Challenge your negative thinking with positive statements and realistic thinking. When encountering thoughts that make you feel anxious , challenge those thoughts by asking yourself questions that will maintain objectivity and common sense. Practice positive thinking. Avoid unhealthy thinking styles, including catastrophizing, mind reading and personalizing. Focus instead on your surroundings and really listen to what people are saying – not the negative thoughts in your head.
