How to Deal with Obsessive Thoughts

Every day, our minds are filled with many thoughts. Some of these – unfortunatel – recur too many times, and can become obsessive.

For most people, these types of thoughts are normally negative and cause some level of disturbance in our minds.

At its extreme, this can result in paranoia or just less productivity.

Luckily, dealing with these thoughts can be as easy as training your mind how to function instead of taking huge doses of drugs.

Here are some of the tips on how to deal with obsessive thoughts.

Convert the negative energy into positive energy

Don’t let your thoughts destroy you but instead let them prod you to actually perform a good deed.

For example, your mind could be convincing you how much you are not good enough to take a particular job or a promotion at work.

Instead of sulking and complaining the whole day, take this as a wake-up call to boost your skills and confidence levels.

This way, you will channel all the negative energy used to complain into positive energy in self-improvement and empowerment.

Seek validation

As humans, we are sometimes too hard on ourselves especially when we compare ourselves to our peers.

Surprisingly, you will find that the person you feel inferior to often actually admires you.

Take time to talk with your true friends. They are better-placed at telling you the truth about yourself.

Additionally, it is important and prudent to take their criticism positively.

Do not try to stop it

Research indicates that trying hard to forget something actually triggers the brain to remember it.

This is why it is extremely hard to get rid of an obsessive thought by forcing yourself to forget it.

Doctors advise that you should ignore the thoughts as much as possible and pay very little attention to them. Distract yourself if necessary or even the simple act of wearing a rubber band round your wrist and “twanging” it when you think an obsessive thought can be a good way to reduce the issue.

To sum it up, extreme levels of obsessive thoughts are dangerous.

People have destroyed relationships and experienced limited social lives due to lack of proper ways to relieve this condition.
