O Always be in awareness of the present moment. What do you do? What are you eating? How are you feeling? These are some of the questions that you should be asking yourself while you are living in the here and now. Controlling your ideas and becoming conscious of the present moment will let you forego all your baggage of previous choices and thought patterns and reside in the present moment with full energy and vigor.

O Never get frustrated if things do not go the way you intended them to be. If you would like to grow, it is important to understand that there could just be bumps along the road that has to be negotiated. So instead of getting stressed out over things, take time to be grateful that you have all these ideas, that you are alive, that you’re changing and growing – and most importantly, that you’re going places!

O Be a positive thinker. If you want to give up any negative or burdening thoughts, then it would be a excellent idea to start changing your thinking patterns towards positive ones. This does not mean that you have to change all your beliefs and to totally erase all your negative traits and attributes, but you just have to give up the negative ones and also be open to accepting everything you see and experience around you. When you can see and understand what is going on around you can take decent care of yourself, then you will have the ability to successfully handle the situations that come your way.

O Use positive statements and images. Another great way to let go of unwanted and unhelpful ideas is to begin using positive statements and images in your everyday life. By way of example, if you’re telling yourself,”I am kind and loving,” or”I’m laughing my heart out,” or some other statement that connotes happiness and well-being, then it means that you’re letting go of old destructive beliefs. When you can associate these thoughts with joy and well-being, then you will become more likely to experience that happiness in your life. This can also help you build relationships with other people, since when you associate other people with good feelings, then you will become more vulnerable and open to them.

O learn how to breathe deeply and slowly. Breathing slowly and deeply, is a great way to let go of unwanted and dangerous thoughts. In our hectic lives, we often rush through things or say things that do not make us feel great. Therefore, rather than thinking about how you are going to make it through a certain situation, start thinking about how you can breathe deeply and slowly and how you can let go of any negative thoughts that you may have. Using this method, your mind and your body will become relaxed and calm. You’ll be able to experience richer and deeper state of being.

O Take the time for Yourself. 1 terrific way to grow in maturity and wisdom is by making time for yourself. You want to understand that you don’t always need to attend to each and every thing that has happened within your life. Instead, when you find yourself getting bogged down by negative thoughts or by any other unwanted traits, then you want to find a peaceful place and a quiet place where you can recharge yourself by breathing deeply and slowly, and you may consider the things that you want to improve with your mindset and your personality.

By doing such things, it would be easier for you to let go of unwanted and dangerous thoughts. It would also help you to understand that you don’t need to rush through anything or say anything, all at one time. If you wish to help others, then it would also be better if you can help yourself first.
