"There are moments were life gets us in a bit of a crunch. A series of fallouts, undesired outcomes, pressing problems and things seemingly falling apart in key areas of your life can get you caught in a streak of negative feelings and thoughts. Negative thinking can get you spiraling into a general negative mindset that effectively changes your perception on life and the ability to respond to it.

Yet you do not have to struggle with negative thoughts throughout your life even in the gloomiest of Monday mornings. When we are caught down in the blues alley, we tend to easily forget that there are actions and thoughts that can get us unstuck from the dark clouds of the mind. There are always things you can do to keep all the bad stuff you are bearing with from affecting your life and keeping you from enjoying what you want to get out of it."
