I’ve been a long time believer that if you surround yourself with positivity and recognise the best of a bad situation you will be able to reshape your mind and thinking. As a sufferer of Depression and Anxiety for over 10 years now, one of the most useful tools I use on a daily basis is positive reinforcement.
Showing gratitude for even the littlest of moments in each day, no matter how bad the day has been, or how down I am feeling, can make a world of difference. Being able to write these down, to revisit what I have previously been grateful for, to journal my thoughts and feelings is such a powerful tool.
With this in mind, Two-Way Talk was created. A 50-day journal to reflect on both the positive and negative aspects of each day. Allowing yourself to view the positive and negative aspects of the day doesn’t close the door on any feelings from each day, yet allows you to assess them and release the feelings that do not serve you anymore.
The first step is to record your frustrations. The perforated edge allows you to tear, scrunch and toss the page away to RELEASE all those daily negative thoughts/moments. Writing down the frustrations of the day allows them to move from our emotional brains to our logical brains. This allows us to view them in a new light, understand these frustrations that have arisen, and once we are ready, we can tear them away from the day, releasing them, allowing us to shift our focus and mindset to what we are grateful for.
Flip the journal and your mindset to RECOGNISE that despite the frustrations there has been some good in each day. Utilising 3 positives from the day, it is best to provide detail into the positives, that when revisited, it will be clear why these 3 moments had an encouraging effect on you. At the bottom of each day, reflect on what made the day a recognisable one. You will notice these pages are not encouraged to be ripped out, as reflection of our past achievements is great motivation for those more difficult days. Upon completion of the 50-day journey you will be left with 50 pages of positive thoughts and reflections.
Releasing my daily frustrations and recognising the good in each day has helped me through some extremely dark times in my life and I hope using Two-Way Talk can help others reshape their outlook on the world and improve their overall well-being.
I encourage you to take a leap of faith, to begin your 50-day journey and to make a commitment to seeing your 3 positives from each day, reflecting on what you are grateful for from each day and release your frustrations so that you have more time to focus on the positives in this amazing thing we call life.
