MENTAL HEALTH WEEK
During Mental Health Week Australians are urged to look out for their mates and family members who may be struggling, encourage them to seek treatment as well as take a moment to recognise actions to manage mental health.
One of the most frequent activities we should learn to manage is our thoughts.
Thoughts, emotions, intentions, and choices all contribute to our energetic state, and as a result, everything we think and feel has an influence on our everyday life.
A bad thought, word or action creates a poor energetic vibration whereas constructive thoughts produce feelings of happiness, peace and love.
A positive attitude is the most important tool we can possess. When we cultivate habits that contribute to positive mental health our vibration is raised.
Eating well, exercising, getting enough sleep and finding individual strategies to manage stress are very useful tools in coping with mental illness but we can’t always control our environment.
What we can control, or learn to, is our thoughts and how we react to them.
Ways of thinking that contribute to positive thoughts and reactions
- Become aware of negative thoughts when they rise and relabel, reverse or refine
- Focus on the good things that happen throughout your day.
- Practice gratitude by keeping a journal of all the good things that happen to you
- Identify your areas of negativity and judgement
- Laugh at yourself, don’t take your mind so seriously
- Spend time with positive people, eliminate toxic people or at least curb the time spent with them
Positive thoughts enable us to be creative and prepares us to approach life’s challenges in a more productive way.
It may not be easy to begin with, but it is doable. With practice, a more positive you will blossom, and you will attract like-minded high vibration people.

I’ve always been passionate about storytelling and impressed by the influence it has on people and the decisions they make in life. I love engaging with the projects I work on, diving headfirst into the research, investigation, and production of stories and articles I feel are worth writing about.
