Your thoughts create a soundtrack that colors your entire life. Thinking of negative potentialities, being suspicious of others or worrying creates a discordant accompaniment that makes you feel bad. The more you dredge up and entertain stories from the past, the more of a habit it becomes. You’ve already lived through those episodes once, there’s no upside to reliving them. This unnecessary recycling of old complaints simply takes you down. The remedy is to consciously nip the temptation to retell unpleasant stories by focusing instead on something in your immediate surroundings that you can easily…
