It is easy to become discouraged by your circumstances, but you also have the power to change your mindset. When you consciously shift your mindset by repeating a positive statement followed by a positive action that reinforces the statement, and you practice mindfulness. You become present in the moment. According to an article by mental health advocate, Michelle P. Maidenberg, the following statements are examples of how to shift your mindset in a positive direction;
“I’m not a bad person when I act badly; I am a person who has acted badly.
I will seek contentment or satisfaction, rather than happiness because happiness is impossible to ascertain because it’s so broad and ambiguous.
I can be myself without trying to prove myself.”
