiency will allow you to ask for an increase or a more interesting job, or to be more relaxed and enjoy your free time.

Whatever your task, give it the maximum importance. Or eliminate it totally.

7. Reload your attention regularly.

Your attention is like a muscle. By working your attention you will strengthen it. The more you learn to concentrate, the easier it becomes.

But as a muscle, your attention also needs rest. Otherwise it is exhaustion.

Some activities allow you to recharge your attention quickly so you can return to your work with efficiency.

A walk in kind for example requires little attention, and allows you to recharge quickly. You let your eyes wander, you get distracted by your surroundings so that when you get back to work, you can focus easily again.

Sometimes it is not possible to walk in nature in the middle of a working day. This is often the case.

Listening to music with your eyes closed can then allow you to escape for a moment.

Or move and stretch your body as well. Playing with an animal, etc.

See what activities actually allow you to recharge and which are just lures …

8. Hygiene of life: sleep and nutrition

Sleep has a primary influence on concentration. On average, French people would sleep 1.5 hours less than 50 years ago, and 45% of 25- to 45-year-olds think they sleep less than they need. In teens, insufficient sleep is correlated with a smaller volume of gray matter. (Https://www.inserm.fr/information-en-sante/dossiers-information/sommeil)

Sleeping better allows you to be more focused in your work and to avoid distractions more easily.

In addition, lack of sleep causes a disturbance in the perception of hunger. If you tend to interrupt your work regularly to get something to nibble on, it may be that you lack sleep.

Nibbling is a vicious circle that negates your ability to focus. The rapid intake of sugars in the blood leads to a peak blood sugar (blood sugar) which is followed by a peak of insulin (the hormone responsible for reducing blood sugar).

As a result, your blood sugar level drops to a lower level than it was before you nibbled. So you end up a few minutes after nibbling with a feeling of fatigue and a lack of energy due to the lowering of your sugar level.

This vicious circle is particularly harmful for your concentration because it is difficult to concentrate when you have too much blood sugar, and also when you do not have enough.

To remedy this, avoid eating fast sugars and choose healthy meals taken at regular intervals.

Sleeping well and eating well can completely change the way you work and your productivity.

7 habits that stop you from having a good night sleep

« The night is made to sleep » sings a famous rapper. He could have added: to sleep well preferably. For Morpheus tends to put too many rabbits at a population of insomniacs who constantly hunt better sleep.

« As one makes one’s bed one goes to bed, » says the proverb. But the state of the bedding is not always responsible for the absence of a lead sleep.

And if avoiding some exciting before going to bed already solved part of the problem and provided better sleep?

Attempt to resolve a conflict

An argument, especially with his half, is usually synonymous with restless night. The grudges, tensions and reproaches that turn in a loop in the head guarantee you a sleepless night or highly fragmented.

To broach the words exchanged in anger, or on the contrary to imagine those which you should have said, is the best way of not getting to sleep well.

Absolutely wanting to resolve a conflict at a time when your bed calls you, is the least effective sleeping pills.

Let go, put your annoyances on pause: the night brings advice and tomorrow is another day. You will have the opportunity to calmly discuss and set your record straight. This will save you from counting hours without turning a blind eye.

Once tensions are relieved after having managed to sleep well, it will be an opportunity to eventually make peace on the pillow.

Abuse nap

A nap yes, a second night no!

It is undeniable that a nap done in the middle of the day, after lunch, is a source of benefits. It is a physiological need and the possibility for many to recharge their batteries. The vivacity of the spirit is impregnated, the memory is dulled, the stress is evacuated and the cardiovascular system put back into protection mode.

Take advantage of this time of rest if the conditions allow you, but do not overdo it, on pain of annoying a better sleep once the sandman passed.

  • The nap must be done before 14:30.
  • It should not last more than 30 minutes.
  • Sleep must not be deep, otherwise the night capital will be damaged.

Even in case of sleep debt to be filled, do not exceed 90 minutes. To sleep well during the night, the sleep pressure must be strong enough at bedtime. To continue the nap beyond the recommended limit will have the consequence of destroying the quality of your night with frequent awakenings.

Try this Instant Nap instead !

Sports at night

After 8 pm, this good habit is transformed into an enemy of sleep. If you want to put on your side every chance to enjoy a better sleep, skip your gym, running or cycling 3 hours before bedtime.

The evening is for many the ideal time to play sports. Yet performed at a late hour, it contributes to disrupt the rhythm of sleep: the secreted endorphins act as a self-timer and the body, stimulated, gives the starter. It will take a good time to find a relaxation conducive to falling asleep.

Playing sports in the early evening is therefore incompatible with diving into the land of dreams and sleeping well.
Opt for the morning or afternoon whenever possible, to indulge in this kind of activity.

Drink a last drink

If alcohol is to drink in moderation, it is downright forbidden before going to bed.

Too much alcohol consumed in the course of the evening may encourage a drowsy sleepiness and allow you to fall asleep just as a mass in bed, but a sleep of lead will not be at the rendezvous.

Alcohol, responsible for many awakenings and a decrease in deep sleep, impacts the cycle of the latter. Your rest will be less restorative, interspersed with successive phases of awakening.

This session will help you manage your drinking habit if needed : Moderate Drinking

Also avoid tea or coffee, other energy drinks not to say exciting. To sleep well, prefer a cup of hot milk or herbal tea: they will generate a better sleep.

Invite your screen in your bed

It is already invading your days, do not let it prevent you from sleeping well. If you want a better sleep, be aware that the light from the screen of your smartphone or computer is an enemy of size. The pupil is excited and the brain is amazed by the brightness of these devices that stimulates and misleads them: « everyone on the bridge, it’s time to wake up! »

In addition, by keeping the screens a few centimeters from the eyes, melatonin, the sleep hormone, sees its production decrease in intensity. The unwanted awakenings during the night will only be more favored.

If the toxicity to the body of the blue light is regularly questioned, one thing is certain: it does not contribute to a better sleep.

Exit therefore this annoying mania to consult your mails or to surf on the social networks at bed time.

It may be good to take a Digital Detox !

Take a good book or take care of your spouse : there is evidence that engaging in some sexual entertainment before closing your eyes helps to sleep well.

Note: It is imperative to sleep in total darkness to enjoy a better sleep. It is the absence of light that allows the optimized secretion of melatonin, the essential hormone for sleeping well.

Eat more than reason

« Sleeping has dinner », it is still necessary that the stomach does not cry hunger when going to bed, because an empty stomach has never facilitated a restful rest.

Conversely, a belly too full also prevents good sleep: difficult digestion and nightmares may disturb the night, moving your rest.

If it happens that in the evening, on the occasion of a restaurant outing or an invitation, you let yourself go to some excesses, the best is to wait 2 hours after the end of the meal to sleep.

Attention also to the quality of the meal ingested: fatty, fried or spicy, the food will be responsible for an additional effort asked to the digestive tract in particular and to the organism in general. The intense thirst that may ensue will cause many awakenings to drink and therefore to urinate.

Better to eat healthy and in small quantities at night.

 

Sleeping in overheated atmosphere

The temperature of the resting place also plays a decisive role in generating a better sleep.

Sleeping well when the room is too heated is the realm of dreams. The body has a horror of that, and your brain, always alert even at the darkest hours of the night, will be happy to wake you up with fanfare.

Sweaty body and dry throat, you will emerge from an uncomfortable lethargy. Better to play Sleeping Beauty in a temperature between 18 and 20 degrees. It is also better for your skin which will avoid dehydration too important. When you wake up, your Prince Charming will find you always so fresh and eternally desirable.

Do not hesitate to leave your window ajar all year round: the cold keeps. While warm under the duvet, you will enjoy a better sleep.

One last tip to make your sleep the best: avoid as much as possible taking sleeping pills that turns quickly addictive.
