You will end up wasting more time and ruining the present. Accept that some things can’t be changed but you can learn form them to make your future better.
Take a break from watching TV, Newspapers, and Radio. Most of these media have aggressive and disturbing message which mess up you mental and emotional state. Too much negativity from this media prevents you from achieving inner peace. They induce fear, anger and hatred which are recipes for internal turmoil.
Happiness is mostly achieved by calming your mind.
Also, regarding negativity, avoid a company of negative people. Stay away form people who want to self destruct or talk of negative things all the time. These speeches end up being printed into your subconscious mind. They will be manifested involuntarily within thus inducing boredom, anger and depression.
Maintain good life practices like good sleep and exercising. Sleeping puts your mind to rest and renews you for the next day. On the other hand, physical activity releases your tensions. It also helps in supplying more oxygen to your brain which induces a better feeling. Spare sometime everyday for running or working out.
Learn to destruct negative thinking. Whenever you start feeling depressed put some music and try to dance. When you get upset leave the scene and take a walk for a few minutes. Settle down or come back when your emotionally and mentally calm.
