I was told recently from a patient that she had difficulty finding something postive to think about. If we can shift our perspective to look past the negative in flow of information and follow what seems to give our bodies a sense of well being, we can help negate the negative influences that pull us down. Try and search for the feelings that lifted us up. Listen to music that was a part of you when you had optimism about the future. Take a walk and look for something that interests you. It is amazing how this influences a basic organic connection in the brain, neuroplasticity, and find a way to work it to your benefit.
