In order to move out of negative thinking, something is required. That thing must be what negative thinking isn’t. It can either be positive thinking or just simply not thinking. Focusing on the breath and the body aka meditation is a wonderful way of moving out of our circular thinking and calming down the mind.
Another way is to act. Any action no matter how great or small, geared towards progress is more beneficial than no action at all.
Here is one action, this creation http://insig.ht/gm_102063 which is my first published meditation. It’s on insight timer. The action for me was deciding to load it up there. You can download it from the shop in this site to have permanently or you can listen to the application and meditate there.
I am creating and recording other meditations and one for gratitude will come soon.
