    • Positive Thinking:Practice this stress management skill
    •  Positive thinking helps with stress management and can even improve your health. Overcome negative self-talk by recognizing it and practicing with some examples provided Positive thinking enhances focus on your job and can help to reduce the chance of accidents
    • Understanding positive thinking and self- talk Self-talk is the endless stream of thoughts that run through your head every day. These automatic thoughts can be positive or negative. Some of your self-talk comes from logic and reason. Other self-talk may arise from misconceptions that you create because of lack of information. If the thoughts that run through your head are mostly negative, your outlook on life is likely pessimistic. If your thoughts are mostly positive, youre likely an optimist — someone who practices positive thinking.
    • How positive thinking gives way to negative thinking But what if your self-talk is mainly negative? That doesnt mean youre doomed to an unhappy life. Negative self- talk just means that your own misperceptions, lack of information and distorted ideas have overpowered your capacity for logic and reason.
    • Some common forms of negative and irrational self-talk include Filtering. You magnify the negative aspects of a situation and filter out all of the positive ones Personalizing. When something bad occurs, you automatically blame yourself. Catastrophizing. You automatically anticipate the worst. Polarizing. You see things only as either good or bad, black or white.
    • You can learn positive thinking Instead of giving in to these kinds of negative self-talk, weed out misconceptions and irrational thinking and then challenge them with rational, positive thoughts. When you do this, your self-talk will gradually become realistic and self- affirming — you engage in positive thinking.
    •  Periodically during the day, stop and evaluate what youre thinking. If you find that your thoughts are mainly negative, try to find a way to put a positive spin on them. Dont say anything to yourself that you wouldnt say to anyone else.
