Stop Ruminating 🛑


There's a strong connection between the way you think and the way you feel. And it goes both ways. The way you think affects your emotional state and your emotional state affects the way you think.

When you're feeling sad, for example, you look at the world through a gloomy lens. You're more likely to dwell on the negative, engage in harsh self-criticism, and predict things are going to end poorly.

On the flipside, your thoughts also influence how you feel. When you begin thinking about something gloomy--like a person who treated you poorly, you'll start to feel sad.

The more you think about sad things, the worse you feel. And as your mood plummets, the more likely you are to think about sad things. It's a cycle that can be hard to break. You won't talk to people, maybe for few minutes, hours, or even a day or two. You will find it difficult to sleep at night, concentrate on work and would feel drained and sad for anything and everything.

You have to get proactive about changing the channel in your brain so you don't get stuck in a dark place. Instead of ruminating over it, try to think of ways you can solve it. Change the channel of your brain,The best way to do that is to get involved in an activity that distracts you. Find something that requires some serious mental energy for at least a few minutes.

Putting your thoughts into writing can help organize them so they aren’t cluttering your head

A solid social support network is a key tool in overcoming mental and emotional problems. Feeling isolated can cause recurring negative thoughts to surface. Plus, talking to a friend is simply a great way to distract your mind from repetitive thoughts. Just be sure you don’t talk to them about the specific problem causing your rumination.

Not thinking about something is easier said than done. They key is to find a different topic to occupy your mind in place of your repetitive, negative ones. Certain activities that engage your brain require concentration, and prevent you from spending energy thinking about your problem or worry.

Hope grins on the doorway of 2022♥️

The chilly winds on my face, the little mist in the air, red nose, cold hands, mom screaming take care oh, with December, the year comes to an end,  some tears some smiles, and i made one new friend.  The end of this year full of ambiguities is near, bringing the time to reflect what we reared in the whole long year, other than lament and fear. A time to reflect which do's and don'ts crossed our lines & which relations grew fine. What was learnt and what was taught. What was new and what felt like draught,  What engrossed within our hearts & what disappeared fast. What made us grateful & kind, What was love when cherished from distance, What was mirth when tried to express, What was gained and what was lost.  Was all a part of the year just going to pass. Falling again and again with consistency, Then bringing my life into existence, I learned that this world is here to tear you, Are you enough strong to create your own space, Only then, you can embrace,

Do Your Best For People, Not Your Worst✨

We often look at the speck of sawdust in other’s eyes, don't we? But do we really pay attention to the plank in your own eye? Well, not really! Why is it that as humans we often look for flaws in others? We often make quick judgements about someone's behaviour, & It's only later we experience an internal shake when we find out the real story Well, Everyone is fighting some kind of a battle and frankly we don't even have a clue what most people we encounter on a daily basis are going through. Sometimes the inner battles people fight, they just feel lost for a while, People come with all their taunts, they judge all the while, The seconds spent on judging others could be instead spent on loving them❤️ Why is it as humans that we have filled our lives with so much ‘stuff’ to keep us busy that we don’t have time to slow down and simply ask someone if they are ok? While we all go on personal journeys,we also must recognize that everyo

Yes, You are Beautiful ♥️

To those who feel they are not beautiful, Let me start with the brutal truth. Looks do matter. There are millions of people who will always judge you by your appearance. So if you talk about these millions of people, then you are not beautiful, in their eyes. I won't give you this fake hope that your inner beauty will dazzle them, and they will forget about your looks. No., you will never be beautiful for them, So that's the harsh truth. I'll give you an instance from my life, The first time someone commented on me regarding my simple dressing and thick glasses was at my cousin's wedding. And I was okay with it, I thought this is just the way people behave at social events, they comment on other people's dressing, and other people's laughter, someone's face, someone's height, weight, etc. Even if it is at the expense of someone's self worth. And with time, I myself started believing that there must be something wrong with the way I conduc
