How to stop Waste Thoughts ?

Having no control on mind can create a lot of problems in life. One of such issue is uncontrolled speed of waste thoughts. You need to take necessary measures in order to limit the speed of waste thoughts.

WHY TO STOP WASTE THOUGHTS

Before starting, you must understand that why actually you need to stop those speedy waste thoughts. Following are reasons for taking the measures:

  • Energy saving: We require energy to do task, to face problems, to laugh, to cry, to almost everything. Creating waste thoughts deplete our energy and prevent us from using that “energy within us” when we need to face the negative situations.
  • No Room for Positivity: Your mind can think only one kind of thought at a particular time, which is either positive or negative. When you cover your mind with waste thoughts there will be no space for the positive thoughts to pop in and thus we can miss a lot of good opportunities in life.
  • Effect on daily life: Our daily life includes relationships, self and environment. Your waste thoughts effect those areas also:

 Relationships: You always over think on the problem even if they are not that big,  which increases the size of even a tiny problem in relationships. These waste, in the long run take place as misunderstandings, mistrust, jealousy, ego in relationship.

Self: The waste thoughts affects our health as well as mind. Stress, anxiety, depression, and other mental problems are all related to waste thoughts

Environment: Instead of acting on the right solution to solve environmental issues such as: global warming, pollution disasters etc., some of us just tend to create waste thoughts about what could be done before hand. This does not solve the any  problem, instead spread negative rumors and increases mental tension of even the people suffering from those issues.

  • Living in present: Past and future are not in your hands and only thing you have is present. Always thinking of past and future does nothing instead of wasting time, and energy. It also stops you to take action in present.

HOW TO ELIMINATE WASTE THOUGHTS:

Waste thoughts can be eliminated using two ways:

1. Self-Assessment:  

You can eliminate waste thoughts by working on self.

Self-Talk

This is the simplest and the most effective methods of all. Whenever you find yourself wondering between waste thoughts, just simply stop and talk to yourself and have a positive talk to self, asking: Whether my thoughts are helping me in any way? or Whether these thoughts depleting my energy? Your mind will pop up with an answer, based on which just keep the thoughts if positive or else change it with some good meaningful thoughts.

Slow the Traffic-

You have such a fast speed of thought today which needs to be Slowed down in order to lower the number of waste thoughts. For that take your smart phone and set alarms after every hour, and each time just check which quality of thoughts you are thinking. If the quality of thoughts is positive, and you are felling happy, then simply continue to think same, otherwise change or remove the thoughts immediately with the self-positive talk.

2.  Acting Externally:

Cutting the Sources of Thoughts

Maximum of your thoughts are generated from the type of media you entertain to listen. Example: News media, Television, Social Media, WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube etc. All negative information of Murders, Rape, Robbery, fights etc. create images in brain and causes you to think of it again and again, which create fear, anxiety in us when you are in similar situation. Even if nothing is wrong in your life, your brain tends to create thoughts as if they are part of your life. Thus there is need to stop collecting negative information from media instead collect good information from other sources. Different sources for collecting positive thoughts can be different for everyone, but whatever you seek, must make you feel happy. Few example for good sources can be: An inspirational book, positive videos on social media, calls from relatives, a walk in nature, friends etc.

Stop Questioning

Instead to ask the question like, “why did this happened to me”, “why”, “what”, “when” “how” seek for the solution of the problems. These waste thoughts just waste time and energy and gives no solution, thus focus on the solution and just take action.

Diary writing

Many of our successful people have solved their biggest issues by just the “Power of Writing”. Writing is a tool to have a self-talk which eliminate huge traffic of waste thoughts. To do this, just take a paper or a diary, grab a pen, and write down the problem. Be very honest while writing. You will be amazed by getting solutions to the problem by writing it down through your hand. Just write as if you are discussing it to somebody. This will clear your mind with waste thoughts and you will feel light and calm.

Seeking help from God

Whenever you find stuck in any toughest situation, which you can’t explain or discuss to anyone, just take out some time for yourself, find a calm place, close your eyes, imaging your god in front of you and speak or narrate him the problem very honestly. God is our father, he helps everyone in this world, and for stopping the waste thoughts, just speak up any waste thought to him and wait for a thought to reach to you in form of solution. Leave even the solution on to him and free yourself with the burden of solving your problem and enjoy the lightness in your heart.

Being in Present

Don’t think of past and future just focus on present and act in the present. This will close all doors for your waste thoughts to enter into your life.

    Great Motivational thoughts..If everybody is think like that lots of our problem will be resolve. Self- Assessment is very important.

  6. No thought is a WASTE
    THE MORE TO TRY TO STOP 🛑
    THE MORE IT ACCUMULATES
    So its always to allow and pass by any thought that comes to our mind instead keep a distance from it…..that’s the right way to inculcate positivity and get rid of negativity.

    Regards

    1. Rightly said dear…. Our mind can never be thoughtless…
      This blog just suggest some ways to “not let them accumulates”… Stoping waste thoughts is in our hand… The momment we decide to stop them.. Next we need is to “how to do that”.. Thats where my blog helps…..

      1. The more you try to stop…The more it accumulates.So let just all thoughts without sticking to each thought literally.That’s my motto here in my blog.🙏

  7. Thanks for these tips. I do find myself thinking of negative things. These suggestions may help. I like the one about eliminating negative media. I think exposure to too much of that creates a pessimistic mindset. Yes, there are problems in the world, but only contemplating on those problems is not going to solve them. And you can’t control or change everything. So instead, you should focus on what you do have control over and implement changes to improve your own and others’ lives. 🙂

  8. I like the part about slowing down thought traffic. That is a great way to view it.
    Also to go to our father in Heaven. It’s true, he has said to put our burdens on him. He cares for us.

    Thank you for a most thoughtful post

  9. Thank You for Writing this Dear! 🙂 Although I must say that, Questioning Everything is Quite Important, To seek the Answers, to find the Wisdom Within, Though of course, You can Do anything in “Excess”, So Yes, Stay Balanced And Well <3 🙂

    1. Very true dear… Even i do these things. Asking questions in order to get the solution is good.
      But we just need to be aware of that “line of excess”.. Because pf which we get entangled in asking question insted of acting on the solution…
      Thanks for the wisdom Reino..

  10. Great read! I’m certainly an over thinker, but more aware of that now. I find God and writing to be my greatest outlets for eliminating my waste thoughts.

  11. Being “aware” of “overthing” is the most difficult part of eliminating it… U are aware of it now.. Already a atep ahead.. Good job… nelson… 👍
