I have often caught myself replaying a catchy tune in my head over and over again. I also noticed that I occasionally catch myself thinking negative thoughts. Both of these are habits. One is not so problematic, but the other can actually cause harm. I’ll leave it to you to decide which is which. So, I decided to make up positive words and thoughts to go along with the catchy tunes in my head. Whenever I catch myself thinking negatively, I work hard at remembering, ‘It’s no big deal, just let it go.’ It’s not always easy, but the tunes help. A friend of mine taught me an equally great method. She suggested that whenever the negative thoughts creep in, picture them being spoken with Donald Duck’s voice. This really weakens their effect. Do you have any techniques for breaking negative routines that you’d like to share?
