So you want to feel better fast? I do too.
Learning how changed my life.
It made uncorking a bottle of wine less necessary. Finding a snack less tempting. Mindlessly scrolling through Facebook and Instagram way less appealing.
So, what is the key?
Radically reducing the thought drama in your life will help you say no to emotions and activities that do not serve you!!!
Trying to satisfy the urge to over eat, over drink, over shop, over scroll, is always (and I mean always) about trying to change how you feel, and how you feel is coming from a thought…thought drama!
That doesn’t mean you’re always drinking, eating, shopping or scrolling because you’re feeling a negative emotion. It just means that saying YES to any urge is your brain’s sneaky way of avoiding them.
So, then how can you feel better fast?
It’s simple…but not easy.
- We have to watch where we are bringing our own discomfort and thought drama into our lives.
- Practice reframing your drama thoughts to neutral thoughts.
Notice the words that I highlighted…we and your.
I know you think that it is something someone said or did that made you feel a negative emotion but remember, your emotions are triggered by your thoughts, not by someone’s actions. The circumstance is neutral. Until we interpret the circumstance and have a thought about it, it’s neutral.
Below are some examples of drama thoughts that we create on our own, every day, that create drama emotions.
- Drama Thought = I’m so late!
- Neutral Thought = It’s 9:00
- Drama Thought = I have a million things to do today
Neutral Thought = I have 5 things on my to-do list.
- Drama thought = I am exhausted
- Neutral thought = I got so much done today
- Drama thought = This crap always happens to me
Neutral thought = I can do hard things
Reframing your thoughts in a neutral manner will start to drain the drama out of your dramatic thinking.
I know… it seems like too small of a change to make a difference, but trust me it’s everything.
The more you teach your brain to find the neutral stance, the more you’ll notice yourself feeling calmer and centered.
When it comes to feeling better, you’ll be surprised at how effective these small changes can be. And when you know how to make yourself feel better without grabbing a drink, or chips, or hitting the purchase button, your habits will start to have less of a hold over you.
So, give it a try. I know you’ll see a difference. Click here to watch the Transformation Tuesday Replay.
