Why is it that it seemed so much easier to criticize a person than praise them? Why is it so much easier to join the bandwagon of negative people than positive ones? This is not about judgment but sometimes, it can be easy for most people to just be negative about most things. This is also true with ASN nurses. They sometimes stay more on the negative stuff. Maybe because the pull of thinking negatively is much stronger, so how can an ASN nurse combat the feeling of negativity and focus the energy on positivism?
The first thing that one should consider is to practice positive affirmation. This is a good way for the negative things to flow out of the system. When there is positive affirmation, it can help in making a person feel better about himself. Positive affirmation is a way for a person to combat the nagging thoughts that will not be beneficial for work as well as the development of the person's life.
The second thing that one can do in order to avoid negativity is to ready books that promote positive thoughts and energy. There are many of these books in the market and they are really helpful tools to combat the blues away. Negative thoughts start with negative emotions so it can be helpful if we combat these emotions by reading books that drive away negative thoughts.
The third thing one can choose to do is to be with people who are positive influence. This means that those colleges who do nothing but complain about their lives should be avoided at all costs. It is not wrong to rant or rave but to do it regularly can cause others to absorb the negative feeling. People who have positive outlook in life should be the one to look for especially in the nursing profession.
Being an ASN nurse is already a difficult job to do. There are already many demands that are being asked in the day to day responsibilities. It can help a lot if one has to face all these challenges in a positive way than the negative way. It can do wonders not only in being motivated but how well one can manage the stress. If positive actions are practiced, then it can pave the way to a happier, more contented and less stressful life of an ASN. Being positive is the best way to move forward.
