Does Anyone Know How To Stop Compulsive Negative Thoughts That Keep Running In An Endless Loop In Your Brain?

I colour in. They have found that colouring in helps by stopping racing thoughts. Also for me, I find physical hard work makes me tired and im not 'thinking' as much. I used to live in the country on 40 acres with horses, sheep, farm animals & 5 dogs. Id mend ed fences, mowed lawns, feed the animals using a wheelbarrow and after a long day at this I showered and went to bed feeling physically exhausted but my mind was much clearer and the racing thoughts were decreased considerably.

I have to say 3 positives about myself for every negative thought I have. It is hard at first but becomes easier and over tim. You will find yourself laughng at yourself after a while

"I deserve to be loved." That is a powerful antidote. Keep saying that. It's true, even if you don't believe it at the time.

I throw myself into my work, but these days that is not even helping, I find myself thinking more and more about how much i hate myself, and how hideous i must be for no man to be interested in me.
