If you're a glass half-empty kinda girl, then the good news is that you can take positive steps to banish negative thoughts!

Whether you love to moan about the weather, think that your problems are the worst or simply hate your job, there are ways to be more positive, and these steps to banish negative thoughts will help you to be less doom and gloom, more Little Miss Sunshine!

1. Start a Gratitude Journal

This is one of my favorite steps to banish negative thoughts.

You can download gratitude journal apps for your smartphone and write about the things you're grateful for each day - even just spending a few minutes each morning thinking about all the good things in your life will help to banish negativity!

2. Think Positive

I know, easier said than done, but you can use all kinds of tricks to help you think more positively.

Leave yourself positive affirmation post-it notes, or simply be more aware of your negative thoughts, replacing them instantly with positive ones.

Look after yourself and treat yourself as you would a friend - if you feel down, tell yourself how great you are and how everything will be okay!

3. Wear Bright Colors

Color can have a huge impact on our moods - did you know that wearing green can help you to feel healthier and more energised, whilst yellow is associated with freedom and positivity?2

Wearing a color related to happiness and positivity, such as orange or yellow, can instantly lift your mood and help to banish negative thoughts.

4. Be More Self Aware

Awareness of your negative thoughts is the first step to banishing them.

Some people attend counselling or hypnotherapy to help them work through the reasons behind their negativity, but you can practice self-awareness at home.

When you feel negative thoughts coming, get busy;

read a book, take a long hot bath or tidy your flat - banish that negativity!
