How To Take Control Of Your Thoughts-It's Really Possible

Many people in today’s world are probably unaware that they can genuinely manage their ideas and the emotions that come with them. Personal development and the cognitive process, on the other hand, are becoming increasingly popular topics every day. This is due to all the information that is being pushed out into our minds and emotions. Within the personal development industry, there is a high demand for it.

How To Take Control Of Your Thoughts-It's Really Possible

Before we can go into more depth about thoughts and how they work, we must first understand what they are. We must first recognize that there are a few misconceptions about mind control. Many individuals believe that your ideas govern you and that if you have an uncontrollable thought, it means you have an underlying illness. This, however, is not the case. It is essential to have the correct understanding of what creates uncontrollable thoughts and how to control them. Not just to illustrate the thought process, but also to demonstrate how you may have a happier life by controlling your ideas and the emotions that go along with them. This gives life a lot of hope.

The Content Beyond Thought Control

I believe there is a lot of stuff needed to think about articulating what it is and why it is significant. This is so that we can be happy and live the lives that we like. We must first acquire the necessary topic understanding when it comes to our entire existence.

Thoughts is a random thought that causes us to think. It is a conscious cognitive process. When you can do this (control your thinking), your mental abilities become more aware, causing you to feel happier and more aware of the unexpected in all aspects of life. Positive thinking puts you in a good mood, which makes you happier. Without going into too much detail, this has resulted in the belief that we can control our lives and the outcomes of everything that happens to us.

Neurotransmitters are chemicals or messages that neurons release when they receive an electric current, causing them to send even more messages. The brain is a very intelligent part of the body, and when these neurons receive these electric currents, thoughts are carried from the neurons to the conscious mind. This leads to a thought.

Thoughts also include data that is flowing through the mind. Because of these thoughts, we are compelled to act and live our lives. So, whether it’s a positive or negative thought, anything is possible when we stop and pay attention to what we’re thinking.

As a result, thinking can be defined as the way one lives to live a happy life with oneself and others. You are less likely to suffer from any form of mental illness if you are conscious of your thoughts. This is because, when negative thoughts arise, you take control and modify your thinking. It all comes down to being alert.


The Thought Method- Thinking into Action

Thinking and acting on how thoughts work and affect our daily lives from within, is a simple underlying method that will help those with negative thoughts to change in a way that is more optimistic like with more powerful results in life.

Taking Control of your thoughts equals living a life with many possibilities and of success.

If you work hard to change and maintain a positive outlook that comes with such steps, as well as look within to see what exactly needs to be done to achieve such success, your life and how you think will begin to change who you are and how your life will turn out. (I promise you, things will start to change.)

To begin, how often do you find yourself having uncontrollable negative thoughts throughout the day? This is known as Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, or OCD for short, and it can be caused by genetics, relationship issues, the loss of a loved one, and a variety of other factors. Positive and thought control can be achieved by rewiring the brain and acting in your life. Shifting your focus is one way to accomplish this.

OCD affects numerous people all over the world. One in every four. When a person suffers from this mental illness, a lot of things can appear to go wrong in their life. However, once one learns to act, anything is truly possible. To be successful in life, I shift my focus whenever a negative thought arises. This is a list of first-time action steps for those who are having difficulty with thought control.

It All Adds Up To Taking Care of Your Mental Health.

When it came to being able to control my thoughts, I tried a variety of methods before becoming aware and taking action. I tried connecting my mind and body, living in the moment, meditation (which I still do), shifting my focus, deep breathing, and yoga.

When I first embarked on my journey of personal development and positive thinking. I’d realized that before I could live a life of positive thinking, I needed to figure out what was causing my misery and suffering. These are “roadblocks” in life that we develop from birth and affect our way of life. Depending on the roadblock and what is required to become more positive, it can take anywhere from a few weeks to years. It all comes down to consistency.

Regardless of what you’ve been through, you’re prone to allowing your thoughts and behaviors to control you rather than the other way around. If you don’t understand what thoughts are, where they come from, and how to change them, your life will never change. This includes taking risks and attempting new things even if you are aware of the possibility of failure. Unfortunately, this can trap you in a never-ending cycle of trying and failing until a change occurs. It simply means to take action.

Finally, it comes down to taking action and believing that you can have a more positive mindset, as well as changing your negative thoughts to positive ones when they arise. However, I am not saying that you cannot have negative thoughts (that is not possible), but rather that you must be aware of them and find a way to change them when they occur.

The Recognition That Your Thoughts Are Connected to Your Emotions

You should be aware that when you have a thought, it produces emotions. This is because your emotions are triggered by your thoughts. In real life, this can cause even more stress than you previously imagined. It is critical to understand this to improve your mental health.

Many people believe that their thoughts are influenced by their emotions. As a result, they can have certain thoughts but no emotions attached to them. This could not be further from the truth.

However, believing that your emotions can control your thoughts (which they can in certain situations) makes you tense. This is because of certain events that have occurred, and we tend to become emotional over something that isn’t even there yet. For example, you may begin to cry for no apparent reason. This is caused by your body’s exhaustion. So, by allowing your thoughts to control your emotions, you are putting your mental health at risk. This is not the place for you.

So, while it may appear that believing your emotions control your thoughts is a good idea, it is not a wise belief to hold if you want to change your thinking, especially if you want to be more positive and happy in life.

It is best to simply take control of your thoughts to keep your emotions in check, especially if they make you want to be a better person.

Recipe for Taking Charge of Your Thoughts

To be able to change your thoughts, you must first devise a successful strategy. It can be dangerous to constantly think negative thoughts because you don’t know how to change them. To assist in having a more happy life I’ve devised a method for taking control of your thoughts and being happy. I believe they can work for you if they have worked for me.

1. Connect The Mind and Body- To be able to control your thoughts, you must first recognize that you have control. This means that you have control over what you say, think, and do. When you’re able to do that, the life transformation can begin.

2. Live In the Moment- We have this desire in life to always think about the future and what might happen. Instead, live in the present moment and enjoy the journey. This allows you to become more self-aware of who you are and what kind of person you are met to be.

3. MeditationWe get so stressed out in life, with so much going on in our heads, that we forget to relax. This can cause all of our thoughts to become hardwired and scattered. Rather than becoming stressed and emotional, why not try meditation? Meditation causes you to enter a deep relaxation state in which you are calm and relaxed. This is because when you relax deeply, your thoughts become hazy, implying that they are not present. Meditation, on the other hand, is a lengthy process that takes time to master. So please be patient.

Here’s a great meditation that will help you relax and calm the mind

“Meditation means connecting with our inner being.”

4. Changing Your Focus- Everything that crosses our minds can be either negative or positive, and both will elicit emotions in us. When you can recognize your thoughts and what is causing them, you will be able to change that thoughts into something more positive much faster. Just remember that those negative thoughts are a part of your life and shape who you are, and everything will become more positive. One approach is to express gratitude and love to those around you.

5. Deep Breathing- Deep breathing entails taking several slow and deep breaths. This requires you to enter a deep state of relaxation and then focus on your breathing. This causes your mind to slow down and become more peaceful rather than scattered. Yoga is a great example of when you practice deep breathing.

6. Get A Massage- A massage, like meditation, can help relax the body and the mind. This is because it puts you in a state of deep relaxation. That’s why so many people doze off during a massage. It’s just that tranquil.

Keep in mind that you are a human being, and no one is perfect. You can work on yourself after you know how to control your thoughts.

    Once we are aware we are in control of our mental health, it empowers us to pay attention to our reactions. THere is so much exploration needed in this area that we can spend our whole life discovering new stuff. Now, when it comes to realizing we are responsible for our emotions, most never get to this realization.

  2. Jannette says:

    This was a great read about how to control our thoughts, and I agree with you there are lots of information that is being pushed to everyone. We need to understand each topic clearly before addressing the topic. I try to think positively about all situations that come my way. I am going to share this with my friends and family for them to enjoy reading as well.

    Controlling your thoughts is a process that can take years to learn and apply effectively. There are several thoughts on what the best method is. I, personally, have found that before I go to bed at night if I take 20 or 30 minutes to read scripture or listen to a positive, affirming tape then I am more relaxed and ready for a good night’s sleep. I awaken refreshed and ready for the day. I take my first minutes of the day to be thankful and grateful for the day. I have found that my day is much more pleasant.

    The negative thoughts that were a part of my day, ALL DAY, have vanished and my day is positive and creative. Before it was ugly and destructive. We can change our thoughts by changing what we concentrate on. If you have negative energy surrounding you then you need to find a way to replace it with energy that is more positive and soothing to your mind.

      I couldn’t agree more. It took me a long time to understand the concept. I really like that idea. I actually use an affirmation app that goes off every hour to reaffirm myself of my thinking. It’s called the I am app. I highly recommend using it for sure. 

      I love that. It’s very true when you concentrate on negative then you get more negative. All one has to do is change it.

    Hi Kiersti,

    Thanks for your inspiring post! It is so helpful to realize that thoughts lead to certain emotions and therefore we need to be in control of our thoughts. Meditation, being present, and being mindful of your thoughts are my go-to methods. Deep breathing and getting a massage are great suggestions that I can apply.

    Thanks again,


    • Kiersti says:

      You’re so welcome. I love your ideas on how to control thoughts. I love meditation and just letting go. They are very helpful and do much for the soul. Thanks so much for reading.

    I needed to read this right now! I suffer from a lot of negative thinking and have been working to change that for a while now. It’s still a struggle, but I am learning that I have more power over it than I ever realized before. On another note, have you heard of “toxic positivity?” It’s the idea that being too positive and always acting like nothing is ever wrong can become toxic to your life. I recently heard about that, but I’m not really sure if I agree or not. Thinking about it!
