There are many simple, easy tricks to help you avoid this spiral of destructive thoughts. Find the time to gain some perspective on life. Step outside yourself for a minute and look at the bigger picture. Here’s how.

- Imagine the future – One of the biggest worries in life is our future. We can’t always see the path ahead and we lose sight of what’s really important. Take a minute to imagine your life in ten years. Where do you really want to be? That will give you clarity and direction.
