Time has a way of getting away from us if we aren't too careful. It's already Fall of 2019 & STRESS begins to pile on as the last quarter of the year seems to bring on the hustle and bustle along with extreme chaos added to our schedules.
The way we think determines the quality of our life whether it’s sad, happy, and contented. Happy, optimistic, positive thoughts, emotions, and feelings generate a zing in our system which makes the blood flow freely and heartbeat joyously. They create a spring in our feet and spur us to action.Our actions are the practical manifestations of our thoughts.
It is quite clear, therefore, that we must biohack our thoughts in the way we think in order to create happiness and sense of fulfillment in our life. Why is the message of “Biohacking“ our thoughts so important NOW?
A great thing about our brain is that it willingly adopts any changes that we bring about in our thinking patterns.
WAYS TO BIOHACK YOUR THOUGHTS
Change Your Thoughts With “Positive“ Affirmations
Affirmations are not always positive. They can be negative as well. The hexes created by the witches are negative affirmations. The real truth is that most people are given to making negative affirmations. When you constantly think that you are not going to succeed in something, it is a negative affirmation.
Affirmations, both negative and positive impact on the neurological functioning of the brain. Positive affirmations have a sacred and spiritual force about them. Let’s be clear about creating positive affirmations. They shouldn’t be normative or weak. Thoughts like I ‘should’, ‘ought to’ or ‘abstain from’ are normative.
Now to biohack your mind to think in a positive way you need to be constantly saying positive things daily. A simple way of starting is by simply waking up and saying today will be a great day.
Change Your Thoughts By Counting Your Blessings
More people take their joys and blessings for granted and start grumbling about what they do not have; or, when they are faced with problems and troubles. You just need to think of those who are less fortunate than you. Or, think of certain situations that could’ve been worse than it is now.
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It will turn your denial into acceptance, chaos to order, and confusion to clarity.
Allow Yourself To Let Go & Be Playful
Kids are known for the innocence and simplicity of the mind. They soon forget their quarrels with their friends and start playing together once again. This is one reason that generally they are always happy and smiling. Translated into the language of the adults, we should biohack our minds to forget and forgive.
“Forgive and Forget, but never forget to forgive. You may find a happier heart is the key to a happier life.”–Mahatma Ghandi
Seek Happiness In The Present
You will not want to associate happiness with future events. Like, I will be happy when things happen this way. This is like postponing your happiness to an unsure future. Try biohacking your thoughts to try to postpone your sorrow to some future moment as much as you can. The time to be happy is now because yesterday has already passed and you cannot be sure that tomorrow will bring any happiness.
BIOHACKING YOUR THOUGHTS
Based on recent decades of neuroscience findings, it appears, to the extent that you become a conscious participant in these processes, you are more effectively direct the changes and parts of you involved in change. In other words, your success in changing any interfering behavior or thought patterns depends on…a conscious you.
