How to get rid of negative thoughts

You can become a glass-half full kind of person with Bernstein's "~ing Equation." It's a 30-day adventurous repetition of physical activity, positive affirmations and creative visualization that will bulldoze your negative thought patterns to create constructive change and move you forward.

From releasing romantic illusions to stretching beyond your ego, the ~ing Equation can be applied to an infinite number of areas to reach serenity and set yourself free.

Test-drive the three simple steps of the ~ing Equation:

  • Rethinking: Retell your stories and actively replace negative thoughts with upbeat ideas. Unhealed issues are the ego's playground for nasty self-beliefs - don't let these beliefs overpower your new thoughts.

  • Moving: Match up a physical activity with each area of life that needs a makeover to allow a change in those negative aspects on both a mind and body level.

  • Receiving x 30 days: Start by meditating to let go of the left brain's practicality and welcome the right brain's intuition and creativity. Immediately following, do a stream-of-consciousness "~ing writing" exercise, an opportunity to spill those unconscious thoughts onto the page. The thirty-day repetition of the ~ing Equation will allow you to truly experience results.
